    Some customers require the ability to number each physical wire rather than each equipotential. The following describes how this is achieved.

    There are some changes to the Project Parameters that need to be done in order to allow AutoCAD Electrical to adopt a wire numbering convention on a per physical wire basis rather than the norm of a per equipotential basis. 

    To change the setup of the project, right click over the active project and select Properties

    Select Wire Numbers tab

    Create a new drawing copying the project settings when prompted

    Normally a 3 device circuit would be drawn with “T” connections but this does not show how the 3 devices are actually wired and therefore connected (typical style).

    Therefore, in order to get unique numbering on each physical wire, we need to draw the wire directly out of the connecting pin (new style)
