Architecture (Symbol 1-2)

Full category name: Overall Device Attributes

We define architecture as a combination of device modularity (single-piece or modular) for vaporizers and all the four vaping device classes (CLs, APVs, EHs and HWOVs) and a type of connector between the unit vaporizer and power supply for vaporizers, power supplies, CLs, APVs and EHs.  It is designated with ten numeric options assigned to the second symbol of the Overall Device Attribute group.

The meaning of the “Single-Piece” and “Modular” terms is different for vaporizers and each class of the vaping devices.  Specifically, when this option is selected for a vaporizer, it means that this vaporizer is built as a single-piece unit.  When the same option is selected for a vaping device, it means that this vaping device is built as a single-piece unit.  For example, a refillable single-piece vaporizer with non-serviceable coil and a coaxial connector of subcategory E2 can be used as a major component of a refillable modular single-piece APV with non-serviceable coil and a coaxial connector of subcategory M5.

Since the coding system is different for different major components and vaping device classes, we begin code description with listing codes for each device category:

Es

1 – Single-Piece, Without Connector

2 – Single-Piece, with Coaxial Connector

3 – Single-Piece, with Bayonet Connector

4 – Single-Piece, with Threaded Connector

5 – Modular, with Coaxial Connector

6 – Modular, with Bayonet Connector

7 – Modular, with Threaded Connector

8 – Modular with contact pads for Pogo Pin Connector

Ps

1 – Single-Piece, Without Connector

5 – With Coaxial Connector

6 – With Bayonet Connector

7 – With Threaded Connector

8 – Modular with Pogo Pin Connector

CLs, APVs, EHs and HWOVs

1 – Single-Piece, Without Connector

5 – Modular, with Coaxial Connector

6 – Modular, with Bayonet Connector

7 – Modular, with Threaded Connector

8 – Modular with Pogo Pins Connector and Contact Pads
