Parallel connection in cabling using single wire

Parallel connection in cabling using single wire

PROBLEM:

  • RSD does not support using single wire throug multiple ports (i.e. parlallel connection).

 

USE CASE:

  • This type of connection is typical when dealing with systems with large currents.
  • Typical example is having a single uncoated wire with say 10 mm diameter, which is connected through several capasitors/batteries/etc ports. For each port the connection is made with screw-clamp joint, so conductor will not be cut at port.
  • Second example is a bus bar - which is made say 10x50 cross section copper bar. Then all devices are bolted to busbar without cutting the conductor.
  • (see case image below)

 

SUGGESTED SOLUTION IDEA - PRODUCT ENHANCEMENT REQUEST:

  1. New countinius conductor fibretype for RSD with caebability to have multiple ports as refrence
  2. By adding a "waypoint" feature with "flexible wire"- object to RSD one could keep current point-to-point connection definition.
    1. Additional control of routing of fibre location on shemantics enhance readability
    2. Use of "waypoint" in cabling enables/forces to route cables through certain named points in Creo. This is sometimes needes due mechanism, minimun distance requirement etc reasons.
    3. Use of "waypoint" in cabling networks to run cable throug additional ports. Yes -this would mean, that one is deliberately and creatively mixing the port & "waypoint".
