Solid Edge Wiring Design

Solid Edge Wiring Design tools provide rapid and intuitive electrical circuit design using industry-proven tools that simulate and verify electrical behavior as the design is created.

The graphical authoring environment creates wiring diagrams via an intuitive user interface and built-in intelligent libraries of electrical symbols, components, and simulation models. A robust starter library with more than 4000 popular industrial parts is included.

Simulation highlights design challenges such as short and open circuits, voltage drop, fusing, and wire sizing errors.

The tools automate standards-based diagram generation and cross-referencing for multi-sheet schematics, and automatically generate reports for wires, connectors and devices used in a design.

Streamline design process

Solid Edge Wiring Design is an electromechanical solution that allows for data to flow seamlessly between the 2D wiring and 3D MCAD domains, allowing teams to understand and trace the impact of design decisions across domains.

ECAD/MCAD collaboration

Electromechanical design as it’s meant to be, enabling fully functional and manufacturable electromechanical designs created in a seamless ECAD/MCAD environment. A tight collaborative loop between ECAD/MCAD domains provides a cohesive design process, resulting in fewer rebuilds, increased quality and faster time to market.

Advanced design automation

Built-in intelligence automates many design tasks, updating diagram, device and wire index tables as changes are made.

Virtual prototyping

Ensures circuits perform to meet customer requirements using strong simulation capabilities that enable virtual prototyping of electrical circuits. Full electromechanical digital mockups remove the need for costly prototypes and enable rapid evaluation of changes.

Design validation

Achieve first-pass success in electromechanical design using built-in verification and design rule checks to validate design, eliminating errors faster and earlier in the work flow.

Teamcenter integration

Leverage data-driven solution that shares information with Teamcenter for product lifecycle management (PLM) processes. Transfer 3D designs and bill of materials (BOM) from wiring design to PLM.

Mature tool

Based on mature and productive schematic design tools from Mentor Graphics, now a Siemens business. Developed for the mainstream market.

Solid Edge Wiring Design and Solid Edge Harness Design products can be used individually or deployed together for a complete electrical design solution from design to manufacture.

Wiring and Harness Design in Solid Edge

In a world of ever increasing electrical complexity, being able to accurately document and design your whole product has become a real challenge. Non-intelligent 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.
