optional, multiple


id=unique identifier for this mask used


Inside <mask> information about a mask used is put into brackets. Several <mask> elements can be given (for the sake of readability one after the other).

In case a <manufacturer>'s data are defined before in the UDDF file it is possible to set a cross-reference via <link/> to these data inside every section of a piece of equipment. Then the <manufacturer>'s data need to be given only once (globally) but can be used as often as necessary.

Parent Elements


Child Elements

<aliasname>, <link/> (for cross-referencing <manufacturer> data – if defined before), <manufacturer>, <model>, <name>, <nextservicedate>, <notes>, <purchase>, <serialnumber>, <serviceinterval>
