Working with Sequential Feeder IDs

Thursday, July 25th, 2019

Unlike other feeder ID formats, which are generated based upon various properties of the feeder, sequential feeder IDs are generated simply as a series of numbers ordered by ampacity and when they are generated. You can use the DM Electrical feeder schedule to see which feeders correspond to each ID.

As you work on your design, new feeder IDs are added to the end of the sequence. For example, if you draft 100A, 200A, and 150A feeders all at once (labeled “1”, “3”, and “2”, respectively), then add a 60A feeder later, it will be labeled “4”. The IDs for the existing feeders will not change.

Once your initial design is ready for publishing, we recommend deleting and redefining all of your feeder IDs so they will be nicely ordered. Using the example above, the 60A feeder ID will change to “1”, the 100A to “2”, and so on.

When preparing to publish revisions, we recommend not deleting all of the feeder IDs. This will cause the IDs for your original feeders to change as well. Instead, only delete those added during revisions; this ensures the new set of feeder IDs will be in order without disrupting the original set of feeder IDs. For example, if your initial design has feeder IDs 1-15, only delete feeder IDs 16 and up.
