7.4.3.9 IfcCableSegment

Segment de câble
Kabelsegment

A cable segment is a flow segment used to carry electrical power, data, or telecommunications signals.

A cable segment is used to typically join two sections of an electrical network or a network of components carrying the electrical service.

Attribute Definitions:

PredefinedType :

Identifies the predefined types of cable segment from which the type required may be set.

Formal Propositions:

CorrectPredefinedType : Either the PredefinedType attribute is unset (e.g. because an IfcCableSegmentType is associated), or the inherited attribute ObjectType shall be provided, if the PredefinedType is set to USERDEFINED.
CorrectTypeAssigned : Either there is no cable segment type object associated, i.e. the IsTypedBy inverse relationship is not provided, or the associated type object has to be of type IfcCableSegmentType.
