WSCAD SUITE X PLUS is the forerunner version of our current E-CAD software WSCAD ELECTRIX. Customers who are currently still working with WSCAD SUITE X PLUS and have a current maintenance contract will continue to be served as part of the maintenance contract. However, the software will no longer receive any further functional enhancements.

To ensure that you always benefit from the latest technologies and improved performance, we strongly recommend switching to our innovative and user-friendly ELECTRIX E-CAD software. Compared to SUITE X PLUS, WSCAD ELECTRIX not only offers a variety of new features, but also up to 100% faster performance in terms of response time and processing speed. Thanks to the Search & Click function, ELECTRIX users design on average 30% faster than with WSCAD SUITE X PLUS and also benefit from a newly developed editor and the new and extended interfaces to our partner companies such as WAGO, Scneider Electric, PHOENIX CONTACT or Weidmüller.

Please note: As of 1 January 2024, we have discontinued support for Internet Explorer for all WSCAD products. It is no longer possible to import data from directly into the SUITE.

Background: Microsoft discontinued support for Internet Explorer in June 2022. Internet Explorer has been disabled on Windows systems since the beginning of 2023. For security reasons, Microsoft advises against using Internet Explorer.

If you want to download data from after 1 January 2024, you must use an up-to-date browser, download the data in the browser and then import it manually into WSCAD SUITE. Or you can migrate from SUITE to ELECTRIX and save yourself all the effort.
Users of the WSCAD ELECTRIX software need not worry, because ELECTRIX does not use Internet Explorer, but supports modern browsers.

Set new standards in productivity and performance with WSCAD ELECTRIX.
Upgrade to WSCAD ELECTRIX now to continue using the world’s largest E-CAD article database directly in the software and benefit from numerous other functions.

What advantages does WSCAD ELECTRIX offer compared to SUITE?

  • Improved stability, performance and speed
  • 30% faster design with Search & Click methodology
  • New editor, including mouse-over function and so much more
  • Data compatibility with WSCAD SUITE – you can continue to use 100% of your WSCAD SUITE projects
  • Data compatibility with DXF/DWG
  • New and improved interfaces: Siemens TIA Portal, PHOENIX CONTACT PROJECT complete, WAGO smartDESIGNER, Weidmüller, and many more.

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.

Speed up electrical schematics planning with Search & Click

New info linker symbols

Optimise your building automation design with the new Info-Linker symbols! View data points in the Building Automation (BA) schematic and in any other schematic pages, such as Electrical Engineering (EE) schematics. You can now display the information from the linked symbols without having to place the info linker and symbol on the same page. Simply link the info-linker by entering the device designation. This way, you can now create condition graphs, flow charts, function charts, etc. in accordance with the newly structured VDI 3814 guideline.

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.

Transparent 3D view for the control cabinet design

In the 3D view, the control cabinet can now be switched to transparent. This makes it even easier to see whether minimum clearances have been kept. It avoids errors that would otherwise only become apparent after the manufacturing process.

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!

Precisely assign user rights

Defining individual access rights to every user gives you control over what users can do in WSCAD ELECTRIX. This improves data security and increases the efficiency of the overall engineering process. In ELECTRIX user rights management got even better!
