AutoCAD Electrical - Essentials

( Duration: 3 Days )

The AutoCAD Electrical - Essentials Training course, covers the indispensable core topics for working with the AutoCAD Electrical software. In this course, Participants learn to use many of the powerful electrical drawing creation tools in the software. They can create schematic drawings (ladder logic and point to point), panel drawings, and PLC-I/O circuits using automated commands for symbol insertion, component tagging, wire numbering, and drawing modification. In addition, they are introduced to methods of customizing AutoCAD Electrical software symbols, circuits, and databases. Other topics covered include title block linking, reporting tools, templates, and project files.

  • A working knowledge of the AutoCAD software and electrical terminology.
