"GAUGE" Attribute Name

194 Views, 2 Replies

In the "conductor list" option for cable, there are spaces for "color/ID" and "gauge". I would like to create a cable marker symbol (HW01-xx) that will display the "color/ID" as well as the "gauge" when inserting a cable. I have found the the "color/ID" attribute is actually called "Rating1" for the HW01xx symbol, but can not figure out what the "gauge" attribute is called. Does anyone know the attribute name for "gauge"? Thanks and please see attachment.

Don't know if this is what you want to show regarding the gauge.

 

Goto the Schematic tab > Insert Wires panel> Wire Number Leader drop-down > Wire Color/Gauge Labels.

You can edit the wires gauge text and insert next to the cable markers.

 

As for the Gauge attribute, maybe you need to add new attribute for it, not very sure on this.

Anyone?

This information is not transferred to the symbol as far as I can see.

Do you need this information for every cable part?

 

If it's enough with a "4x2,5mm2" on the cable parent, you could always put "DESC1=4x2.5mm2" in the TEXTVALUE field for your cable. Also, make sure the DESC1 attribute is available.

Or, you could create your own cable parent, and add a GAUGE-attribute to it, and use "GAUGE=4x2.5mm2" in the TEXTVALUE field.
