Jamb Switches

Recommended Posts

Next Question,

 

Is there a way to show a jamb switch? How do you show a jamb switch? A switch symbol on the inside hinge side of a door opening that turns on the light when the door opens. I searched the library and nothing appeared with the search word "switch". All sorts of switches appeared but no Jamb Switch.

 

Tnx de JK

I never bothered to make a fully 3D symbol for such a thing (I rarely have a cause to place them). So what I do is to make a 2D symbol to represent the object in plan view and add the 2D symbol to my Electric Legend corresponding. It is not an object that makes a large impact in camera views.

Tnx. Dave. I'm not concerned abt the 3D view of a jamb switch because the door will be closed in 3D view. We use jamb switches in almost all Pantry Doors. Just like when the refrigerator door controls the interior light, so does the jamb switch in a food pantry. I would eventually like it to be counted in a materials/electrical schedule.

Thanks for the symbol. Nice 3D block of an actual Jamb Switch. Is there a trick on getting the symbol to appear as a "S" in the Electrical Plan View?

yes just change the cad block associated with the switch to whatever you want.

Thank you, Perry, for the switch.

 

Could I suggest all Chief users adopt a naming nomenclature that is more user-friendly for future identification?

1. Easy linking to primary grouping within Chief as Elect, Furn, Plumb, etc.

2. Clear naming of the symbols function

3. Picture of symbol for users to determine its usefulness for them. 

 

This should allow symbols to be more easily located in the "User Catalogue" (User Catalog )

 

Soooooooooooo! Using your electrical switch as an example:
