class Ifc4x1::IfcFlowControllerType : public Ifc4x1::IfcDistributionFlowElementType

The element type IfcFlowControllerType defines a list of commonly shared property set definitions of a flow controller and an optional set of product representations. It is used to define a flow controller specification (i.e. the specific product information, that is common to all occurrences of that product type).

NOTE: The product representations are defined as representation maps (at the level of the supertype IfcTypeProduct, which get assigned by an element occurrence instance through the IfcShapeRepresentation.Item[1] being an IfcMappedItem.

A flow controller type is used to define the common properties of a flow controller that may be applied to many occurrences of that type. A flow controller is a device that regulates flow within a distribution system, such as a valve in a piping

system, modulating damper in an air distribution system, or electrical switch in an electrical distribution

system. Flow controller types (or the instantiable subtypes) may be exchanged without being already assigned to occurrences.

The occurrences of the IfcFlowControllerType are represented by instances of IfcFlowController or its subtypes.
