Termination Editor

The Termination Editor lets the user combine several part number types into a single selectable Class. For example, instead of selecting five different types of Panduit ring terminals, you can just select a class called Ring. This greatly reduces the data entry that is required when editing the parts database to assign the types of terminations that a part will accept. It also allows you to assign your own preferred terminology for types of terminations instead of using the predefined Panduit part type codes. Lastly, it allows groups to be created that are tailored to the parts used at your company.
