The ElementMonitoringType is intended to be a supertype for all monitoring information that is specific to a particular element within the machine tool. An element doesn’t have to be a physical component. Examples for such elements are NC channels or spindles. It is an abstract type, meaning it is not instantiated, only the subtypes are.

The ElementMonitoringType is formally defined in Table 16.
