SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic Professional

  • SOLIDWORKS® Electrical Schematic is a powerful, easy-to-use suite of collaborative, schematic design tools that help drive the rapid development of embedded electrical systems for equipment and other products.

    SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic Professional gives you all the power of  Schematic Standard plus additional advanced capabilities to increase the speed and accuracy of the electrical systems design. Users can create and modify PLC drawing configurations, report templates, and design rules.

    SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic Professional offers the ability to import data configuration and data from Excel®, and work with real-time synchronised unified Bills of Materials (BOMs).

    “We have achieved our business objective of streamlining processes for better business productivity, and in turn, are able to better service our customers.”

    –Marshall Vann, General Manager at PWR

  • Same features as Standard, plus additional advanced automation tools and functionality, including:

    • PLC tools: The Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) management tools automate many PLC wiring design tasks, along with the ability to import PLC data and labels.
    • SOLIDWORKS Enterprise PDM integration: Automated publishing of schematic data, drawings, and reports for archival and revision control.

    A powerful, stress-free, easy-to-use suite of collaborative schematic design tools drives rapid development of embedded electrical systems for equipment and other products.

    • Single line schematic: Electrical system planning tool for creating complex embedded electrical system utilising simple pictorial representations of electrical components and interconnectors.
    • Multiline schematic: Traditional schematic creation tool with a simplified User Interface (UI) optimised for simplification of repetitive tasks
    • 2D cabinet creation: Generate 2D panel representations from an electrical schematic, with 2D outlines of electrical components.
    • Electrical component and symbol library: Extensive library of industry-standard schematic symbols combined with a database of manufacturer parts, to provide an easily customisable and adaptable parts base through easy-to-use import tools.
    • Design and reuse: Suite of integrated tools for intelligent cut and paste, an easy-to-access selection of “favorite” components and circuit design elements, and the ability to reuse non-SOLIDWORKS Electrical design elements through easy-to-use import wizards.
    • Automated terminal drawing creation: Automatically generate terminal drawings based on and synchronised with the real-time design.
    • Report generation: Automatically generate reports based on real-time design database queries, with custom reports possible via integrated custom report creation tools.
    • Automated contact cross-referencing: Electrical contacts are automatically cross referenced in real time and synchronised based on availability and type of contacts from manufacturer-specific components.



    What’s New in SOLIDWORKS 2018

    SOLIDWORKS 2018 provides four new solutions to help you simplify interactions between product development teams and ultimately improve your business. Accelerate product innovation and grow your business with these new processes:


    Complete solution to bring your ideas to market

    For years, companies have survived despite having a separation between their design and manufacturing departments, both by organisation, and by the tools they use. SOLIDWORKS Design-to-Manufacturing Process Solution provides everything you need to bring your ideas to market. Design to final assembly work can now happen concurrently in one seamlessly integrated and managed system.

    The right data, at the right time, for the right people

    Electronic data within organisation needs to be easy to access regardless of the format – from documents and spreadsheets to metadata, processes data, and data from enterprise resource planning. SOLIDWORKS Distributed Data Management (DDM) Process Solution can organise all this data so it is easy to access across many disciplines and departments. It also makes it easy to capture non-electronic data and complex electronic data such as 3D shapes.

    Analysis tools for every step of design

    Great designs are the result of inspiration, perspiration, and hours of hard work. SOLIDWORKS Designer to Analyst Process Solution helps you speed up the complete design cycle. Your engineering and design teams can work together concurrently evolving product designs while validating any changes, and reusing previous analysis information.

    Connect your smart devices to your customers

    Every day products are becoming more complex. As web and app functionalities are added to everything from cars to sunglasses, many companies are looking for intelligent tools that work together so they can design and build the “smart” products today’s markets demand. Recognising this, one of the easiest and fastest ways to achieve a more efficient process when designing connected devices is to use one single, unified environment.


    The arrival of smart manufacturing

    Smart Manufacturing is a term used to describe a connected and seamless flow of intellectual property to all teams involved, from design to manufacturing. The creation of IP involves knowledge-capture early in the design process with intelligence from varied skill sets, such as design, costing, quality, manufacturing, marketing, supply chain.

    In Smart Manufacturing, information is available when it’s needed, where it’s needed, and in the form in which it is most useful. Manufacturing intelligence is built up front to actively integrate the three major components in the development process: design, manufacturing and innovation.

    “Smart Manufacturing is more than ‘integrated’ manufacturing. It also means taking advantage of the rich content contained in the 3D CAD model.”
