Complete Design of Cables and Harnesses
The project starts with the insertion of a new sheet. The initial definitions of sheet characteristics are specified below:
- "Name" = 41;
- "Higher level Assignment" = A1
- "Location" = Tank1
To add a new sheet, right-click on any sheet that already exists in the project and click on "New Sheet".
Adding a new sheet
A new window will open in which you can configure the above mentioned options.
Possible definitions for a new sheet
Then the project's "Devices" window is called up. And the cabling "–W3=A1+Tank1" will be used for the new cable layout shown.
Thus, by right-clicking on the name and "Place New Device View", a new device view is added to the sheet.
Adding a new device view
This process will be performed three times, each with a different view of the complete documentation.
At first glance, the option "HTS-HE-4-P010SV" and "Place as: complete device" will be used. After adding the device to the sheet, the window for defining the second view is automatically displayed, in which the option "HTS-HE-4-S010SV" is selected. In this addition, the device is rotated with the "Y" key on the keyboard.
This same process is repeated for the "W_ST"/"W_BU" and "TABWIRE3"/"TABWIRE3" views, with the y-axis rotation of the second view.

Documentation of Segments
Then the connections are added at first glance with the "C" key on the keyboard. Segment size is set to 2mm.
Segment Size Adjustment
In the second view, the "Autoconnect Horizontal" option is used for the automatic connection of segments.
Automatic horizontal connection option
Finally, some descriptions are added at first and second sight.
In the "Misc" table in the project database, the item "CabAndCoreName_hori" is added to the segment of the first view representation.
Connections Documentation (Left) and Item Added to Segment (Right) for First View
By double clicking on the option "Insert template Symbol (\)" the specifications were added to the second view of the set of pins.
