Trace Software International will show the latest version of its Elecworks electrical CAD software at Solidworks World 2010.

Elecworks was initially conceived to facilitate collaboration between electrical and mechanical teams to help design automation and electrical installation projects.

It is ideally suited for designers, engineers and managers that want to integrate electrical schematic in their existing Solidworks platform as a simple, easy to use and cost-effective add-on.

This new release includes the following features: improved automatic generation for PLCs, automatic routing and wiring within Solidworks, and compatibility advantages with Solidworks and Autocad.

Trace recently opened an Elecworks Shanghai office and launched a new website in English, French, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese and Chinese, offering an e-content portal section for Elecworks users, in particular to share Solidworks component libraries.

Trace Software

Founded in 1989, Trace Software International provides software solutions used to design, calculate, simulate and manage electrical installations in the aim of improving productivity, cost optimisation and automation of tedious tasks. In 20 years, Trace Software International has acquired a unique expertise in partnership with leading market software makers, especially with Dassault Systemes and Autodesk, and has double proficiency in electrical calculation and electrical installations and automation design with wiring management.

The company develops and sells various solutions:

  • Elecworks: electrical CAD, with a full standalone solution or with SolidWorks add-ins for integrating 2D schematic electrical data into mechanical 3D views. Optional Routing and Cabling module for automatic 3D wiring of a panel or a machine. Optional PDM module
  • Elec Calc: multi-standard calculation of low-voltage electrical installations with integrated module for discrimination studies, partial or total intelligent selectivity and selectivity by curves with information supplied by equipment manufacturers
  • Solar Calc: calculation of photovoltaic installations connected to public electrical distribution network
  • Trace Elec Cabling: calculation and easy optimisation of facility wiring paths based on environmental constraints (separation of signal types, raceway fill rate)
  • Trace Elec Distribution: single-line electrical schematic of distribution lines and wiring diagrams, low voltage or high voltage

Partner to SolidWorks, Trace Software International is present worldwide. With a head office in France, Trace Software International has offices in Michigan (US), Shanghai (China) and Barcelona (Spain).
