International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies



Reference EN 61784-1:2010
Title Industrial communication networks - Profiles - Part 1: Fieldbus profiles
Project Number 22474
Abstract/Scope IEC 61784-1:2010(E) defines a set of protocol specific communication profiles based primarily on the IEC 61158 series, to be used in the design of devices involved in communications in factory manufacturing and process control. Each profile selects specifications for the communications protocol stack at a device. It contains a minimal set of required services at the application layer and specification of options in intermediate layers defined through references. If no application layer is included, then a minimal set of required services at the Data-link layer is specified. The appropriate references to the protocol specific types are given in each communication profile family or associated profiles. This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2007. This edition constitutes a technical revision. The main changes with respect to the previous edition are listed below: - update of the dated references to the IEC 61158 series, to IEC 61784-2, to the IEC 61784-3 series, to the IEC 61784-5 series and to IEC 61918 throughout the document; - update of the titles of the referenced documents and references if needed; - update of selection tables for CPF 1, CPF 2, CPF 5 and CPF 8.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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