5.13.10.3.2.1. Connections, function groups, IEC symbols in eCl@ss

Since the concept described above has its origin in eCl@ss Advanced, here, the relations shall be clarified once again by using the same part. The scope is especially on connection definitions in the eCl@ss Advanced format.

5.13.10.3.2.1.1. Connections in eCl@ss Advanced

The following figure shows the connection definition in eCl@ss Advanced.

Connections are defined in the FEATURE GROUP ADN293 (="CaX connection and function).

Connections are defined in the FEATURE GROUP ADN293 (="CaX connection and function).

The device has 5 connections (Anschlüsse) and 1 function group (Funktionsgruppe) (compare above figure).

According to this division 3D data and other properties of connections are defined in the sections AAQ672 (="Connection").

Information on connection logic, etc. are determined in the function group.

[Note] Note

Physical and logical connection properties are separated. This strict separation is not so strong in the CNS classification system.

5.13.10.3.2.1.2. Physical connection properties

The most important information of a representative connection for part 2964500 is shown in the next figure. Under AAQ672, beside 3D coordinates with connection direction (see framed data), normally information on conductor material, cross section, its color and stripping lengths, etc. is found. (In this case, classifying is "sparingly" used without this additional information.)

[Note] Note

Connection identifier and position are mandatory.

Properties of connection: The key AAM650 defines connection position and direction according to ISO AXIS ID data type definition. The relation to logical connection properties is realized by connection identifier AAN337 (here ID = 3:1).

5.13.10.3.2.1.3. Functions(groups): logical connection properties

The connection identifier links physical and logical connection properties.[55]

Connection identifiers of the five connections. All other data is hidden. (Above figure is representative for the other connection details omitted here).

In this case applies:

Connection ID
1.1
2.1
3.1
4.1
5.1

In this case the five connections are divided in two functions (see "Number of functions 2"):

Function group with two functions (expanded on first level). Note: eCl@ss is largely independent of languages (English and German function is both described by "AAQ676")

Function group with two functions (expanded on first level). Note: eCl@ss is largely independent of languages (English and German function is both described by "AAQ676")

The relation between connection and function takes place within eCl@ss key AAQ678. Two connections belong to the first function and three connections to the second function. As an example we consider the respective function entry of Identifier "3:1".

Function group with two functions. Two connections (within AAQ678; not displayed here) belong to the first function (green frame). The second function contains three connections (red and blue box). The entries of identifier "3:1" are expanded in the red box. Note the large amount of date, which serves the "bookkeeping" to a great extent.

The entries of identifier "3:1" are expanded in the red box. Note the large amount of date, which serves the "bookkeeping" to a great extent.

The considerations can be summarized as follows: (The function number can indirectly be seen in above figure.)

Connection ID Function number
4.1 1
5.1 1
3.1 2
1.1 2
2.1 2

5.13.10.3.2.1.4. IEC symbols

Now that the logical connections are linked with the physical, the question arises how the respective circuit symbol of the entire device looks like (a device with one function group and two functions). This happens within eCl@ss Keys AAQ520.

[Note] Note

Here, we only consider the "Vanilla Case" without special wishes, etc. Special wishes can definitely also be used in eCl@ss within the scope of IEC symbols. However, they are open for interpretation and base on certain assumptions, which may vary between different target systems. For such cases general symbols are planned (state April 2019).

The part is described by a combination of S00305 (="coil") and S00230 (=switch).

In summary:

Connection ID Function number IEC symbol

Connection name

Connection EclassSymbolMap
4.1 1 S00305 A1 S00305||1||1
5.1 1 S00305 A2 S00305||1||2
3.1 2 S00230 12 S00230||2||1
1.1 2 S00230 14 S00230||2||2
2.1 2 S00230 11 S00230||2||3

[Note] Note

The table is built in the same sequence as the eCl@ss document; if e.g. S00230||2||2 and S00230||2||3 would be reversed, this would result in a wrong circuit. (This is less relevant for the classifying via PARTproject as for the reading in of eCl@ss Advanced.)

On the side of the CNS classification the attribute Connection EclassSymbolMap shows a quite compact formulation of the described concept.

Following figure shows the comparison of the logic from the table with the circuit from the datasheet.
