List of Cables

I will start by drawing symbols.

First a switch, ... then a terminal strip ... and a motor.

I will rename the switch to, let's say K1.

Now I'll draw the wires.

I set up the two color wires using the style library.

I remove the labels of the terminal, because they are not needed here.

Now I draw the cables (using the menu command Insert - Cable).

I can label the individual wires of the cable. I will call them for example ... a b c d, and determine whether these labels should be visible. With the help of this button I can activate the visibility for all the labels at once.

To make the drawing more interesting, I copy the whole circuit.

Now let's look at the cable list. It should contain 4 cables.

Each cable has a name, a type which I can change here, a a length, which I can write here, as far as I know it, where the cable comes from, in the form of symbol : connectors.

Then there is the identification of the wires here, the identification of the connections and where the cable goes.

If I activate the checkbox Expand rows, each core of the cable will be displayed in a row.

If a column is not needed, I press the button Columns and I can delete it here.

For example, if I don't need a column, I can delete it here and the column disappears.

We can still look at the terminal list. The drawing contains 8 terminals and this list contains 8 rows. Each line corresponds to one terminal. In the middle there is the terminal name and on the sides you can see what the sides you can see what the terminal is connected to from each side.

If the terminal list in your drawing does not work properly, check the settings of the terminals. Click with the right mouse button on the terminal and select Setup connection points. Each terminal should have 2 connections: an input and an output.

In the Properties panel it is necessary to specify that it is a terminal.
