active, Most Current
Organization: CENELEC
Publication Date: 1 May 2013
Status: active
Page Count: 16
ICS Code (Industrial process measurement and control): 25.040.40
scope:

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.

These attributes are illustrated in Figure 1.

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.

The specification of provisions for the facilitation of device interchangeability is beyond the scope of this part of IEC 61499
