Wire Tagging on Rung

51 Views, 1 Replies

The engineers I work for are used to seeing wire numbers on the rung - including the wires adjacent to the power and neutral busses. The Automatic Wire Number function seems to put a single wire number in about the middle of the column adjacent to the bus, where it can easily get lost in the rung numbers on the power side and component descriptions on the neutral. Is there a way to force AE to tag each rung with the power and neutral wire number? (Hope this question makes sense).

You can add extra wire number "smart copies" to extra places on each wire
rung or network, but you have to pick where you want them to go. On the main
AutoCAD Electrical toolbar, pick on the "Copy Wire Nums" toolbar button
(looks like a wire segment with a "#" at each end). Then pick,pick,pick...
on the wire positions where you want the smart wire number copies to pop in.
They will automatically update and follow the wire network's "main" wire
number (which should show up as a different color).
