Parent Topic: Device Type Definitions

Module type definitions describe the hardware modules, including the controller and data acquisition modules, that the chassis for a particular device type can contain. Whereas a hardware definition defines which modules are supported, a module type definition defines properties of a specific supported module.

Note  This definition is one part within the device type definition structure. In other words, when you export and import a device type definition, this definition is included.

The type of a hardware module affects the contents of its definition:

  • Controllers—The definition contains only the Name of the module, which matches the socket definition Name defined in the hardware definition.
  • Data acquisition modules—The definition specifies how many and what type of channels the InsightCM web application supports for modules of this type.

Module type definitions in JSON contain the following name-value pairs:
