IfcSensorType: public Ifc4::IfcDistributionControlElementType¶
The distribution control element type IfcSensorType defines commonly shared information for occurrences of sensors. 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 sensor specification (i.e. the specific product information, that is common to all occurrences of that product type). Sensor types may be exchanged without being already assigned to occurrences. Occurrences of IfcSensorType are represented by instances of IfcSensor.
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_SensorTypeCommon
The following property set definitions are applicable to this entity according to the PredefinedType attribute:
Pset_SensorTypeConductanceSensor (CONDUCTANCESENSOR) Pset_SensorTypeContactSensor (CONTACTSENSOR) Pset_SensorTypeFireSensor (FIRESENSOR) Pset_SensorTypeFlowSensor (FLOWSENSOR) Pset_SensorTypeGasSensor (GASSENSOR) Pset_SensorTypeHeatSensor (HEATSENSOR) Pset_SensorTypeHumiditySensor (HUMIDITYSENSOR) Pset_SensorTypeIonConcentrationSensor (IONCONCENTRATIONSENSOR) Pset_SensorTypeLevelSensor (LEVELSENSOR) Pset_SensorTypeLightSensor (LIGHTSENSOR) Pset_SensorTypeMoistureSensor (MOISTURESENSOR) Pset_SensorTypeMovementSensor (MOVEMENTSENSOR) Pset_SensorTypePHSensor (PHSENSOR) Pset_SensorTypePressureSensor (PRESSURESENSOR) Pset_SensorTypeRadiationSensor (RADIATIONSENSOR) Pset_SensorTypeRadioactivitySensor (RADIOACTIVITYSENSOR) Pset_SensorTypeSmokeSensor (SMOKESENSOR) Pset_SensorTypeSoundSensor (SOUNDSENSOR) Pset_SensorTypeTemperatureSensor (TEMPERATURESENSOR) Pset_SensorTypeWindSensor (WINDSENSOR)
Material Use Definition The material of the IfcSensorType 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 IfcSensorType 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 IfcSensor for standard port definitions.
Identifies the predefined types of sensor from which the type required may be set.
