Abstract

This document describes the application programming interface (API) used by the Factory Equipment Network Testing (FENT) Framework to communicate between the main Universal Client Application (UCA) and the Personality Module (PM). This API abstracts a small set of messages that are common to many different types of industrial devices, allowing application and code modularity. For more information about how the UCA-API fits into the overall FENT Framework architecture, see [1].
