The ScaleSystemType defines the structure of an Object of the ScaleSystemType. Figure 15 shows the hierarchical structure and details of the composition. It is formally defined in Table 16.

An Object of the ScaleSystemType represents a scale system and contains one or more scales. The VisionSystemType defines a general communication interface for a scale system and is the entrypoint for clients. This interface makes it possible to interact with this system independent of the knowledge of the internal structure and the underlying processes of the scale system.

The system is modeled with a finite state machine and contains primary information about the state and the status of the system. It optionally can also contain the objects ProductionPreset and ProductionOutput.
