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. For 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.

angle NumericalValue 0..2

Specifies the angle against two planes of the connector housing a terminal used in this cavity can be buckled.

cavityDesign String 0..1

Deprecated (since Version 1.1.4): This attribute has been marked as deprecated, as it has been replaced by the more meaningful mechanism with TerminalTypes.

geometry CavityGeometry 0..1

Defines the geometry of a cavity in the sealing area (crimp end).

cavityDimension Size 0..1

Specifies the dimension of the cavity in the sealing area of the cavity (crimp end), not in the contacting area (box end).

minWireElementOutsideDiameter NumericalValue 0..1

Specifies the minimum diameter a wire is allowed to have to fit into the cavity. This definition is necessary, since wires that are too small might cause movements and in acceptable torsion forces on terminals.

maxWireElementOutsideDiameter NumericalValue 0..1

Specifies the maximum diameter a wire is allowed to have to fit into the cavity.

primaryLockingType PrimaryLockingType 0..1

Specifies if the cavity has a primary locking and of what type it is.

sealable Boolean 0..1

Specifies if the cavity is sealable.

compatibleTerminalType TerminalType 0..*

Defines a list of terminal types that are compatible to this CavitySpecification.
