Connection

A Connection is a mechanism to specify the electrical connectivity between two or more contact points. A connection describes the connectivity of a Wire_occurrence or a Core_occurrence. It shall not be confused with the connections defined in the electrical design (schematic or wiring).

Attributes

Name Type Mult. Description Owning Classifier
Id String 0..1

The id specifies the identifier of the Connectivity. The values are company specific. They can depend also on wire parameters. Example: electrical potential, start->destination

Connection
Description String 0..1

The description specifies additional information about the object.

Connection
Localized_description Localized_string 0..*

The description specifies additional information about the object. The Localized_description provides the possibility to define descriptions for different language codes.

Connection
Signal_name String 0..1

The signal_name specifies logical information on a Connection. Example: packet on a bus, analogue voltage(high/low, waved) on a wire.

Connection
Signal_type String 0..1

Defines the type of a signal like (BUS, ENERGY, GROUND, …). Special values have to be negotiated between exchange partners.

Connection
Nominal_voltage String 0..1

Defines the nominal voltage of a signal like (12V, 24V, 48V, HV, …). Special values have to be negotiated between exchange partners.
