Modify Circuit Label

The Modify Circuit Label command is used to insert, modify, or remove the circuit label on devices in the drawing. Changing the label does not affect what the device is connected to. It only changes how the label is displayed on the drawing.

To modify the circuit label on a device, go to

DM Electrical->Circuiting and Homeruns->Modify Circuit Label

Modify Circuit Label Dialog Box

Circuiting and Homeruns--Modify Circuit Label dialog box

Select the appearance you would like for the circuit labels of the devices you will select.

Show Circuit Label with Panel and Circuit Number (P-1): The circuit label will include the one-line device callout and the circuit number, separated by a dash. This label is the default label that is inserted when devices are first connected to a circuit.

Show Circuit Label with Only the Circuit Number (1): The circuit label will include only the circuit number. The one-line device callout is not shown.

Hide Circuit Label: No circuit label is shown on the device.

Select the desired option, and then press OK.

You will be prompted to identify which devices on the drawing are to have the new type of label.

Select objects:

The circuit labels on the selected objects will be updated to match the chosen setting. If the device is not connected to a circuit, no label will be displayed.
