#1 Questions about terminal strip numbering (when stacked) and bridging

Hello guys!

I have this set of terminals that parts of a two level terminal strip X2. How can I bridge them in a way that shows up in the "Bdg" column on the table? I've read a tutorial on this site about bridging but I couldn't use the function shown on it. On the diagram side I created a vertical line object to symbolize the bridging, but I don't know if there is a different in-built way to make this happen on the diagram and the table too.

Also, is there a way to automatically number the terminals in a different way when using the stack feature? For example, to keep using numerical order instead of adding "(T)", "(B)", or "(M)". I had to change them manually to look the way they are in the picture. Or alternatively, a way to show the numbering I entered manually in the table instead of the "(T)" and "(B)" representation?

Thanks in advance.

Add bridge

Thanks for posting on the forum.

To bridge the stacked terminals, in the table view, select all the junctions; X2-1 (T), X2-1 (B), X2-2 (T), etc. then go to the Terminal Strip Tools tab and select Add bridge.

On the graphical side I created a line object to symbolize the bridging, but I don't know if there is a different in-built way to make this happen on the diagram and the table too.
Unfortunately, there is no feature to add bridges to the table view and the schematics at the same time.

Unfortunately not. When using stacked terminals, you will always get T, M, B.

Please let us know if this helps.

It works like a charm!

My new issue now is to show the bridged terminals on the table that is exported to a sheet. Like showing the "Bdg" column as is in the figure below

How about using terminal strip layout instead?

Unfortunately that's not possible. How about using terminal strip layout view instead? That can show all the information (and more) than the list view.

Please let us know if that helps.
