Linking Accessories

More Info

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.

This article will teach you how to link accessories to any component.

When you are working on a project, you might often find yourself in need of more contacts in a contactor than reality allows. In real life, you would add an auxiliary contact block to make up to the lacking contacts. In G-Electrical, you will do the exactly same thing.

Linking accessories…

1. Open the “Custom (Project)” palette;
2. Go to Components and locate K1-CONTATOR TRIP. A 50-30-11(1NA+1NF), 230Vca;
3. Right-click on it;
4. Select the option “Link accessories”;
5. In the displayed window, under Library, select the component in CONTATORES > ABB > CONTATOS AUXILIARES > CA 6(LATERAL) > PARAF. > BLOCO DE CONTATO AUX. CA 6-11E (1NA+1NF);
6. Double-click on the accessory;

Warning

Be careful to separate different contact terminals using “,” (coma) and to not repeat their connections.

Go back to the “Custom” palette. You will notice that inside the component K1 is a new folder called Accessories, which includes the indication of the linked contact block. Inside the “Contact” folder, two new contacts will be displayed, both with a slightly different symbology, indicating they came from an accessory.
