Description:
Profile guidelines part 2 is dealing with data type definitions of profile variables and parameters, programming languages of field devices and controllers as well as platform aspects for field devices.

Profile variables and parameters are used in various scenarios of a device's life cycle be it operation, configuration, commissioning, parameterization, diagnosis, repair, firmware update, asset management, audit trailing, and alike. Well-defined uniform variables and parameters with a specific choice of data types enable the manufacturers to implement software along the data flow from the field device to the various users quick and straight.
