FIELD DEVICE INTEGRATION (FDI) –
Part 101-2: Profiles – Foundation Fieldbus HSE
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 62769-101-2 has been prepared by subcommittee 65E: Devices and

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

measurement, control and automation.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2015. This edition

constitutes a technical revision.

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous

edition:

a) support for generic protocol extension for faster adoption of other technologies;

b) support for Package developers to build EDDs targeted for today’s EDD bases system under

a single development tool.

4.2.4 Protocol version information

IEC 62769-4 defines an element type named InterfaceT for the Catalog XML Schema. Element

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

information about the applied communication protocol profile. The value follows the

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

The major version part of VersionT shall be set to the ITK_VER parameter. The minor and builds

parts shall be set to 0.
EXAMPLE For ITK_VER 5, the value for InterfaceT is 5.0.0.
4.3 Associating a Package with a CP 1/2 device
4.3.1 Device type identification mapping

CP 1/2 device types are uniquely identified by the parameters MANUFAC_ID, DEVICE_TYPE

and DEV_REV found in the Resource Block of the Function Block VFD. These parameters are

used to associate a given device instance to an FDI Device Package. These parameters are

mapped to the FDI Device Package Catalog according to Table 3.

4.3.2 Device type revision mapping
Each device type is identified per 4.3.1. A device may also include a parameter

COMPATIBILITY_REV from the Resource Block. This parameter specifies the lowest device

version (DEV_REV) that a new device can replace while maintaining compatibility with a prior

FDI Device Package.

4.4.3 FunctionalGroup Identification definition

As defined in IEC 62541-100, each device representation in the FDI Server hosted Information

Model shall contain a protocol specific FunctionalGroup called Identification. This

FunctionalGroup organizes variables found in the Resource Block of the device type instance.

The FunctionalGroup Identification for CP 1/2 is defined in Table 6.

4.4.4 BlockType property mapping

CP 1/2 device types are block-oriented according to IEC 62541-100. IEC 62769-5 specifies the

mapping of EDDL BLOCK_A elements to block types and instances.

The BLOCK_A maps as a subtype of the topology element BlockType and inherits the properties

as per IEC 62541-100. The mapping of the inherited properties of BlockType is specified in

Table 7.

IEC 62769-101-2:2020 © IEC 2020 – 11 –
4.4.5 Mapping to Block ParameterSet
The ParameterSet is relative to each Block. The ParameterSet includes the

CHARACTERISTICS records of the block that contains all the parameters found in the

PARAMETERS, LOCAL_PARAMETERS and LIST_ITEMS.
The browse name of the parameters found in the PARAMETERS and LOCAL_PARAMETERS

is the member name in the respective lists. For example, ST_REV is the browse name of the

Static Revision parameter. LIST_ITEMS do not have member names; therefore, the browse

name of each LIST in the LIST_ITEMS is the item name of the list.
4.5 Topology elements
4.5.1 ConnectionPoint definition

The ConnectionPoint type ConnectionPoint_Foundation_HSE shall be used to identify CP 1/2

network communication and is defined in Table 8. The ConnectionPoint_Foundation_HSE type

is a sub type of the abstract type ConnectionPointType defined in IEC 62541-100.

The Address property can be an IPv4 or IPv6 address. For IPv4 addresses, the address shall

be stored in the last 4 octets and all other octets shall be set to zero.

The OrdinalNumber property reflects the position of the VFD within the SMIB VFD list. For

devices exposing multiple FB VFDs, the OrdinalNumber property is mandatory to address the

FB VFD. For devices with a single FB VFD the OrdinalNumber property can be omitted. Devices

exposed as instances of type DeviceType define their Connection
