    Within AutoCAD Electrical, you can create and modify PLC modules within the PLC Database File Editor. The PLC selection list uses an expandable and collapsible tree structure for the PLC categories. These PLC categories are: Manufacturer, Series, Type and Part Number. The tree structure supports right-click controls for copying, renaming, deleting and creating PLC data and shows the terminal/connection attribute information in the lower half of the dialogue.
