Why Capital Harness Designer Essentials?

Capital Harness Designer Essentials software provides a graphical environment for creating harness and formboard drawings. Its intuitive user-interface makes harness design authoring easy.

Speed harness design and eliminate delays found in traditional design processes

Deploy rapidly to meet your goals
Use individually or deploy it with Capital Wiring Designer Essentials, allowing wiring design data to flow seamlessly into the associated harness designs to reduce effort and minimize the risk of errors. Validate designs using integrated electrical behavior and design automation with part selection.

Design with confidence
Integrate wiring, harness and mechanical computer-aided designs to promote reuse, data coherency and cross-domain collaboration. Automate generation of connector, wire and splice tables. Calculate wire-lengths, include terminal and connector add-on/knockoff values. Integrate wiring and harness design to import wires, connectors and splices. Back-annotate wire lengths. Use built-in intelligent libraries for components and symbols.

Automate reports
Automatically generate harness manufacturing reports, including bills of materials (BOMs) and cutting lists.

Monitor metrics for early correction
Use analysis to catch issues early in the design process where they are least time consuming and expensive to correct.

Automate tasks
Automatically populate connector tables as wires are added, terminals selected and wire tables generated.

Speed up your harness design process
Implement a powerful automated parts selector that automatically configures and selects terminals, seals and wires for each connector, including allowances for add-ons and knockoffs. This eliminates a major source of problems found in the traditional design process.

Generate documentation quickly
Once a harness is complete, use the powerful reporting capabilities to generate the documentation required for manufacturing. The reports are automatically generated directly from the design drawing, ensuring fast and accurate information. This can significantly reduce production lead times and prevent manufacturing errors.

Use flexible formboard layout choices
Employ rapid graphical layout and engineering of harness and formboard designs. Draw harnesses non-scaled or full-sized using form­board layout capabilities.

Improve revenue
Easily deploy the tool into existing processes and environments. Typically, return on investment is achieved in less than 12 months.

Easily scale when needed
Leverage the Capital Essentials suite, which is designed for rapid deployment and easy installation, to achieve dramatic ROI using powerful functionality. Use design and harness tools individually or deploy them together. Allow wiring design data to flow seamlessly into the associated harness designs to reduce effort and minimize the risk of errors. If needed, users can employ seamless upgrades to the full Capital software suite.
