In order to provide additional functionality, several modules can be added to SEE Electrical. 
Please click hereto discover all these modules

• Windows® 7, 8/8.1, 10
• Minimum Intel® Pentium® 4 or AMD Athlon™ 64 processor (Core i5 or above recommended)
• 2 Gb RAM (4 GB recommended)
• 600 Mb free disk space
• 1280 x 1024 Graphics Card or higher recommended

 

All SEE Electrical (formerly known as Caddy++ Electrical) electrical cad features are easy to use and are dedicated to electrical design:

  • IEEE/ IEC component libraries (draw either IEEE or IEC wiring diagrams).
  • Automatic numbering for components, cables and wires.
  • Cables, terminals, components, etc. automatic generation
  • Cross-references (available contacts, etc.)


With SEE Electrical you can open as many screens as you want and you are able to work across several projects at once. Thanks to the integrated Microsoft ActiveX® interface you can also combine documents from other Windows applications directly into your project structure.
