This part of IEC 61784 defines a set of protocol specific communication profiles based primarily on the IEC 61158 series, to be used in the design of devices involved in communications in factory manufacturing and process control.
Each profile selects specifications for the communications protocol stack at a device. It contains a minimal set of required services at the application layer and specification of options in intermediate layers defined through references. If no application layer is included, then a minimal set of required services at the Data-link layer is specified. The appropriate references to the protocol specific types are given in each communication profile family or associated profiles.
NOTE All profiles are based on standards or draft standards or International Standards published by the IEC or from standards or International Standards established by other standards bodies or open standards processes.
Each profile selects an appropriate consistent and compatible subset of services and protocols from the total available set that is defined and modelled in IEC 61158. For the selected subset of services and protocols, the profile also describes any possible or necessary constraints in parameter values.
