1.2         Architecture (Symbol 1-2)

We define architecture as a combination of device modularity (single-piece or modular) for vaporizers and all five vaping device classes (CLs, APVs, EHs, HWOVs and HDs) 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:

Note: In all cases, the DHp (heater and part of the construction where the dry substance is placed) is integrated into the device and is not removable or replaceable.

DHp is part of a device that vaporizes plant solids. It consists of a heater and a structural element where a dry substance is placed for subsequent heating - a shaft, a container, etc.

Lp is the part of the device in which the evaporative liquid is located or the part of the device in which the evaporative liquid and atomizer are located.

 

1.2.1     Architecture of Evaporators (Es)

1 – Single-Piece without Connector

A single-piece vaporizer without connector is built of components that cannot be separated from each other, removed or replaced.  It is integrated with a power supply into a vaping device that cannot be disassembled. 

2 – Single-Piece with Coaxial Connector

A single-piece vaporizer with a coaxial connector is built of components that cannot be separated from each other, removed or replaced.  Its coaxial connector can be integrated with a mating power supply connector by inserting the circular outer rim of the former into the receptacle of the latter.  This connector includes two electric contacts: one located at the outer rim and the other centered inside it.  The central contact is insulated from the outer one.  Fastening of the vaporizer to the power supply is secured with magnets.

3 – Single-Piece with Bayonet Connector

A single-piece vaporizer with a bayonet connector is built of components that cannot be separated from each other, removed or replaced.  Its bayonet connector uses the ‘insert and turn’ method to secure the connection.

4 – Single-Piece with Treaded Connector

A single-piece vaporizer with a threaded connector is built of components that cannot be separated from each other, removed or replaced.  Its threaded connector is used for integrating a vaporizer with a mating power supply.

5 – Modular with Coaxial Connector

A modular vaporizer with a coaxial connector is built of components can be separated from each other, removed or replaced.  Its coaxial connector can be integrated with a mating power supply connector by inserting the circular outer rim of the former into the receptacle of the latter.  This connector includes two electric contacts: one located at the outer rim and the other centered inside it.  The central contact is insulated from the outer one.  Fastening of the vaporizer to the power supply is secured with magnets. 

6 – Modular with Bayonet Connector

A modular vaporizer with a bayonet connector is a device that can be disassembled and its battery / power supply and vaporizer modules can be removed and replaced.  Its bayonet connector uses the ‘insert and turn’ method to secure the connection.

7 – Modular with Treaded Connector

A modular device with a threaded connector is a device that can be disassembled and its battery / power supply and vaporizer modules can be removed and replaced. It incorporates a threaded connector that is used for connecting the vaporizer module with the battery.

8 –Modular with contact pads for Pogo Pin Connector

The contact pads are located at the removable element (cartridge or pod). When installing a removable element, the contact pads are adjacent to the spring-loaded pins. This allows for creating a reliable electrical connection.

 

1.2.2     Architecture of Power Supplies (Ps)

1 – Without Connector

A power supply without connector is integrated with a vaporizer into a vaping device that cannot be disassembled. 

5 – With Coaxial Connector

A power supply with a coaxial connector can be integrated with a mating vaporizer connector by inserting the circular outer rim of the latter into the receptacle of the former.  This connector includes two electric contacts: one located at the outer rim and the other centered inside it.  The central contact is insulated from the outer one.  Fastening of the power supply to the vaporizer is secured with magnets.

6 – With Bayonet Connector

A power supply with a bayonet connector can be integrated with a mating vaporizer connector by using the ‘insert and turn’ method to secure integration of a vaporizer and a power supply into a vaping device.

7 – With Treaded Connector

A power supply with a threaded connector can be integrated with a mating vaporizer connector by using a threaded connector.

8 –Modular with Pogo Pin Connector

Pogo Pin connector means spring-loaded pins, which are usually located in the housing of a device in which the power source is accommodated. The contact pads are located at the removable element (cartridge or pod). When installing a removable element, the contact pads are adjacent to the spring-loaded pins. This allows for creating a reliable electrical connection.

 

1.2.3     Architecture of CLs, APV, EHs, HWOVs and HDs

1 – Single-Piece without Connector

A single-piece device contains a built-in vaporizer and a power supply assembly that cannot be separated from each other and their parts cannot be removed or replaced. 

5 – Modular with Coaxial Connector

A modular device with a coaxial connector is a device that can be disassembled and its power supply and/or vaporizer modules can be removed or replaced.  Its vaporizer can be integrated with a mating power supply by inserting the circular outer rim of the latter into the receptacle of the former.  This connector includes two electric contacts: one located at the outer rim and the other centered inside it.  The central contact is insulated from the outer one.  Fastening of the power supply to the vaporizer is secured with magnets.

6 – Modular with Bayonet Connector

A modular device with a bayonet connector is a device that can be disassembled and its power supply and/or vaporizer modules can be removed or replaced.  Its bayonet connector uses the ‘insert and turn’ method to secure integration of a vaporizer and a power supply into a vaping device.

7 – Modular with Treaded Connector

A modular device with a threaded connector is a device that can be disassembled and its power supply and/or vaporizer modules can be removed or replaced.  Its threaded connector is used for integrating a vaporizer with a mating power supply.

8 – Modular with Pogo Pins Connector and Contact Pads

A modular device with a Pogo pins connector is a device that can be disassembled and its power supply and/or vaporizer modules can be removed or replaced. The Pogo Pin usually takes the form of a slender cylinder containing two sharp, spring-loaded pins. Pressed between two electronic circuits, the sharp points at each end of the Pogo Pin make secure contacts with the two circuits and thereby connect them together.
