Sometimes when space is at a premium within a drawing, it may be useful to minimise multiple wires into one multi core representation.
This often is referred to as fanning in and fanning out of your wires. An example circuit is shown below:The line connecting the two groups of wires up is effectively a “dumb” line as the intelligence is within the source and destination fans. The two are linked similar to a coil and contact by the tag association.
The video above shows how easily this is achieved. If wires cross and are not in the same order, then multiple fans would be required. The wire from/to list will report the connections as if they were a continuation ensuring consistency of information throughout.
