Host Application Profile
PROFINET , PROFIBUS , PROFIBUS PA , PROFIsafe , PROFIdrive/Drives , PROFIenergy
This specification defines for each application profile the functional requirements for the host and the engineering system.
Application profiles usually define the functionality from the point of view of field devices. This specification is closing the gap, defining the necessary functions of the counterpart of the field device – the host with its related engineering system. Typically, the host is a PLC or a DCS controller.
This specification does not describe any new feature. It rather provides an overview of which PROFIBUS/PROFINET functionality on the host side is required for which application profile.
V1.3 adds information concerning the ENCODER profile.
