Autodesk® AutoCAD® Electrical is AutoCAD® software for controls designers, purpose-built to create and modify electrical control systems. It contains all the functionality of AutoCAD, plus a comprehensive set of tools for automating control engineering tasks, such as building circuits, numbering wires, and creating bills of material. AutoCAD Electrical provides a library of more than 700,000 electrical symbols and components, includes real-time error checking, and enables electrical and mechanical teams to collaborate on designs built with Autodesk® Inventor® software. AutoCAD Electrical offers control engineers a competitive edge by helping save hours of effort, so they can spend more time innovating.
AutoCAD Electrical Features
- Electrical-specific productivity tools—Automated tasks, terminal management tools, project
manager, and electrical-specific drafting commands can help electrical controls designers increase
design accuracy and productivity.
- Automatic error checking—Automatic wire numbering, component tagging, and coil and contact
cross-referencing help to significantly reduce the risk of costly mistakes associated with manual
- Standards-based libraries—Controls designers can promote design consistency with a
comprehensive library of more than 650,000 standard components and support for multiple
international standards, including AS, JIC, IEC, NFPA, JIS, and GB.
- Automatic report generation—AutoCAD Electrical automatically generates a broad range of
reports, from bills of materials (BOMs) and from/to wire lists to terminal plans and cable summaries.
- Mechatronics product design—Electrical and mechanical teams can work collaboratively on
designs. Bidirectional interoperability with Autodesk® Inventor® Professional software helps users
create more accurate 2D and 3D mechatronics designs in less time.
