Multi-part component (2 parts)

Cata , 07-02-2018, 03:10 PM
Hello everyone,

I am using the Altium Vault and I have a 2 part component (an inductor).

Part A of the component = electrical connection.
Part B of the component = mechanical support (no electrical connection).

I am a newbie, so please bear with me

Question: It is a must to have both in the schematic even though I leave "Part B" floating ? In other words, can I leave out "Part B" from the schematic ? My fear is not to have any problem later with the PCB layout.

Your time is greatly appreciated !

Here is the datasheet if anyone needs it: http://katalog.we-online.de/pbs/data...7443630550.pdf

You don't really need the second part included in the schematics in this case.

well thats a wierd way of making a component guess someone thought it would help.. I agree with mairomaster you dont need to implement it on the schematics.. but I would suggest removing it just to be sure.. just delete part B from the library component in your local lib.
