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;


7. Press “Apply”.

A window will be displayed indicating the contact names. You may click “Ok” or, if you rather to, change the contact names as shown below:



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.
