ANSI INCITS 403
for Information Technology Automation/Drive Interface - Commands (ADC)
|Publication Date:||1 January 2005|
This standard defines the model and command set extensions to facilitate operation of automation/drive interface devices. The clauses of this standard, implemented in conjunction with the applicable clauses of SPC-2 and SPC-3, fully specify the standard command set for automation/drive interface devices.
The objective of this standard is to provide the following:
a) Permit an application client to communicate over a SCSI service delivery subsystem, with a logical unit that declares itself to be an automation/drive interface device in the device type field of the INQUIRY command response data (see SPC-3);
b) define commands unique to the automation/drive interface device type; and
c) define commands and parameters to manage the operation of the automation/drive interface device type.
Figure 1 shows the relationship of this standard to the other standards and related projects in the SCSI family of standards as of the publication of this standard.
