Predefined types

The basic type on which all other types are based is BasicAsset.

You can use other pre-defined templates to create your own type. These types are called core types. The core type operates as a parent. Out of a core type you can create new types that take into account the parent-child relation. Most of the core types contain a plugin in to enable data connection to MindSphere.

The following table describes the main categories of the core types:

Type

Application

BasicAgent

Template for creating agent-based assets. You can use this template to connect MindConnect Elements.

BasicApplication

Template for creating application-based assets. You can use this template to connect other applications.

BasicDevice

Template for creating device-based assets.

BasicHierarchy

Template for creating hierarchy-based assets.

Within the pre-defined templates, you can create new types and use templates such as MindConnect Nano.

You can find more information on pre-defined types in the developer documentation.

Create an asset based on core types

When creating a new asset in the "Asset" tab, you can select all created types. You can find more information in chapter Create an asset.
