In the field of electrical engineering not only the outer shape of a component is decisive: In fact, engineers need further information, especially connection information, when looking for an appropriate part. In order for electrical components to be properly exported in respective ECAD target systems, they have to be classified accordingly.

Some classes refer to the part as a whole, others to specific areas such as electrical connections or mounting points, for example. In the classification process this is mirrored by selecting Filters like Classes or Connection points:

Edit project -> tabbed page General -> Classification (CNS)

Edit project -> tabbed page General -> Classification (CNS)

  • Filter Classes

    Part classifications such as article number, descriptions and IEC code 81346_2, for example (see Section 5.13.10.2, “Classification according to IEC Code 81346_2”)

  • Filter Connection points

    [Note] Note

    Connection points properly positioned have to be available before.

    A connection point can fulfill different tasks, that's why classification for electrical CADs (ECADs) is decisively.

    Depending on class, very different values have to be entered for the specification of points. So it makes a big difference, if a borehole diameter or a stripping length is specified, for example.

    For borehole diameter, attribute CNS_CP|4|2::000008001 applies, whereas for stripping length CNS_CP|4|3::000036001.

    General rules for classifying can hardly be found, because each supplier prefers different definitions, for example for the position of electrical connections. Furthermore the position of electrical connections may depend on whether a stripped wire shall be plugged in or a hard metallic connector (male) [compare shockproof plug]. In the case of the below depicted terminal, which complies with the first case, the electrical connections are near the bottom.

    [a] Classes meant for connection level (and not for the whole part) can be recognized by the prefix "CNS_CP".

Precondition for classifying is an up-to-date CNS classification.

If needed, update the CNS classification via PARTadmin -> Catalog update -> Online.
