5.13.10.3.3. Classify "Equivalent potentials"

For terminals often the concept of "equivalent potentials/names" is found. This describes the case of several connections connected with one another.

In the CNS Classification, this is handled in the class CNS_CP|4|3 (Electrical Connection) with the attributes Identifier and Connection Name Equivalences (German: Verbindungsname Äquivalenzen).

Dialog box "Class variables"

Precondition for classifying is that connection points are already set for the respective connections.

In the following the procedure is described for the Weidmüller Terminal 1690000000.

  1. Each connection gets a unique ID under Identifier (e.g. "EC_01.01").

  2. Each connection gets an entry with the IDs of equivalent connections under Connection Name Equivalences (Ger.: Verbindungsname Äquivalenzen.

    Example:

    Let's have a look on the connection with „EC_01.01“. This is equivalent to the connections with Identifier „EC_01.04“, „EC_01.03“ and „EC_01.02“.

    Line Identifier gets following entry:

    EC_01.01

    Line Connection Name Equivalences gets following entry:

    EC_01.04||EC_01.03||EC_01.02

  3. In order for the correct electrical symbol to be assigned, under Connection EclassSymbolMap following entry has to be set:

    E00145||1||2 (or E00145||2||2, E00145||2||1, E00145||1||1)
