The LaboratoryScaleType defines the structure of an Object of the LaboratoryScaleType. Figure 57shows the hierarchical structure and details of the composition. It is formally defined in Table 111.

An Object of the LaboratoryScaleType represents a laboratory scale. It defines additional methods and properties required for managing the laboratory scale.

CalibrationNeededdefines if a calibration procedure is needed and if the current process should be paused.

CalibrationRunningdefines if a calibration procedure is running (e.g. started via method StartCalibration).

DraftShieldLeftCloseddefines if the left draft shield is closed.

DraftShieldRightClosed defines if the right draft shield is closed.

DarftShieldTopClosed defines if the top draft shield is closed.

LevelingRunningdefines if a leveling process is running (e.g. started via the method StartLeveling).

IonisatorRunning defines if an ionization procedure is running (e.g. started via the method StartIonizer).
