Setting Custom Blocks to have Load definitions

Is there a way to give a custom block to have electrical properties so you can implement them into a panel schedule?  I created a lighting block for a LED Highbay through the "block" command.  I would like to be able to give it properties.  Also, the same with receptacles. 

 

 

 

 

Thanks!!

I realize that this post is in the AutoCAD MEP forum, but the question you've posed could either fall into AutoCAD MEP or AutoCAD Electrical.  In which program are you actually working?

I was able find that I could right click the specific block, "Convert To" -->> "Device", then give it specfic properties that relates to my project.  Once I finished there I was able to go "Electrical Properties" under circuits in the Properties Menu and adjust the values as well as assign it to the appropriate panel and circuit.

 

Thanks!!
