Insert components into your schematic with the catalog information assigned.
Easily add or edit catalog items and assign symbols and 3D parts to the catalog database.
Add the Electrical Catalog Browser to Inventor 3D CAD software 2015 during installation to access 3D electrical parts.
Reduce the risk of too many contacts assigned to a relay, and minimize time spent manually tracking assignments.
AutoCAD Electrical sets up parent/child relationships between coils and contacts. It keeps track of how many contacts are assigned to any coil or multicontact device and alerts you if you exceed the limit.
Define a project’s I/O assignments in a spreadsheet program to create a comprehensive set of PLC I/O drawings.
Automatically generate drawings per the drawing configuration, complete with ladders, I/O modules, addresses and description text, and component and terminal symbols connected to each I/O point. This report exports to the PLC (programmable logic controller) program, virtually eliminating the need to create those drawings manually.
Use component libraries from the industry’s most popular vendors to create standards-based electrical designs that comply with industry requirements.
The software includes a manufacturer database of more than 650,000 components and symbols, such as switches, push buttons, relays, contacts, and terminals. In addition, choose from an extensive library of pneumatic, hydraulic, and P&ID devices.
