What is SOLIDWORKS ELECTRICAL?


SOLIDWORKS Electrical is a systems-level electrical design package that allows you to design electrical schematics quickly and accurately with customizable design tools. Electrical makes creating 2D schematics a quick and painless process. Additionally, create fully associated single line diagrams, terminal strip drawings, cabinet layouts, and more.


Since SOLIDWORKS Electrical is based on an SQL database, it’s easy to generate reports and confidently make design changes. The reports can be Bills of Materials, Wiring Lists, Design Rule Checks, or they can be fined tuned for specific applications.


SOLIDWORKS Electrical is the only schematic design package that can be linked to the 3D SOLIDWORKS mechanical environment. This capability means you can automatically route and get the lengths of your wires, cables, and harnesses.

Why Choose SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D?

SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D enables you to place electrical components and use SOLIDWORKS routing technology to automatically interconnect electrical design elements within a 3D model. 2D schematics and 3D models are synchronized so any changes are automatically updated.

 

Why Choose SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic?

SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic has an intuitive and easy-to-use interface that automates complex tasks, such as contact cross-referencing and terminal drawings. It accelerates product development by simultaneously minimizing the repetitive tasks associated with developing electrical schematics.

SOLIDWORKS ELECTRICAL Features

Automated Project Configurations

To speed up designs, SOLIDWORKS Electrical has extremely customizable Project Configurations. Project templates make use of these configurations to ensure that the right design settings are in place so you can jump into designing. Configurations are powerful, ranging from multiple languages to text setting for specific symbol attributes. Multiple project templates can be configured for unique design demands and can be selected when the new project is created.

Fully Associative Designs

The components inside of a SOLIDWORKS Electrical project are fully associated. This means that any properties applied to a component propagate to the Bill of Materials, Single Line symbols, schematic symbols, and even the 3D SOLIDWORKS models. The beauty of a fully associated design is that changes can be done once, and all other symbols and models will reflect these changes. There’s no need to manually go through every page and make changes. SOLIDWORKS Electrical facilitates quick and accurate design changes.

Accurate Wire and Cable Lengths

Get accurate wire and cable lengths by using the power of the SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D add-in. After creating the schematic design, the 3D Electrical add-in can be used to insert the 3D models into a SOLIDWORKS assembly of the project. It provides an Electrical Component Manager which shows a list of every component in the project. It's easy to insert the components by simply right-clicking and inserting the SOLIDWORKS model associated with the component. Once the components have been included in the SOLIDWORKS assembly, routing cables, harnesses, and wires are only a click of the button. 

Report Customization

SOLIDWORKS Electrical comes preloaded with tons of reports including Bills of Materials, Cable Lists, Wire Lists, Drawing Lists, To-From lists, and many more. The reports in Electrical are very powerful because they will automatically update just based on symbols, cables, and wires drawn on the schematic. All of the reports can be customized to report nearly anything in the design. Bills of Material can be specified based on what wiring harness they are a part of what cabinet they are in or both. You don't have to wonder what cable cores are drawn on which page for every cable in a project? The reporting possibilities in SOLIDWORKS Electrical are endless.
