How to create solenoid valve manifold part in Manufacturer's Part Library

Question asked by Kevin Bouwman on Jun 12, 2013

I am new to Electrical and am finding I need to add most of my parts to the library.  I have currently run stuck trying to figure out how to add solenoid valves to the library.  My current project contains an SMC SY5000 series six valve manifold.  One valve is a 4-way, 5-port, 3-position, w/block ports when centered.  It has two 24VDC solenoid coils.  The other 5 valves are 4-way, 5-port, 2-position, spring return, w/one 24VDC solenoid coil.  I would like to create schematics for the electrical and for the pneumatic circuits so these parts would have circuit connections for both.  I often use such a manifold configuration but with different combinations of valves.  Have any of you delt with this in any way?  If so, how?

Thanks!
