IFC (IFC4X3_ADD2) under development Pset_CableSegmentTypeConductorSegment Semantic definition

An electrical conductor is a single linear element with the specific purpose to lead electric current. The core of one lead is normally single wired or multiwired which are intertwined. According to IEC 60050: IEV 195-01-07, a conductor is a conductive part intended to carry a specified electric current. Applicable entities Properties

Name Property Type Data Type Description
CrossSectionalArea IfcPropertySingleValue IfcAreaMeasure

Cross section area of the phase(s) lead(s).

Function IfcPropertyEnumeratedValue PEnum_FunctionEnum

Type of function for which the conductor is intended.

ConductorMaterial IfcPropertyEnumeratedValue PEnum_MaterialEnum

Type of material from which the conductor is constructed.

Construction IfcPropertyEnumeratedValue PEnum_ConstructionEnum

Purpose of informing on how the vonductor is constructed (interwined or solid). I.e. Solid (IEV 461-01-06), stranded (IEV 461-01-07), solid-/finestranded(IEV 461-01-11) (not flexible/flexible).

ConductorShape IfcPropertyEnumeratedValue PEnum_ShapeEnum

Indication of the shape of the conductor.

NominalCurrent IfcPropertySingleValue IfcElectricCurrentMeasure

The nominal current that is designed to be measured.

ACResistance IfcPropertySingleValue IfcElectricResistanceMeasure

The resistance under AC.

ThermalExpansionCoefficient IfcPropertySingleValue IfcThermalExpansionCoefficientMeasure

Quantity characterizing the variation with thermodynamic temperature T of the distance l between two points of a body, under given conditions (IEC 113-04-27). The ratio is defined per Kelvin.

CurrentCarryingCapacity IfcPropertySingleValue IfcElectricCurrentMeasure

Maximum value of electric current which can be carried continuously by a conductor, a device or an apparatus, under specified conditions without its steady-state temperature exceeding a specified value. Based on IEC60826-11-13. NOTE: The temperature specified value is maximum Design Ambient Temperature.

UltimateTensileStrength IfcPropertySingleValue IfcForceMeasure

Indicates the maximum stress that a material or element can withstand before breaking while being stretched or pulled.

MassPerLength IfcPropertySingleValue IfcMassPerLengthMeasure

Mass per length, i.e. mass of a beam with a unit length of extrusion. For example measured in kg/m.

TensileStrength IfcPropertySingleValue IfcPressureMeasure

Indicates the ability to withstand breakage apart under applied force.

YoungModulus IfcPropertySingleValue IfcModulusOfElasticityMeasure

A measure of the Young's modulus of elasticity of the material.

DCResistance IfcPropertySingleValue IfcElectricResistanceMeasure

The resistance under direct current and 20 degrees centigrade.

OverallDiameter IfcPropertySingleValue IfcPositiveLengthMeasure

The overall diameter of a object.

NumberOfCores IfcPropertySingleValue IfcCountMeasure

The number of cores.

RatedVoltage IfcPropertyBoundedValue IfcElectricVoltageMeasure

The range of allowed voltage that a device is certified to handle. The upper bound of this value is the maximum.
