Title Industrial communication networks - Profiles - Part 2: Additional fieldbus profiles for real-time networks based on ISO/IEC 8802-3
Project Number 20644
Abstract/Scope It Specifies performance indicators supporting classification schemes for Real-Time Ethernet (RTE) requirements profiles and related network components based on ISO/IEC 8802-3, IEC 61158 series, and IEC 61784-1; RTE solutions that are able to run in parallel with ISO/IEC 8802-3-based applications. These communication profiles are called Real-Time Ethernet communication profiles.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
