Circuiting and Homeruns with Junction Boxes

Posted on July 7th, 2020. Last updated on June 13th, 2023.

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.

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 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.
