Editorial review

Comments

Margie Smeer Senior editor

The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 7.3
ProfiCAD offers you an easy way to design electrical diagrams, electronic circuits, and also hydraulics and pneumatic systems. The program is especially useful both for engineers and for students that want to improve their electronics knowledge level. ProfiCAD comes with a large library of predefined objects and allows you to customize your project in many ways.

As a former electronics student, I was really impressed by the tools ProfiCAD had to offer. Its comprehensive gallery of objects includes graphical representations for electronic symbols, and also for pneumatic diagrams, trunking systems, hydraulics, and many others.

By using this application, you can design various systems and customize them in many ways. For example, while testing the program, I easily managed to build a security alarm system in which I included components like automatic locks, motion detectors, alarms, and even a central monitoring station.

In my opinion, even though this program is quite expensive, it proves to be a reliable tool for anyone who designs electronic circuits.

Pros

  • Includes a large library of electrical symbols.
  • Offers a lot of editing options.
  • Intuitive user interface.

Cons

  • Quite expensive.
