If you are a user of AutoCAD Electrical I am sure you are well aware of installation and location codes. If not a brief example is the ability to apply extra information to a schematic component to be used as a filter when generating reports, this is the most common example.
When we think about our Panel components we have two extra options available and that is the ability to add mount and group codes to our footprint data when working with panel layouts. They do not allow us to use them as a filter when generating reports for our panels but they do allow us to be use them as fields of information to be reported on when running a panel report for components inside of AutoCAD Electrical.
My example descriptions for each:
Mount – maybe a more defined location of a specific component like Back Plate, Left Side, Upper or Lower inside of a panel or control box.
Group – I think of this like being part of an assembly or kit inside of a design. Could be part of sequence of installation.
Again these are just my ideas please use as you will. Take a look at the short video below.
Let’s take a look!!!
