Question: link between #Sensor and #Property


I am trying to use the SSN ontology to describe an example from our SmartProducts project and I have a question.

In one of the use cases we have an accelerometer sensor ( As I understand, similarly to the VaisalaWM30 example, the class of sensors of the same model has to be described as a subclass of #SensingDevice, and their common attributes must be defined as property restrictions. Now, I want to define a class of accelerometer sensors. If we have #Acceleration as an instance of #Property, is there a way to define #Accelerometer as a #SensingDevice for which there is a link to #Acceleration? On,_etc I can see there is a property #measures connecting #Sensor and #Property, but it is not in the SensorBasis.owl. Has this property been removed for some reason, or I am not using the correct version of SensorBasis.owl (I took the June version from )?
