AutoCAD Electrical


Electrical CAD for controls and schematic design

Autodesk® AutoCAD® Electrical design software is AutoCAD for electrical controls designers. It includes all the functionality of Autodesk® AutoCAD® software plus a complete set of electrical CAD features, including comprehensive symbol libraries and tools for automating electrical design tasks.

The logical choice for electrical controls design

Autodesk® AutoCAD® Electrical software helps controls designers to create and modify electrical control systems. Automated tasks and comprehensive symbol libraries help to increase productivity, reduce errors, and provide accurate information to the manufacturing floor. Stay ahead of the competition with AutoCAD Electrical software which, with added tools on top of Autodesk® AutoCAD® software, offers significant productivity gains by automating many of the complex tasks associated with creating accurate, industry-standard electrical control systems.

Facing these issues?
> Creating electrical controls designs with generic software is limiting your productivity.
> Errors are reaching the shop floor and causing delivery delays.
> Components are not being ordered because of inaccurate bills of materials (BOMs).
> Manually adding electrical controls information into 2D or 3D mechanical designs is tedious.
> Sharing designs with downstream users is error-prone and difficult.
> Designers are spending too much time manually generating reports.
> Use of design standards is inconsistent.
> Designers are unable to easily find and reuse designs.
