Since Release 13.0, the ECLASS Standard includes enhancements for the Asset Administration Shell (AAS). In terms of the data model, a new Application Class of type "Asset" has been introduced in addition to BASIC and ADVANCED.
In Release 13.0, Asset Application Classes were created for all classes on the fourth level in the segments 17, 18, 19, 21, 23, 27, 28, 32, 33, 36, 49, 50 and 51. In addition, the so-called "submodel templates" for the AAS were created as aspects at the content level and were added to the Asset AC in these classes. In addition to the BASIC and ADVANCED representation, ECLASS e.V. publishes a derivation of the type "Asset". This contains all Asset Application Classes including the submodel template aspects.
New since ECLASS 14.0
In Release 14.0, Asset ACs were added to all classes on the fourth level if none were already available. The newly added Asset ACs have no content and are named "Asset (empty)". This means that ECLASS provides Asset ACs in all classes for the first time.
Furthermore, there are four new aspects for the Asset AC:
- "Technical data"
- "Carbon Footprint"
- "Service Request Notification"
- "Contact information"
