Wire cabling order

There are two types of equipotentials:

  • The simple equipotentials. These connect only two components.

  • The complex equipotentials. These connect three or more components.

The wiring order lets you define how these components are connected.

Only complex equipotentials are affected by the cabling order.

It allows you to optimize the wire and cable lengths and to orient the cabling order (From/To), making it easier to read in the list of connections and list of cables.


There are two different types of cabling order: the Automatic cabling order (automatically generated by SOLIDWORKS Electrical) and the Manual cabling order (manually generated by the user).
