Insert Low Voltage Device Dialog Box
Group: The active low voltage device group. The items listed in the Callout list are based upon the active low voltage device group. See the section for more information.
Callout: The low voltage device type to be inserted. The low voltage device callouts in this list are based upon the Group selection. The list of low voltage devices available within a specific low voltage device group is defined in the command.
The default values for the low voltage device are specified based upon the low voltage device type you choose.
Some of these values cannot be changed in the individual low voltage device. To use a different value, you must choose a different low voltage device type.
Other values can be overridden in the individual low voltage device. To do this, check the box next to the value you want you change. You can the specify the value that will apply to the low voltage devices you will insert on the drawing.
Override Schedule Load: Check these boxes to override the load defined in the schedule. If this box is checked, the load fields below it will be enabled and can be changed.
Elevation: The elevation of the low voltage device. See the section for more information.
Layer System: See the section for more information.
See thesection for more information about the other values in this dialog box.
Inserting the Low Voltage Device on the Drawing
To insert a low voltage device on the drawing, press the OK button. The settings you specified in the dialog box will be used tor the low voltage devices that you insert. You will be prompted to insert them on the drawing.
Specify insertion point:
If the low voltage device can be rotated, you will then be prompted for the rotation angle.
Specify rotation angle <0>:
If there are any notes included with the low voltage device, you will then be prompted to locate the notes on the drawing. See thesection for more information about inserting the notes.
Once you are finished inserting the low voltage device, you will be prompted to insert another of the same type. You may continue to insert low voltage devices, or press ENTER to end the command.
