Complete designs faster and with higher quality by enabling electrical engineers to work collaboratively with their mechanical and software engineering peers, saving time and eliminating errors during industrial electrical design.
Use an integrated environment to perform the central task in industrial electrical design, the creation of 2D electrical schematics.
Create 2D schematic drawings and interruption points, display and use cross-references, select catalog parts and leverage rules-based engineering to automate industrial electrical design tasks.
Use a comprehensive set of tools for integrated, fast and efficient 3D cabinet layout design.
Select, place and move components, measure clearances and directly navigate to and from the 2D schematics within your 3D industrial electrical designs.
Enable electrical engineers to create functional, model-based industrial electrical designs.
Define function, location and product structures, create relationships between objects, and reuse and combine data between objects to automate industrial electrical design processes.
Access data from upstream processes as input to design for more efficient work.
Incorporate data inputs in modeled form by importing mechanical assembly data, factory layouts, piping and instrumentation diagrams (P&ID) and spreadsheet lists.
Communicate completed industrial electrical designs to automation engineering so that the software can be written for the machine.
Use direct integration of programmable logic controller (PLC) software and hardware in the data model and export this data, without the need for a program, directly to Siemens TIA Portal software. Create signal lists and hardware information for 3rd-party systems with custom reports and spreadsheet data export.
Eliminate non-value, repetitive activities such as the definition of reference designations, symbolic names of signals or even the creation of schematics, using automation with design rules.
Reduce errors and give electrical engineering more time to focus on creating value and driving innovation within industrial electrical design.
Provide manufacturing with the information they need to build the production system once the industrial electrical design is complete.
Use standard reports that are provided out-of-the-box to make the documentation complete, including terminal diagrams, bill of materials and cable diagrams.
Improve the quality and consistency of your industrial electrical designs by reusing them as design templates.
Store the contents of a design and insert them into new designs as complete functions instead of single devices or symbols. Expand the functionality to PLC software using automation design tools.
Electrical engineering has evolved, quite disruptively. NX software helps you deal with the disruption from drawing-oriented electrical schematic creation to electrical engineering as an integrated domain in mechatronic engineering.
