Show NEMA Rating in Equipment Schedule, Not on Drawing

Posted on January 16th, 2014. Last updated on December 14th, 2018.

When you specify a NEMA rating for an equipment connection, the value is displayed automatically on the drawing.

If you do not want the NEMA rating to be displayed on the drawing, but want to include it in the schedule, leave the NEMA Rating field blank and enter the rating into one of the Schedule Notes fields instead.

When you insert the schedule, press the Edit Title, Column Labels, and Column Order button. For the field you used, change the header for the corresponding Note column from the default value to something more indicative of the value, such as “NEMA.”

The notes are included for exactly this purpose. They allow you to schedule information that we do not have a field for. If you run out of notes and need more fields, you can use other fields in the same way — just be careful to fill in the fields properly when creating the equipment. Make sure to communicate with any other designers working on the project about how you are scheduling equipment so everyone does it the same way.
