7.2.2.5.2 Type values

Type Description
CO2SENSOR

A device that senses or detects carbon dioxide.

CONDUCTANCESENSOR

A device that senses or detects electrical conductance.

CONTACTSENSOR

A device that senses or detects contact, such as for detecting if a door is closed.

COSENSOR

A device that senses or detects carbon monoxide.

EARTHQUAKESENSOR

A device that senses or detects the seismic wave and measures the seismic intensity in case of earthquake.

FIRESENSOR

A device that senses or detects fire

FLOWSENSOR

A device that senses or detects flow in a fluid.

FOREIGNOBJECTDETECTIONSENSOR

A device that senses or detects foreign objects that shock or break the power network. It may alarm when such accidents happen.

HUMIDITYSENSOR

A device that senses or detects humidity.

IDENTIFIERSENSOR

A device that reads a tag, such as for gaining access to a door or elevator

IONCONCENTRATIONSENSOR

A device that senses or detects ion concentration, such as for water hardness.

LEVELSENSOR

A device that senses or detects fill level, such as for a tank.

LIGHTSENSOR

A device that senses or detects light.

MOISTURESENSOR

A device that senses or detects moisture.

MOVEMENTSENSOR

A device that senses or detects movement.

OBSTACLESENSOR

PRESSURESENSOR

A device that senses or detects pressure.

RADIATIONSENSOR

A device that senses or detects pressure.

RADIOACTIVITYSENSOR

A device that senses or detects atomic decay.

RAINSENSOR

A device that senses or collects rainfall related information.

SMOKESENSOR

A device that senses or detects smoke.

SNOWDEPTHSENSOR

A device that senses or measures the depth of snowfall.

SOUNDSENSOR

A device that senses or detects sound.

TEMPERATURESENSOR

A device that senses or detects temperature.

TRAINSENSOR

A device, usually attached to the rear end of the last vehicle of a train, acting on a fixed equipment to give an indication that the train is complete.

TURNOUTCLOSURESENSOR

A device that senses or detects the position of a blade of a turnout.

WHEELSENSOR

A device that senses or detects the passage of a wheel.

WINDSENSOR

A device that senses or detects airflow speed and direction.

USERDEFINED

User-defined type.

NOTDEFINED

Undefined type.
