5.13.10.13.4. Set Electrical Connections (CNS_CP|4|3) exemplified with a terminal

Electrical connections have a lot of attributes. But they don't have to be explained because the most are self explanatory (e.g. cable cross section, number of connection, etc.).

In the following we will show how to classify connection points as Electrical Connection in principle.

For this example the Weidmüller terminal "1267910000" is used.

The attribute values to be entered can be taken from the datasheet.

Weidmüller Terminal, Order-No. 1267910000 - Extract from data sheet: Conductors for clamping (rated connection)

  1. In PARTproject, under Project selection, select the desired 3db file.

  2. Under Edit project -> Preview, click on the context menu command Choose connection point.

    ➝ The same named dialog box is opened with all available connection points.

    [Important] Important

    Because you get a list without a visual representation of the points, it is crucial that you name the connection points clearly and logically.

    You should name them according to the names from the datasheet, customer requests or electrical rules.

  3. Select the connection point to be classified and confirm with OK.

    -> Below the Preview, a dialog is opened where you can select the class to be assigned. There on the right side, the related attributes are displayed.

  4. Select the class Electrical Connection (=CNS_CP|4|3), set the checkmark in the beginning of the line and fill out the values of the displayed attributes.

    [Note] Note

    A single connection point can have several classifications

    Alternatively you can save and then edit the attributes of Electrical Connection in the dialog Class variables.

  5. Save in PARTproject and update the index . Afterwards the attributes are also visible in PARTdataManager in the part information.
