1 Drawing the Potential Definition Points or
Connection Points
Potentials are defined by potential definition points or potential connection points.
Precondition:
You have opened a project and are in a schematic page.
1. Select the menu items Insert > Potential definition point or Insert >
Potential connection point.

The symbol for the potential definition or point hangs on the cursor.

2. Click in the schematic to place the potential definition or connection point.

The properties are assigned to the connections running through the
potential definition point or the connection joined to the potential connection
point.

2 Highlighting the Potentials or Signals
Potentials or signals can be temporarily highlighted in color to allow a quick overview
of their extent. The currently selected potential or signal is then colored according to
the colors you have define in the user settings.
The highlighting of signals is described below; potentials can be highlighted in the
same manner using the menu item View > Potential tracking. (In this case the
coloring is extended beyond the signal to include the entire potential).
Precondition:
In the user settings, you have defined the color to be used for highlighting the signal
or potential (Options > Settings > User > Graphical editing > General, in the
Track potential drop-down list).
View > Signal tracking

1. Click a connection symbol or a connection line.

EPLAN searches for the associated signal and colors this completely (i.e.,
also over page boundaries).

2. Click another connection.

The highlighting of the first signal is removed and the signal associated with
this connection is colored.

3. Select the menu item View > Signal tracking a second time.

The signal highlighting is removed.
