Fieldbus technology has been widely used in industrial control system. The coexistence of different kinds of fieldbus standards brings the problem of fieldbus interoperability. This paper proposes a solution named extensible device description based on XML for fieldbus interoperability. With XML we can define standardized fieldbus device description language and uniform interface between configurator and device description source files. The DTD for XML-based fieldbus device description files for fieldbus control system is given in this paper. The interfaces for parsing device description source files are also defined.
