What does SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematics offer?
Versatile and Efficient 2D Electrical Schematic Design
SOLIDWORKS Electrical schematic design capabilities simplify development of embedded electrical systems for machines and other applications, with single-line and multi-line schematic tools for planning your electrical systems.

An integrated library database provides thousands of symbols and more than 500,000 manufactured parts for use in your design, and you can speed up development by copying and reusing common circuit segments within a project or to other projects.
Single User Design for Rapid Schematic Development
SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic Standard's rich symbol libraries, automated report generation, intelligent component and wire numbering and one-click terminal drawings make it faster than ever for you to create electrical schematics with all the required documentation.

SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic Standard is the ideal design tool for improving efficiency for individual users, for a detailed comparison of Schematic Standard and Professional see the matrix below.
Collaborative Tools and Enhanced Automation
SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic Professional expands upon the standard offering with enhanced automation and collaboration tools that allows multiple users to work simultaneously on a project. Schematics Professional also enables collaborative working with any Electrical 3D license

These additions make it the ideal package for team usage, for a detailed version comparison of Schematic Standard and Professional see the matrix below.

Compare Electrical Schematic Products

Single Line Schematics
Planning tool for creating complex embedded electrical systems utilizing simple pictorial representations of electrical components.
Multiline Schematics
Schematic creation tool with a simple user interface optimized to help ease repetitive tasks.
Mixed Schematics
Combine both single-line and multiline drawings on the same schematic, while keeping them connected.
2D Cabinet Creation
Generate 2D panel drawings from an electrical schematic, with 2D outlines of electrical components.
Electrical Component and Symbol Library
Extensive library of industry-standard schematic symbols (IEC, ANSI, JIS, GB) combined with a database of manufacturer parts to provide an easily customizable and adaptable parts database through easy-to-use import tools.
Design Reuse
Suite of integrated tools enables intelligent cut and paste, easy access to a selection of “favorite” components and circuit design elements, and reuse of non-SOLIDWORKS electrical design elements though easy-to-use import wizards.
Automated Terminal Drawing Creation
Automatically generate terminal drawings from real-time design.
Automated Contact Cross-Referencing
Electrical contacts are automatically cross-referenced in real time and synchronized based on availability and type of contacts from manufacturer-specific components.
Advanced Formula Manager
Enhanced formula capabilities for custom naming everything from wires to projects.
SOLIDWORKS Electrical Content Portal
Web-based content portal provides access to an extensive library of manufacturer parts.
Enhanced SOLIDWORKS PDM Connector
Enhanced PDM interface provides electrical and mechanical data management in one system based on proven SOLIDWORKS PDM capabilities.
Report Generation
Automatically generate standard reports based on real-time design database queries.
Report Generation - Customized
Customize the look and content of your reports. Use the integrated SQL editor to display any data from your designs including writing custom Design Rule Checks.
SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematics Professional (with the purchase of SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D) links the schematic to 3D SOLIDWORKS assemblies. This facilitates verification of proper fit of components; planning for the paths and space needs of all wire, cable, and harness routes; and calculation of all wire lengths prior to any assembly.
Common ECAD and MCAD Database
SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematics Professional is bidirectionally linked with the 3D design (with the purchase of SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D) which allows multiuser collaboration in real time between ECAD and MCAD engineers. Sharing a common database ensures consistency and facilitates the creation of a single, unified BOM.
PLC Tools
The Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) management tools automate many PLC wiring design tasks, along with the ability to import PLC data and labels.
Dynamic Connector Tools
Powerful, easy-to-use connector wizard helps simplify the creation, design, and use of electrical connectors including tracking which pins are used.
Real-time Collaboration
Synchronized, bi-directional environment enables multiple users to work on the same schematics project simultaneously for easier project collaboration.
Deferred Update Mode
Enhances schematic performance by minimizing network traffic and deferring real-time project updates. This technology provides a performance boost for large projects and users who work remotely.
Custom Part Library Classifications
Create new folders with custom titles to tailor the parts library.
Excel Automation
Automate aspects of the schematic creation by using Microsoft Excel.
User Rights Management
Enable different levels of access control to various functionality.
