Electrical CAD / SchemELECT
Developed in partnership with experts in the electrical field, SchemELECT is software dedicated to Engineering Departments, Maintenance Services and New Construction for industrial Electricity.
+ Industrial electricity
The SchemELECT software allows the complete creation of electrical projects and drawings:
- electrical drawing for power supply
- electrical drawing for power circuit
- electrical drawing for control
- PLC drawing with IO definition
- Automatic management of crossed references
- Automatic numbering of wires, terminals and cables
- Terminal blocks, connectors and cable drawings
- Cabinet layout
- Lists of cables, wires
- Bill of materials
- Labels for symbols, cables, wires, terminals
- Industrial drawings
With more then 20 years experience, the schematic software SchemELECT delivers its aims: reliability, ergonomics and open to other software.
With many auto checking processes, SchemELECT helps you to eliminate errors during the design layout cycle: short circuit tests, tests of polarities, cross-references, uniqueness of names...
According to your quality chart, SchemELECT manages indexes of page modifications too.
Compatibility with standards
SchemELECT is open to standard tools with graphic format which reads or writes DWG™, DXF™, MI™ , PDF™ , HTML™, Meta File. The databases can be in ASCII files or linked by ODBC™ with Oracle™, Access™, SQL server™... All theses reports can be read with the usual table editor (Excel™,...) or inserted into the project. The schematic pages follow the different norms: CEI, JIS, ANSI, DIN, BS. SchemELECT is available on the different Microsoft™ platforms and can be set to standalone or in a network configuration.
SchemELECT is a part of the range of products designed by FTZ. So, you could generate the loop diagrams and communicate with SchemPID software dedicated to P&ID piping and instrumentation diagrams (valve, pump, tank...).
SchemELECT can be linked with SchemEXPLORER to manage the projects too.
Automatic processes like the connection cuts for example, are also available.
Standard schematic diagrams can be converted into cabling / wiring diagrams automatically or manually. Thanks to this choice, the user is able to set his own connection order.
Frame and symbol editions are possible and can be customized thanks to specific attributes.
A translation function is included in this module to convert texts according to your own dictionary or to many standards.
A multi-project management is proposed to improve the organization of big businesses. Thanks to complete transparency, you can insert cross-references and line transfers between different projects as if you were in them.
+ Crossed references
+ Wire numbering
+ Terminal blocks and Cables
This representation is used to model the installation through block diagrams, by defining different locations and cable routes.
The type, section and length of your cable routes can also be processed at this stage.
The combination with the graphics editor gives the means to design complex and intelligent diagrams in order to clarify various location layouts.
Terminal blocks are automatically processed. A wide range of input data as well as design settings is definable to match your conception with such an advanced process.
A "Go to" function is used to navigate from an annotation to its symbol in schematics.
Different kinds of material lists, such as connections, wires, etc... can be extracted and printed.
+ Bills of material
+ Cabinet layout
Different kinds of view are proposed such as the section particularly useful to adjust in 3D the position of the material.
Measure functions can be easily used in any direction thanks to 3D controls and views.
Cabinet & Cabling modules used together give to designers the means to wire various components within the cabinet.
Wires/cables are automatically selected according to the scheme characteristics and SchemELECT controls the cable duct filling. You can also insert wires between panels and define the routes.
+ PLC interface
For your frames, you could use your own logo with different formats (DWG™, DXF™, BMP™, JPEG™, PNG™, TIFF™...) and manage cross references as your usual method.
All libraries could be customized and allow you to start quickly your full projects : schematic, terminal blocks, numbering, bill of materials, cabinet layout, reports.
+ Macro language
With integrated functions of SchemELECT macro-language , you can also develop your own electrical configurators from your own algorithms:
- Automatic schematic creation
- Automatic creation of the cabinet and its components
- Automatic creation of BOM
The HMI can be defined either with SchemELECT tools or with your own tools: software specifications, AccessTM, VBATM ...
The FTZ specialists can assist you in consulting and development of these configurators.
+ Instrumentation / Interconnections
With the Consulting Module, the user can plot intern data or view, but changes are limited to the project.
The SchemPID module processes your Piping and Instrumentation diagrams (valves, pumps, etc).
With specific libraries of SchemELECT you can model your pneumatic and hydraulic diagrams.
