The use case Device Identification forms the basis for the operation of the Compressed Air System and the operators plant asset management, e.g. Documentation Management, Energy Management and Maintenance Management. For this purpose, the Main Control System shall provide properties for asset identification.

In addition to nameplate information of the CASParts of a Compressed Air System, the operator / integrator requires properties to describe its functional role and installation place.

An operator / integrator should be able to explore the topology of the Compressed Air System. All browsable Components shall be identifiable. This includes non-communicating Components (e.g. Airnet, receiver) as well as assets capable of communication (e.g. compressor).
