Modifying Branch Circuit Devices

This section teaches you how to work with branch circuit devices.

Start in the FIRST FLOOR POWER floor plan.

Enable Circuit Descriptions with Design Master

With Design Master Electrical RT, circuit descriptions can be changed in several different places to give you greater control over the values displayed in the panel schedule. By default, this functionality is bypassed so you can continue to set circuit descriptions through typical Revit methods if you prefer.

To control your circuit descriptions using Design Master Electrical RT:

1.Run the Project Options command. The Options dialog box will open.

DM Electrical-> dmert-grey-c-16 Customization->Project Options

2.Set Circuit description method to Use Design Master circuit descriptions.
3.Press the OK button to close the dialog box.

Modify the Elevator Motor with Circuit Edit

1.Select the elevator motor and run the Circuit Edit command. The Circuit Edit dialog box will open, displaying the circuit to which the elevator motor is connected.

DM Electrical-> dmert-circuit-16 Circuit Edit

2.Make the following changes to the circuit:
a.Erase the Description Replacement value.
b.Set OCP Trip to Size automatically.
c.Set OCP Frame to Same as trip.
3.Press the Exit button to close the dialog box.

When using Design Master Electrical RT on existing projects, these fields are populated based upon the parameters for the device. New devices inserted in the model are shown in the Modifying a Branch Circuit Family section.

Modify the Elevator Motor with Instance Edit

1.Select the elevator motor and run the Instance Edit command. The Instance Edit dialog box will open.

DM Electrical-> dmert-instance-16 Instance Edit

2.Make the following changes to the elevator motor:
a.Set Circuit Description to Set circuit description in instance and, for the Custom Circuit Description, enter Elev Motor.
b.Set OCP Trip to 100.
c.Set Conductor to Size based upon breaker.
3.Press the OK button to close the dialog box.
4.Select the elevator motor and run the Circuit Edit command to see how the values change.
