Create designs of various electrical circuits to add them to engineering projects of your drawings. Work with multiple available templates or generate a circuit model from scratch. Check the placement of components and analyze the integrity and functionality of models.

PC|SCHEMATIC Automation is a CAD software that provides users, specialized in electrical design, the tools to create and edit partial diagrams and modules, so they can successfully complete their projects. To point it out from the start, this software utility is addressed to engineers and professionals who have a background in electrical design.

The program's GUI is quite complex, and though it comes with manuals and tutorials, it still requires some decent time to accommodate with its menus. The theme customizations are completely missing, while the toolbar menu integrates a wide variety of features. Yet, these features seem to be a bit overcrowded and can confuse even an experienced user.

Next, the embedded functionalities seem endless. Users are being offered an Object Lister, to help them overview the objects present in the documentation, while also being able to edit their attached text or data. You can also select different sets of model data for each individual sub-drawing by simply dragging them into your projects.

Furthermore, this utility auto-updates the tables of contents, labels, cables, terminal details, and components lists. This way, users can focus on the design phase, without having to lose precious time with minor tasks.

All things considered, PC|SCHEMATIC Automation is an important and reliable software for engineers who use CAD on a daily basis. Yes, it does require a powerful end system, and yes, it does use a considerable amount of system memory, but it gets the job done.
