Wire termination type management

The Wire termination types are used to define how the cable cores or the wires are connected on the components. They are grouped in a specific Management dialog box in which you can find the main used wire terminations. You can add or edit your own wire terminations.


The Wire termination types are managed on the components (connection points of the symbols) and on the manufacturer parts (terminals) et have specific attributes to propagate their data. A dedicated report allows you to synthesize all the Wire terminal types used in the electrical project.
