Note: There is a newer version of this specification see VEC 2.1.0

Allows the definition of valid current ranges for a terminal. A current range is always defined for a coreCrossSectionArea and a nominal voltage. Attributes of the type CurrentRangeInformation normally have the multiplicity [0..*]. This means that such an attribute can have CurrentRangeInformation entries for different coreCrossSectionAreas and nominalVoltages. It must not have multiple entries for the same coreCrossSectionAreas and nominalVoltages.

Name Type Mult. Description Owning Classifier
currentRange ValueRange 1

Specifies the valid current range for the terminal. It is defined as a value range, because there are terminals where minimum current is needed to avoid corrosion.

nominalVoltage NumericalValue 1

Specifies the nominalVoltage for which the CurrentRangeInformation is valid.

coreCrossSectionArea NumericalValue 1

Specifies the coreCrossSectionArea for which the CurrentRangeInformation is valid. The coreCrossSectionArea is a relevant information, because the thermal absorption of the core depends on the cross-section area and thus is an influence factor for the valid current range.
