elecworks™ 2019:  empowered user experience

PDF Spanish Brochure

 
Trace Software International, with a unique passion for the design of high-performance software solutions for electrical engineering since 1987, announces that elecworks™ 2019 will be available on the market from October.

The management of electrical projects can be time-consuming.  Low levels of customization, long design time, tedious interface, inconsistent documentation, and poor details can be critical factors for any professional in the industry.  In this latest version, the professional CAD software for electrical installations and automation projects offers new features aimed at empowering the user experience even further.
More interactivity, smarter automated features, greater efficiency of use, an even more intuitive design, and higher levels of customization sum up to the existing features, making elecworks™ 2019 a professional software tool that delivers the highest performance.
elecworks™ 2019, therefore, improves the way in which the user can create and modify wiring diagrams, electrical cabinets, components, control systems, and documentation, by simplifying processes without sacrificing quality and precision.

Amongst the most important latest features and improvements:

Increased Interactivity

  • The newest icons of elecworks™ guarantee an even better interactivity. A new interface, compatible with the 4k resolution, has been installed.
  • The new hyperlinks allow the user to navigate the different parts of the project in an easy and practical way,  straight from the report in both format CAD or PDF.

Usability

  • New component view. Now the components can be displayed according to their actual situation, regardless of the situation of the higher-level element.
  • Newest views added to the databases, which avoids creating complex relationships between tables for new reports, and easy customization of existing ones.

Accuracy of details

  • Save time thanks to the addition of new options for ordering data listing. It is possible to display up/down sorting.
  • A new library of cable terminations is now available within elecworks™. In addition, these terminations are selectable from the components, allowing to make a list of the number of the terminations used throughout the project.

 
Design faster and smarter

  • Now it is possible to insert the project macros from the XLS Automation command, reducing the number of macros needed for the automation projects.
  • Also, it is possible to insert macros directly from the menu. This new command allows saving space on the screen, hiding the macros palette and improving ergonomics since there is no need to change PC screen.

 
Higher levels of personalization

  • Now you can customize what information to show in the connection points of the black boxes, parameterizing the values according to the templates and clients.
  • Dynamic connectors can be customized from the shape, break, and position of the connection poles, giving the user more flexibility to create connectors according to needs.
  • Electrical assemblies in the project. The super references are now named Electrical Assembly. In addition, they can be now stored in the project, allowing listings of materials grouped by assemblies or equipment.

 

  • elecworks™ for  PTC can be integrated with  Creo 5.0

Characteristics of an effective electrical CAD tool

Nowadays nothing works in isolation, this being true in our increasingly connected world.  It’s no surprise that, in an engineering environment, one of the ways the effectiveness of an electrical CAD tool is measured by the extent it can interact with other processes and systems. For example, when you use a sophisticated electrical CAD tool, but find you cannot integrate this information to other parts of your product development process, this limits the effectiveness of the system and the ability to meet deadlines.

By taking advantage of the many capabilities of elecworks™ electrical CAD offers, more industries are finding ways of using our solutions as part of their product design processes. By doing so they are getting ahead of their competitors as well as making their own processes more efficient and less time constrained. elecworks™ allows you to use a different kind of workflows according to your engineering needs and further allows the ability for multiple users to concurrently access the same project. This feature ensures more efficiency during the working cycle thus reducing runtimes.

 

Determine your requirements

The first step is to consider your current situation. Do you already have an electrical CAD software that is outdated or underperforming? Or are you a startup business looking to invest in such a tool for the first time? The answer to this question will determine how you start your search.

 

If your current CAD application needs to be replaced, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Which areas of the software, specifically, are resulting in a slow pace of work?
  • Is the current system awkward and expensive when it comes to running on multiple computers?
  • Is the current system too big a cost?
  • What prompted your decision to reinvest in new CAD software?
  • Do the providers of your current software offer reliable support?

 

If you’re new to the business, here’s what you should be asking yourself:

  • Do you want to be productive in a short period of time?
  • Do you have a budget specifically for electrical CAD software or are funds tight?
  • Do you have one or more people that will need to access the CAD software?
  • What computer hardware do you have to hand?
  • Are you going to be designing products that have both electrical and mechanical components?

 

Boost your productivity and optimize your business using our solutions – That’s why at Trace Software International we have the answers to your requirements. It is easy to start and quickly benefit from using our software solutions compared with our competitors such as Eplan.

Cutting-edge photovoltaic solutions

Cutting-edge Photovoltaic Solutions

The Energy Industry is facing serious challenges ahead as the global economy is set to grow four-fold by 2050, more in developing countries such as India and China.

Electrical Energy systems worldwide are changing. There is global demand for new, more cleaner ways of producing electricity and our dependence on it, is increasing and, as environmental concerns become more pressing, so does the focus on the reduction or elimination of greenhouse gas emissions.

While this promises great economic benefits to the standards of living for many people, it also means a huge increase in the use of efficient energy systems and how they are designed to meet the rigorous rules and regulations required.

The fact that Photovoltaics (PV) systems can deliver energy on a large scale at competitive prices means that the industry will grow as economies, countries and technologies develop. As strict regulations continue to change and evolve the industry, the reduction of manufacturing costs and the rate of the design cycle-time increases. New software technologies need to evolve to new heights while remaining safe and reliable – meeting customer demands. To guarantee efficient energy design calculation, quality and safety, Trace Software International is continually improving its current software and innovating new solutions, to meet growing global demands.

A wide range of PV systems are available worldwide. Globally, there are hundreds of companies involved in the manufacturing of PV modules with varying efficiencies and limitations. At the same time, installation costs differ from system to system and from project to project. The PVs in terms of materials and module efficiency, the global PV status and the driving policies, research and development (R&D) activities and funding sources as well as the potential of electricity generation.

The design process for photovoltaic systems has, for the most part, transitioned from a simple electrical equation to a complicated three-dimensional architectural, solar and financial analysis.

Solar PV technology is one of the renewable technologies which has one of the greatest potentials for clean, reliable, scalable and affordable electricity systems for the future and change the way society consumes energy.
