    Wired Components

      Hi,

       

       

      I need to add a component which by default arrives from the supplier with the given length of cable.  This specific cable will then have to be cut to length and then also indicate to which cavity of a connector it will be used.

       

       

       

      Please see an example of such a product

      thanks,

      Steve

          Steve,

           

          I would create the component as a "Device" and "Include On BOM".  Develop/assign the electrical symbol and use it to define pin-out of an appropriate Footprint (Device Connector).  You can use "Extra" tab specification and diagram notes to handle the cut-to-length part.

           

          It gets more complicated if the component will be incorporated into a harness, but I assume that is not the case here.

           

          I hope this helps,
