6.1.5 Mapping for DeviceType (Types namespace) ToC Previous Next

The Type PowerlinkDeviceType is a subtype of DeviceType defined in OPC 10000-100, which mandates a list of Properties for the Device.

Table 16 defines the values for these Properties based on the POWERLINK Objects of the implemented POWERLINK interface. If a PowerlinkDeviceType implements more than one POWERLINK interface, the selection of the interface as source for these objects is device specific.

Table 16 – DeviceType Mapping

DeviceType / OPC 10000-100 POWERLINK  
BrowseName DataType Description
1:SerialNumber String Value of the POWERLINK Object SerialNo_U32 (Index 1018h, Sub-Index 4), converted to a string as decimal number.
If the optional POWERLINK Object is not provided by the device, SerialNumber shall be set to an empty string.
1:RevisionCounter Int32 Always set to -1
1:Manufacturer LocalizedText This variable shall be set to the manufacturer name if known by the OPC UA server. If the server does not know the name the variable shall be set to the value of the POWERLINK Object VendorId_U32 (Index 1018h, Sub-Index 1), converted to a string as decimal number.
1:Model LocalizedText Value of the POWERLINK Object NMT_ManufactDevName_VS (Index 1008h)
If the optional POWERLINK Object is not provided by the device, Model shall be set to an empty text field.
1:DeviceManual String Pathname in the file system or URL (Web Address) specifying the address of the user manual for the Device.
1:DeviceRevision String Value of the POWERLINK Object RevisionNo_U32 (Index 1018h, Sub-Index 3), converted to a string with the format “major.minor”, where “major” is the decimal number of the higher 16 bit and “minor” is the decimal number of the lower 16 bit (as defined in EPSG DS 301)

Example:
POWERLINK RevisionNo_U32 = 0x00020064
DeviceRevision = “2.100”

If the optional POWERLINK Object t is not provided by the device, SoftwareRevision shall be set to an empty string.
1:SoftwareRevision String Value of the POWERLINK Object NMT_ManufactSwVers_VS (Index 100Ah).
If the optional POWERLINK Object is not provided by the device, SoftwareRevision shall be set to an empty string.
1:HardwareRevision String Value of the POWERLINK Object NMT_ManufactHwVers_VS (Index 1009h)
If the optional POWERLINK Object is not provided by the device, SoftwareRevision shall be set to an empty string.
1:DeviceClass String Value of the POWERLINK Object NMT_DeviceType_U32 (Index 1000h), converted to a string as decimal number.
