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 17.
Table 17 – ElementMonitoringType Definition
|Subtype of the 0:BaseObjectType defined in OPC 10000-5 i.e. inheriting the InstanceDeclarations of that Node.|
The Name property refers to a name of the element.
