Note: There is a newer version of this specification see VEC 2.1.0

Specification for cavity seals that apply to more than one cavity. A CavitySeal is a water tight non-electrical object to fill a populated Cavity. MultiCavitySeals are formed to fit into one connector / slot and to seal more than one cavity at once.

There are existing two types of MultiCavitySeals:

  1. In first type the MultiCavitySeal has an opening for all cavities of the connector. Each opening can be filled either with a wire (without an individual seal) or with a CavityPlug (e.g. a synthetic pin) or a MultiCavityPlug.
  2. In the second type, the MultiCavitySeal has a specific configuration of openings for some cavities of the connector. These MultiCavitySeals are sealing all cavities with an opening and a wire in it and all cavities where no opening in the MultiCavitySeal exists. For each opening that has no wire it an additional CavityPlug is needed. 

The cavities that are left open by a MultiCavitySeal are defined with a SealedCavitiesAssignment.
