|bend radius||The bend radius is the minimum bend radius allowed for the bundle segment.|
|branch||A set of bundle segments that share the same centerline.|
|bundle||For electrical bundle: A document containing wires routed through geometrical bundles.|
|bundle segment||A geometrical subdivision of a geometrical bundle.
It is the wire graphical representation in the digital mock-up. The bundle segment is created according to several rules:
Where the term single bundle segment occurs in this guide, it refers to a CATPart document created under the active product that contains just one bundle segment.
|connector||An electrical component providing an electrical interface between two bundles, an item of equipment and a bundle or between wires. Comprises one or more electrical terminations. They are of two types: physical connector (from Electrical Library, Catalog or V4) and functional connector (from EFD application).|
|diameter||Corresponds to the wire diameter together with the insulation.|
|device||Generic term for connector, equipment, shell, etc.|
|effectivity||A data fork of values in which an option is effective.|
|electrical bundle||A document containing the wires routed through geometrical bundles.|
|electrical system||An electrical unit which accomplishes a specific function. Consists of equipment, connectors and signals. Described in a CATProduct document.|
|electrical termination||Electrical connection (often called pin) on a connector|
|equipment||Electrical device comprising one or more associated connectors.|
|geometrical bundle||A document containing an assembly of connectors, supports and insulation, as well as the geometric representation of a harness.|
|harness||An assembly of wires, connectors, supports and insulation manufactured together. Represented in CATIA by both geometrical and electrical bundles.|
|instance||Designation of reference placed in a context, i.e. in
design mode. An instance can have additional characteristics that do not
belong to the reference. For example, the instance of a wire has a length
attribute in an assembly context when its reference doesn't out of this
As opposed, see reference.
|multi-branchable document||A set of branches, themselves containing bundle segments,
connected or not, composing the harness. It corresponds to a CATPart
See also single bundle segment document.
|pin||An electrical termination|
|properties||Attributes of a component that define its electrical, mechanical, etc. characteristics.|
|protective covering||Covering element wrapping the conductor and possibly the insulating coating bringing out a mechanical protection. It can be a sleeve, a corrugated tube, a taping, etc.|
|reference||Describes a real object. A reference can be stored in a
catalog. In the electrical context a reference corresponds either to:
See also instance.
|routing||An operation that computes the optimized wire route between two or more extremities of a signal.|
|section||Corresponds to the section of the wire together with the insulation.|
|segment||Refers to bundle segments, whether grouped in branches in a multi-branchable document or created as single bundle segments in bundle segment documents.|
|single bundle segment document||Corresponds to a CATPart document containing just
one bundle segment.
See also multi-branchable document.
|sleeve||Can be of two types:
|wire||Electrical wire: physical object corresponding to a signal|
|wire connection||An electrical object linking two or more wires that share a common extremity|
