Name Type Mult. Description Owning Classifier
identification String 1

Specifies a unique identification of the specification. The identification is guaranteed to be unique within the document containing the specification. Over all VEC-documents a Specification-instance can be trusted to be identical if the DocumentVersion-instance is the same (see DocumentVersion) and the identification of the Specification is the same.

description AbstractLocalizedString 0..*

Specifies additional, human readable information about the specification.

specialPartType String 0..1

The specialPartType allows the specification of subclassifications for a PartOrUsageRelatedSpecification (e.g. different types of connector housings).

cavityDiameter ValueRange 0..1

Specifies a range of valid cavity diameters to which the cavity seal fits.

hardness NumericalValue 0..1

Specifies the hardness of the cavity seal.

sealingClass SealingClass 0..*

Specifies the sealing class of the cavity seal.

geometry SealingGeometry 0..1

Defines the geometry of the cavity sealing.


This attribute is defined as an OpenEnumeration.

compatibleTerminalType TerminalType 0..*

Defines a list of terminal types that are compatible to this CavitySealSpecification. This defines as well the compatible cavities, since a plug is normally used when no terminals are present.

wireElementOutsideDiameter ValueRange 0..1

Specifies a range of valid wire diameters to which the cavity accessory fits.

wireReceptionType WireReceptionType 0..1

Specifies the wireReceptionType to which the cavity accessory fits. This should be an enumeration of values defined in a conformance class.
