ECLASS 6.0.x

ECLASS 6.0.x

With the purchase of ECLASS 6.0.x you purchase a license for ECLASS 6.0.x in all available languages. ECLASS 6.0.x has been published on 2008-04-30.

Most of the language versions are partly translated; the rest filled with the English original.

The Release ECLASS 6.0.x in comparison to release 5.1.4 includes more than 4,400 new classes, 4,300 new keywords and 3,800 properties. Furthermore large-scale changes in the data structure result in huge improvements of the classification.

Update 2018-05-07: Due to a request of an ECLASS member, the ECLASS association decided to publish the Release 6.0.x (as well as the Release 5.1.4) subsequently also in XML format, for the languages German and English. The XML format was originally introduced to Release 7.0.

The substantive changes of the content of Release 6.0.x, in comparison to Release 5.1.4, concern the following branches/segments:

  • Energy industry (several segments)
  • White goods – CECED (several segments)
  • Laboratory technology – new structure (segment 32)
  • Food (new subject group 16)
  • Office supplies - new structure (segment 24)
  • Medicine, Medical technology, Life science (segment 34)
  • Information, communication and media technology (segment 19)
  • Construction products / Construction service / Facility Management (segment 22)
  • Special tool – basis DIN 4000
  • ETIM – (partial) harmonization(several segments)
  • profiCl@ss – (partial) harmonization (several segments)
  • Sanitary / Heating / Climate (several segments)

All available downloads at the ECLASS DownloadPortal principally contain a complete ECLASS version in csv format (for initial implementation). For information on the data structure, please refer to the enclosed README file.

Content ECLASS 6.0.x BASIC (csv):

  • classes file (complete)
  • properties file (complete)
  • keywords file (complete)
  • values file (complete)
  • class-property relations file (complete)
  • property-value relations file (complete)
  • README file

Content ECLASS 6.0.x BASIC (XML):

  • Dictionaries: include 27 XML files, hence for each segment one XML file that contains the complete content of the relevant segment (Classes, Keywords, Properties, Values and relations) (complete)
  • Templates: Folder without content
    Templates were originally introduced with ECLASS Release 7.0. However, in order to enable a trouble-free import into eCatCreator, for example, the established structure of the XML-zip-file is not changed.
    Further note: Since Release 10.0.1 the Template folder has been delivered without content. The reason for this is the future handling with templates to deliver and publish only "default" templates with substantial content. This may change for future Releases. Templates contain a Data Requirement Statement for the data exchange, in which can be defined e.g. sequences or optional and mandatory fields between the data transmitter and the receiver.
