The new Electra E7 start up at least 2 times faster and provide much better feedback, even when drawings contain a couple of hundred pages.
Finally, create pneumatic and hydraulic circuits and seamlessly integrate them into your electrical schematics. All pneumatic and hydraulic circuits comes with the same easy to use functionalities that you have come to expect from Electra, including automatic and intelligent naming, ability to create prefab circuits, generating Bill of materials (BOM) and much, much more.
In Electra E7, placing and arranging panel layout drawings is easier and faster with automatic placement. Simply drag and drop layout symbols onto rails and they'll be automatically arranged. Once arranged, layout symbols continue to stick onto rails when moved, just like in the real world.
The results are more intuitive panel layout arrangements done quicker and easier than ever before.
Symbols in Electra are already easy to make, but with the new Electra E7, modifications to an existing symbol or creating a new one is even easier.
It used to be, you have to add connections points after grouping your graphics or Electra will not be able to find them, when creating a new symbol.
With floating connection points in the new Electra E7, this is a thing of the past, and Electra will be able to find all connection points and float them to the group level. In simple terms, you can now create your own custom symbol, and not worry about when to add connection points.
When you add graphics or text, and select them together with a symbol, Electra understands that you wanted to add these graphics into an existing symbol and automatically perform all the heavy lifting, while still preserving data and intelligence.
To add graphics into a symbol, draw the graphics, select them all and simply click Electra | Create Schematic Symbol.
The PLC module can be used to generate all sorts of symbols, and with Electra E7, it is now even more powerful. Users can select to show or hide the internal pilot lights, and control the width of the entire module. Using the PLC module to generate any symbols is now far easier and faster.
New symbols include square and rectangle buttons on Layout 3D stencil, including improved realism on all symbols.
New Prefab circuits including automatic transformer starter with control circuits.
New title blocks including portrait blocks and for a multitude of sizes.
When a wire is attached to a wire link, Electra understands that although you have 2 virtual wires separated by wire links, they are actually a single physical cable in the real world, and will traverse wire links to obtain the correct cable information.
In Electra E7, you can now export symbols and wires on a drawing to Excel or as Tab Separated Values (.tsv). Once exported, these information can be edited and imported back into your drawings, for even faster circuit modifications.
Almost all reports that can be inserted in a drawing has been improved with most of them having the ability to right click and show or hide columns.
One of the most requested feature, now available in Electra E7, is the added length field for cables. Users can now add in a length to all assigned cables.
When using wire links, Electra needs to scan all links and present it to the user for easy selection. This is all good until we saw some customers using Electra to the max with huge numbers of links, essentially slowing down because of repeated scanning.
This just won't do, and in the new Electra E7, scanning of links is done only once, where all subsequent operations will not require any further scanning. The result is not only a substantial speed increase but pairing operations are now almost instant, even when you have thousands of links on your drawing.
Previously, when a wire is dragged to a symbol, Visio will automatically highlight parts that you can connect to, in red, and this will include the symbol body itself, as shown at left in the image below.
In the new Electra E7, wires will only connect to connection points, and all other parts will not turn red, making it easier and faster for users to connect wires to symbols.
