Doubled (or Tripled!) Loads in Panels

Friday, August 20th, 2010

Problem: The loads on your panel have been doubled (or tripled or more).

Cause: Typically, this is the result of making copies of a drawing. When a drawing is copied, copies of all of the devices are created as well. These new devices are connected to the same circuits as the original devices.

Solution: If you want to keep the extra drawing, you need to either erase the devices if you do not need them, or connect them to a different circuit.

If you do not need the extra drawing, delete the drawing in Windows Explorer, then use the “DM Electrical->Utilities->Delete Extra Devices from Database” command to remove the devices from the database that were previously on the drawing.
