Static properties enumerated by a #digitaltwin model represents data that typically doesn’t change.
Unlike telemetry properties that map 1:1 with a sensor or other data point, static properties contain values that typically don’t change.
Using a car as an example, static properties of a digital twin model could be things like the length of the car, the number of cylinders and displacement of the engine as well as the volume of room in the trunk.
Static properties are necessary to have a more complete view of the physical twin to be used as reference data for analytics. Digital twin instances inherit these unchanging static properties from their corresponding digital twin model.
