Cabletag & Cableshield

Hi, is there any symbol that generates a cabletag & a wiretag when drawing a line over the cable like in the example photo?

I also wounder if there is any shielding symbol like in the image that indicates the cable is shielded. 614d742b80dd3

Hi Tomi,

Thanks for reaching out to us.

For the cable tag, we don't have a symbol that generates custom tags by drawing a line over the wires. However, we do have a cable tag symbol in Electra that works the same. You may find the cable tag symbol in our IEC Symbols and JIC/NFPA Symbols stencil. Kindly follow the steps below to achieve the results you want:

  1. Drop the cable tag on a wire to display the cable information:

  2. Also, you can choose to edit the cable tag and select the information to show for the cable:
    61515f3576dd6

  3. Then, you could move the text of the cable tags to the position that you want:
    61515f75a32f6

  4. After that, you can draw a normal line as a graphic purpose across the wires to achieve the results you want:
    61515d8092d03

Regarding the shielding symbol, we do not have that at the current moment. However, you could draw an eclipse shape to represent the shielding symbol, as it is only for graphic purposes. After that, you could drag and drop it onto the stencil to save it so that you could reuse it in the future.

We hope that helps. Should you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to reach us again. We'd be keen to assist you.

Thank you.
