How to Specify Which Symbols are Classified as Coils


You can specify which symbols Elecdes should classify as coils when cross-referencing relays without catalog information.


  1. Go to the Symbols tab page.

  2. The page contains a list of symbols that are classified as coils, on the right: Coil Symbols.

    The list will be enabled only when the "coil" = Subcomp 0 tick box on the Options tab page is ticked.

    • You can add and remove symbols from this list by using the three buttons provided.

    • To add a symbol to the list, type in the name of the symbol without the first two characters and without the DWG extension and click the Add button.

    • An alternative way to add a symbol to the list is to select the symbol file. Click the Browse button and pick the symbol you want. This is the recommended method as it removes the first two characters for you automatically.

    • To remove a symbol from the list, select it and click the Remove button.
