Does it matter how i connect the terminal, internal or external?  I am having problem to make a terminalplan with the correct desitnation, I have tried to changed the desitnation in Terminal Strip Editor, but it makes no different. Shall I do any thing else?

Setting the Internal and External connections of the terminal will allow the TSE to have the correct wire connections from the start, rather than changing them one by one when doing the layout. I usually do this just before I do the layout as I can just go through and do all the terminals at once on the one runthrough of the command rather than insert the terminal, exit, set internal/external, insert terminal and so on.


It also pays to do a full rebuild of the project first before doing so, set the internal/external connections and then also setting any special wiring sequences before doing the TSE.

I too have a concern about that too. Below(also refer to the attachment if it is not clear) are two wire connections and their appropriate terminal strip representation. I think it is wrong but need another clarification. Please...thx
