Family Settings

The settings for the family. The values set in this top grid are used unless they are overridden by settings in the bottom Type Settings grid.

Device Type: The type of electrical device. Each type has different values that can be set. Displayed here are the settings for Distribution equipment: Panel.

Upstream Description Prefix: A prefix added to the start of the circuit description in the upstream equipment. The default description is the name of the family instance. This value allows you to add text that will appear before the name of the family instance.

Upstream Description Suffix: A suffix added to the start of the circuit description in the upstream equipment. The default description is the name of the family instance. This value allows you to add text that will appear after the name of the family instance.

Neutral: Sets the size of the neutral wire in the feeder.

Same as phase: The neutral wire will be the same size as the phase wires.
Double phase: The neutral wire will be twice the size of the phase wires. This is accomplished by using two neutral wires.
None: No neutral wire will be included in the feeder.
Custom: The neutral wire will be set to the value you specify. The value you enter should exactly match a Wire Size value set in the Wire Sizes command in your project.

Ground: Sets the size of the ground wire in the feeder.

Size automatically: The ground wire is sized based upon  the Upstream OCP setting. If the electrical equipment is fed from a transformer, the Service Ground setting for the conductor ampacity is used. Otherwise, the Equipment Ground setting for the conductor ampacity is used.
NEC 250.122 Equipment: The ground wire is sized based upon the Equipment Ground setting for the conductor ampacity.
NEC 250.102 Service: The ground wire is sized based upon the Service Ground setting for the conductor ampacity.
None: No ground wire is included in the feeder.
Custom: The ground wire will be set to the value you specify. The value you enter should exactly match a Wire Size value set in the Wire Sizes command in your project.

IG Conductor: Whether the feeder includes an isolated ground.

Yes: An isolated ground will be included in the feeder.
No: An isolated ground will not be included in the feeder.

Mains / Bus Amps: The size of the bus.

Specific ampacity: The mains value is set to the specific size chosen from the list.
Custom: Enter a custom mains value in the lower field.

Main Disconnect Type: The type of disconnect for the device. The graphics on the panel bus in the one-line diagram are controlled by this field.

Main Lugs Only: The bus bar on the one-line diagram does not have a disconnect in it.
Breaker: The bus bar on the one-line diagram includes a breaker graphic.
Fused Switch: The bus bar on the one-line diagram includes a fused switch graphic.

Main Disconnect Trip: The trip rating of the main disconnect breaker or fused switch.

Same as bus amps: The trip rating is the same as the Bus Amps value.
Custom: The trip rating is set to the specific size chosen from the list.

Main Disconnect Frame: The frame size of the main disconnect breaker or fused switch.

Same as bus amps: The frame size is the same as the Bus Amps value.
Custom: The frame size is set to the specific size chosen from the list.

Type Settings

The settings for specific types in the family. Values set here override the values set in the top Family Settings grid.

Override Family Bus Amps: Whether or not to override the Bus Amps value in the Family Settings grid for this family type.

Override Family Values: Whether or not to override the settings in the Family Settings grid for this family type.
