CAD software for electrical design
AutoCAD Electrical 2-Year Subscription Renewal
is AutoCAD software for controls designers, purpose-built to create and modify electrical control systems. Automated tasks and comprehensive symbol
libraries help to increase productivity, reduce errors, and provide accurate information to manufacturing. Stay ahead of the competition with AutoCAD Electrical
software, which offers significant productivity gains over AutoCAD software by automating many of the complex tasks associated with creating accurate,
industry-standard electrical control systems.
- Increase Productivity
- When engineers create electrical control systems using software not specifically built for electrical design tasks, they must often find
manual workarounds to get the job done-wasting valuable design time and limiting productivity. Since AutoCAD Electrical software is AutoCAD for controls designers, it
contains many features and benefits that enable users to dramatically increase design efficiency, while maintaining a smooth integration with the
familiar AutoCAD environment. A recent study shows up to an 80 percent increase in productivity when moving to AutoCAD Electrical from AutoCAD. AutoCAD Electrical helps
manufacturers get their products to market faster with lower costs.
- Reduce Errors and Comply with Industry Standards
- As engineers create electrical controls designs using generic tools, it is easy to introduce errors and design inconsistencies. The ability
to virtually eliminate errors before they reach the shop floor can provide a distinct competitive advantage. AutoCAD Electrical includes automatic error-checking
capabilities that help designers perform real-time diagnostics to catch problems before the build phase of a project. In addition to reducing errors,
AutoCAD Electrical helps companies compete in the global marketplace by offering support for regional and international standards. With more than 350,000 components
from the industry's most popular vendors-including more than 3,000 intelligent PLC I/O modules-AutoCAD Electrical provides a comprehensive library of manufacturer
content, enabling users to produce consistent, standards-based designs.
- Manage Design Data
- Once the design is complete, it is important to share accurate design and part information with manufacturing. Creating crucial parts
lists, BOMs, and from/to wire lists using software that is not built specifically for these tasks can waste valuable time and resources. AutoCAD Electrical includes
robust automated reporting tools so the design data being shared with downstream users is correct and current. In addition, AutoCAD Electrical is tightly integrated
with Autodesk Data Management applications, which enables the efficient and secure exchange of design data and promotes earlier collaboration between
design and manufacturing workgroups.
- Facilitate Collaboration
- AutoCAD Electrical enables both electrical and mechanical teams to work collaboratively by making it easy to share the electrical design intent for cables
and conductors directly with team members using Autodesk Inventor software, adding valuable electrical controls design data to the digital prototype.
Users can also publish DWF files directly from AutoCAD Electrical and securely collaborate on 2D and 3D designs with customers, suppliers, and others outside the
group. Different workgroups can manage and track all components of a digital prototype with the free Autodesk Design Review software-the all-digital
way to review, measure, mark up, and track changes to designs-enabling better reuse of critical design data, management of BOMs, and collaboration with
other teams and partners.
