How to Add Crimps to the Ends of Conductors


You can add the specification for the crimp to be attached to the end of each conductor. The crimp for each termination can be specified individually.

Adding a Crimp Specification with Termination Blocks

Termination blocks are special control symbols that are placed at each termination of a conductor.

There are two blocks: HSCONX.DWG and VSCONX.DWG for horizontal and vertical conductor orientation.

Termination blocks should be edited in the Global Editor.

  1. Run the Global Editor.

  2. Select the class TERMINATION.

  3. The main list in the Global Editor will show an entry for each wire or cable core (conductor) termination. This is unlike other classes, which only show entries for symbols present in the drawings.

  4. Ensure that Auto-insert Termination Blocks is ticked. When the drawings are updated, a termination block will be inserted at the point where each conductor terminates at a component. One block for each entry in the list.

  5. The crimp specification for each termination can be selected from the catalog. Click the Catalog Select button and choose the type of crimp.

  6. When the conductor reports are generated, the specification of the crimp is copied to the CRIMP_A or CRIMP_B fields of the conductor reports.

The two termination blocks, HSCONX.DWG and VSCONX.DWG, contain other attributes. In total the termination blocks can provide wire termination order, wire labels and crimp specification.
