How do I set up a 4 pole relay that I can add a 4 pole aux contact block to so that the contact count and pin numbers work correctly?

krollenhagen This can easily be accomplished through the use of MULTIPLE BOM. When you select the catalog entry for your initial relay, you would have a pinlist assigned saying that it could have "blank" number of contacts. When the need arises for additional contacts, you would go back to the coil, and select MULTIPLE BOM, and select a catalog entry for the AUX CONTACT block. This entry would also have a pinlist assigned to it and when selected using the MULTIPLE BOM, AutoCAD Electrical will adjust the pinlist and number of contacts allowed on that coil accordingly. This works very nicely and I think it will be exactly what you are looking for. Good Luck~! -- Regards, Jared Bunch Technical Support Specialist Autodesk, Inc "krollenhagen" wrote in message news:25319645.1074967807555.JavaMail.jive@jiveforum2.autodesk.com... > How do I set up a 4 pole relay that I can add a 4 pole aux contact block to so that the contact count and pin numbers work correctly?
