class Ifc2x3::IfcFlowMeterType : public Ifc2x3::IfcFlowControllerType

The flow controller type IfcFlowMeterType defines commonly shared information for occurrences of flow meters. 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 meter specification (i.e. the specific product information, that is common to all occurrences of that product type). Flow Meter types may be exchanged without being already assigned to occurrences. Occurrences of IfcFlowMeterType are represented by instances of IfcFlowMeter.

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 IfcFlowControllerType and ancestors for inherited property set definitions. The following property set definitions are applicable to this entity: Pset_FlowMeterTypeCommon

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

Pset_FlowMeterTypeEnergyMeter (ENERGYMETER) Pset_FlowMeterTypeGasMeter (GASMETER) Pset_FlowMeterTypeOilMeter (OILMETER) Pset_FlowMeterTypeWaterMeter (WATERMETER)

Material Use Definition The material of the IfcFlowMeterType 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 IfcFlowMeterType 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 IfcFlowMeter for standard port definitions.
