device_typeWhat define is used to qualify this piece of hardware? Important for upgraded versions of the same hardware.
enabledIf the hardware is turned off set this to 0.
expansion_hwHardware that fits into expansion bays.
malfunction_probabilityChance of malfunction when the component is damaged
power_usageIf the hardware uses extra power, change this.
removableWhether the hardware is removable or not.
