Industrial-process measurement and control - Data structures and elements in process equipment catalogues - Part 12: Lists of Properties (LOP) for Flow Measuring Equipment for electronic data exchange (IEC 61987-12:2016)

This part of IEC 61987 provides an
• operating list of properties (OLOP) for the description of the operating parameters and the
collection of requirements for a flow measuring equipment and
• device lists of properties (DLOP) for the description of a number of flow measuring
equipment types.
The structures of the OLOP and the DLOP correspond to the general structures defined in
IEC 61987-11 and agree with the fundamentals for the construction of LOPs defined in
IEC 61987-10.
Aspects other than the OLOP, needed in different electronic data exchange processes
described in IEC 61987-10, will be published in IEC 61987-921.
Libraries of properties and of blocks used in the LOPs in this standard are listed in Annex C
and Annex D.

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 61987-12 has been prepared by subcommittee 65E: Devices and

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

measurement, control and automation.
The text of this standard is based on the following documents:

INTRODUCTION

The exchange of product data between companies, business systems, engineering tools, data

systems within companies and, in the future, control systems (electrical, measuring and

control technology) can run smoothly only when both the information to be exchanged and the

use of this information has been clearly defined.

Prior to this standard, requirements on process control devices and systems were specified by

customers in various ways when suppliers or manufacturers were asked to quote for suitable

equipment. The suppliers in their turn described the devices according to their own

documentation schemes, often using different terms, structures and media (paper, databases,

CDs, e-catalogues, etc.). The situation was similar in the planning and development process,

with device information frequently being duplicated in a number of different information

technology (IT) systems.

Any method that is capable of recording all existing information only once during the planning

and ordering process and making it available for further processing, gives all parties involved

an opportunity to concentrate on the essentials. A precondition for this is the standardization

of both the descriptions of the objects and the exchange of information.

This standard series proposes a method for standardization which will help both suppliers and

users of measuring equipment to optimize workflows both within their own companies and in

their exchanges with other companies. Depending on their role in the process, engineering

firms may be considered here to be either users or suppliers.

The method specifies measuring equipment by means of blocks of properties. These blocks

are compiled into lists of properties (LOPs), each of which describes a specific equipment

(device) type. This standard series covers both properties that may be used in an inquiry or a

proposal and detailed properties required for integration of the equipment in computer

systems for other tasks.

IEC 61987-10 defines structure elements for constructing lists of properties for electrical and

process control equipment in order to facilitate automatic data exchange between any two

computer systems in any possible workflow, for example engineering, maintenance or

purchasing workflow and to allow both the customers and the suppliers of the equipment to

optimize their processes and workflows. IEC 61987-10 also provides the data model for

assembling the LOPs.

IEC 61987-11 specifies the generic structure for operating and device lists of properties

(OLOPs and DLOPs). It lays down the framework for further parts of IEC 61987 in which

complete LOPs for device types measuring a given physical quantity and using a particular

measuring principle will be specified. The generic structure may also serve as a basis for the

specification of LOPs for other industrial-process control instrument types such as control

valves and signal processing equipment.

IEC 61987-12 concerns flow measuring equipment. It provides one operating LOP for all types

of flow transmitter which can be used, for example, as a request for various sorts of quotation.

The DLOPs provided in this standard for a range of flow transmitter types can be used in very

different ways: in the computer systems of equipment manufacturers and suppliers; in CAE

and similar systems of EPC contractors and other engineering companies; and especially in

the various plant maintenance systems used by plant owners. The OLOP and the DLOPs

provided correspond to the guidelines specified in IEC 61987-10 and IEC 61987-11.

4 General
4.1 Overview

The LOPs provided by this document are intended for use in electronic data exchange

processes performed between any two computer systems. The computer systems can both

belong to the same company or they can belong to different companies as described in Annex

C of IEC 61987-10:2009.

The OLOP for the family of flow measuring equipment is to be found in Annex A while the

DLOPs of the individual flow device types are to be found in Annex B.

Structural elements such as LOP type, block and property defined in this standard are

available in electronic form in the “Automation equipment” domain of the IEC Common Data

Dictionary (CDD).
4.2 Depiction of OLOPs and DLOPs
4.2.1 General

The properties of the OLOPs and DLOPs used in this part of IEC 61987 have been created in

conformance to the requirements of the IEC 61360 series. As such, the structural elements,

properties and attributes to be found in the IEC Common Data Dictionary are normative.

4.2.2 Structural roles

The entities within a list of properties can have one of a number of structural roles.

a) Property
A property exists as a property only.
b) Ref. property + Block

A reference property connects a block to the superordinate block or LOP in which it is

embedded.

Properties and sub-blocks listed below a block name and placed one position to the right

are elements of the block. A block ends when another block name appears in the same

column as the block name or in any other column to its left.

The reference property has the same preferred name as the block to which it refers. All

attributes of these properties are available in the IEC Common Data Dictionary (CDD).

c) Cardinality property

A cardinality property is connected to the block which immediately follows it. The value of

the property (0 … n) in a transaction file determines the number of times the associated

block shall be repeated. It is identified by the identifier in the column “Property identifier”.

The preferred name of a cardinality property is “Number of “, where is

derived from name of the block with which it is associated.

In the transaction file (see examples in 4.3), it can be seen that a block has been repeated

twice:
– the cardinality property directly before the block has a value greater than 1,

– the name of the repeated block is extended by “_” followed by the repetition number.

Example:

If the block “Signal function” is repeated 3 times, the following construction occurs in the transaction file:

“number of signal function” has the value “3” - cardinality property
“Signal function_1” - first repeated block
“Signal function_2” - second repeated block
---------------------- Page: 13 ----------------------
SIST EN 61987-12:2016
– 8 – IEC 61987-12:2016  IEC 2016
“Signal function_3” - third repeated block
d) Ref. property + Block

This role is similar to b) but the block concerned can be repeated according to value of the

cardinality property which precedes it.
e) Polymorphic control property

A polymorphic control property provides the means of introducing complete blocks of

properties describing different realizations of a particular device function, for instance

inputs and outputs. The property has a value list containing the designations of the blocks

that may be introduced. When in a transaction file a polymorphic control property is

assigned a value, the corresponding block follows (see examples in Tables 2 and 3).

A polymorphic control property is identified in the IEC Common Data Dictionary by the

identifier in the column “Property identifier”. The preferred name of a polymorphic property

is “ type“, where is normally the derived from name of the block with which

it is associated.
f) Ref. property + Polymorphic block
This role is similar to b) but the block concerned is created by polymorphism.

g) Polymorphic control property with the fixed value: “”

This property appears directly behind the polymorphic block property. It is the same

property as the polymorphic control property for the block, but with the fixed value used to

create the block (see IEC 61987-10).
4.2.3 Marking of polymorphic areas

To help identify the possible polymorphic blocks in a list of properties in a printable version of

this standard, a number with grey background has been added to the rightmost column of the

DLOP to indicate the properties associated with the block. It should be noted that in

transaction file, only the polymorphic block selected from value list of the polymorphic control

property would appear in the superordinate block.
Block Name (containing a polymorphic area)
Properties and sub-blocks
(of the common part, valid for all alternative cases)
Name of the polymorphic control property (which has a value list consisting
of exactly n values)
Block Name (for alternative case 1)
