Fuse List - Terminal Block Column

#1 Fuse List - Terminal Block Column

I have two part request.  Each part is related to a fuse as an accessory on a terminal block.

1)  When looking at the fuse list as a table, the fused terminal block shows up on the left side of the table (see first clip).  In the sheet posted fuse list table (list block on a sheet - see second clip) it does not.  Is there a way to include the terminal block in the list block on a sheet.  Possibly a query cell definition? 

2)  On my graphical block for a fused terminal, is there a way to show the Tag attribute for the fuse accessory on the terminal block.  See third clip.  We would normally put the Tag (Like F1, F2,..) in the right hand square.  We could put it anywhere, but we want to show the fuse number tag on the drawing so the end user could look at the fused terminal, determine which fuse it is, and then go to the fuse list table posted on another sheet.

Thanks.

We hope this helps

Thanks for posting on the forum.

1) Possibly a query cell definition? 
Exactly. Open the Location class, and a query cell to the Fuse list. The query will be simply:

DisplayedLabelV2

2) On my graphical block for a fused terminal, is there a way to show the Tag attribute for the fuse accessory on the terminal block. 
Yes. Add a text with the query below, and link the text to the symbol.

<r:Parent.WorkObject.Parent.GetWorkObjects(Class:Fuse).Tag>

Please let us know if this helps.

Item 2 appears to work.

Item 1 does not show any additional column in the query results.  See clip on the query cell, is this correct?

You need to refresh the fuse list and unhide the column

Great. Thanks for letting us know.

It's correct. We forgot to mention that after adding a new query cell, you will need to refresh the location fuse list that you currently have open in the project by closing and re-opening that fuse list.
Then, the column will be there, though you will need to unhide it (see this tutorial at 0:40).

Please let us know if this helps.

Fuse Tag

Jeff, thanks for the help.  The column now shows up as you suggested.

I have a follow-up question regarding the fuses.  

I noticed that if I assign a part number to the fuse using the catalogue, then the Tag (usually something like F1, F2,...) goes away and I have to put it back in again.  Is there a way to prevent this.  I see this being an issue if someone changes the size of the fuse by picking a different catalogue part and doesn't notice that the Tag was overwritten with a blank.

Is this behaviour to be expected for all accessories?

Thanks.

You're welcome

No, that is not normal behaviour. We'll investigate this. We'll get back to you shortly.

This should help

Please try this:

  1. Go to the Catalogue Tools tab and select Open Catalogue Class
  2. Choose the Fuse class and click OK
  3. Go to the Create/Add tab and select Add setting
  4. Choose ID Property and click OK
  5. For the ID Property, using the drop-down menu, choose Tag

That's it. The Tag property shouldn't change when you assign a different part number to the fuse anymore.

Perfect

Thanks for the solution.  Very nice.

You're welcome
