This part of IEC 62657 provides the wireless communication requirements dictated by the applications of wireless communication systems in industrial automation, and requirements of related context. The requirements are specified in a way that is independent of the wireless technology employed. The requirements are described in detail and in such a way as to be understood by a large audience, including readers who are not familiar with the industry applications.
Social aspects, environmental aspects, health aspects and market requirements for wireless communication systems in industrial automation are described to justify the wireless communication requirements.
This document also provides a rationale to successfully articulate the solutions of the wireless communication requirements proposed for the short-term and long-term. Coexistence management according to IEC 62657-2 is already applied in the short-term.
This document describes requirements of the industrial automation applications that can be used to ask for additional dedicated, worldwide unique spectrum. This additional spectrum is intended to be used for additional wireless applications while continuing using the current industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) bands.
This document provides useful information for the automation field professionals who are not familiar with the spectrum and wireless technologies.
Building automation is excluded from the scope because of the different usage constraints (for most non-industrial buildings it is normally difficult for the owner/operator to impose control over the presence and operation of radio equipment).
