An integrated library database provides thousands of symbols for use in your design, and you can speed up development by copying and reusing common circuit segments within a project or to other projects. Teams can work concurrently to reduce development time, and automated management tools streamline design of complex PLC connections. You can easily generate drawings, wire lists, “From-To” lists, and other documentation for manufacturing.
Use your SOLIDWORKS Electrical schematics in SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D, with bi-directional linking that captures design changes in both the schematic and the 3D model in real time.
Users can instantly generate from/to lists, wire lists, reports of wiring by manufacturer, line type, or any other data point instantly and accurately.
Electrical system planning tool utilizes simple pictorial representations of electrical components and interconnectors. Plus, traditional schematic creation tool with simplified user interface simplifies repetitive tasks.
SOLIDWORKS Electrical is built on a live SQL database. This means that your users are working off real-time data. By contrast, relying on XML data exchange may only take place periodically and could be outdated.
XML transfer from/to electrical schematic data and 3D models open up the possibility of multiple instances of identical components, which could make it difficult to correctly match the schematic parts back with the mechanical components.
The SOLIDWORKS Electrical database is loaded with standard-specific schematic symbols and manufacturer-specific parts.
Each part can be directly linked to an accurate 2D “footprint” for 2D panel layout, an icon view for high-level diagrams, and 3D SOLIDWORKS parts and assemblies.
Customers using MRP/ERP systems can easily link these parts, along with dozens of user-defined fields, to their existing systems. These libraries can be organized into company “favorites,” ensuring that all designers are working from a company’s preferred catalog of components.
Determine optimum locations for each wire type, gauge, function, or equipotential.
Ensure mounting brackets, DIN rails, PLC’s or any other hardware do not interfere with wiring.
3D design will allow you to instantly determine center of gravity, analyze parts for performance under operating conditions, such as vibration, excessive heat, or external forces. You’ll save money and cost by determining any issues before producing a prototype.
SOLIDWORKS® Electrical effortlessly eliminates the laborious task of creating and maintaining synchronized contact cross referencing. As the electrical design develops, the contacts are automatically synchronized and updated in real time on the schematic drawing, ensuring that the latest cross references are accounted and associated.
