summary agreement to not use deprecated IfcElectricHeaterType for electrical space heaters.

 

Description

 

The use of the deprecated IfcElectricHeaterType is not allowed (as it will not be supported in the next IFC4 release).

  • electric space heaters shall be represented by IfcFlowTerminal (for individual occurrences) and IfcSpaceHeaterType (for common type information).

 

Addition [2013-04-10]

The following applies to all space heater (independent of source of energy supply):

  • the individual occurrence is of type: IfcFlowTerminal
  • the common type information is of type: IfcSpaceHeaterType

NOTE this supersedes the documentation in IFC2x3, where electric space heaters occurrences
are defined as IfcFlowTerminal and non-electrical as IfcEnergyConversionDevice and it is in line
with the improved definition in IFC4.
