Terminal/Wire number problem

75 Views, 2 Replies

How do I keep wire numbers on each side of a terminal to remain the same after inserting a terminal? Typically, a wire being connected to a terminal strip carries the same wire number as the terminal block.
Thanks

It's rather easy. The last part of each wirecut attribute has the same value. Example: The left wirecut attribute is X4TERM01 and the right atrribute is X1TERM01. And if you want top and bottom wirecut points, just be sure that thay have the same number in the last part. After you edit your terminal symbol as above, the wire numbers will "pass through" the terminal as remain the same.

At a very basic level, don't use the terminal blocks on the far right side on the menu, those cause the wire number to change.
