Vol. 2: EDDL Specification; Specification for PROFIBUS Device Description and Device Integration



Specification for PROFIBUS Device Description and Device Integration, Volume 2: EDDL Specification

The Electronic Device Description Language has been designed
to implement a vendor independent data set called EDD describing
device configuration, maintenance and functionality. The EDDL
defines the syntax ( form) and the semantics (meaning) of the
data and the behavior of a PROFIBUS device or component and the
structure of the corresponding user interface. In its most basic
form, the EDD source is human readable text written by device
The EDDL specification provides a detailed description of the
Electronic Device Description Language required for the development
of an Electronic Device Description source file. The architecture
of the EDD application and its usage during design and operational
phases of a device are defined.
