WSCAD is an advanced computer aided design package for electronic and electrical design. This versatile electrical engineering cad package is ideal for all types of electrical engineering design, planning and project control involving electronics, electrical and commercial electric service design. WSCAD is modular structure, there fore you are able to start with basic - version and, at a later time, expand it to a higher-version (Compact or Professional) with more feature. Drawings that have been made with lower version are fully compatible with higher versions.
The three software modules of WSCAD are built upon each other containing a tried and tested range of functions.
The Basic version is particularly suitable for commissioning, when the planning itself was already completed and no more major alterations are anticipated. It is equally well suited to the creation of smaller and less extensive projects.
The Compact version is often found in the maintenance department. The strength of the Compact version is in the adaptable circuit design, such as when an installation or machine already exists and needs modifications. In addition, this version is especially suitable for the creation of diagrams for small to medium-sized projects. Various automatic functions are available, such as cross-referencing, terminal charts, numbering and contact mirroring.
The Professional version is used in the planning, development and documentation of new projects. Here the user has at his disposal an extensive range of powerful online and monitoring functions which are indispensable in the creation of new projects. Errors are eliminated from the beginning and productivity is increased. It does not matter with which version you will start with. There are no restrictions on upgrading from lower module to a higher one. Single-user licences or network licenses with common access to project data, database and libraries, or combinations of these, offer a system-oriented method of working.
Make a bill of material, and bought out parts with manufacturer’s part number.
Store details of the project and the customer.
Maintain an overall view of all your schematics lists and project documentation
Record changes which occur after project completion.
Get a quick overall view of allconnections to any device.
The cable plan makes it easier to connect complex cabling
Useful for wire men and electricians; Cable list with information about connection points
Use the automatic functions and the online connector manager to monitor pin connections.
To avoid mistakes during the wiring of the control cabinet, utilize this list to make the connections.
Automatically generated terminal listings are useful for troubleshooting and commissioning.
Create electrical installation plans for buildings, e.g. device cabling with reports.
Create or import drawings or pictures, which will not be included within an automatic
report e.g. Function blocks or diagrams.
Feature for feature, WSCAD Professional matches other electrical design software costing up to five times
as much. Purchase WSCAD Basic or Compact, and upgrade later for just the difference in cost.
