About Panel Reports

AutoCAD Electrical has multiple panel reports that you can run.

Select which drawings to process. The report displays options to:

Bill of Material report

This report parallels the Schematic BOM report, but deals with panel component and terminal footprint symbols and nameplates. Optionally, it can include schematic items that are not referenced on the panel layouts (for example, field devices). You can customize the scope of the report by filtering on certain location values (for example, report for CAB1 items only), process only a subset of drawings, or include/exclude certain categories of items. The report displays and tallies like items (for example, same part number) together. Those with extra subassembly items are shown with a SUB multiplier value.

Component report

This report lists every occurrence of a smart panel component footprint found on the current drawing or in the project drawing set. You can customize the scope of the report by filtering on certain location values (for example, report for CAB1 items only), process only a subset of drawings, or include/exclude certain categories of items. Each extracted panel component is listed as its own line item. If it has a part number that results in subassembly part numbers, or has been individually annotated with multi-BOM part numbers, each additional part number is a line item right below the main line item.

Note: This report will not include panel terminals unless you check that option.

Nameplate report

This report is similar to the panel component report, but filters out all but nameplate symbols.

Wire Connection report

Wire connection reports, extracted from the schematic wiring diagrams, can be formatted and inserted next to panel footprint symbols as simple wiring tables. AutoCAD Electrical extracts and formats a small report of wire connection information for the selected components, referencing the wire extract file. If your footprint symbols carry the AutoCAD Electrical X?TERMxx attributes, AutoCAD Electrical reports their XYZ wire connection location. The location is offset by the value defined in Panel Configuration dialog box.

Component Exception report

This report provides error checking between the schematics and panel layout drawings. AutoCAD Electrical looks at the selected components, both schematic and panel, looking for a match in the project. For each schematic component selected, it tries to find a matching panel component based on tag, location, and installation information. If a match is found, it compares catalog and description information, looking for any discrepancies. AutoCAD Electrical then looks at each selected panel component looking for a matching schematic component in the same way.

Terminal Exception report

This report provides error checking between the schematic terminals and panel layout terminals. AutoCAD Electrical looks at the selected terminals, both schematic and panel, looking for a match in the project. For each schematic terminal selected, it tries to find a matching panel terminal. If a match is found, it compares catalog information, looking for any discrepancies. AutoCAD Electrical then looks at each selected panel terminal looking for a matching schematic terminal in the same way.

Wire Annotation Exception report

This report lists which physical component symbol does not have a From and a To for wire annotation information. For wire annotation, the panel component symbols contain wiring information as either attributed or Mtext data. This is used as a troubleshooting mechanism to aid in the assignment of wiring annotation. End1 is the end of the wire that contains the annotation and End2 is the end of the wire that was annotated on End1, but is not found in the range of drawings selected.

Missing Level/Sequencing Assignments report

This report lists which component symbols do not have leveling and sequencing information already assigned to them. This is used as a troubleshooting mechanism to aid in the assignment of leveling and sequencing information to provide better wire routing capabilities.
