Very VERY specialized
Jose antonio D.
This kind of CAD is used for making the electric diagrams in LARGE projects and you usually only make a lot of CADS at the beginning and end of the project . Since my company can only make one of this large-year-long projects at a time we only used it one or two months in the whole year.
When in comes to billing I never trust automatic systems and I wouldn't recommend anyone to do so, making that function useless to me.
Vorteile: Since most tags are made automatically or with drop down selector lost lines/devices are rare. Since is a CAD software designed ONLY for electric wiring it doesn't have tools for other functions, making it very easy to learn and fast to use.
Nachteile: You can use it for wiring diagrams and that's it. To my knowledge, it has no simulation functions.

An easy to learn CAD replacement for eletrical designs
Kommentare: Overall we are happy with the product. The Visio interface has made it easier for staff to use the product, without having to learn a hole new user interface. The advance features and reports will help us save time and money with our purchasing in the future.
Vorteile: It was fast and easy to learn. They have a good library of how to videos, to get you started. Customer service was able to help fix issues within 24hrs. Being able to use Visio to export PDF and CAD files from my drawings saved time and effort.
Nachteile: It's a set of scripts that are embedded in your Visio document. So you have to deal with any Visio bugs plus any Electra bugs.

Decent software for a decent price
Kommentare: Much easier than hand drawing simple schematics and panel layouts. It is great for in-house panel builds and equipment modifications. I would not want to use it on a large scale project, but it would be a definite go-to for any smaller project.
Vorteile: Affordable, generic and user friendly. Easy to use symbol list and drag/drop symbols make it nice to place anywhere on the drawing. Wiring and connections are fairly straightforward to make on each object.
Lack of symbols/ need to substitute shapes for common objects (drives, communication devices, etc.). Maybe have different symbol packages for different applications?
Terminal blocks are a little cumbersome to use at first, but can be managed.

Kommentare: Drawing a electric diagramm is only a fraction of the work we do and therefore I appreciate the simplicity and easy-to-use-ness of Electra E8: No annual education and an affordable price. The best thing is the automatic update of wire links between the pages and the automatic location of contacts.
Vorteile: That it's integrated in Visio, a very powerful tool and drawings are beside Electra's abilities highly customisable.
Nachteile: The incountable connections behind which may also fail, especially if you try "UNDO" functions.
