class Ifc2x3::IfcFlowInstrumentType : public Ifc2x3::IfcDistributionControlElementType

The distribution control element type IfcFlowInstrumentType defines commonly shared information for occurrences of flow instruments. The set of shared information may include:

common properties with shared property sets common representations of shape common materials common composition of elements common ports applicable assignment of process types

It is used to define a flow instrument specification (i.e. the specific product information, that is common to all occurrences of that product type). Flow Instrument types may be exchanged without being already assigned to occurrences. Occurrences of IfcFlowInstrumentType are represented by instances of IfcFlowInstrument.

HISTORY: New entity in IFC2x2

Property Set Use Definition The property sets relating to this entity are defined by IfcPropertySet and attached by the HasPropertySets attribute. Refer to the documentation at the supertype IfcDistributionControlElementType and ancestors for inherited property set definitions. The following property set definitions are applicable to this entity: Pset_FlowInstrumentTypeCommon

The following property set definitions are applicable to this entity according to the PredefinedType attribute:

Pset_FlowInstrumentTypePressureGauge (PRESSUREGAUGE) Pset_FlowInstrumentTypeThermometer (THERMOMETER)

Material Use Definition The material of the IfcFlowInstrumentType is defined by IfcMaterialConstituentSet or as a fallback by IfcMaterial, and attached by the RelatingMaterial attribute on the IfcRelAssociatesMaterial relationship. It is accessible by the HasAssociations inverse attribute. The following keywords for IfcMaterialConstituentSet.MaterialConstituents[n].Name shall be used:

‘Casing’: Material from which the casing is constructed.

Port Use Definition The distribution ports relating to the IfcFlowInstrumentType type are defined by IfcDistributionPort and attached by the IfcRelConnectsPortToElement relationship. Ports are reflected at occurrences of this type using the IfcRelDefinesByObject relationship. Refer to the documentation at IfcFlowInstrument for standard port definitions.
