High level of integration, including automation
For more than 25 years, WSCAD has been offering fast and reliable Electrical CAD solutions with an outstanding price-performance ratio, covering the entire electrical engineering design and documentation process. Customers range from large and medium-sized enterprises, engineering services providers to self-employed engineering consultants. They all rely on WSCAD professional tools for electrical engineering to design machinery, plants & equipment or building automation.
WSCAD SUITE integrates six different engineering disciplines: electrical engineering, cabinet engineering, piping & instrumentation diagrams, fluid power engineering, building automation and electrical installation – integrated and based on one central database.
Add-ons complement the WSCAD SUITE and achieve the highest current level of automation
Specifically tailored to the needs of installers and craftsmen, the ElektroHandwerk (electrical trades) combines the most important functions of the WSCAD SUITE for electrical installations as well as schematics and distribution plans.
With over one million symbols and part data from more than 125 manufacturers, wscaduniverse.com is by far the largest E-CAD data library on the market and the only one that supports both WSCAD and EPLAN* users alike. The use and provision of data is free for users and the manufacturers of parts and equipment.
Coordinated services under the umbrella of Global Business Services assist and support companies and users with the optimal application, use and integration of the WSCAD solution in the enterprise IT and processes.
Six disciplines, one core, one database
The integrative approach of the WSCAD SUITE enables cross-disciplinary and continuous and consistent planning and documentation of electrical equipment, machinery and building automation from a single source and software platform.
The WSCAD SUITE is modular and scalable and can be licensed based on actual requirements. It is suitable for large and medium-sized companies as well as design consultants and the self-employed. It is intuitive and easy to use and fast in performance and handling. At about 30 to 50 percent of the procurement and maintenance costs of other comparable solutions on the market, it is also inexpensive and very attractively priced for approximately the same range of functionality.
The symbols and part data are located centrally in an extensive database included with the software. Individual smaller or project-related data pools can also be created. Over one million symbols and part data from more than 125 manufacturers are available in wscaduniverse.com under the web address with the same name. The use and provision of data is free for users and the manufacturers of parts and equipment.
Since all symbols are interlinked, no duplicate entries for labels and function texts are required, and changes in one discipline are immediately reflected in all other disciplines. That saves time, prevents errors and improves the quality of the results. Even installers and service technicians on site can switch to the generated documentation in the form of intelligent PDFs from fluid diagrams to electrical wiring schematics as well as the control cabinet diagrams by simply clicking on a symbol. No additional viewers are required.
Thanks to open interfaces, the integration with enterprise PDM / PLM and ERP systems is easily achieved. For example, current cost estimates and price overviews are possible even during the prototyping phase.
All data generated with the WSCAD SUITE are available for the production of wire and cable bundles, label printing, mounting plates and cabinet doors on NC machining centers.
High level of automation: macros and macro variants speed up the design process; the Project Wizard generates complete plans across multiple plan pages as if guided by a magic hand, and freely selectable configurators can be used to make the WSCAD SUITE automatically generate plans via the Automation interface (AI) without requiring any user interaction. At the touch of a button, the WSCAD software creates comprehensive documentation that is fully compliant with directives and standards, including individual checklists and acceptance protocols.
