10.2 MachineryComponentIdentificationType ObjectType Definition ToC Previous Next

The MachineryComponentIdentificationType provides identification information about a component, like manufacturer or serial number, and allows setting user-specific information like 2:ComponentName and is formally defined in Table 20.

The optional 2:DeviceRevision is defined by the 2:IVendorNameplateType, but not included in the MachineryItemIdentificationType. Therefore, it is added to the MachineryComponentIdentificationType. It provides the overall revision level of the component. Often, it is increased when either the SoftwareRevision and / or the 2:HardwareRevision of the component is increased. As an example, this Property can be used in ERP systems together with the 2:ProductCode Property. Examples are: “PLL01 1.10.0.3” “V05.01.01.15”, “3.1 R1293”, “70.0.1”, “4.60.03”.

It is not recommended to use the optional Properties 2:RevisionCounter and 2:DeviceManual defined by the 2:IVendorNameplateType and inherited by the IMachineVendorNameplateType.

A Machine vendor should not generate a 2:ProductInstanceUri for components of its Machine, but take the one provided by the component manufacturer. If the component manufacturer does not provide such a 2:ProductInstanceUri, the Property shall be omitted. Clients can use the 2:ProductInstanceUri of the Machine in combination with the NodeId of the component to generate a globally unique identification, which is only valid in the context of the Machine. Examples are: http://www.componentvendor.de/A3231E001.

A Machine vendor should not change the InitialOperationDate for components of its Machine, but take the one provided by the component manufacturer.

Machine vendors might use the 2:AssetId to provide their internal machine-readable identification of the component. In that case, the Property might be provided as read-only.

Machine vendors shall not use the 2:ComponentName Property to manage its identification of the component. Instead of, the BrowseName and DisplayName Attributes of the Object representing the component shall be used for that purpose.

The InstanceDeclarations of the MachineryComponentIdentificationType have additional Attribute values defined in Table 24.

SourceBrowsePath Value Description
0:DefaultInstanceBrowseName 2:Identification The default BrowseName for instances of the type.
2:DeviceRevision - A string representation of the overall revision level of the component. Often, it is increased when either the SoftwareRevision and / or the HardwareRevision of the component is increased. As an example, it can be used in ERP systems together with the ProductCode.
