Circuiting and Homeruns with Junction Boxes

Tuesday, July 7th, 2020

Q: How do I circuit and draw a homerun for a junction box that isn’t connected to other devices?

A: Junction boxes inserted on the drawing using the Insert Junction Box command cannot be circuited independently. More information about the intended usage of this device type is available on the Junction Boxes page of the Design Master Electrical user manual.

To model a junction box that you can connect to a panel and draw a homerun from, there are two methods you can use:

  • Define a receptacle as a junction box using the dm_elec-recProjectSchedule Receptacle Project Schedule command. Press the Select Block button and select the Junction Box block. Insert and circuit the device the same way you would a receptacle.
  • Define an equipment connection as a junction box using the Create Equipment command. In the Disconnect section, set Type to Junction Box. Insert and circuit the device the same way you would an equipment connection.
