AutoCAD Electrical, Fundamentals with IEC Standards

In this course, delegates learn how to use many of the powerful electrical drawing creation tools in the AutoCAD Electrical software. Delegates 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, delegates are introduced to methods of customising AutoCAD Electrical software symbols, circuits, and databases. Other topics covered include title block linking, reporting tools, templates, and project files.
