Note: There is a newer version of this specification see VEC 2.1.0

A Specification to define requirements for the handling of wire / wire element tuples (pairs, triple,...) with the focus on twisting. More precisely, the allowed untwisting at the wire ends and required measures against it.

This definition is made independent from the WireGroup, as the might be defined for the part master data (the wire on the roller). The specifications for untwisting are based on the concrete usage.

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.

fixationRequired Boolean 0..1 Specifies if an implementation of this specification in a concrete harness required to define a fixation against untwisting of the wire ends. WireTupleSpecification
fixationOffset NumericalValue 0..1 The offset from the wire end, at which the fixation has to be placed. WireTupleSpecification
maximumUntwistSingleSided NumericalValue 0..1 Specifies the maximum untwist for one side. WireTupleSpecification
maximumUntwistDualSided NumericalValue 0..1 Specifies the maximum untwist for both sides together (A+B). WireTupleSpecification
