Sub Title: Coping with ever-more complex electro-mechanical products despite less time to develop the design schematics representing them
Developing an electrical system is not as simple as plugging in a wire here and adding a connector there. Engineers must design the systems to meet specific requirements. For instance, a requirement often exists that wires must be sized to satisfy specific power needs while maintaining signal integrity. Components and connectors must be selected that comply with ever-increasing industry standards and regulations.
Once wiring diagrams are complete, many systems require the wires to be physically routed through the mechanical product, demanding close coordination with mechanical engineers to ensure that wires fall within necessary length specifications. Developing these systems becomes a highly constrained, exceedingly collaborative and very iterative process.
This seminar will demonstrate tools that enable the creation of wiring diagrams, verify circuit behavior and validate the electrical integrity using industry-proven Solid Edge Wiring Design software. This graphical authoring environment provides an intuitive user interface. Built-in intelligent parts libraries and how these are used to drive simplicity and automation in the designs will also be shown.
Among the topics that will be discussed:
- Creation and navigation of wiring diagrams
- How to use simulation to highlight design challenges such as voltage drop, fusing and wire sizing errors
- Automating standards-based diagrams
- Cross-referencing for multi-sheet schematics
- Automatic generation of reports and tables for documentation requirements
