Defining a Non-Conducting Element

A non-conducting element consists of a fibre core.

  1. On the Cables tab, in the Definitions group, click the  Non-conducting elements icon.

    Figure 1. The Create non-conducting element dialog.
  2. Under Fibre parameters, from the Medium drop-down list, select one of the following:
    • To specify the medium consisting of a predefined dielectric, select the dielectric.
    • To specify the medium consisting of a dielectric, which is not yet defined in the model, click the icon to define a dielectric or add a dielectric from the media library.
  3. Under Fibre parameters, in the Radius field, enter a value for the cable radius.
  4. In the Label field, add a unique label for the non-conducting element.
  5. Click Create to create the coaxial cable and close the dialog.
