Add the ability to select a checkbox for receptacles and equipment so that short circuit calculations are included for that device.

        I sometimes show large pieces of equipment on the one-line diagram, and the short circuit current next to the equipment. Also, most devices and many equipment control panels are only rated for 5K of fault current. The breaker's AIC rating doesn't make any difference.

        Curious why this is needed - shouldn't the breaker be rated correctly so the downstream components are protected?
