Hard to say without knowing exactly what it is. But I have similar items that cross over for multiple technical uses. I have found that segregation works best. Especially if it's something where one use would be known by one crowd, but that same crowd would not know anything about the other use. Most people don't like having to figure something out. They want it spelled out. There also seems to be a psychological advantage to offering something that appears to have a singular purpose. I think people tend to think that it must be "the best" if it is only made for ____. But as an example...
If I had an animal feeder, I would break it down by animal, or at least break it down by size and list the animals. But I would not go so far as to break it down into colors of the animals that can use it. If that makes any sense. Like if you had a small pet water bottle. I would bet you that a water bottle that says it is specifically for hamsters, would sell better than one that just says it's for small rodents.
But once again, it comes down to the item. If it's a technical thing that many people will not know much about, then definitely segregate. If it's something that is ridiculously simple, then probably not.
