Circuiting Shunt Trip Breakers

Wednesday, May 15th, 2019

Q: Some of the breakers in my project have shunt trips. How can I show this on my panel schedule?

A: Use the Circuiting command to create a circuit with no breaker or load that represents the shunt trip.

Ribbon: DM Electrical->Circuiting and Homeruns-> dm_elec-circuit Circuiting

Pulldown Menu: DM Electrical->Circuiting and Homeruns->Circuiting

  1. In the Circuiting dialog box, select the next circuit down from your breaker. If the selected circuit is not a space/spare, press the Insert Circuit button to insert a space/spare and move the other loads down the panel.
  2. Set Breaker Size to None.
  3. In the Description field, enter a description for the shunt trip, such as “SHUNT TRIP”.

The shunt trip will be shown on your panel schedule.

The Circuiting Command

This training video teaches you how to use the Circuiting command in Design Master Electrical.


Setting the Phase of Single-Phase Loads on Three-Phase Switchboards

For single-phase loads, you can specify the phase using the Starting Phase setting in the Circuiting dialog box.


Circuit Loop and Homerun Layers

You can change the layer circuit loops and homeruns are inserted on using the Circuiting command. You can also set a default layer in the project customization options.


Three-Phase Lighting Circuits

2-phase light fixtures can be connected to a 3-phase circuit using the Circuiting command.


Circuiting and Homeruns with Junction Boxes

You cannot circuit the junction box device type, but you can model a different device type after a junction box and circuit that.
