Description: The description field for one-line device diagram blocks is a little different from the description field of other blocks. There are certain block descriptions that are required for one-line diagram blocks. The blocks associated with these descriptions are used when drawing certain elements of the one-line diagram. The required block descriptions have a gray background. The description for these blocks cannot be changed, but all of the other settings can be.
The following list describes where these required blocks are used.
Image Name: This is the name of the file containing the image to display for this block. Double-click on the row and select Browse to browse for the file you wish to use for any given block. If the image name is left blank, it assumes that a slide with the same name as the block should be used as the image.
One-Line Device: This pulldown controls whether the block is available to be used for one-line devices in the one-line diagram. If it is set to Yes, it will be available to be used as a block for one-line devices. If it set to No, it will not be available to be used as a block for one-line devices.
It can also be set to a specific type of one-line device. If it is, it will be available to be used as a block for one-line devices. It will also be the default block for the type of device selected. This allows you to control the default block that is chosen when creating your one-line diagram. If a specific one-line device type is not assigned a default block, the special Panel Block with Bus or Panel Block is used instead (depending upon the setting of the option).
Branch Circuit Device: The check box controls whether this block is included as an option when inserting a branch circuit device in the one-line diagram. If it is set to Yes, it will be available to be used as a block for branch circuit devices. If it set to No, it will not be available to be used as a block for branch circuit devices.
If it is set to Equipment, it will be used as the default block when inserting an equipment connection on the one-line diagram.
Feeder Block: Whether or not this block can be used as part of a feeder. If checked, this block will be allowed as an OCP device, a block at the start of a feeder, or a block at the end of a feeder.
