The PowerlinkConnectionPointType is an abstract Object Type that defines the POWERLINK Objects, which are common for both POWERLINK Managing Node and POWERLINK Controlled Node.

Figure 16 shows a part of the PowerlinkConnectionPointType. The Object ParameterSet contains the POWERLINK Objects, modelled as defined in 5.2. In addition to these Variables, this specification defines a list of Methods (components of the Object MethodSet).

As defined by the concepts of OPC 10000-100 the Parameters (Variables) of the ParameterSet and Methods of the MethodSet are organised in FunctionalGroups where they are referenced by Organize-References. This concept allows splitting the Parameters into different categories, and at the same time, all Parameters are accessible under ParameterSet.
