HVAC Template for standard Split AC

I studied in detail different HVAC templates of Openstudio and Energyplus but, unfortunately, I did not find the correct one for my situation. I would like to model a common split HVAC (for one room) with DX cooling and electric heating (no heatpump!) (size: 0.75-1.0 tons). I found Openstudio PTAC Template but it has Hot Water Heating and I cannot change it. In Energyplus PTAC Template, I saw that I can specify Heating coil to electric.

So, is there any template for my desired system in Openstudio? Which one? If not, could you, please, specify the components and layout of such a system in OS HVAC System tab (if possible with screenshot. Thanks a lot.
