Topic: Adding connection to existing wire

Hello,

when I insert new connection onto already existing wire (splice for example), it won't delete old wire, so I'm left with three wires. Only solution I found, is to delete old wire first and then insert connection. Can I change this behavior? Thank you

Hi,

splice like terminal element keep equipotential wire and extend your PE wire.

Btw, enable use one text per folio potential .

Re: Adding connection to existing wire

Hi, so you saying it's normal behaviour?


This is what I mean, if I add splice onto existing wire, wire is still there and I if try to move splice you can see that there are three wires, which is incorrect:

Re: Adding connection to existing wire

Yes is normal, but you use the wrong element in this configuration :

Re: Adding connection to existing wire

It should be interesting when you put element over existing wire to insert automatically element on wire (in line) ...

Re: Adding connection to existing wire

What do you mean by wrong element? I can't remove terminal from splice, I can remove wire or whole splice.

#galexis: Yes that's what I mean.

So right way to do it, is deleting the the existing wire fire and then inserting splice? But then I'm loosing wire's text..

Re: Adding connection to existing wire

Is easy to edit an element.
The two horizontal terminals in your splice create a new wire in your fisrt wire, because automatic conductor connect the spline when you align to report elements.

Re: Adding connection to existing wire

Sorry, I don't understand you. I know that splice create new wire, my problem is, that if I insert splice onto already existing wire, I have to delete that old wire.

Re: Adding connection to existing wire

So far, it has never bothered anyone for ~13 years under QET to superimpose the wires ... in the case of the common parts of the coils, there are many overlapping wires to form one . ;-)

QET does not work like Eplan, example :

Re: Adding connection to existing wire

Nice improvement about wires when a part is removed.
Is there a way to trig that handling automatically -  so we can say that all wires of a net is to connect to a by user selected terminal?

That would make it easier to then insert a split or other part in series with another part (where there then is not multiple but only a single wire)

I think no, you need to select manually a selected area for connect wires.

Thanks for all your answers

Re: Adding connection to existing wire

Hi...i have a small query here. How you go about adding a #12 or #14 wire to an existing splice in a JB, should i redo the splice with the new wire or simply add it into the pre twisted splice and let the Wire nut twist it together.
