To be able to approach every subject under Electrical Schematics, such as inserting wires, components, contacts of a component, linking accessories, and others, in a neater way, we created a project to control the direct start of an engine.
To initiate your strength part, you will need 4 power wires (triple-phase and protection). However, as you’ve read in the previous article, you are limited to insert at most three wires at a time. Read on for instructions on how to avoid that.
1. In the “Wires” palette, locate the BLACK 4mm² wire;
2. Double-click on it;
3. Indicate the wire’s initial point on quadrant A1;
4. Define its orientation;
5. It’s final point should be on A9;
6. Press Enter on your keyboard;
Note that after you define the wire segment’s position, the command window will appear requesting the number of paths. In this option, you may enter the number of wires you wish. Other paths will be parallel to the first, and you can define the distance between them.
7. Type in the value “7”;
8. Press Enter on your keyboard;
All 4 wires will be shown, but you still have to define the spacing between them. As you will be working with bi- and tripolar components, you need to put in a standard distance of 7.5 between them.
9. Type in 7.5;
10. Press Enter on your keyboard;
Your next step is to indicate the side on which to put the wires, as you could choose both above and below the resistance wire. With a click of the mouse, you can choose the insertion position you desire.
11. Indicate the desired wire positioning.
Now all 4 wires will have been added. Now you will have to insert another 4 wires, this time vertically, as shown in the image below.
In the image, you can see that all 4 new wires are connected to the same horizontal wire, which is not right.
1. Select the second inserted wire. You will see that in its upper extremity there is a blue square, exactly at its initial point.
2. Click on the blue square.
3. Drag it to the point where you want it to be. In this case, to the second horizontal wire;
4. Do the same thing for the other wires;
5. In the component palette, type MS325-25 into the search field;
6. Select the DISJ. MOTOR MS325 – 25 component;
7. Insert said component onto the wires, as shown below;
8. Go to the “Custom” palette;
9. Locate the K1 component;
10. Open the “Contact” folder;
11. Insert “force contact” underneath the circuit breaker.
