Bosch Terminal Designations

 Terminal Designations  (Excerpts from DIN Standard 72 552)
 The terminal designations do not identify the conductors, because device
 with different terminal designations can be connected at the two ends of
 each conductor.  If the number of terminal designations is not
 sufficient (multiple-contact connections), the terminals are
 consecutively numbered using numbers or letters whose representations
 of specific functions are not standardized.
