The attached "defaultStyle.xml" contains the graphics for the DIN style connector. Copy this to C:\MentorGraphics\VeSys\config
You will also need to modify the style to use these graphics.
This will need to happen for each "Wiring" node in styling that represents a connector (e.g. Inline Plug, Inline Receptacle, Plug and Receptacle).
Alternatively, I have exported my style settings. Copy the attached file "SystemData.xml" to a new folder called C:\temp\SystemData. Now from a command window type "vesysmigrate -d -f=c:\temp", this will import my style settings.
I think it would be good to make these styles available in the community exchange.
I just tried this, but the whole plug and receptacle is making me a bit confused.
I put DIN-male in the plugs and the female in the receptacle.
After applying the style on the drawing the male treminals ended up where the female should be and vice versa.
Then I switched the male and female in the style set, the female ended up in the right places but the orientation is wrong.
Could you explain the logic on plugs/receptacle and male\female?
I did exactly that first, see pic.
By the way I'm using the Quick start project that came with Vesys and the screen grab is from the audio sheet.
But the wiring diagram don't make sense to me as the speakers and relays is connected with male contacts wich I have never seen before, well basically everything looked wrong. So I switched places for the contacts so they would end up in the right places (in my opinion), but then the orientation was wrong (pic. in my first post).
Maybe this design is made like that purpously?
However shouldn't it be possible to use both male and female contacts in both type of connectors?
You are right the starter data design has two different orientations for the connectors, which is wrong. I'll make sure Muhammad picks that up for the next release of the starter data.
In terms of being able to toggle the gender, I believe plugs are always male, receptacles are always female.
There are connectors that have both female and male terminals, or can mix them e.g. ITT/Cannon Sure Seal and AMP Universal Mate-N-Lok.
When creating a wiring diagram it is important for me to identify which is the male or female terminal.
This is why I like to have a graphical representation of the terminal, not only the connector. And also be able to mix them.
Ususally a male terminal(Contact,Sleeve) goes into a female connector (Receptacle) and the female terminal(sleeve) into a Male connector(Plug), but there are exceptions.
So I believe we need flexibility on this.
That everyone uses different names on everything does'nt make things easier .
Ahhh the old "I would like a Male Connector please." chestnut!
"What? You mean the actual Male Connector or a Connector that houses Male Terminals?"
I am convinced that companies like ITT and AMP looked at this as an opportunity to market a connector that can have both Male and Female terminals...
This thread has reminded me of a terminal I once saw when I worked as a consultant at a Wire Harness Manufacturer...it has NO gender! It was an inline power terminal that could be plugged into itself!!!! Maybe we should have a community on unusual components?
I think I know wich one you're talking about, Anderson PowerPole (can't be that many of those around).
I tried the same as you described to migrate the Systemdata.xml file in my Vesys2.0 but it is asking user name and password of Vesys migration See attached image, pls help me, what is to be done next?
