Function blocks – Part 4: Rules for compliance profiles
|Publication Date:||1 January 2013|
|ICS Code (Industrial process measurement and control):||25.040.40|
This part of IEC 61499 defines rules for the development of compliance profiles, which specify the features of IEC 61499-1 and 61499-2 to be implemented in order to promote the following attributes of IEC 61499-based systems, devices and software tools:
• interoperability of devices from multiple suppliers;
• portability of software between software tools of multiple suppliers; and
• configurability of devices from multiple vendors by software tools of multiple suppliers.
NOTE 1 The sensor/actuator links designated #1 and #2 in Figure 1 may be non-interoperable. However, it is intended that systems complying with a particular profile may show the transfer of events and data from sensors on one link to actuators on another link using appropriately configured and interconnected service interface function blocks.
NOTE 2 Compliance profiles may extend their scope beyond that shown in Figure 1 to include interoperability of sensors and actuators.
NOTE 3 Suppliers of software tools ensure that their products conform to the requirements of IEC 61499-2 as well as any specific requirements defined in compliance profiles applicable to their particular software tools.
