CATIA - Electrical System Functional Definition

Manage functional design and review of electrical systems.

Product overview

CATIA - Electrical System Functional Definition 2 (EFD) is dedicated to the functional design of electrical systems and addresses the first stage in the electrical system engineering process. This product is a light weight, portable, multi-platform application. It provides an open architecture to integrate customer-defined commands and dynamically display customer defined attributes.

EFD allows engineers to design and formalize electrical systems using Excel-like form views. It also provides users with the ability to pre-visualize system assemblies.

Neutral ASCII formats (CSV like format) can be imported and exported, and EFD provides advanced navigation capabilities. It also features links to physical V4 libraries, with access driven by functional specifications. In addition, users can analyze and resolve external intersystem links.

relationships can be suggested from a given functional specification using compatibility management. By accessing the V5 electrical catalogs, users can tap all basic electrical standard part management capabilities provided by the CATIA Electrical Library. Within CATIA - Electrical Librarian 2 (ELB), users can select a functional device imported from CATIA - Electrical System Functional Definition 2 (EFD) for placement in a 3D mock-up. The list of physical devices available in the catalog is filtered according to the pre-selected function.
