28 Configuration Parameters ToC Previous Next

Configuration parameters can be used for configuration of product variants (e.g. same type of foil with different thicknesses or widths). With this it is not necessary to create a separate production dataset for each different product variant and the central computer/MES can set selected parameters directly.

Which parameters are offered is manufacturer dependent and stored in an array of ConfigurationParameterType (the location of the instance is defined in the specific companion specifications).

Table 143 – ConfigurationParameterType Definition

Name Type Description
ConfigurationParameterType structure Subtype of 0:Structure as defined in OPC UA 10000-3
   Id 0:UInt32 Unique identifier
   Description 0:LocalizedText Description of the parameter
   DefaultValue 0:BaseDataType Default value of the parameter
   Unit 0:EUInformation Engineering unit of the parameter. If the Type of Defaultvalue is not a Number, then the Unit shall be empty

Within the ContinuousJobInformationType the ParameterSetting Property sets the values for selected parameters. If a parameter is not included in the ParameterSetting Property, the default value defined in the instance of the ConfigurationParameterType is applied.

Table 144 – ParameterSettingType Definition

Name Type Description
ParameterSettingType structure Subtype of 0:Structure as defined in OPC UA 10000-3
   Id 0:UInt32 Unique identifier of the parameter as defined in the instance of the ConfigurationParametersType
   Value 0:BaseDataType Set value of the parameter

Specific companion specifications can provide lists of standardized parameters for the specific applications.
