Note: There is a newer version of this specification see VEC 2.1.0

An AbstractSlot is a geometrical place in a connector housing, which can contain / group cavities. This can be either direct, if it is Slot and indirect if it is a ModularSlot.

If it is a Slot, than it is an inseparable part of the connector housing, which means it is created during the manufacturing process of the connector housing.

If it is a ModularSlot it is a place where one or more other connector housing can be place during the assembly.
