RatedCurrent P_BOUNDEDVALUE / IfcElectricCurrentMeasure
Rated CurrentThe current that a device is designed to handle.
RatedVoltage P_BOUNDEDVALUE / IfcElectricVoltageMeasure
Rated VoltageThe voltage that a device is designed to handle.
NominalFrequencyRange P_BOUNDEDVALUE / IfcFrequencyMeasure
Nominal Frequency RangeThe upper and lower limits of frequency for which the operation of the device is certified.
PowerFactor P_SINGLEVALUE / IfcNormalisedRatioMeasure
Power FactorThe ratio between the rated electrical power and the product of the rated current and rated voltage
ConductorFunction P_ENUMERATEDVALUE / IfcLabel / PEnum_ConductorFunctionEnum
Conductor FunctionFunction of a line conductor to which a device is intended to be 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.
NumberOfPoles P_SINGLEVALUE / IfcInteger
Number Of PolesThe number of live lines that is intended to be handled by the device.
HasProtectiveEarth P_SINGLEVALUE / IfcBoolean
Has Protective EarthIndicates whether the electrical device has a protective earth connection (=TRUE) or not (= FALSE).
InsulationStandardClass P_ENUMERATEDVALUE / IfcLabel / PEnum_InsulationStandardClass
Insulation Standard ClassInsulation standard classes provides basic protection information against electric shock. Defines levels of insulation required in terms of constructional requirements (creepage and clearance distances) and electrical requirements (compliance with electric strength tests). Basic insulation is considered to be shorted under single fault conditions. The actual values required depend on the working voltage to which the insulation is subjected, as well as other factors. Also indicates whether the electrical device has a protective earth connection.
IP_ CodeIP Code, the International Protection Marking, IEC 60529), classifies and rates the degree of protection provided against intrusion.
IK_Code P_SINGLEVALUE / IfcLabel IK Code according to IEC 62262 (2002) is a numeric classification for the degree of protection provided by enclosures for electrical equipment against external mechanical impacts.
NOTE  In earlier labeling, the third numeral (1..) had been occasionally added to the closely related IP Code on ingress protection, to indicate the level of impact protection.
