Allows you to set information used for sizing branch circuits. Opens the following dialog box:
The wire size values that are calculated are stored in shared parameters on the circuits. These shared parameters can be displayed in your panel schedule in addition to or instead of the various built-in Revit parameters. See thesection for more information.
Electrical Equipment Tree: The tree on the left side of the dialog box lists all of the electrical equipment in your project. The equipment is organized based upon the connections in the model.
Panel Edit: Press this button to close this dialog box and run the command. The currently selected electrical equipment will be selected in the Panel Edit dialog box.
Circuit Lists: The grids in the middle list all of the circuits on the currently selected electrical equipment. If the electrical equipment is a panel with odd and even sides, the odd circuits are listed on the left and the even circuits are listed on the right. Otherwise, all of the circuits are listed on the left and the grid on the right will be blank.
Circuit Details: Information about the circuit that is selected is displayed in this grid.
When a feeder to a downstream piece of electrical equipment is selected, basic information about the feeder is displayed. To make changes, you need to go to the Panel Edit command. Select the electrical equipment connected to the circuit and make changes in the Feeder Settings section.
When a space is selected that has nothing connected to it, you will not be able to make any changes.
When a branch circuit is selected, make changes to the circuit using the fields listed below.
Description Prefix: Text that will be added to the front of the circuit description.
Description Suffix: Text that will be added to the end of the circuit description. It will be added before the room names if they are included.
Description Replacement: Text that will completely replace the circuit description. The circuit description on the device and the description prefix and description suffix text on the circuit will not be used.
Include Room Name in Description: Whether or not the rooms that are served by the circuit are included in the description.
Breaker Trip Size: Sets the size of the breaker for the branch circuit. Used to set the Rating value of the branch circuit.
Breaker Frame Size: Sets the size of the frame for the branch circuit. Used to set the Frame value of the branch circuit.
Conductor Amps: Sets the size of the conductors.
Neutral Size: Sets the size of the neutral wire.
Ground Size: Sets the size of the ground wire.
Conduit Size: Sets the size of the conduit.
Conduit Fill: The conduit fill percentage for the branch circuit wire.
Wire Callout: The callout for the branch circuit listing all of the chosen wire sizes.
Circuit Length: The average distance from the electrical equipment to the devices on the branch circuit.
Building Angle: The orientation of the building used when Circuit Length is set to Right angles.
Voltage Drop: The voltage drop on the branch circuit. The calculated value is based upon the load on the circuit, the wire size, and the circuit length. The calculation assumes the whole load is located at a distance equal to the circuit length away from the electrical equipment.
