In Revit and Design Master, what is the best way to model a fused switch and an enclosed circuit breaker?

I have situations where I will use one or the other for the OCP for the secondary of a transformer so I can exceed 10' on the secondary side.

It depends on what you want to happen.

If you want to be able to display a different OCP graphic on the one-line diagram, you can use the "Change Graphics" command on the feeder to choose a different block. You might need to add a custom block if we don't have what you are looking for in our default blocks.

If you want these to show up as a node on the various calculations, you'll need to model it as a piece of electrical equipment in Revit. It will need to be connected between the transformer and the downstream panel.

I'm not sure if either of those suggestions answer what you are looking for. Let me know if they do not.
