Elecdes is used, in conjunction with a CAD package, to produce Intelligent 2D circuit diagrams including; schematics, wiring diagrams, 1 line diagrams, cable block diagrams and loop diagrams. Elecdes has standard symbol and manufacturers parts libraries. Elecdes has a rich set of drawing and database tools to automate and speed the production of circuit diagrams.
Users creating multi sheet CAD circuit diagrams for construction, switchgear, process, vehicles, controls and manufacturing.
Over 200 000 manufacturers parts in Elecdes supplied catalogs. "Pick" the part you want during circuit construction. Includes Alstom, ABB, Siemens, SquareD, Telemecanique and others
Contains integrated database "Ebase" for: Project Management and Revision tracking, Automated project drawing index list, Automated wire interconnection lists, Automated cable lists, Automated conductor/core interconnection lists, Automated bill of materials and quantity summary, Automated wire label / ferrule lists and 2 WAY DATABASE LINKS.
On line relay contact/coil cross referencing. On line tag name duplication cross referencing. Component navigation tools for easily finding and viewing components spread over many sheets.
Automated conductor continuation cross referencing.
Automated database PROJECT-WIDE GLOBAL EDITOR for mass editing of tag, wire, terminal and specification data. Optionally use your favorite database or spreadsheet in conjunction with the Global Editor.
Long file names.
Cable scheduling application. Design and manage your cabling from a database!
Electrical Diagram Production Features
Over 5000 symbol library blocks.
Soft Snaps, line breaks and line repairs are included in the Elecdes intelligent insert, move, drag, copy, delete and line repair editing functions.
2 line and 3 phase drawing macros, ladder diagram construction macros.
PLC module builder with a library of thousands of current I/O cards from several manufacturers. Use is simple and friendly while graphical flexibility is high with many user preference options.
Elecdes intelligent array insertion.
"Contact Swapper" function to replace any subcomponent of a relay for another subcomponent (e.g. swap contacts) OR swap a normally closed switch for a normally open switch - with a single click.
"Subcomponent inserter" which allows rapid selection and insertion of contacts (or other device sub components) of any chosen relay or device. For large, smart, protection and distribution relays this decreases deployment time by 60%-90%.
Insert a component directly from the catalog database, the symbol being intelligently selected from your chosen standards. This eliminates symbol selection when working with part numbers directly.
Automated "incremental" tag name defaulting - with user programmable tagnames! IEC and ANSI naming conventions are provided as standard.
Automated wire numbering, rung numbering and "connect dot" placement.
"Equipotential Wire Naming". A wire can now be continued through terminal strips without changing the wire name.
Automated Terminal strip generator.
Automated wiring diagram generator.
Project wide cross reference back annotation.
Automated on-drawing BOM and cable list tables.
Optional inbuilt, Autocad compatible, cad engine removing the need to purchase expensive cad packages.
Simple table based icon menus with intelligent menu editor for user modification.
Polarised terminal sides are now possible.
A "SMART WIRING DIAGRAM FOOTPRINT" can be used to create "lifelike" terminal plans and device footprints, where required, when the wiring diagram generator is creating a wiring diagram.
Brownfield Terminals for linking to old / raster diagrams.
Move circuit for intelligent symbol move, retaining connecitons.
On Line - Documentation and Movie based tutorials.
