FDI Specifications

FDI SPECIFICATIONS

FieldComm Group, FDT Group, OPC Foundation and PROFIBUS & PROFINET International are the  co-owners of the FDI specification. FieldComm Group develops and maintains the FDI Specifications in its working group structure, establishing and controlling new technology developments and enhancements that support the needs of the process automation industry. FieldComm Group manages the FDI Specifications and other related documents and provides related services and applications to end users.

The FDI Technical Specifications is a collection of 19 documents that specify the different aspects of the protocol and test procedures. Additionally, the FDI Technical Specification package includes the Unified EDDL Technical Specifications which consists of 3 documents. The specifications is a package that includes all of the individual documents in the set (total of 22).

      This document specifies the technology management for all technologies specified and referenced in the Field Device Integration (FDI) standard. It specifies the FDI Technology Version and the versions of the referenced standards and technologies.

      This part of FCG TS62769 describes the concepts and overview of the Field Device Integration (FDI) specifications. The detailed motivation for the creation of this technology is also described (see 4.1). Reading this document is helpful to understand the other parts of this multi-part standard.

      This part of FCG TS62769 defines the FDI Information Model. One of the main tasks of the Information Model is to reflect the topology of the automation system. Therefore it represents the devices of the automation system as well as the connecting communication networks including their properties, relationships, and the operations that can be performed on them. The types in the AddressSpace of the FDI Server constitute some kind of catalogue, which is built from FDI Packages.

      The fundamental types for the FDI Information Model are well defined in OPC UA for Devices (IEC 62541-100). The FDI Information Model specifies extensions for a few special cases and otherwise explains how these types are used and how the contents are built from elements of DevicePackages.

      This part of FCG TS62769 specifies the technology mapping for the concepts described in the Field Device Integration (FDI) standard. The technology mapping focuses on implementation of the components FDI Client and User Interface Plug-in (UIP) in the specified technologies for the WORKSTATION platform and the MOBILE platform as defined in FCG TS62769-4. There are individual subparts for the currently supported technologies .NET and HTML5.

      This part of FCG TS62769 specifies the technology mapping for the concepts described in the Field Device Integration (FDI) standard. The technology mapping focuses on implementation regarding the components FDI Client and User Interface Plug-in (UIP) using the Runtime .NET. This runtime is specific only to the WORKSTATION platform as defined in FCG TS62769-4.

      This part of IEC 62769 specifies an FDI profile of IEC 62769 for Generic Protocols. That means that all interfaces are defined and a host can add support for more protocols without changing its implementation. Nevertheless, there are some protocol-specific definitions (PSD) that need to be specified per protocol using this profile. Annex C specifies what PSD need to be defined per protocol so that FDI Device Packages, FDI Communication Packages for Gateways and FDI Communication Servers, FDI Communication Server, Gateways and Devices supporting such a protocol can work together in a host not aware about this specific protocol.
