Manual Additional information

  • Classification according to eClass

    For a successful export to Zuken, also a part classification according to eClass is required (minimum V9.0 or higher, best v10.0).

    Furthermore classification according to CNS has to be performed. (See rest of document.)

  • GTIN in table

    Article number and GTIN have thematic aspects in common.

    GTIN is also important and is currently provided by Phoenix and Weidmüller.

    GTIN should be part of the table and then also would be part of MIDENT automatically.

    [Note] Note

    What is the GTIN?

    GTIN (Global Trade Item Number) is an identifier descended from the GS1 system (formerly EAN system) for the labeling of trade units.

    GTIN can be encrypted in a barcode. By reading the barcode, companies are able to handle products and related information efficiently and correctly; for example when taking over of goods into the storage, sales at the POS or administering medication in hospitals.

    GTINs can be used in order to uniquely identify trade units, be it in catalogs, electronic messages like orders or sending invoices. Embedded in websites GTINs can optimize the functionality of search engines, etc.

  • Product coordinate system (excerpt from Guideline eCl@ss CAx Expert Group)

    In ECAD the coordinate system forms an independent product coordinate system and is independent from the actual positioning of the product in the application space. All coordinate information is specified in this product coordinate system.

    The origin of the product coordinate system is to be found on the standard assembly plane of the product. The standard assembly plane is a space-independent virtual plane to which the product is fastened in the normal operating position.

    The standard assembly plane is placed on the X/Y plane, whereby the X direction is the direction of arrangement in rows.
