Note: There is a newer version of this specification see VEC 2.1.0

A contact point defines the relationship between Terminals, Seals, Plugs, Cavities and Wires. A ContactPoint is expected to have only one electrical potential.

If a contacting of a terminal has more than one potential (e.g. a coax-contact) one contact point for each potential is needed.

Type Role Mult. Mult. Description
WireMounting wireMounting 0..* 1 Specifies the WireMouting defined by ContactPoint. More than one WireMounting is allowed in order to support variance. In concrete configuration the WireMounting with all referenced elements present is used.
CavityMounting cavityMounting 0..* 1 Defines the mounting to a cavity of the terminal associated with the ContactPoint. The cardinality is 0..* in order to allow a variant dependant cavity mounting. In such a scenario a cavity mounting is valid in a configuration if all addressed cavities and therefore the associated connector housing is available.
TerminalRole mountedTerminal 0..1 0..* References the terminal that is used for contacting defined by the ContactPoint.
