Security vulnerabilities in Microsoft Internet Explorer are restricting WSCAD SUITE
From 1st January 2024, you will not be able to load components data from wscaduniverse.com directly into WSCAD SUITE if you use Internet Explorer from.
The full story: Microsoft stopped supporting Internet Explorer in June 2022. Since the beginning of 2023, Internet Explorer has been deactivated on all Windows systems and Internet Explorer 11 has been permanently disabled. Microsoft recommends using another browser for a faster, more secure and more modern web browsing experience. Following this recommendation, as of January 1st 2024 WSCAD will discontinue the support of Internet Explorer for all WSCAD products. From this date on, it will not be possible to import parts data from wscaduniverse.com directly into WSCAD SUITE.
If you still want to download data from wscaduniverse.com after January 1st 2024, you must use a modern browser, download the data with the browser and then import the data manually into WSCAD SUITE. Or you can migrate from SUITE to ELECTRIX and save yourself all the hassle.
Users of the WSCAD ELECTRIX are not affected by Microsoft Internet Explorer. ELECTRIX supports modern browsers and does not use Microsoft Internet Explorer.
Don’t miss out and upgrade to WSCAD ELECTRIX now to keep using the world’s largest electrical CAD database, wscaduniverse.com, directly from your electrical CAD software.
Price increase starting 1st November 2023
If you migrate to WSCAD ELECTRIX after October 31st 2023, you will experience higher migration fees. To prevent this, please upgrade to WSCAD ELECTRIX before 31st October 2023.
On 1st November 2023, we have to adjust the costs for the migration from WSCAD SUITE to ELECTRIX. This adjustment reflects rising costs throughout the product creating process. The price increase applies to customers converting a SUITE perpetual licence with a maintenance contract into an ELECTRIX subscription licence aa well as to users upgrading their SUITE licence to an ELECTRIX perpetual licence. In both cases, having a valid maintenance contract, ensures more favourable terms and conditions.
You can bypass the price increase by requesting a quote and migrating from WSCAD SUITE to ELECTRIX before November 1st 2023. With ELECTRIX you will be able to design faster and avoid higher costs. Please call our Sales Team at +49 (0)8131 3627-400.

Quick search (Search & Click)
Find symbols, components, macros, device designations, menu items and software settings in a flash. You have never designed faster. More information on Search & Click (quick search).
In the video you can see a direct comparison of how Search & Click can be used to speed up electrical design.
Larger design space
The drawing area is now 5x larger than the selected sheet format. It gives you more comfort when designing and placing components. You can now rearrange the components in the schematic more quickly and easily save information and screenshots that are only relevant to the design process.
New interface to Weidmüller WPC
Wire assembly made easy: Transfer wire information to Weidmüller WPC and benefit from efficient and automated assembly through the Wire Processing Center (WPC). This is a simple way to save time and money, reduce errors and increase productivity.
Faster schematic design
By directly typing the dimensions and through automatic snapping points.
Use of up to three individual logos in your schematics
Step up the look of your schematics and make them look more professional. With ELECTRIX you can include up to three different logos in your schematics and individualise your electrical design. For instance you can now use logo of a manufacturer, a customer and a beneficiary. Or simply strengthen your brand presence and increase the visibility of your company!
