5.13.10.3. Classification of Electrical Connections [CNS_CP|4|3])

[Note] Note

Precondition:

All electrical contacts have to be equipped with a Connection point.

Information of parts already classified according to eCl@ss, can be mapped to the CNS classification. Otherwise 3D data in PARTsolutions (connection points classified as electrical connections) have to be equipped with additional information from data sheet.

CADENAS supports a certain subset of connection properties (class Electrical Connection), which are defined under eCl@ss ADVANCED. This subset can be enhanced anytime on request.

Following figure shows the currently available connection properties (Electrical Connection = CNS_CP|4|3) [in red frame] called under PARTproject -> Extras menu -> Class systems: edit....

Class system CNS -> Filter Connection points -> Insertion Point -> Elektro -> Electrical Connection

Class system CNS -> Filter Connection points -> Insertion Point -> Elektro -> Electrical Connection

The following figure shows the currently available connection properties (Electrical Connection = CNS_CP|4|3) called under PARTproject -> Edit project -> tabbed page General -> Attributes (CNS)

Attributes (CNS) -> Class CNS_CP|4|3 (Electrical Connection)

Attributes (CNS) -> Class CNS_CP|4|3 (Electrical Connection)

The following listing exemplarily picks out some attributes and shows possible values:

  • Connection Type:

    Currently supported connection types (upgradeable on request)

    Band connection AAR616
    Bolt connection AAK940
    Cable terminal screw AAK941
    Clamping strap AAK942
    Conductor plate connection WAA067
    Female connector AAR874
    Flat plug-in connector BAA481
    Frame clamp AAK944
    Male connector AAR875
    Plug-in connection WAA068
    Rail connection AAK946
    Ring cable connection AAK945

    You can set the type in the dialog Class variables.

    Furthermore you can set the type in the dialog area Published elements.

    [Note] Note

    In any case avoid free textual input, but set the desired type via list field selection in order to avoid errors.

  • Connection Additional Length:

    Numerical value in mm

  • Connection Min. Max. Cross Section Area:
