Industrial networks - Wireless communication network and communication profiles - WirelessHART™

IEC 62591:2016 specifies a wireless communication network in addition to the Type 20 in IEC 61158-3-20, IEC 61158-4-20, IEC 61158-5-20, IEC 61158-6-20 and a Communication Profile CP 9/2 in addition to IEC 61784-1, CPF 9. It specifies the following:
 - Physical layer service definition and protocol specification,
 - Data-link layer service and protocol,
 - Application layer service and protocol,
 - Network management,
 - Security,
 - Communication profile,
 - Wireless procedures and Gateway. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2010. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
 - enhancements to the performance statistics using key performance indicators (KPI);
 - "Stale Data" detection was added (see services Read stale data setpoints, Write stale data timer and Write stale data count setpoint).;
 - gateway commands were added;
 - a Quarantined State was added;
 - CCA Modes were extended to be more in-line with IEEE 802.15.4;
 - clarifications on whitelist and blacklist management were added;
 - clarifications on join (e.g. only require a single neighbor) were added;
 - clarifications on use of join links, table management, and defaults were added;
 - corrections and updates were made. The reader's attention is drawn to the fact that Annex M lists all of the "in-some-country" clauses on differing practices of a less permanent nature relating to the subject of this standard.
