One-Line Diagrams: Meters

Friday, December 11th, 2015

<– Return to How to Use One-Line Diagrams


 

Meters are inserted as drafting elements on the one-line diagram. They are not automatically inserted based upon the model; you must insert them manually.

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.

A few options for the meter graphics are included in the default customization. You can add more using the Create One-Line Diagram Block commands.
