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.

screwable Boolean 0..1

Defines if the PotentialDistributor can be screwed by itself to be fixed. This fixation is a non-electrical connection. If the PotentialDistributor can be fixated electrical (like a ring terminal) it shall have one PinComponent with a RingTerminalSpecification.

boltDiameter NumericalValue 0..1

Specifies the diameter of the bolt for which the potential distributor is designed for.

boltNominalSize TerminalBoltNominalSize 0..1

Defines the size (diameter) of the bolt for which the potential distributor is designed for in a nominal way (e.g. "M8").

boltType TerminalBoltType 0..1

Specifies the type of the bolt to which the potential distributor is compatible.
