class Ifc4x3_rc1::IfcCommunicationsApplianceType : public Ifc4x3_rc1::IfcFlowTerminalType

The flow terminal type IfcCommunicationsApplianceType defines commonly shared information for occurrences of communications appliances. 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 communications appliance specification (i.e. the specific product information, that is common to all occurrences of that product type). Communications Appliance types may be exchanged without being already assigned to occurrences. Occurrences of IfcCommunicationsApplianceType are represented by instances of IfcCommunicationsAppliance.

HISTORY: New entity in IFC2x4

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 IfcFlowTerminalType and ancestors for inherited property set definitions. The following property set definitions are applicable to this entity: Pset_CommunicationsApplianceTypeCommon Pset_ElectricalDeviceCommon

Material Use Definition The material of the IfcCommunicationsApplianceType 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.

Composition Use Definition The IfcCommunicationsApplianceType may be aggregated into components using IfcRelAggregates where RelatingObject refers to the enclosing IfcCommunicationsApplianceType and RelatedObjects contains one or more components. Components are reflected at occurrences of this type using the IfcRelDefinesByObject relationship. Aggregation use is defined for the following predefined types:

COMPUTER: May contain IfcAudioVisualAppliance components. Computers may be aggregated into audio-visual components such as displays, cameras, speakers, or microphones.

Port Use Definition The distribution ports relating to the IfcCommunicationsApplianceType 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 IfcCommunicationsAppliance for standard port definitions.
