Industrial process measurement, control and automation - Digital nameplate (IEC 63365:2022)

IEC 63365:2022 applies to products used in the process measurement, control and automation industry. It establishes a concept and requirements for the digital nameplate and provides alternative electronically readable solutions (e.g. 2D codes, RFID or firmware) to current conventional plain text marking on the nameplate or packaging of products.
The digital nameplate information is contained in the electronically readable medium affixed to the product, the packaging or accompanying documents. The digital nameplate information is available offline without Internet connection. After electronic reading, all digital nameplate information is displayed in a human readable text format. The digital nameplate also includes the Identification Link String according to IEC 61406-1 which provides additional online information for the product.
This document does not specify the contents of the conventional nameplate, which are subject to regional or national regulations and standards.

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.

IEC 63365 has been prepared by subcommittee 65E: Devices and integration in enterprise

systems, of IEC technical committee 65: Industrial Process Measurement, control and

automation. It is an International Standard.
The text of this International Standard is based on the following documents:

INTRODUCTION

The primary purpose of a nameplate is to clearly identify the device and its manufacturer. Legal

marks or approval symbols indicate conformity with the regulations for placing the device on

the market and for safe use.

The project "Digital Nameplate" was started in response to the needs of manufacturers of

explosion-protected equipment and operators of electrical plants in explosion hazardous areas.

One objective is to ensure that all of the necessary information can be marked on the

equipment, particularly considering the extent of the information required in the field of

explosion protection. The requirements for marking products for the global markets have

become as extensive that it is often no longer possible to include all of the necessary

information on the nameplate, especially of smaller products (e.g. sensors). As an example, in

Europe, different EU Directives and harmonized standards can apply to the same product, e.g.

for electric safety, explosion safety, safety of machinery, pressure safety or food safety. If the

product is to be sold worldwide, additional markings and approval symbols are required, e.g.

IEC Ex marking, Ex marking for the North American market, UK CA marking for UK, EAC for

the Eurasian Economic Area, RCM for Australia or CCC for China.

Within the context of smart manufacturing, it is also anticipated that products will have to be

electronically identifiable in future. Equipment manufacturers can use machine-readable

marking in the production process to automatically control the material flow by using a barcode.

Operators can easily identify the product at the incoming inspection.Service engineers or the

responsible authorities can electronically check all the required data and information for the

application and safe use. The data from the machine-readable nameplate can be transmitted

directly to an ERP system (Enterprise Resource Planning system) for error-free stocktaking.

Operators and users have access to the device data in digital format.

One intention of the (offline) digital nameplate is to reduce the required space of the

conventional nameplate. In the long term it is expected that the digital nameplate can replace

the conventional text on the nameplate saving a lot of space, especially on small products.

This document describes alternative electronically-readable solutions to the current,

conventional, plain text marking on the nameplate or packaging. It describes marking

technologies that use 2D codes, transponders or the firmware of the products. In the case of a

2D code or transponder, the stored data can be read by commonly available scanning devices,

e.g. smartphones. If the marking is stored in the firmware of the product, the nameplate can be

shown, for example, on the product display or the data can be read via an electronic interface

remotely.

Furthermore, the IEC 61406-1 is in development for a unique product identification via an

Identification Link. That standard enables manufacturers to provide all product related data and

documents via an Internet address in an electronic format. Product documentation such as

technical information, operating instructions and product certificates can be downloaded. That

standard defines a specific 2D or RFID code, which contains only the Identification Link string

with limited characters. In IEC 63365, the Identification Link string is included as the first

property in the digital nameplate, followed by the detailed marking properties. If an Internet

connection to the manufacturer's website is available, additional product data (digital twin) and

documentation can be accessed.

IEC 63365:2022 © IEC 2022 – 7 –

This document is also intended to increase acceptance of digital nameplates among legislative

bodies. A long-term goal is to replace the conventional nameplate with an electronically

readable nameplate as far as possible. Regulators require marking to be applied to devices

permanently, clearly and legibly. This requirement could be met with digital marking as well.

Digital nameplates that are permanently affixed to the product and provide the necessary data

without the need for an Internet connection come very close to plain text marking. To ensure

greater acceptance, the nameplate shows a minimum amount of marking in plain text. During a

transition period, both, the plain text and the digital marking can be applied simultaneously at

the product. Today electronic marking is being increasingly implemented and accepted on the

international markets.

