Topic: How to split device (not relay or terminals) to few parts?

I have to split device (for example PLC) to few parts, used in a different folios. In the part list and on panel drawing it would be present as one device.
Thank you in advance.

Hello Victor_p,

Try to create a component as a master, for example the auxiliary power supply.
Create the separate parts as a slave and connect.

In the part list, only the master appears.

@ Victor_p

it would be better to use the "folio referencing" function (as used in the cross-ref arrows to follow a conductor on another page) as to use the master/slave function, which is not really appropriated to make what you want.

You can use those elements (see below on the picture) in the collection as template for your new plc symbols. Those BWO symbols were drawn to make a plc overview page. For each channel you have to insert the element "Overview (cross reference)".

How to use this referencing? Did you make a video about it?
