Using Bus Connectors

It is possible to make multiple connections between subcircuits and elsewhere within a schematic, using bus terminals and connectors. These act like ribbon cable, making multiple connections through single graphical objects. This can greatly simplify the schematic visually.

Bus terminals are terminal devices that provide multiple contacts. Bus subcircuit connectors (BSCs) are locations of a subcircuit where multiple connections can be established. Bus terminals can be placed on BSCs, or can be connected to other bus terminals, and BSCs can connect together directly. Bus wires can also be used to connect bus terminals and BSCs.
