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).

voltageRange ValueRange 0..1

Specifies the allowed voltage range for the connector housing.

sealingType TerminalSealingType 0..1

Defines the SealingType of the Terminal. This type always refers to the sealing of the terminal itself. However, even a terminal which is not sealable can be used in sealed locations with additional measures (e.g. on the slot).

connectionALength NumericalValue 0..1

Specifies the length of the terminal between the contact area (terminal reception) and the crimp are (wire reception, see diagram "Terminal Dimensions").

overallLength NumericalValue 0..1

Specifies the overall length the terminal (see diagram "Terminal Dimensions").
