SEE Electrical proposes numerous modules to better meet your needs for complete project execution. The most popular module is the 2D enclosure design module, described below.
The module enables simple design of 2D electrical cabinets and panels. We recommend this module. It can be combined with the Standard or Advanced configuration.
It automatically links the symbols inserted in the electrical diagrams with those inserted in the electrical cabinet. Electrical apparatus is inserted directly from the list, which contains all the parts used in the project.
The components inserted into the electrical cabinet are correctly scaled, taking width and height data from the apparatus catalogue.
Depending on individual needs, design can start with basic diagrams or cabinet development.
The various measuring, dimensioning and CAD functions significantly support the creation of professional technical documentation.
Apparatus can be placed on rails. Cable trays can be inserted into the cabinets.
This is a module for the efficient design of electrical cabinets in 3D.
This module allows you to professionally design control panels and cabinets in a 3D environment. The module requires a Standard or Advanced configuration.
The application uses SEE Electrical’s apparatus catalogue to select the mounting plate and enclosure housing and insert rails and cable trays.
The components used in the electrical diagrams are available for use in the 3D design. The designer inserts 3D symbols on mounting rails, mounting plates or in free mode. A collision check and consistency check with the electrical schematic is carried out.
In addition, the module allows for the distribution of cables including the calculation of their length. The software also offers hole-punching drawings and export of hole-punch files to CNC tools.
This CAD module is used to draw electrical installations on building backgrounds (Available with the software at any level).
It is easy to use and includes libraries of electrical symbols as well as architectural elements.
It has the ability to create its own symbols and to insert text anywhere in the drawing.
Provides a simple way to implement your own design ideas.
Allows automatic rotation of symbols in relation to walls, easy copying and labelling.
The built-in editor allows building plans to be loaded. Available formats are DWG/DXF/DXB/PDF.
Walls, doors, windows and other objects can be easily inserted from the symbol database, allowing the user to easily create building plans.
Varied lists containing cabling and component information can be generated and exported to Excel sheets.
The application allows the automatic calculation of room areas as well as the insertion of cable trays and routing with the calculation of cable and wire lengths.
Single line diagrams are automatically generated from the installation plans created and circuits declared.
The module is used to exchange data between application files and Excel worksheets.
This saves the designer data entry time: The contents of the project’s technical database can be edited in Excel sheets and then imported into SEE Electrical.
This module provides the ability to edit data in the project without access to electrical CAD software.
The module enables the generation of PDF drawings, with navigation between cross-references and hyperlinks. It is possible to create a multilingual document and a watermarked file.
The module provides the ability to create electrical diagrams that comply with the IEEE standard, which is applicable in the USA and Canada.
The module supports the redrawing of scanned electrical documentation.
Two types of functionality are available, which can be used together or separately.
1. Basic level – Processing of scanned documentation. Importing multiple drawings into separate diagrams. When symbols are inserted outside the working area, a white field is added. Making changes is quick and easy.
2. Standard level – Recognition of blocks imported from DXF/DWG files. Once the symbol equivalents have been defined, the import of other elements can be carried out intelligently. As a result, navigation will be possible, connections will be numbered and lists will be generated as for normal projects created with SEE Electrical.
– Advanced level – Offers both functionalities.
The module generates electrical diagrams from Excel sheets or Access databases. When similar schemas need to be created in different configurations, the automatic generation module provides considerable time savings. An Access database can be used by the sales department to create a quotation and then to automatically generate schemas.
The “Translation” module provides a database and translation tool. It is possible to translate an entire project into another language at the click of a mouse. If required, texts can be translated individually. In addition, the selection of the code page allows characters from different alphabets to be displayed in the schema at the same time, e.g. Cyrillic and Greek.
The translation database can be accessed while the text is being entered into the drawing, and a double-click adds the text to the database.
The interface allows the documentation created in SEE Electrical to be securely stored and indexed in Solidworks Enterprise PDM®.
The interface allows the SEE Electrical project to be linked to any PDM-type application.
This module allows the thermal calculation of the switchgear to be carried out.
The Cabinet Layout 2D module is required.
