Sécheron acquires FTZ-Panel 3D software

Sécheron is one of the world’s leading suppliers of electrical and electronic components for the DC power supply of rail transport traction systems.

Sécheron has equipped its design offices with the new FTZ-Panel 3D solution for the creation of electrical cabinets for its substations.

FTZ-Panel 3D complements the mechanical part created with SolidworksTM and the electrical diagrams created with SchemELECT. FTZ-Panel 3D uses component and wire lists extracted from the SchemELECT electrical file. FTZ-Panel 3D creates the layout of components in cabinets and the routing of wires in 3 dimensions. This data is then fed to a KOMAXTM machine for automatic wire cutting and labeling. The workshop then recovers the bundles and carries out the wiring of the electrical cabinets.


Olivier D. from Sécheron‘s electrical engineering department testifies:

FTZ-Panel 3D has enabled us to reintegrate cabinet layouts into the electrical design office. The direct link with studies carried out on SchemELECT enables us to set up the various components very quickly and without error.

The wire routing algorithm provides a list of wire lengths, which is then transmitted to the KOMAXTM machine to prepare the bundles for the workshop.”
