5.13.10.5.2. Definition of the single cable elements in linear form

For each of the cable elements, a Name should exist (exception whole cable).

  • Following table shows the possible attributes of the whole cable [Cable] (CNSELEK|8|2|1):

    Cables are on top level and do not have a parent element.

    Parameter Description Value
    Identifier Unique name e.g. Cable_ID|0
    JacketMaterial Insulation String
    JacketColour Color of insulation DIN 47100 (example value)
    MinBendRadius Minimal bend radius [mm]
    OuterDiameter Outer diameter [mm]
    NumberCores Total number of all cores Integer
    CopperNumber Copper number [kg/m]

  • Following table shows the possible attributes of cable bundle (CNSELEK|8|2|3), cable shield (CNSELEK|8|2|4) and cable twist (CNSELEK|8|2|5):

    Parameter Description Value
    Identifier Unique name e.g. CableTwist_ID|1
    Name Name Sequential number

  • Following table shows the possible attributes of cable cores (CNSELEK|8|2|2):

    Note: Cores are the lowest element within the recursive depiction of cables, which means they do not have child elements.

    For cores the Name is build by the value of the color code of the insulation according to DIN 47100 and the diameter, which have to be set mandatorily. This allows maximal portability of cable data.

    Parameter Description Value
    Identifier Unique name e.g. CableCore_ID|1|1
    Name Combination of color code of insulation according to DIN 47100 and diameter Example: RD-0,25mm²
    Colour Color of insulation according to DIN 47100
    CrossSection Cross section of copper conductor [mm²]
    OuterDiameter Outer diameter (incl. insulation) [mm²]

This attribute list can be flexibly enhanced if needed (preferably for the whole cable or cores). An example would be the inductivity of cable per meter (MicroHenry/m), etc.
