Electrical Design Software | Elecdes Design Suite by Scada Systems Ltd

  • We have completed several projects with Elecdes and we are very pleased with how easy it is to use. Engineering Manager (Manufacturing, St Louis)
  • We can produce an electrical scheme in less than half the time required historically. Much of the reduction was achieved in the automated generation of terminal strips and wiring diagrams. Engineering Manager, Amoco Production (USA)
  • We have calculated that the use of Elecdes/Paneldes has saved our company up to 80% in man-hours to turn a project around. The software reduces human errors and is more precise. CAD Documentation Manager, LMG (UK)
  • We were able to create nearly a thousand schematics and wiring diagrams in a matter of a few days using Protogen. The setup and prep time needed to autogenerate these drawings was dramatically less than it would have taken to manually draft them all. Electrical Engineer, AMEC (Canada)
  • Our power business utilised the capabilities of Elecdes and Paneldes in the generation of all loop and termination diagrams, 3D cable tray design, auto cable routing and cable scheduling for the Pinjarra Unit 1 Gas Turbine Power Station. Chief Engineer, RML (Australia)
  • Paneldes automation of wire pre-fabrication is estimated to have saved 40-50% in the production costs of our modular K-series protection systems. Engineering Manager, GEC (UK)
  • Using Protogen, I have produced over 200 loop drawings from 16 different prototypes, and I did it in less than 2 weeks. The others, 4 of them, produced 500 loop drawings manually, and it has taken them 3 months. Engineer, Roche Energy (Australia)
  • Scada Systems have always been keen to help and develop their software along with the client; this aspect is a key factor to give us an advantage over our competitors. CAD Documentation Manager, LMG (UK)
  • Automatic generation of drawings from database information resulted in significant improvements in terms of drawing accuracy, quality control, and change management over more conventional drawing production methods. Engineering Manager, Downer Engineering (Australia)

Scada Systems: Software and Services



About Scada Systems and the Elecdes Design Suite

Scada Systems was founded in 1985 as a control and data acquisition engineering consultancy. After identifying the need for automated electrical design software, Scada Systems set about establishing the world’s leading suite of instrumentation, panel and electrical CAD design software: EDS.

By integrating with off-the-shelf CAD software, EDS extends powerful design capabilities with electrical concepts, allowing engineers to think and work in terms of "breakers, circuits, and terminal strips", rather than "circles, lines and arcs".

EDS software is highly data-centric, allowing users to greatly reduce the amount of work required for repetitive tasks, by providing features such as global editing of electrical CAD entities, advanced reporting, and database-driven instrument management.

Functionality of EDS products is largely customer driven, many features get added as a result of user suggestions.

EDS products have been sold in over 50 countries and are available in 5 languages, and Scada Systems has offices, distributors, and agents around the world.
