Field device integration (FDI) - Part 100: Profiles - Generic protocols

IEC 62769-100:2020 specifies an FDI profile of IEC 62769 for generic protocols. That means that all interfaces are defined, and a host can add support for more protocols without changing its implementation. Nevertheless, there are some protocol-specific definitions (PSD) that need to be specified per protocol using this profile. Annex C specifies what PSDs need to be defined per protocol so that FDI Device Packages, FDI Communication Packages for Gateways and FDI Communication Servers, FDI Communication Servers, Gateways and Devices supporting such a protocol can work together in a host not aware about this specific protocol.

Intégration des appareils de terrain (FDI) - Partie 100: Profils - Protocoles génériques

L'IEC 62769-100:2020 spécifie un profil FDI de l'IEC 62769 pour les protocoles génériques. Cela signifie que toutes les interfaces sont définies et qu'un hôte peut ajouter la prise en charge de plusieurs protocoles sans modifier sa mise en œuvre. Néanmoins, il est nécessaire de spécifier certaines définitions spécifiques au protocole (PSD) à l'aide de ce profil. L'Annexe C spécifie les PSD qu’il est nécessaire de définir par protocole, de sorte que les Paquetages d'appareils FDI, les Paquetages de communication FDI pour les Passerelles et les Serveurs de communication FDI, les Serveurs de communication FDI, les Passerelles et les Appareils prenant en charge ce type de protocole puissent fonctionner ensemble dans un hôte, quel que soit ce protocole spécifique.

FIELD DEVICE INTEGRATION (FDI) –
Part 100: Profiles – Generic protocols
FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 62769-100 has been prepared by subcommittee 65E: Devices and

integration in enterprise systems, of IEC technical committee 65: Industrial-process

measurement, control and automation.

FCG TS62769-100 Edition 1.1, Field Device Integration Part 100: Profiles – Generic

Protocols, a specification of the FieldComm Group, PROFIBUS Nutzerorganisation e. V., OPC

Foundation and FDT Group, serves as a basis for the elaboration of this standard.

The text of this International Standard is based on the following documents:

FIELD DEVICE INTEGRATION (FDI) –
Part 100: Profiles – Generic protocols
1 Scope

This part of IEC 62769 specifies an FDI profile of IEC 62769 for generic protocols. That

means that all interfaces are defined, and a host can add support for more protocols without

changing its implementation. Nevertheless, there are some protocol-specific definitions (PSD)

that need to be specified per protocol using this profile. Annex C specifies what PSDs need to

be defined per protocol so that FDI Device Packages, FDI Communication Packages for

Gateways and FDI Communication Servers, FDI Communication Servers, Gateways and

Devices supporting such a protocol can work together in a host not aware about this specific

protocol.

NOTE A host not using an FDI Communication Server but a proprietary mechanism for communication defines its

own means to deal with this profile to support several protocols without changing its implementation. This is

specific to the proprietary way how the communication driver is bound to the host.

4 Profile for Generic Protocols
4.1 General

This profile document to the FDI specification in IEC 62769 specifies the protocol specifics

needed for FDI Packages describing Communication Servers, Gateways and Devices.

For Communication Servers, this document defines protocol specifics as these need to be

considered in the Information Model hosted by the Communication Servers.
4.2 Catalog profile
4.2.1 Protocol support file
4.2.1.1 FDI Device Package
Protocol-specific attachments are mentioned in the Package Catalog as defined in

IEC 62769-5. As this document defines a profile generically suitable for many protocols, it

does not define requirements for any protocol-specific attachments. However, it does also not

prevent the usage of protocol-specific attachments. The PSDs (see Annex C) define the

requirements on the need of ProtocolSupportFiles for a specific protocol. However, the

configuration of a device using an FDI Device Package shall not require the usage of a

protocol-specific attachment. Table 1 specifies the parameters of the ProtocolSupportFile in

the FDI Device Package in case one or many are provided.

4.2.1.2 FDI Communication Packages
The same rules as for FDI Device Packages apply.
4.2.2 CommunicationProfile definition

IEC 62769-4 defines a CommunicationProfileT string for the Catalog XML schema. The string

is protocol-specific and defined as ProfileIdentifier in the PSD (see Annex C).
4.2.3 Profile device

A Profile Package shall provide the catalog values for profile devices, enabling the FDI Server

to leverage a generic device description, if a specific one is not available. The definitions in

Table 2 focus on catalog content that is vendor-independent.

Element Attribute Content
PackageType — Profile
Manufacturer — Empty

DeviceModel — The format of the DeviceModel is protocol specific and details on the

format are defined in the PSD (see Annex C).
In order to assign a scan result with a profile package the ProfileId of the
scan result shall be mapped to the DeviceModel of the profile package.
4.2.4 Protocol version information

IEC 62769-4 defines an element type named InterfaceT for the Catalog XML schema. The

element type InterfaceT contains an element named Version, which is supposed to provide

version information about the applied communication protocol profile. The value shall follow

the IEC 62769-4 defined version information schema defined in the element type VersionT.

The PSDs (see Annex C) define the mapping of versions of a specific protocol to this field.

4.3 Associating a Package with a device
4.3.1 Device type identification mapping

The purpose of device-type identification mapping is to enable FDI host systems to compare

the scan result against the topology representation in the Information Model. FDI host

systems shall also be enabled to determine the FDI Device Package that fits for a device

entry contained in the scan result. This will enable the user of an FDI host system to

synchronize the Information Model with the actual installation.
