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.

coreCrossSectionArea ValueRange 0..1

Specifies a value range for cross-section areas of cores that are compatible with the wire reception.

For wire receptions where a single core is attached to, this value defines the ValueRange of the crossSectionArea of the core. For wire receptions where more than one core is attached to (e.g. ring terminals, splices), this attribute defines the valid value range for the sum of the cross-section areas of all attached cores.

insulationDisplacementLength NumericalValue 0..1

Specifies the length of the insulation which must be stripped off to fit to this wire reception.

multiContact Boolean 0..1

Specifies if it is possible to contact more than one core at the wire reception. If this attribute is set to true, the wire reception is allowed for more than one wire, but one wire is possible as well. If set to false, only one wire is allowed.

wireReceptionType WireReceptionType 0..1

Specifies the type of the wire reception. The wireReceptionType defines how the wire is joined with the wire reception.

This attribute is defined in an OpenEnumeration.

wireElementOutsideDiameter ValueRange 0..1

Specifies a value range for valid diameters a WireElement must have to fit to the wire reception.

platingMaterial Material 0..*

Specifies the plating material of the wire reception.

sealable Boolean 0..1

Specifies if the wire reception can be sealed. (see KBLFRM-311)
