Better Instrument and Electrical Designs with CADWorx E&I V2014

By CIOReview | Thursday, March 13, 2014

HOUSTON: Intergraph, a software development and services company has released CADWorx E&I V2014 with new features and enhanced capabilities to create efficient instrument and electrical designs for all plant lifecycle phases. The new release provides a bridge from the CADWorx P&ID application for consistent and efficient electrical detailed engineering.

CADWorx E&I V2014 has an integrated instrumentation and electrical environment that save time and money by improving coordination and reducing implementation costs.

Users can employ this solution in any way they want, they can either input their electrical and instrumentation designs graphically while the system creates rich data content, or they can enter engineering data as the system coordinates and builds graphical output.

CADWorx E&I V2014 comes with an integrated object-oriented database requiring no additional operational expense. This technology allows designers and engineers to fully interact, and makes all data and documents available at all times. This promotes higher levels of consistency, diminishes data loss or corruption, and makes information distribution and sharing easier.

 Another advantage of this CADWorx E&I V2014 is its powerful built-in graphics engine which helps in quick creation of drawings. Users can also import instruments and electrical load data directly from CADWorx P&ID using a Microsoft Access database or a connection to an SQL server or Oracle with this solution.

CADWorx E&I V2014 has a redesigned function for importing and exporting graphic documents that supports both the DXF binary and DWG formats in all versions of AutoCAD 2012 and AutoCAD 2013.  Features of this graphic tool enhance evaluation of geometric objects, automate creation of symbols for blocks and allow users to define custom attributes for loops and loop elements.
