We get questions regarding adding an slc expander card to a panel.
First, a few definitions:
- A panel is typically an Assembly in FireCAD's terminology.
- Circuits do not usually originate from an assembly but from a card within the assembly.
In this example, we are using a Silent Knight 6820 panel with SK protocol.
Create a project and then when it is open and a drawing is added, place the panel on the drawing.
From the FireCAD ribbon, choose the Assembly Editor
When the assembly editor opens, select "add component"
A list of available components appears. You can use the full text search to narrow your selection down.
Then select "Add Devices".
In this example we added the Node/Card name to help us identify the circuit later. Select "Apply".
Your available circuits now include M33 from the main board and M01 from the expander card.
