As we know, QC allow us to generate many kinds of reports and lists. This reports will be based on each piece of info you added to the project until now. That’s why it’s so important to keep consistency throughout each step of development. In this article we’ll learn how to generate a list of terminals.

More info

Alternatively, learn how to generate lists of: labels, wires, cables and bill of materials.

By default, QC works with three types of terminal lists that can be generated in the project.

Which are the list of terminals styles?
List of terminals: Grid

This list will inform the kind of terminal used, which will tell us the strip identification and terminal number, as well as indicate the components linked to the terminals. In this case, QC informs the name/terminal of the component and it’s position

Terminal Strip: Grid

The terminal strip grid gives you the strip identification and terminal number in a more visual way, and also indicates the components linked to the terminals.
