Note: There is a newer version of this specification see VEC 2.1.0

Defines the type (system) of a terminal. The type is specified by a combination of a name for the system and an optional nominalSize.

In some processes the terminal type is referred as cavity system, because the system of cavities, terminals, seals, plugs and other cavity accessories must match / be compatible.

However, since a terminal has only one since type and a cavity can be compatible to more than one it is named TerminalType in the VEC.
