SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic Standard is a schematic design tool that helps rapid development of embedded electrical systems for equipment and other products and allows you to streamline and simplify a wide range of design tasks, from terminal block to contact cross reference assignments using an automated design and management tool. A built-in library of thousands of symbols and over 500,000 manufacturer part information speeds development of multiple iterations of common circuit segments within projects and optimises design re-use.

Key Features

Single Line Schematic

Electrical system planning tool including collaboration tool, system-level blueprint of electrical system, Isometric or flat symbols representing components used to create complex embedded electrical systems.

Multiline Schematic

Traditional schematic creation tool using electrical symbols to represent logical components and discrete connection to represent each electrical connection, optimised for simplification of repetitive tasks.

SOLIDWORKS Electrical - Multi-line Schematic

Electrical Component and Symbol Library

An extensive on-line portal library of industry-standard schematic symbols (IEC, ANSI, JIS, GB) combined with a database of manufacturer parts, to provide an easily customisable and adaptable parts base through easy-to-use import tools.

PLC Tools

The PLC management tools automate many PLC wiring design tasks such as automatic circuit assignment and importing I/O and Address assignments, along with the ability to import PLC data and labels.

Automated Terminal Drawing Creation

Automatically generate terminal drawings based on and synchronised with the real-time design

SOLIDWORKS Electrical - Automated Terminal Drawing Creation
SOLIDWORKS Electrical Professional combines the schematic design capabilities of the standard package with the 3D capabilities of SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D. Design teams can work on one or more projects at the same time, using real-time bi-directional updates to keep all work current. Integrate SOLIDWORKS Electrical schematics with the 3D model and then place 3D versions of all electrical parts into the model, creating paths and connections with wires, cables and harnesses. Create fully integrated BOMs containing both mechanical and electrical parts.

Key Features

Real-time collaboration

Synchronised, bidirectional environment enables multiple users across both mechanical and electrical teams to work on the same project simultaneously in real time for easier project collaboration, speeding up product development.

SOLIDWORKS Electrical - Real Time Collaboration

Real-time synchronisation

SOLIDWORKS Electrical synchronises all project design data in real-time, bidirectionally between 2D schematics and the 3D model in a multi-user collaborative environment. Key information such as BOMs and design data is unified between both mechanical and electrical design teams, thereby simplifying day to day design tasks and reducing product development time, manufacturing defects and scrappage.

SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D gives you the tools to place electrical components within your 3D model and to use advanced SOLIDWORKS routing technology to automatically connect electrical design elements. Optimal lengths for wires, cables and harnesses can be determined whilst at the same time maintaining design and BOM synchronisation between both electrical and mechanical designs.

Key Features

Electrical 3D

Provides a fully bidirectional 3D CAD integration with SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic which accesses electrical project data from either the 3D model or the 2D schematic. It uses SOLIDWORKS electrical routing technology and automates electrical cable, harness and wiring routing. Wire and cable path tools include automated cable and wire segregation and both electrical conduit and duct are allowed. SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D also has the ability to integrate and auto-route ribbon cable interconnects.

Auto-routing

SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D provides advanced SOLIDWORKS routing technology to simplify the auto-routing process for wire, cables and harness in the 3D CAD model. Routing detail information is available to all users of the project instantly.

Harness development

Create schematic driven harness designs, utilising real-time bidirectional functionality within SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D, coupled with powerful routing, flattening and automatic documentation. With Schematic design, harness electrical interconnections are defined with either a single line or multiline schematic tool and you can detail a harness assembly drawing easily converting a SOLIDWORKS 3D model into a 2D drawing with Flatten Rout capabilities, with user defined automated detailing.

Webcasts Our technical team have put together a variety of pre-recorded short webcasts intended to give you an overview of particular features, functions and benefits within the software, either at a product level or within a particular industry sector. We’re adding to these on a frequent basis so check back regularly to see what’s new. Webinars If you like a more interactive demonstration where you can ask questions of the presenter, but don’t have the time to physically attend one of our demonstrations then why not register for one of our weekly webinars. A full schedule is maintained here on the website. Why not register with us to be kept up to date on new webinars added to the schedule. Request a trial We know that when making a purchase decision for a key piece of software of this kind you need to know that it’s going to be the right choice for the company. To ensure you’re making the right choice we offer a free trial of SOLIDWORKS for a limited period. Complete the form to register and one of our team will call you shortly to arrange your free trial. Request a demo Want to find out more about just how SOLIDWORKS or one of its partner products is right for your company’s needs then why not book a demonstration with us. Many of our technical team have industry experience that means they understand exactly what you need to achieve when using the software. Book a demo with us today. Attend a local event Like to hear what your peers think about SOLIDWORKS or hear how they are using it to resolve any issues they have? Or do you simply want to come along to see the software in action, have the chance to ask questions and hear what others are asking. Take a look at our event schedule to find one in your area. We’re constantly adding to this so check back regularly.
