Resolving Electrical System Changes Collaboratively and Comprehensively
In modern products the design of electrical systems is crucial, and require intense design work by electrical and mechanical engineers working together. Learn more about resolving electrical system changes in our free eBook.
Solid Edge Harness Design bridges the gap between the electrical and mechanical design of a harness in a single solution, allowing engineers to quickly and confidently bring products to market.
Built-in component and symbol libraries, and a powerful parts selector
Solid Edge Harness Design include built-in intelligent libraries for components and symbols that drive the auto-selection of terminals, seals and wires. A powerful parts selector configures and selects terminals, seals and wires for each connector. Connector face views and tables make it easy for designers to determine how wires terminate.
Flexible harness design options: standalone or derived from wiring design
You can design harnesses in a standalone mode, or they can be derived from the wiring provided by Solid Edge Wiring Design.
Powerful reporting for documentation creation
Once a harness is complete, powerful reporting capabilities can be used to generate documentation required for manufacturing, including BOMs and cutting lists. Since fast and accurate information is assured, this can significantly reduce production lead times and prevent manufacturing errors.
Formboard layout capabilities
Harnesses can be drawn non-scaled or full size using formboard layout capabilities.
True ECAD/MCAD collaboration
For a real-world 3D experience involving true ECAD/MCAD collaboration, Solid Edge Harness Design can be fully integrated with the Solid Edge 3D design tools.
Based on mature and productive schematic design tools from Mentor Graphics, now a Siemens business. Developed for the mainstream market.
Solid Edge Wiring and Harness Design tools are integrated with Teamcenter® software, enabling configuration management and revisions to designs.
In a world of ever increasing electrical complexity, being able to accurately document and design your whole product has become a real challenge. Dumb drawing tools and spreadsheets are no longer capable of keeping track of the electrical aspects of your designs. Companies now need a smart electrical design environment, one which can validate and provide automation as you proceed.
