Solid Edge Wiring Design

Achieve first-pass success in electromechanical design using industry-proven tools that simulate and verify electrical behavior as a design is created. Solid Edge Wiring Design provides rapid and intuitive electrical circuit design with built-in verification and design rule checks to validate designs.

Solid Edge Wiring Design provides rapid and intuitive electrical circuit design using industry-proven tools that simulate and verify electrical behavior as the design is created. The graphical design environment creates wiring schematics via an intuitive user interface and built-in libraries of electrical symbols, components, and simulation models. More than 10,000 popular industrial parts support the automated selection of parts, terminal plugs and seals for each connector.

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

Solid Edge Wiring Design automates 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 enables data to flow seamlessly between the 2D schematic capture application 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. Design electrical systems while simultaneously collaborating with mechanical design to optimize product design.

Advanced design automation

Built-in intelligence automates many design tasks, updating diagram, device and wire index tables as changes are made. Streamlined graphical rendering and manipulation produce high-quality diagrams and allow easier object location and interaction. Autoroute capabilities automate routing for a full signal path, including junctions.

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.

Product design optimization

Facilitate the accommodation of space reservation, clash detection and hazard avoidance in the mechanical domain. Potential problems, such as short circuits, are highlighted.

Cabinet panel layout

Accurate physical layout and schematic drawings for successful cabinet panel design. Includes a configurable and reusable layout design capability, which can be used in the preparation of 2D industrial control panels.

Data-compatible integrations

Full data compatibility for customers using Siemens Capital and/or Teamcenter applications. Transfer 3D designs and bill of materials (BOM) from wiring design to PLM or use data derived from Solid Edge Wiring Design in Capital enterprise solutions.

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. With intuitive interfaces, both Solid Edge Wiring and Harness Design solutions come with video tutorials, how-to documents, support from an active user community and an online training course.
