Hi All,

I would like to know the names of the various softwares packages, for 1) Drawing electrical SLDs,schematics,block diagrams etc and 2) Cable engineering ie cable routing, cable length estimation, cable sizing etc.

Also if anybody is actually using these softwares, he can share his experience about the same.

Thanking in advance forthe replies,

Hello easyser!
We use two programs to do it.
1) EPlan - draw SLD and CD and here you can generate a cable list, a terminal list and another things.
2) AutoCAD - for
Cable engineering ie cable routing

I see that EPlan is more easy to use than AutoCad , also it can be used as a mechanical drowing tool

best regards
