How to Generate Wiring Labels the Easy Way

We are now part of Siemens’ family. Electra Cloud is now Capital Electra X and Electra E9 is now Capital Electra 2210.

Wiring labels are essential to keeping track of cables and wires during the production and installation of an electrical panel, therefore being able to easily generate labels is the very first step to a good and proper cable management.

Typically, electrical engineers will have to manually list out the information and details (i.e. wiring and wiring terminals) before printing out the labels. This requires a huge chunk of time just for identifying, determining, and keying in all the data. The process is time-consuming and mistakes are easily made, especially when the job requires high concentration.

Generate wire labels easily in just a few clicks

We understand the pain and took the opportunity in offering electrical engineers a better way to generate wiring labels without hassle. Now, you can get your wire labeling swiftly and easily on Electra Cloud.

With Electra's Wire Labeling plugin, our Electrical Schematic CAD software can automatically identify and list all wires in an electrical schematic and export to different file formats such as TSV, CSV, and JSON.
