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.

What's new in version 8.2

Improved Properties Panel

The Properties panel makes it possible to change the properties of several objects at once. For example, it is possible to change the line type for several objects.
Cable Drawing

The program enables drawing of cable symbols and creates a list of cables.

Choose Insert - Cable from the menu and use the mouse to cross the connections that create the cable.

In the dialog window that opens enter the name, type, and estimated length of the cable. End drawing of cables by pressing Esc.

Cable Manager (menu Outputs - Cable Manager) allows you to depict all cables in the drawing and to specify their properties. You can change name, type and length of a cable.

Cables List (menu Outputs – Cables List) allows you to print a list of cables. Checking the group option will display the total length of cables by type.

How to change name, type or length of a cable:
Right-click the cable symbol and select Properties. A dialog window for changing the cable data will open.
Change the values in the Cable Manager table.
