AutoCAD Electrical Fundamentals with IEC Standards - Virtual Course

This is an "online" version of the AutoCAD Electrical, Fundamentals training course, delivered remotely over a number of individual half-day sessions. 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.


Prerequisites

As this course is delivered via a web-link, those attending will need to have access to a workstation, connected to the internet, and with AutoCAD Electrical installed. A twin screen setup and a headset with microphone is also highly recommended.It is important that those attending this course have a working knowledge of the AutoCAD software as well as understanding electrical terminology
