Modifying the view of a Relay

We’ll start with a basic component, the Relay. In this instance, both the shape and orientation of the component are altered. Typically, a basic relay comprises a coil and an SPDT switch. However, in this example, we are adjusting the positions of the coil and the switch. The desired view is depicted below, and the following steps outline how to transition from the current view to the desired configuration.

Modifying the view of a Relay

Step1: Select the component from the pick devices tab.


Step2: Place the component on the worksheet. Right-Click the component and then select the ‘Decompose’ option from the Right-Click Menu.


Now, the individual segments or parts of the component get decomposed. So, these parts are now movable or editable. Select the individual parts and drag them to get the expected view.

Step3: Select all the parts of the expected view. Right-click the selected part and then select the ‘Make device’ option from the Right-click Menu.


Step4: By accessing various options, you can edit or retain the component’s name, index, and other reference parameters. Once this configuration is complete, the component is generated in the library and can be utilized as a regular component by positioning it in the workspace. The broken-down elements can then be removed.

Next, it’s essential to confirm if the altered component functions equivalently to the default one. Below, there is a simulation video comparing the operations of both modified and default components. The process to modify the component is also demonstrated.

Verification and Modifying the View of Relay – Video Demo

One of the most common styles of switches is the SPDT Mechanical switch. The SPDT stands for Single Pole, Double Throw. Simply stated, there is a common terminal on the switch where the voltage and current is applied, and that voltage and current can be either directed to the normally open or normally closed terminal. The direction of the current flow is typically directed by a mechanical roller lever that actuates the switch.
