AUTOMATION – electrical CAD software

PC|SCHEMATIC has been a leading Electrical CAD software developer on the global market for 35 years, specialising in intelligent design and documentation of electrical control systems and PLC diagrams, pneumatics and hydraulic systems.

The electrical CAD software PC|SCHEMATIC Automation is designed from the basic concept of setting you free to focus on the electrical aspects, while the program handles the practical side. Beyond the basic drawing functions, Automation offers you a comprehensive series of functions specially designed for electrical projects with IEC/EN standards.

When you click on a component in the component vendor database, you automatically get a menu containing the electrical symbols for the component. By placing these symbols in the diagrams you also transfer information to the electrical diagram which enables the program to fill out order lists or files automatically.

PC|SCHEMATIC Automation can interface with PLC I/O tools, wire numbering tools, label systems, send files for component ordering systems, edit PLC data via Excel, import and export the standard CAD formats DWG and DXF, and update all types of lists automatically. Furthermore the program supports practically any database format, so that it can work with the database format used in your company.

Time saving electrical CAD software PC|SCHEMATIC

Our solution saves 80% time
To make it possible for existing and new users to get started quickly, PC|SCHEMATIC – and its distributors – offers a consulting service, consisting of an analysis of the already existing electrical documentation. Based on this analysis, the optimal set of subdrawings, models and project templates can be effectively created. This also has the consequence that new users can get started creating complete electrical documentation projects really quickly.

In larger companies, this way of working might result in that just one single person needs to be pointed out as the main responsible for creating the company subdrawings, while the others in future almost only will need to create documentation by dragging templates and subdrawings into projects. Experiences from the industry suggest that the documentation time can be reduced by up to 80 percent.
