Output Module UE410-R0 - How to represent one in ACADE?

I have the need to represent device that has 2 relays built  into one unit.  Does anyone have any ideas on the best way to go about this so it will still carry the information correctly and show properly in a BOM?  I'm attaching some additional info.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I think I would create a symbol with Symbol Builder that looks similar to the illustration from the SICK catalog.  It is, after all, a control module that happens to function in a similar fashion to a relay, but really it is more akin to a small PLC with inputs that execute pre-programmed logic, and execute output states accordingly.  So I would treat it more as a logic module than as a relay. 


According to IEC/EN81346 I would set a tag default of K, which indicates logic circuit devices from control relays to CPUs.  Use signal arrows to bring the wires to the symbol from pages other than the page where the module will reside.
