5.1.2.1 CSPP section ToC

The CSP+ for machine consists of four type CSPP sections: FILE section, DEVICE section, COMM_IF section, and BLOCK section. Overview of the CSPP sections is shown in Table 51.

Table 51 – Overview of Sections in CSP+ for Machine

CSPP section name Overview Number of sections
FILE Describes management information for CSP+ file for machine. 1 section
DEVICE Describes information such as machine name, identification information, and machine specifications. 1 section
COMM_IF Describes definition information for the machine information. 1 or more sections
BLOCK Describes definition information for the machine data. 1 or more sections

Figure 51 shows the structure image of the CSP+ for machine.

5.1.2.2 CSPP part ToC

The CSPP sections consist of one or more CSPP parts. Figure 52 shows the structure image in a CSPP section.

Type of CSPP parts included in the CSPP sections varies depending on the CSPP sections. Type of CSPP parts included in the FILE section is shown in Table 52, type of CSPP parts included in the DEVICE section is shown in Table 53, type of CSPP parts included in the COMM_IF section is shown in Table 54, and type of CSPP parts included in the BLOCK section is shown in Table 55.

Table 52 – CSPP Parts Included in FILE Section

CSPP part type Information to be described Number of parts
FILE_INFO - Management information for CSP+ file for machine
(e.g. Date of file created, language information, file version)
1 part

Table 53 – CSPP Parts Included in DEVICE Section

CSPP part type Information to be described Number of parts
DEVICE_INFO - Machine identification information
(e.g. Vendor name, model name)
- Machine’s product information
(e.g. Specifications, image file name)
1 part
DEVICE_IF - Information related to communications with the machine
(e.g. Communications protocol type)
1 or more parts

Table 54 – CSPP Parts Included in COMM_IF Section

CSPP part type Information to be described Number of parts
COMM_IF_INFO - Machine identification information 1 part
COMM_IF_VARIABLE - Machine information for realtime monitor
(e.g. Current value)
0 or more parts
COMM_IF_CONFIGURATION - Machine information for general purpose
(e.g. Power consumption for 30 minutes)
0 or more parts
ENUM - Options for setting range 0 or more parts

Table 55 – CSPP Parts Included in BLOCK Section

CSPP part type Information to be described Number of parts
BLOCK_INFO - Machine data identification 1 part
BLOCK_MEMORY - Variable machine data acquired from the machine
(e.g. Current value, measurement time)
0 or more parts
BLOCK_PARAM - Machine-specific machine data not acquired from the machine
(e.g. Accuracy, collection cycle)
0 or more parts
ENUM - Options for setting range 0 or more parts

There are COMM_IF_VARIABLE part and COMM_IF_CONFIGURATION part as CSPP parts managing the machine information. Machine information for realtime monitor is described in the COMM_IF_VARIABLE part and machine information for general purpose is described in the COMM_IF_CONFIGURATION part. As the information allowed for the COMM_IF_VARIABLE part is limited for realtime monitor, description is easy but the application is limited. On the other hand, there is less restrictions on the description for the COMM_IF_CONFIGURATION part where the machine information for the general purpose applications can be described. For example, a window display layout includes a monitoring window for machine information in the COMM_IF_VARIABLE part and a machine parameter read/write window for machine information in the COMM_IF_CONFIGURATION part.