ISO/IEC 22603-1 was recently published and specifies a digital label representating the product

marking. But that standard provides the product marking via a link to a Webserver which

contains the relevant information and does not contain the marking directly in the digital code.

INDUSTRIAL PROCESS MEASUREMENT, CONTROL AND AUTOMATION –
DIGITAL NAMEPLATE
1 Scope

This International standard applies to products used in the process measurement, control and

automation industry. It establishes a concept and requirements for the digital nameplate and

provides alternative electronically readable solutions (e.g. 2D codes, RFID or firmware) to

current conventional plain text marking on the nameplate or packaging of products.

The digital nameplate information is contained in the electronically readable medium affixed to

the product, the packaging or accompanying documents. The digital nameplate information is

available offline without Internet connection. After electronic reading, all digital nameplate

information is displayed in a human readable text format. The digital nameplate also includes

the Identification Link String according to IEC 61406-1 which provides additional online

information for the product.

This document does not specify the contents of the conventional nameplate, which are subject

to regional or national regulations and standards.

63 FOREWORD

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

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

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

67 in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications, Technical Reports,

68 Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC Publication(s)”). Their

69 preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested in the subject dealt with

70 may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-governmental organizations liaising

71 with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely with the International Organization for

72 Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by agreement between the two organizations.

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

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

75 interested IEC National Committees.

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

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

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

79 misinterpretation by any end user.

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

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

82 any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in the latter.

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

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

85 services carried out by independent certification bodies.

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

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

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

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

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

91 Publications.

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

93 indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

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

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

96 IEC 63365 has been prepared by subcommittee SC65E: Devices and integration in enterprise

97 systems, of IEC technical committee TC65: Industrial Process Measurement, control and

98 automation. It is an International Standard.
99 The text of this International Standard is based on the following documents:

116 INTRODUCTION

117 The primary purpose of a nameplate is to clearly identify the device and its manufacturer. Legal

118 marks or approval symbols indicate conformity with the regulations for placing the device on

119 the market and for safe use.

120 The project "Digital Nameplate" was started in response to the needs of manufacturers of

121 explosion-protected equipment and operators of electrical plants in explosion hazardous areas.

122 One objective is to ensure that all of the necessary information can be marked on the

123 equipment, particularly considering the extent of the information required in the field of

124 explosion protection. The requirements for marking products for the global markets have

125 become as extensive that it is often no longer possible to include all of the necessary

126 information on the nameplate, especially of smaller products (e.g. sensors). As an example, in

127 Europe different EU Directives and harmonized standards may apply to the same product, e.g.

128 for electric safety, explosion safety, safety of machinery, pressure safety or food safety. If the

129 product will be sold worldwide additional markings and approval symbols are required, e.g. IEC

130 Ex marking, Ex marking for the North American market, UK CA marking for UK, EAC for the

131 Eurasian Economic Area, RCM for Australia or CCC for China.

132 Within the context of smart manufacturing, it is also anticipated that products will have to be

133 electronically identifiable in future. Equipment manufacturers can use machine-readable

134 marking in the production process to automatically control the material flow by using a barcode.

135 Operators can easily identify the product at the incoming inspection.Service engineers or the

136 responsible authorities can electronically check all the required data and information for the

137 application and safe use. The data from the machine-readable nameplate can be transmitted

138 directly to an ERP system (Enterprise Resource Planning system) for error-free stocktaking.

139 Operators and users have access to the device data in digital format.

140 One intention of the (offline) digital nameplate is to reduce the required space of the

141 conventional nameplate. In the long term it is expected that the digital nameplate can replace

142 the conventional text on the nameplate saving a lot of space, especially on small products.

143 This standard describes alternative electronically-readable solutions to the current,

144 conventional, plain text marking on the nameplate or packaging. It describes marking

145 technologies that use 2D codes, transponders or the firmware of the products. In the case of a

146 2D code or transponder, the stored data can be read by commonly available scanning devices,

147 e.g. smartphones. If the marking is stored in the firmware of the product, the nameplate can be

148 shown, for example, on the product display or the data can be read via an electronic interface

149 remotely.

