In past versions of AutoCAD Electrical your wire types where based on a per drawing basis which hasn’t changed but there was no easy way of reusing that information across multiple drawings or even a single drawing without manually going through and adding the wire types you wanted to see that may beyond the wire types you have defined within your template file.  AutoCAD Electrical 2011 saves you time and helps to ensure consistent standards across projects by enabling you to easily reuse frequently specified wire types. You can now import wire types from an existing drawing or template into another drawing.  Using the project wide utility you can import wire types to your project set of drawings.

Electrical – Point to Point Wiring Basics Part 1

In todays post I will be covering some of the basics of Point to Point wiring. This will include:

  • Adding and working with individuals wires
  • Using scoot to place wires
  • Different wire style selections on the fly
  • Options when wires cross one another

Next week I will look at adding in a splice and also working with the multiple wire bus command.

Defining and Editing Wire Connection Sequences

You can predefine a wire network’s connection sequence. This sequence is taken into account by the AutoCAD Electrical wire and cable from/to reporting and wire connection annotation that is merged from the schematics to panel layout footprint symbols. When creating the wiring information for your panel, you may want to define the wire connection
sequence more precisely to make the panel wiring more organized and more efficient.
You can specify the wire connection sequence in two ways: by hard-wiring the schematic drawing or by defining the wire connection sequence. Today we will take a look at defining the wire connection sequence.

The Define Wire Sequence command embeds the wire connection sequence that you define on the wire network with xdata, so you can use standard ladder style design tools and wire junctions. Utilities are provided to display the wire connection sequence on the screen with temporary graphics.

3 Phase Motor Auto Connection

Something new in Autocad Electrical 2009. Connecting the 3-phase wiring to the motor symbol is now automatic. When you insert your motor symbol and your 3-phase wiring is already present, place your symbol on or near the wires and the wires are angled and trimmed to meet the motor symbol
