I have this schematic here I'm trying to recreate in Kicad. I'm lost on the meaning of part "PH_A, P8".

  • \$\begingroup\$ I'd say a single-pin connector with a reference designator of P8. PH_A is the name of the signal on that pin. There is also a P9, with a signal name of PH_B \$\endgroup\$ – Peter Bennett Nov 24 '17 at 7:20
  • \$\begingroup\$ Phase A,....... \$\endgroup\$ – Marko Buršič Nov 24 '17 at 7:38

As you might know in KiCAD the schematic symbols and the footprints are not coupled.

In order to recreate it use "conn_01x01" symbol in the schmatic editor(Eeschema). You can change its value to "PH_A". This symbol represents a single pin component, but it can be anything you want. You should refer to the pcb file of the attached project and search for "PH_A".
