SpaceHeater, SwitchingDevice, Tank, Transformer, TransportElement, TubeBundle, UnitaryControlElement, Valve, VibrationIsolator data models in S4BLDG subject

The new subject datamodel.S4BLDG is mapping the data models from SAREF for buildings 1.1.2.

Thanks to the contributors Grzegorz Wiszniewski and Jakob Bjørnskov t the project Twin4Build – A holistic Digital Twin platform for decision-making support over the whole building life cycle.

  • SpaceHeater. Space heaters utilize a combination of radiation and/or natural convection using a heating source such as electricity, steam or hot water to heat a limited space or area. Examples of space heaters include radiators, convectors, baseboard and finned-tube heaters. UnitaryEquipment should be used for packaged units supporting a combination of heating, cooling, and/or dehumidification; Coil should be used for coil-based floor heating.

  • SwitchingDevice. A switch is used in a cable distribution system (electrical circuit) to control or modulate the flow of electricity. Switches include those used for electrical power, communications, audio-visual, or other distribution system types as determined by the available ports.

  • Tank. A tank is a vessel or container in which a fluid or gas is stored for later use.

  • Transformer. A transformer is an inductive stationary device that transfers electrical energy from one circuit to another. Transformer is used to transform electric power; conversion of electric signals for other purposes is handled at other entities: Controller converts arbitrary signals, AudioVisualAppliance converts signals for audio or video streams, and CommunicationsAppliance converts signals for data or other communications usage.

  • TransportElement. A transport element is a generalization of all transport related objects that move people, animals or goods within a building or building complex. The TransportElement defines the occurrence of a transport element.

  • TubeBundle. A tube bundle is a device consisting of tubes and bundles of tubes used for heat transfer and contained typically within other energy conversion devices, such as a chiller or coil.

  • UnitaryControlElement. A unitary control element combines a number of control components into a single product, such as a thermostat or humidistat. A unitary control element provides a housing for an aggregation of control or electrical distribution elements that, in combination, perform a singular (unitary) purpose. Each item in the aggregation may have its own geometric representation and location.

  • Valve. A valve is used in a building services piping distribution system to control or modulate the flow of the fluid.

  • VibrationIsolator. A vibration isolator is a device used to minimize the effects of vibration transmissibility in a building.
