Simply compatible

CADS Electric is a byword for compatibility among our customers. Genuine compatibility enables both effective use of old CAD drawing archives and easy cooperation between the different parties involved in the design work.

CADS Electric reads and generates DRW, DWG, DXF and PDF files as well as IFC data models. With the software, you can easily import and export project-specific information, reports and lists, among other things, to Excel for further processing and then back again to CADS Electric.

With the Rasta software, you can import and edit information such as topographic bases or other scanned drawings into CADS Electric, and use them to create designs efficiently. CADS Rasta supports more than 20 raster formats, such as TIFF, BMP and JPEG.

Everything for your data model-based design needs

CADS Electric also offers a comprehensive solution for building information modelling (BIM) -based design. It includes import/export functions for IFC data models. For export functions, CADS Electric has an international certification for the standard IFC 2x3 v2. Thanks to the IFC Import functionality, you can also upload IFC data models by other designers (architect, structures, HVAC) to CADS Electric.

Part of production through system integration

The open interface of the CADS Electric databases makes it possible to connect the CADS Electric Pro to the company’s other information systems, such as the production control system. We have decades of project experience in this with partners from manufacturing industry, among other fields. We also cooperate with the most important PDM/PLM suppliers.

DIALux link connects lighting calculations and CADS

With CADS Electric Pro software’s link to DIALux, you can transfer the information about the space into DIALux in a CADS drawing, and return the results of the lighting design created there including the Isolux diagrams back to CADS Electric.

Different language versions easily

With CADS Electric, you can create project-specific drawings and lists in several languages, if necessary. With the automatic translation functions, you can easily generate different language versions from the drawings. You can also export the texts from the drawings into an Excel file for editing; there they can be translated into the desired language and the translated version imported back into the drawings.
