Provides a list of properties and data types for
electrical products to enhance BIM models with interoperable data for
design, construction, operation and maintenance of electrical systems in
buildings. This Standard covers:
- Light Fixtures
- Electrical Devices (Receptacles, Switches)
- Electrical Appliances (Refrigerators, Ranges, etc.)
- Electrical Equipment (Circuits, Panels and Transformers)
Standard is not intended to cover geometry for creating 3-D BIM models,
but rather define electrical product data requirements with optional
levels of compliance to support electrical system design, construction,
operation, and maintenance.
*Packaged with this Standard is an accompanying white paper, BIM Content for Electrical Products: Current Status and Industry Needs, and a text file of code, NEMA Standard Shared Parameters, that users can import into Revit, a CAD software system.
