Building electrical design

CADS Electric is an effective solution for building information modelling (BIM) -based building electrical design. CADS Electric is the most extensive software on the market for the design and documentation of electrical systems of properties. In addition to electrical, telecommunications and data systems, you can generate centre and circuit schemas efficiently, among other things.

CADS Electric is the most extensive design system on the market, and it includes the design of electrical, telecommunications and data systems in either 2D or 3D format (BIM). With CADS Electric, you can also design distribution networks as well as system, centre and circuit schemas. This is all CAD software you need!

Efficiency and quality with data management

CADS Electric is a database-based design software solution that easily enables many users to work on the same project at the same time. The shared design data is managed in real time, and everyone stays on track about the current status of the project. You can use the data accumulated in the project during its different phases. Data management enables faster and more efficient design and editing. Efficiency and quality.

In CADS Electric Pro, you can start designing wherever you want, or wherever you can with the available initial data. Start designing with an installation drawing, a centre schema, a circuit schema or a database, whichever suits you best. Thanks to the centralised data management, the same piece of information can exist in several places, and changes made in one place are automatically relayed to all occurrences of the edited objects throughout the project in different layers and other documents.



Versatile drawing and editing functions 

CADS Electric has versatile and automated drawing and editing functions that make design more efficient and offer a meaningful and motivating tool for the user.

The system automatically takes care of many routine drawing and editing tasks, which frees a considerable amount of the designer’s time for the actual design work.

BIM and 3D

You can use certified data model software to design in 2D/3D. You can use the IFC models of the other participants in the design process. Ensure quality in design with real-time collision detection. Specify unlimited additional information that you can transfer to the other parties in the project through data models.

Project-specific data management

The real-time multi-user environment makes centralised management of the project’s design data possible. In CADS Electric, the same information can be found in different documents. A change made to data in one place is updated in real time to all of its occurrences. You can also mass edit the project’s design data efficiently and generate the project’s reports from centralised information.

Circuit schemas

You can use the design data already created in the project for circuit schemas, or you can use design data produced elsewhere for the same purpose. When you start designing circuit schemas, you can use all of the devices and cables already created for the project. You can also generate circuit schemas by circuit from the database or an Excel file.

Document management

With CADS DM, you can manage all of the project’s documents. It allows you to manage document files of all types in different formats and customise data fields to suit your needs. You can control label and revision information and create the desired rights for different users. You can use batch jobs to update the project’s lists.
