Use the PLC Database File Editor

AutoCAD Electrical can generate any of hundreds of different PLC I/O modules on demand, in a variety of different graphical styles, all without a single, complete I/O module library symbol resident on the system. Modules automatically adapt to the underlying ladder rung spacing, whatever that value might be, and can even be stretched or broken into two or more pieces at insertion time. This is all possible because AutoCAD Electrical generates PLC I/O modules via a parametric generation technique driven by a PLC database (ACE_PLC.MDB).
