High Intensity Discharge lighting is becoming more common in lighting. Normal operating current consumption is significantly lower than incandescent bulbs of similar light output, but startup current can be very large – several times the normal operating current, and the wiring must be designed to accommodate this.
Here’s the way to model this in VeSys:
Create a custom component, as shown, and set the inrush path’s load to the specified inrush current.
Build the design, as normal
Define Named Switch States for both the startup condition – inrush switches closed - and the normal operating conditions.
Test the wiring using the startup state
It may an idea to put the in-rush load and switch on a special layer (maybe called simulation or something similar?) so that it can be switched off when it is being printed.
