7.4 AirnetType ObjectType Definition ToC Previous Next

The AirnetType is the representation of an Airnet and provides both Objects for Quantities and FunctionalGroups. It is illustrated in Figure 19 and formally defined in Table 17.

The optional Object Ambient provides Quantities for the ambient air conditions at an Airnet. Of the optional Variables of the FluidQuantitiesType only AbsolutePressure, DewPoint, RelativeHumidity, and Temperature are available.

The optional Folder Components provides Folders for organizing Components connected to the Airnet. Usually, the Components are grouped by their DeviceClass and shall be referenced by using the Organizes ReferenceType. The concrete instance of a Component shall be instantiated in the Components Folder of the CASType instance.

Figure 20 shows an example on how to instantiate the FunctionalGroup Components for an Airnet in the AddressSpace of an OPC UA Server.

The optional FunctionalGroup Configuration provides Variables for configuring the behavior of an Airnet.

The optional Object ElectricalCircuit provides Quantities for the electrical ports of an Airnet.

The mandatory FunctionalGroup Identification provides Properties to identify an Airnet.

The optional FunctionalGroup Operational provides Variables for process data used during normal operation of an Airnet, such as measurements, efficiencies, and states.

The optional Object ProcessFluidCircuit provides static design information about the process fluid as well as Quantities for the process fluids inlets, outlets, and delta of an Airnet.

The InstanceDeclarations of the AirnetType have additional Attributes defined in Table 18.
