Terminal block with the number HT0002 contains attributes X2PIN01, X4PIN01, X1PIN01, X8PIN01. The note did not find any information about these attributes. What are they used?
Solved! Go to Solution.
In IEC, you not only assign a Terminal number to each Terminal (including each level in a 2/3 level terminal block) but you also can assign a nunber to each side of the terminal. Thiat information is be stored in the X#PIN## attribute.
For example, say we assign the top screw of a terminal (we will call this TB10) to 1 (X2PIN01=1) and the bottom to 2 (X8PIN01=2).
Then, when running a To/From report, it would report a wire connected to the top of the terminal block to TB10.1 and to the bottom TB10.2.
This allows the designer to be very specific as to where a wire is landed on the terminal. (Since you can draw the schematic so that it depicts exactly how the system is wired.)
Also, the X# value represents its position on the block
X1 is Right.
X2 is Top
X4 is Left
X8 is Bottom.

For example, terminal XT1 1 has two levels: top and bottom (pic1), pin numbers 1, 2, 3, 4.
These pin numbers are not the values of the attributes of the block terminals NT0002 (pic2).
Can I display the pin numbers in the drawing and report?
