Function lists can be structured according to the VDI guidelines
Plant layouts and control schemes are created using WSCAD Building Automation software, which provides constant transparency and traceability throughout the project: from the creation of symbols from concrete products and manufacturer data from the wscaduniverse.com database, the usesage of certain colors for the plant layout and functional diagrams to the quick analysis of all functions, materials, field devices and cables.
Cabinet design and wire routing
The design and layout of cabinet receives significant support by the Cabinet Engineering discipline : for example by the exact and optimal placement of components, collision checks for objects and the calculation of wire lengths and wire routes already during the planning. Drilling data for bulk goods such as mounting rails, for example, can be configured easily through a dialog and the 3D view provides better spatial awareness of the cabinet.
Circuit planning, overview display and PLC automation
The Electrical Engineering discipline enables engineers and designers to plan, develop and document medium, low and extra-low voltage systems in mechanical engineering and in industrial and building automation. Switchgear and cabinet builders, facility managers, maintenance and service companies as well as industrial electricians deploy this user-friendly software for working with schematics and examining documents.
Installation plans and distribution planning
Designers and engineers involved in building system technology can rely on WSCAD Electrical Installation to design high and low voltage installations, as well as antenna and fire alarm systems – from planning to completion, including the spatial location of equipment in machines, systems and buildings plans. Existing floor plans in PDF or DWG format are imported to scale and all field devices from the plant layout and control diagrams are placed in the floor plans and linked to the existing symbol data of the diagrams.
Pneumatic and hydraulic plants
The planning and documentation of pneumatic and hydraulic machines and plants is performed with the aid of the Fluid Engineering discipline. Fluid Engineering includes all the benefits of the WSCAD Electrical Engineering software, supplemented by special fluid functions. Designers, developers, maintenance engineers and maintenance service companies thus have a comprehensive set of fast, intuitive and efficient tools for the integrated planning and documentation of all mechatronic tasks at hand.
Piping & Instrumentation
Process technology with measuring point management
P&ID (Piping & Instrumentation Diagrams) discipline enables process engineers and designers to easily create piping and instrumentation diagrams. With intelligent linking of measuring points and devices with the schematics and plans of other disciplines, their interactions can be presented logically and checked. Plans in DXF or DWG format are read, augmented with intelligence, and “brought to life”. System errors can be quickly localized and fixed thanks to the unique and sequential numbering of the measuring points.
