Communication Function Blocks for PROFIBUS and PROFINET



This specification contains the definitions of a set of Communication Function Blocks (Comm FB) for the PROFIBUS DP communication using the IEC 61131-3 programming language standard and the standard PROFIBUS DP services. The second part of this specification presents informative guidelines for the application of Communication Function blocks.

The first published version V 1.20 July 2001 of this specification defined a set of Communication Function Blocks for PROFIBUS DP. This 2nd version 2.0 specifies a set of function blocks which is applicable for PROFIBUS DP and PROFINET IO and which are compatible to the first version to a large extent.
