I have multiple iBathway canalis lines (from Schneider Electric), each line/iBathway is installed above each row inside the data center, and each line/iBathway consists of the below:
1- PowerLogic PM 5310 >> inside the feeding box at beginning of the each line (feeding each line/iBathway).
2- Energy meters iEM3155 >> inside the feeding boxes along the line/iBathway and above each APC rack (feeding APC racks).
Now, i need to ask how to model and associate them in DCO, i mean how to draw the line/iBathway and how to create the power path.
Note: there is no genomes for the above two models.
Thanks for advance for quick response.

Currently busbars or overhead busways are not supported in DCO as a device modeled above the racks. I have seen customers take a floor pdu and make it thin, and stretch it out the length of a row (for example) and then use a panel inside to model the rack connections.
It may then be possible to model the measured data ... but that part I'd have to test as I know multiple BCM devices can be associated to a PDU device but I'm not 100% certain whether multiple power meters can be.
The ability to model busbar like devices is on the feature roadmap so you can expect to see feature improvements in this area in a future release.

Following your reply and your suggestion above:
Kindly i need to ask how to model the power meter 5310 and the Energy meter iEM3155 in the DCO.
As the PM5310 and iEM3155 don't have genomes in DCO, and when i associate them to generic panel breakers i don't get the readings.
So please i need to know how to get data from the PM5310 and iEM3155 into DCO.
