Port elements (Electrical port, Signal input port, and Signal output port components) are used to connect internal Subsystem elements to the outside schematic. For every port which is added, a corresponding terminal is created in the outer Subsystem element. Port settings can be tweaked using the Port settings dialog, which can be accessed by double-clicking the port element. The Port settings dialogs for each port component can be seen in Figure 1, Figure 2, and Figure 3.

For more information on how to use subsystems to simplify models as part of a multi-level modeling approach, please refer to the Subsystem elements page.
