IEC 62657-1:2017 provides the wireless communication requirements dictated by the applications of wireless communication systems in industrial automation, and requirements of related context. The requirements are specified in a way that is independent of the wireless technology employed. The requirements are described in detail and in such a way as to be understood by a large audience, including readers who are not familiar with the industry applications.
This first edition cancels and replaces the first edition of IEC TS 62657-1 published in 2014. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to IEC TS 62657-1:2014:
