Title Industrial communication networks - Fieldbus specifications - Part 5-3: Application layer service definition - Type 3 elements
Project Number 24087
Abstract/Scope IEC 61158-5-3:2010(E) defines in an abstract way the externally visible service provided by Type 3 fieldbus Applicatio Layer in terms of an abstract model for defining application resources (objects) capable of being manipulated by users via the use of the FAL service, the primitive actions and events of the service; the parameters associated with each primitive action and event, and the form which they take; and the interrelationship between these actions and events, and their valid sequences. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2007 and constitutes a technical revision. The main change with respect to the previous edition is the correction in (referencing the error-codes in IEC 61158-6-3, 5.3.17 to maintain the codes only in one place).

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
