Matings are created between two endpoints from the same or different Harness, Devices, or Subsystems.
Once a mating is created, it will electrically connect all appropriate endpoints and propagate the signals starting from a Device, through all Harness Connections, and to other Devices. The resulting electrical connection is described as a Net.
Types of Matings
The table below shows the types of Matings that are allowed between different endpoints.
|Endpoint Type||Mates with|
|Loose Wire End||Other Loose Wire Ends or Terminal Points|
|Quick Connect Terminal||Other Quick Connect Terminals or Terminal Points|
|Ring Terminal||Terminal Points|
|Spade Terminal||Terminal Points|
|Terminal Point||Ferrules, Loose Wire Ends, Quick Connect Terminals, Ring Terminals, or Spade Terminals|
Creating a Mating
To create a mating, you can simply drag and drop one endpoint on top of a second endpoint.
Removing a Mating
To unmate two endpoints, simply right click on the mating, and select "Unmate".
