Devices are electrical elements that have connectors, signals, and an electrical pin mapping or Interface Control Document (ICD). They are used in Systems to create a complete electrical schematic in conjunction with Harnesses.

Example Device

Device Properties

  • Part Number, Manufacturer, Description
  • Color (can be overriden in Systems)
  • Connectors (in Design Assembly)
  • Electrical Interface (mapping Signals to Connectors)

Note, you can also import the Device Electrical Interface using the 'Import ICD' button.

Usage in Systems

When creating a complete electrical schematic, you can add Devices to a System alongside your Harnesses. When combined, you can then create Matings between your connectors and see Signal Nets.
