Low Voltage Devices Project Groups

This section describes how to create and modify low voltage device groups in your project. Multiple groups for different types of low voltage devices can be created in your project.

To change settings for low voltage devices project groups, go to

DM Electrical->Low Voltage Devices->Low Voltage Device Project Schedule

The current group is listed at the top of the dialog box. Press the Select Group button to create and modify low voltage device groups.

Low Voltage Device Project Schedule Groups Dialog Box

Low Voltage Devices--Low Voltage Device Project Schedule Groups Dialog Box

See the Common Groups Dialog Box Features section for more information about the New, Copy, Delete, Rename, Delete All Low Voltage Devices in Group, and Import Group from Master Schedule buttons on this dialog box.

Edit Settings: Press this button to edit the settings for the currently selected low voltage device group. The Edit Group Settings dialog box will appear.

Fixed Demand Factor: The demand factor for devices in the low voltage group is fixed. It is the same for all devices in the group.

Variable Demand Factor: The demand factor for devices in the low voltage group is variable. It can be different for each device in the group. The demand factor is input directly as a calculated load.

Variable Calculated Load: The demand factor for devices in the low voltage group is variable. It can be different for each device in the group. The demand factor is input as multiplier of the connected load.

Demand Factor: The demand factor for all devices in the group. This field is enabled if Fixed Demand Factor is selected.

Show Conduit Sizes on Homeruns: Whether or not conduit sizes are shown on homeruns on the drawing for devices in the group.

Show Subscripts on Symbols: This field is not currently used.
