  • 1Description

This edition of AutoCAD, AutoCAD Electrical 2015 from Autodesk features a collection of tools optimized for electrical engineering projects. It includes all the functionality of AutoCAD software, plus electrical engineering software features such as symbol libraries, bill of materials (BOM) reporting, and PLC I/O design, all of which are employed to make control design faster and more efficient. This copy of the software is a single-user, download license for installation on 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows.

What's New for 2015

PDF Publishing
Enhance documentation with hyperlinked multipage PDF files of your schematic diagrams. Create multipage PDF documents of your project. Cross-reference and device navigation is enabled through intelligent hyperlinks. Bookmarks reflect your project structure, and all drawing text and attributes are searchable
Terminal Strip Export/Import
Export terminal data to an XML file that can be imported into Wago ProServe or Phoenix Contact. Define your terminal strip, spares, and accessories in Wago ProServe Smart Designer or Phoenix Contact Clip Project. With Phoenix Contact, you can save as a 3D STEP file to place the terminal strip in your Inventor assembly
Usability Improvements
Use enhanced themes, table styles, and intelligent Cut, Copy, and Paste commands, as well as Find links. The theme of the AutoCAD Electrical interface can be dark or light, depending on your preference. Table styles control text size, style, and margins on reports. Intelligent cut and copy can place selections of objects onto the clipboard, while paste inserts the selection with automatic updates to tags and wire numbers. Within the Help documentation, the Find link points to a specific icon within the application to help you locate the command
Catalog Browser Previews and Inserts Parts
Insert components into your schematic with the catalog information assigned. Search for catalog items and insert components directly from the Catalog Browser - with a preview of the schematic representations of the part. The Catalog Browser can either be docked or left floating to always remain in view as you work
Edit Parts in Catalog Browser
Add or edit catalog items and assign symbols and 3D parts to the catalog database. Edit, add, or remove records in the catalog database from a single tabular interface. Assign multiple symbols as well as a 3D part for interoperability with Inventor 3D CAD software
Inventor Parts Integration
Add the Electrical Catalog Browser to Inventor 3D CAD software 2015 during installation to access 3D electrical parts. This enhancement supports mechatronics. Insert 3D electrical parts into an Inventor assembly from the same catalog as your electrical design to complete your digital prototyping solution

Electrical Documentation

Automatic Report Generation
Run multiple reports with a single command. Built-in tools automatically create and update reports that cover bills of materials (BOMs), from/to wire lists, PLC I/O, terminal plans, cable summaries, and cross-referencing. Sort and filter data to create customized reports that display only relevant information. Place reports into an electrical drawing as a smart table object that can be easily updated later or saved to a file
Customer and Supplier Collaboration
Easily exchange data with customers or suppliers in native DWG file format. Edit and view electrical drawings in any DWG-compatible program, such as AutoCAD design and documentation software or AutoCAD LT 2D drafting software. When electrical drawings are edited by outside sources, AutoCAD Electrical can create a report of any modifications
File and Project Organization
Create folders and subfolders within an electrical drafting project, and easily move DWG files into those folders. Create as many folders and folder levels as you want
Flexible Drag-and-Drop File Organization
Drag and drop files within an electrical drafting project. This capability gives you the flexibility to change the order of files, move files into folders, and move folders into subfolders. This feature does not rename your files or update pin information

Electrical Panel Layout

Smart Electrical Panel Layout Drawings
Extract a list of schematic components for placement into electrical panel layout drawings. Choose the panel location and a physical representation of each device to be inserted into the layout. The software automatically creates a link between the device and its representation. Any changes to the electrical schematic or panel representation update the other nonschematic items, such as wire ducts
Terminal Design
Manage and edit terminals and jumpers to help save time and help increase the accuracy of electrical control designs. Use the simplified Terminal Strip Editor interface. Insert spare terminals or make modifications, such as reversing the left and right wiring information for a terminal. Automatically generate graphical terminal strip layouts based on schematic design information for use in electrical panel layout drawings or terminal plans. Generate these terminal strips in a graphical or table format. The software automatically populates your terminal strip layouts with the wiring information for each side of the strip
Marking Menus
Replace the typical right-click context menu with marking menus for commands. Marking menus are context sensitive, based on the type of object you select, and provide quick access to the most commonly used functions for that object, including:
  • Delete Component
  • Edit Component
  • Scoot
  • Align

This interaction shortens editing time and improves productivity when creating or editing electrical panel board layouts

Electrical Schematic Design

Auto Wire Numbering and Component Tagging
Assign sequential or reference-based numbers on all wires and components automatically. AutoCAD Electrical assigns unique wire numbers and component tags in your electrical schematic drawings based on the chosen configuration, reducing the time spent tracking design changes and reducing errors. If no clear spot is available, the software searches for a clear spot and automatically draws a leader back to the wire
Circuit Design and Reuse
Dynamically generate rules-based electrical control circuits based on components, wiring, ratings, and catalog data. Circuit Builder gives you the information to make good electrical engineering decisions that are also environmentally sustainable. Create electrical schematic designs based on wire material type, ambient temperature, maximum voltage drop, and more. Improve productivity by building commonly used circuits once, and then saving them to be reused later
Real-Time Error Checking
Match and remove costly errors before the build phase begins. AutoCAD Electrical monitors and alerts you to potential design errors as they occur by constantly comparing the requested changes with the current project. Items such as duplicated wire numbers and component tags are flagged during this error-checking process. Missing or incorrect wire numbers are difficult to identify and can cause real problems downstream; these alerts help to ensure a smooth design process before the electrical schematic gets passed on to manufacturing

Electrical Controls Design

Real-time Coil and Contact Cross-Referencing
Reduce the risk of too many contacts assigned to a relay, and minimize time spent manually tracking assignments. AutoCAD Electrical sets up parent/child relationships between coils and contacts. It keeps track of how many contacts are assigned to any coil or multicontact device and alerts you if you exceed the limit
PLC I/O Drawings from Spreadsheets
Define a project's I/O assignments in a spreadsheet program to create a comprehensive set of PLC I/O drawings. Automatically generate drawings per the drawing configuration, complete with ladders, I/O modules, addresses and description text, and component and terminal symbols connected to each I/O point. This report exports to the PLC (programmable logic controller) program, virtually eliminating the need to create those drawings manually
Standards-Based Libraries
Use component libraries from some of the industry's most popular vendors to create standards-based electrical designs that comply with industry requirements. The software includes a manufacturer database of more than 650,000 components and symbols, such as switches, push buttons, relays, contacts, and terminals. In addition, choose from an extensive library of pneumatic, hydraulic, and P&ID devices. Compete globally with support for international standards that help you meet your geographic design requirements. Supported standards include:
  • AS
  • GB
  • IEC
  • NFPA
  • JIC
  • JIS
