The FeederModuleType defines the structure of an Object of the FeederModuleType. Figure 13 shows the hierarchical structure and details of the composition. It is formally defined in Table 12.
An Object of the FeederModuleType represents a feeder system. A feeder system is a subdevice of an automatic scale for conveying the product (e.g. a belt or a screw conveyor) to or from the weighingBridge. A feeder must be part of another device (e.g. an Object of the ScaleDeviceType).
The Type defines a general communication interface for a feeder system. It contains only variables and methods.
