The data structure behind HolderRings

Every component defined in the User Interface has behind him some data files which contain properties and parameters related to the component itself. These files are placed in the folder of the standard rule. The main files associated to the family of components are the followings: ANtenuta.ini and *.UNI

Every numbered section is related to an icon of the component in the User Interface, and every record contains these fields:

  • DataFile -> File containing the data values useful to build the component
  • Rule -> Name of the Standard Rule
  • Description -> Description of the Standard Rule

For example, this is the structure of a ANtenuta.ini file

# Data file       Rule Description
S-CRW1.UNI   | ISO_CRW1 | Holder rings for rotating shaft

S-HMSA27.UNI | ISO_HMSA27 | Holder rings for rotating shaft with dust seal
S-HMSA7.UNI    | ISO_HMSA7 | Holder rings for rotating shaft with dust seal

S-HMSA27.UNI | ISO_HMSA27 | Holder rings
S-CRS1.UNI    | ISO_S-CRS1 | Holder rings


Under each section it is possible to place several records; every record refers to a particular rule.

The *.UNI files, contain the fields of the standard values related to HolderRings normative; the structure of the files are self-explaining.
