Switch Electric Cycle Distribution

Loading video please wait.
There are many different types of switches in the Eco3D Component Library. The basic function of each switch is the same; the switch turns the power on or off for the given circuit name. The difference between the switches is how you specify when to switch the switch.

The Cycle distribution allows the number of cycles per hour and the length of each cycle in seconds.

At the end of the hour the switch will reset ready for the next hour.

In this video we create a simple circuit to demonstrate using the cycle distribution component. First load an Energy Meter, then load the cycle distribution component. Check that the circuit name is set to “Lights”, then modify the number of cycles and cycle length as required. Next we select a component to connect to the circuit, in this example we use the simple Filament Blub.

We then run the simulation at a slow speed, so that we can clearly see the light changing colour as the power switches on and off.
