AutoCAD Electrical Toolset

AutoCAD Electrical

The Electrical toolset is included with AutoCAD. Efficiently create, modify, and document electrical controls systems with an industry-specific toolset for electrical design.

The AutoCAD Electrical Toolset adds electrical design features to help you create, modify, and document electrical controls systems.

  • Create panel layouts, schematic diagrams, and other electrical drawings using specialized tools.
  • Use consistent project standards with drawings organized in a project-based structure.
  • Includes a library of 65,000+ intelligent electrical symbols to support AS, GB, IEC, IEC-60617, JIC, JIS, NFPA, and IEEE standards.

Benefits of the Electrical toolset

In this study, the Electrical toolset boosted productivity by up to 95%,* bringing dramatic time savings to common AutoCAD® electrical design tasks.

In this productivity study, you will see how the Electrical toolset saves time through features including:

  • A simple icon-menu-driven system which includes over 2,000 standards-based schematic symbols.
  • Placing sequential or reference-based numbers on wires and components based on the chosen configuration with automatic ID tag generation.
  • Setting up parent/child relations between electrical component symbols.
  • Commands specifically designed for electrical schematic drawings.
