Each cell of the grid is either empty … or a crossing

The visualisation of the examples use a character grid but their crossings are not atomic (i.e. characters) but 2x2 sprites. In your last graph you shifted 2 of those (those nearest to the lower right corner) half a grid cell, so that is no longer a rectangular grid.

Using just 1 character for each atomic cell, an _ for a pass through and an X for a crossing and transliterating O. K. examples we saw in this thread in this way (the "wire" goes on the base line of the number):

0 1 1X0 2 3 3X2
0 ________1 1X _______2 2_X ______3 3__X _____4 4___X ____5 5____X ___6 6_____X __7 7______X _8 8_______X 9 9________X0
0__ __3 1_ X _4 2 X X 2 3X X X0 4_X_X_1

Due to the half cell shifts in your graphs, none of those can be displayed in this way.

Update: On reviewing, also in this type of graph a crossing is an X in one cell, but also an empty cell above (mandatory, because otherwise would be an incorrect wiring). So the original constraint formulation ("each cell is one of 2 types") seems indeed not totally fitting.
