Manual  Mounting Description (CNS_CP|4|7)

Mounting Point describes at which places of the component other components can be mounted.

Mounting Description describes point and direction where the part itself can be plugged into a compatible component (DIN rail, directly on the plate, etc.). For this reason the connection point has to be correctly positioned, otherwise the device will get a wrong orientation.

[Note] Note

With regard to two parts to mount it means, that one of them has a connection point classified according to Mounting Point and the other a connection point classified according to Mounting Description. Both classes have an attribute Description and this needs to have the same value in order for the parts to be able to be mounted.

Example: DIN-rail (TS35) with some mounted electrical equipment

For rails the following must be observed:

  • The connection point should lie on the same plane as the surface of the device that touches the mounting rail.

  • The connection point should be positioned in the middle of the mounting "hooks" on the left side of the device.

In the following setting a Mounting Description is described:

  1. Select a connection point.

  2. Classify the connection point as Mounting Description (CNS_CP|4|7). (Preferably a connection point had been created especially for this purpose.)

  3. Fill out the attributes as usual.

  4. In particular, enter a value for the attribute Link ID.

    [Note] Note

    Ideally LinkID is unique in the whole document.

  5. Save the progress and in PARTproject, change to the tabbed page General.

    Here, open the Classification (CNS).

  6. In the Filter, set the option Classes and under Elektro -> Auxiliary, via double-click on the class Mounting Description (CNSELEK|5|3), add the needed number of appropriate instances (1,2,3,4,...).

    [Note] Note

    Via instances you can control, at which Mounting Points the device can be mounted.

    LinkID has to have the same unique value both in the main class (CNS_CP|4|7) and in the subclasses (CNSELEK|5|3).

    The device can later be mounted at Mounting Points with Description "Descr1", "Descr2" and "Descr3".

  7. Open Attributes (CNS).

  8. In the attribute Link ID, enter the same value which you entered before in the class Mounting Description (CNS_CP|4|7).

    Under Description, enter the specific name which has to match the respective value under Mounting Point -> Description.

    Here in this example the value TS35 is the Mounting Type of the device (TS35 = DIN rail 35mm).
