Two Single "POTENTIOMETER_RATED" in One Ultiboard Package

Two Single "POTENTIOMETER_RATED" in One Ultiboard Package

I have design requiring the use of a dual potentiometer in both Multisim and Ultiboard.

 

In Multisim its quite easy to simulate the operation of a dual potentiometer. The same keyboard key can be used for changing the values of each "POTENTIOMETER_RATED" at the same time. Transferring the design to Ultiboard, there are several dual potentiometer packages but I can only put one "POTENTIOMETER_RATED" in each dual potentiometer package. Am I missing something here, or is there a way to do this?


I have also tried to make a new component with multi sections using the spice model from the "POTENTIOMETER_RATED" but get an error regarding the number of pins in the model not being the same as the number of pins in the package.

 

The initial data I enter is correct; 2 sections, number of pins in each section: 3 and total pins: 6. I obviously need to edit the model data but have had no success to date.

 

If anyone can shed some light, I would much appreciate it. I've attached the copied

 

"POTENTIOMETER_RATED" model for reference.

 

Thank you for your time.

Just to correct myself; the error message I get is:-

 

"If there are more model pins than component symbol pins, this component will not simulate properly. Model pins 5, Component Symbol pins 3.

Hi!

 

I did some research about this and found this article that may come in handy. As well, here I leave the SPICE  fundamentals. 

 

Have a great day!

Many Thanks for the kind input. Hopefully there will be an addition to the NI software to include a Dual Pot for simulation that can be linked to the various Dual Pot footprints already available in the NI suite.
