Defining a Non-Conducting Element

Define a non-conducting element consisting of a fibre core.

  1. On the Cables tab, in the Definitions group, click the  Non-Conducting Element 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 to close the dialog.
