How to Connect Objects in ConceptDraw PRO on PC

ConceptDraw PRO provides a few options for drawing connections between objects: Direct Connectors, Smart, Arc, Bezier, Curve and Round Connectors. You can connect objects in your ConceptDraw diagram with proper connectors using the embedded automatic connection modes. This article describes how you can connect objects with connectors and how you can ascribe different types and behaviors. Read more

How to Add Text to a Connector in ConceptDraw PRO

The new ConceptDraw Arrows10 Technology is a powerful diagramming technique that powered the way business drawing created. ConceptDraw PRO gives you some tools for connecting shapes: Direct Connectors, Smart, Arc, Bezier, Curve and Round Connectors.Direct Connectors are direct lines from the point to the point. Smart , Arc, Bezier, Curve and Round Connectors are almost the same as Direct Connectors. However, they automatically move around other objects. You can use Chain, or Tree connection mode for connection of multiple objects with any type of connectors. ConceptDraw PRO allows you to add and move text on a connector the same way that you add and move text on other any object. Read more

ConceptDraw Arrows10 Technology

You can see that when you rotate a group, connectors change their angle, keeping their position inside of the grouped objects. If you decide to ungroup the objects, the connectors will adjust to keep lines parallel to the edges of the sheet. The magic of ConceptDraw Arrows10’s rotating group containing connectors, makes complex diagramming simple and easy. The way to connect objects has never been easier. Read more
The vector stencils library "Terminals and connectors" contains 43 element symbols of terminals, connectors, plugs, polarized connectors, jacks, coaxial cables, and conductors.
Use it for drawing the wiring diagrams, electrical layouts, electronic schematics, and circuit diagrams.
"An electrical connector is an electro-mechanical device for joining electrical circuits as an interface using a mechanical assembly. Connectors consist of plugs (male-ended) and jacks (female-ended). The connection may be temporary, as for portable equipment, require a tool for assembly and removal, or serve as a permanent electrical joint between two wires or devices. An adapter can be used to effectively bring together dissimilar connectors.
There are hundreds of types of electrical connectors. Connectors may join two lengths of flexible copper wire or cable, or connect a wire or cable or optical interface to an electrical terminal.
In computing, an electrical connector can also be known as a physical interface... Cable glands, known as cable connectors in the US, connect wires to devices mechanically rather than electrically and are distinct from quick-disconnects performing the latter." [Electrical connector. Wikipedia]
"A terminal is the point at which a conductor from an electrical component, device or network comes to an end and provides a point of connection to external circuits. A terminal may simply be the end of a wire or it may be fitted with a connector or fastener. In network analysis, terminal means a point at which connections can be made to a network in theory and does not necessarily refer to any real physical object. In this context, especially in older documents, it is sometimes called a "pole".
The connection may be temporary, as seen in portable equipment, may require a tool for assembly and removal, or may be a permanent electrical joint between two wires or devices.
All electric cell have two terminals. The first is the positive terminal and the second is the negative terminal. The positive terminal looks like a metal cap and the negative terminal looks like a metal disc. The current flows from the positive terminal, and out through the negative terminal, replicative of current flow (positive (+) to negative (-) flow)." [Terminal (electronics). Wikipedia]
The shapes example "Design elements - Terminals and connectors" was drawn using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the Electrical Engineering solution from the Engineering area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. Read more

How to Set Line Jumps for Smart Connectors in ConceptDraw PRO

Connecting objects in ConceptDraw PRO is an easy task. You can use Chain, or Tree connection mode for automatic connection of multiple objects. Besides the automatic connection modes, ConceptDraw PRO offers few options to connect objects manually: Direct, Arc, Bezier, Smart, Curve and Round Connectors. You can make them square, arched or angled and also set vertical or horizontal orientation Thus, you can control how the jumps and orientation occurs on smart connectors. When two smart connectors cross each other you can control how the two intersecting lines look. Read more
