IEC61499 Standard in automation

The IEC61499 architecture represents a component solution for distributed industrial automation systems aiming at portability, reusability interoperability, reconfiguration of distributed applications. The IEC 61499 Standard provides a generic model for distributed systems. This model includes processes and communication networks as an environment for embedded devices, resources and applications. Applications are built by networks of Function Blocks.
