IFC (IFC4X3_ADD2) under development Pset_DistributionPortTypeCable Semantic definition

Cable port occurrence attributes attached to an instance of IfcDistributionPort. Applicable entities Properties

Name Property Type Data Type Description
ElectricalConnectionType IfcPropertyEnumeratedValue PEnum_DistributionPortElectricalType

The physical port connection:

ACPLUG: AC plug DCPLUG: DC plug CRIMP: bare wire

ConnectionSubtype IfcPropertySingleValue IfcLabel

The physical port connection subtype that further qualifies the ConnectionType. The following values are recommended:

  • ACPLUG: A, B, C, D, E, F, EF, G, H, I, J, K, L, M
  • DIN: Mini3P, Mini4P, Mini5P, Mini6P, Mini7P, Mini8P, Mini9P
  • DSub: DA15, DB25, DC37, DD50, DE9, DE15
  • EIAJ: RC5720
  • HDMI: A, B, C
  • RADIO: IEEE802.11g, IEEE802.11n
  • RJ: 4P4C, 6P2C, 8P8C
  • SOCKET: E-11, E-12, E-14, E-17, E-26, E-27, E-39, E-40
  • TRS: TS_Mini, TS_SubMini, TRS_Mini, TRS_SubMini
ConnectionGender IfcPropertyEnumeratedValue PEnum_DistributionPortGender

The physical connection gender.

ConductorFunction IfcPropertyEnumeratedValue PEnum_ConductorFunctionEnum

Indicates function of the conductors to which the load is connected. Where L1, L2 and L3 represent the phase lines according to IEC 60446 notation (sometimes phase lines may be referenced by color [Red, Blue, Yellow] or by number [1, 2, 3] etc). Protective Earth is sometimes also known as CPC or common protective conductor. Note that for an electrical device, a set of line conductor functions may be applied.

CurrentContent3rdHarmonic IfcPropertySingleValue IfcPositiveRatioMeasure

The ratio between the third harmonic current and the phase current.

Current IfcPropertyBoundedValue IfcElectricCurrentMeasure

The actual current and operable range.

Voltage IfcPropertyBoundedValue IfcElectricVoltageMeasure

The actual voltage and operable range.

Power IfcPropertyBoundedValue IfcPowerMeasure

The actual power and operable range.

Protocols IfcPropertyListValue IfcIdentifier

For data ports, identifies the protocols used as defined by the Open System Interconnection (OSI) Basic Reference Model (ISO 7498). Layers include: 1. Physical; 2. DataLink; 3. Network; 4. Transport; 5. Session; 6. Presentation; 7. Application. Example: 3:IP, 4:TCP, 5:HTTP

HasConnector IfcPropertySingleValue IfcBoolean

Indicate whether the wire pair end point is terminated with a connector or not.

IsWelded IfcPropertySingleValue IfcBoolean

Indicates whether the wire pair end point is joined to another wire pair end point by means of a welded junction.
