AutoCAD Electrical Essentials

Courseware Description
AutoCAD Electrical Fundamentals covers the indispensable core topics for working with AutoCAD Electrical. Learn to
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, students
are introduced to methods of customizing AutoCAD Electrical symbols, circuits, and databases. Other topics covered
include titleblock linking, reporting tools, templates, and project files.

Suggested Course Duration: 3 days


Trial CD: Yes
Onscreen Exercises Included? Yes

Objectives
The main objective would be for the delegate to draw a single line diagram, schematic and eventually end off the
process by providing a bill of materials.

Who Should Attend
