Electrical types of Digi-Key schematic symbols


First of all, thanks for creating the Digi-Key KiCad library!

I’ve been using a couple of the parts from the library, and ran into some questions about electrical types.

For the BS-7 battery holder, the pins have electrical type “Power Input.” Since it’s a battery, shouldn’t the type be “Power Output?”

For the 100SP1T2B4M6QE toggle switch, the pins have electrical type “Bidirectional.” This is giving me trouble when I try to use the toggle switch as a power switch. In the official KiCad library, switches use type “Passive,” which I think would work better.


Yes, I think your probably right. I’ll look into getting that changed in the next update.
