Subclass of CIM_PhysicalConnector
The Slot class represents Connectors into which Packages are inserted. For example, a PhysicalPackage that is a DiskDrive may be inserted into an SCA ‘Slot’. As another example, a Card (subclass of PhysicalPackage) may be inserted into a 16-, 32-, or 64-bit expansion ‘Slot’ on a HostingBoard. PCI or PCMCIA Type III Slots are examples of the latter.
A boolean indicating whether the Slot is currently powered (TRUE) or not (FALSE).
A free-form string describing that this Slot is physically unique and may hold special types of hardware. This property only has meaning when the corresponding boolean property, SpecialPurpose, is set to TRUE.
Boolean indicating that this Slot is physically unique and may hold special types of hardware, e.g. a graphics processor slot. If set to TRUE, then the property, Special PurposeDescription (a string), should specify the nature of the uniqueness or purpose of the Slot.
Maximum height of an adapter Card that can be inserted into the Slot, in inches.
Maximum bus width of adapter Cards that can be inserted into this Slot, in bits. If the value is ‘unknown’, enter 0. If the value is other than 8, 16, 32, 64 or 128, enter 1.
A boolean indicating whether the switch state of the Slot is currently open (TRUE) or closed (FALSE). This switch state determines whether the contents of the Slot can be hot-plugged.
An array of integers defining the type of PhysicalConnector. An array is specified to allow the description of ‘combinations’ of Connector information. For example, one array entry could specify RS-232 (value=25), another DB-25 (value=23) and a third entry define the Connector as “Male” (value=2).
This single property is being deprecated in lieu of using separate properties to describe the various aspects of the connector. The separation allows for a more generic means of describing the connectors. Obsolete connectors were intentionally removed from the new list.

An array of strings that identify the components that are compatible and can be inserted in a slot. This allows vendors to provide clues to the system administrators by providing sufficient information to request the appropriate hardware that can populate the slot. In order to ensure uniqueness within the NameSpace, each value defined by the vendor for use in the VendorCompatibilityStrings property SHOULD be constructed using the following ‘preferred’ algorithm:
Where <OrgID> and <LocalID> are separated by a colon ‘:’, and where <OrgID> MUST include a copyrighted, trademarked or otherwise unique name that is owned by the business entity creating/defining the InstanceID, or is a registered ID that is assigned to the business entity by a recognized global authority (This is similar to the <Schema Name>_<Class Name> structure of Schema class names.) In addition, to ensure uniqueness <OrgID> MUST NOT contain a colon (‘:’). When using this algorithm, the first colon to appear in InstanceID MUST appear between <OrgID> and <LocalID>.
<LocalID> is chosen by the business entity and SHOULD not be re-used to identify different underlying (real-world) elements.
Boolean indicating whether the Slot supports hot-plug of adapter Cards.
An array of enumerated integers indicating the Vpp voltage supported by this Slot.

Maximum length of an adapter Card that can be inserted into the Slot, in inches.
Maximum link width of a switching bus type, such as Infiniband and PCI Express. The width is expressed in number of communication lines, or lanes, between port and devices. This property dictates the maximum link width, in lanes, of adapter Cards that can be inserted into this Slot. If the value is ‘unknown’, enter 0.

The Number property indicates the physical slot number, which can be used as an index into a system slot table, whether or not that slot is physically occupied.
