New mechatronic components are created in the library (see the following figure, top left) via the context menu of any library. The following figure shows the creation of a new mechatronic component of the Actuator type (1) within the T_Mechatronic_ModularSystem library.
The editor of a new mechatronic component is opened via the Attributes editor page.
The component is created as a result of the assignment of a name (2) and the saving of the editor. The name field is highlighted in red as long as no valid name has been assigned. This name must be unique within a unit.
A detailed description of the meaning of the further fields will be provided in subsequent sections.
