Meters for One-Line Diagram Users

Monday, November 30th, 2015

 

Prior to Design Master Electrical 8.4, meters had to be inserted on the one-line diagram manually using standard AutoCAD commands. Meters can now be inserted as an integrated part of the one-line diagram.

Use the dm_elec-oneLine-insertMeter Insert Meter command to insert a meter on the one-line diagram. Meters can be inserted on the bus of a panel or on a feeder.

Use grips to change the location of the meter. It will stay connected to the bus or the feeder no matter where you move it.

Use the dm_elec-oneLine-removeMeter Remove Meter command to remove a meter.

Use the dm_elec-old-changeLayerSystem Change Layer System command to change the layer of the meter. If the panel or feeder has a meter on it, you will be asked for the new layer system of the panel or feeder and the new layer system of the meter.

The default customization offers a few options for the meter graphics. You can add more using the Create One-Line Diagram Block commands.

Ribbon: DME: Customization->Block Creation->Create One-Line Diagram Block from …
