Mapping of Fieldbus Protocols to Standardised Field Level Objects

  • Peter Fischer
Conference paper


The specification of the Field Level Object standard is finished and the corresponding European pre-standard will be published at the end of 1999. In this paper the mapping of a fieldbus communication system to the objects, functions and services defined in the pre-standard is presented. As an example the EIB system is used for which a detailed mapping guide as annex for a draft of an European pre-standard exists. The mapping is shown in detail for the analogue object explaining some of the mapping problems.
