    pic3.pngWhen creating a new symbol within elecworks™, you can define the circuit type and the transmission type. The Information transmission has four options which are detailed below:

    Disconnectable

    A disconnectable circuit is a circuit where the equipotential is broken between 2 connection points of the same circuit thus meaning a change in equipotential value e.g. a switch.

    Passing

    A passing circuit is a circuit where the equipotential is continued between 2 connection points of the same circuit thus meaning the equipotential value is continued e.g. a feed-through terminal.

    Hyper passing

    A hyper passing circuit is a circuit where you wish to have the same equipotential wire number on 2 or more different circuits using components that are linked, have an identical circuit and connection point data e.g. a busbar distribution block split into segments.

    Hyper hyper passing

    A hyper hyper passing circuit is a circuit that allows you to connect 2 symbols with the same connection point details and it will continue the equipotential between these points. The connection points however are not detailed in connection reports as they are transparent as if the wire is directly connected between the 2 connected end components e.g. a screen.pic5.png
