A SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic Component is a unique device designation/mark. Multiple symbols can make one component. Every component is directly linked to a manufacturer part; e.g. In a case of coil and contacts arrangements, we can keep adding additional auxiliary contacts to this component. This would entail that every symbol/symbol circuit have a manufacturer part circuit available that would directly correlate.
The first time a part is added, the application treats it as a base type of part. The remainder parts added to the same component would then come in as auxiliary, accessory or other types of parts.
One component can reference multiple symbols and as a rule of thumb the circuits of a symbol must match the circuits of a manufacturer part. We can keep adding symbols to a component as long as we simultaneously add parts with the right amount of matching circuits.