150 Furthermore, the IEC 61406 is in development for a unique product identification via an

151 Identification Link. That standard enables manufacturers to provide all product related data and

152 documents via an Internet address in an electronic format. Product documentation such as

153 technical information, operating instructions and product certificates can be downloaded. That

154 standard defines a specific 2D or RFID code, which contains only the Identification Link string

155 with limited characters. In the IEC 63365 the Identification Link string is included as the first

156 property in the digital nameplate, followed by the detailed marking properties. If an Internet

157 connection to the manufacturer's website is available, additional product data (digital twin) and

158 documentation can be accessed.

159 This document is also intended to increase acceptance of digital nameplates among legislative

160 bodies. A long-term goal is to replace the conventional nameplate with an electronically

161 readable nameplate as far as possible. Regulators require marking to be applied to devices

162 permanently, clearly and legibly. This requirement might be met with digital marking as well.

163 Digital nameplates that are permanently affixed to the product and provide the necessary data

164 without the need for an Internet connection come very close to plain text marking. To ensure

165 greater acceptance, the nameplate must show a minimum amount of marking in plain text.

166 During a transition period, both, the plain text and the digital marking can be applied

---------------------- Page: 8 ----------------------

167 simultaneously at the product. Today electronic marking is being increasingly implemented and

168 accepted on the international markets.

169 ISO/IEC 22603-1 was recently published and specifies a digital label representating the product

170 marking. But that standard provides the product marking via a link to a Webserver which

171 contains the relevant information and does not contain the marking directly in the digital code.

173
174 Digital Nameplate
175 1 Scope

176 This standard applies to products used in the process measurement, control and automation

177 industry. It establishes a concept and requirements for the digital nameplate and provides

178 alternative electronically readable solutions (e.g. 2D codes, RFID or firmware) to current

179 conventional plain text marking on the nameplate or packaging of products.

180 The Digital Nameplate information is contained in the electronically readable medium affixed to

181 the product, the packaging or accompanying documents. The Digital Nameplate information is

182 available offline without Internet connection. After electronic reading, all Digital Nameplate

183 information is displayed in a human readable text format. The Digital Nameplate also includes

184 the Identification Link String according to IEC 61406 which provides additional online

185 information of the product.

186 This standard does not specify the contents of the conventional nameplate, which are subject

187 to regional or national regulations and standards.

252 4 Contents of the digital code
253 General

254 The information according to Annex A may be added in a digital code to the nameplate.

255 The digital code
256 • may store all information required by regional or national regulations and
257 • may contain additional information provided by the manufacturer.

258 Marks and symbols cannot be converted into the digital code on the nameplate, but may be

259 provided in the firmware. All information provided in the digital code that is not required

260 specifically in plain text by regional or national regulations can be removed from the human

261 readable text of the nameplate.

262 Note For security reasons a 2D reader that asks the user to activate a link to the URL is recommended. In general,

263 if the link is not activated, the embedded text is shown.
264 Data structure of the digital code

265 The information listed in Annex A can be converted into digital format. The data shall be

266 structured according to the following three categories:
267 • Basic information
268 • Technical specification
269 • Certificates

270 The first information of the digital nameplate should be an Identification Link string as per IEC

271 61406. This enables standard scanners to interpret the first line as a URL and, if an Internet

272 connection is available, to link to a product database.

273 An example of a conventional nameplate is shown in the upper part of Figure 1. This

274 nameplate represents an industrial level meter with several international certificates as an

275 explosion protected device. Due to the amount of information this nameplate occupies a large

276 area of 80 cm².

277 In the lower part of Figure 1 the corresponding digital nameplate is shown with the basic

278 information and the conformity symbols still visible in plaint text. The complete marking is

279 converted into the digital code. The digital nameplate including QR Code occupies an area of

280 42,5 cm², which is approximately half of the size of the conventional nameplate above.

281 The scan of the QR Code using a smartphone with standard scanner software is also shown

282 in Figure 1. The complete text marking including basic information is visible on the screen and

283 can be stored or transfered as a textfile.

318 Data description with characteristic names

319 The scanned digital code is human readable. For the correct interpretation of complex

320 nameplate data, the individual items of a nameplate can be described with characteristic names.

321 This requires more characters in the digital code and is illustrated for the example of an electric

322 motor in table 1. The digital nameplate with QR Code containing a general data description with

323 characteristic names is shown in Figure 2.
