Note: There is a newer version of this specification see VEC 2.0.2

Base-class for the specification of electrological components, which are connected to the harness. Usually electrological components are not part of the harness e.g. a fuse, a switch or a control device. All EEComponents can have one or more HousingComponents which are possible interfaces for the connection to a harness.

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.

specialPartType String 0..1

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

powerConsumption PowerConsumption 0..*

Specifies the PowerConsumptions of this EEComponentSpecification. This refers to the internal power consumption of this E/E-component, not the power-consumption that might occur indirectly over other E/E-components that are supplied through this component.
