About EZ Schematics: Electrical CAD Software

Whether you're an Electrical Engineer, a Student or an Industrial Maintenance Electrician, there's simply no easier way to draw and print electrical schematic diagrams than with EZ Schematics. Read our press release.

This software program was designed by an industrial electrician with over 20 years experience in both troubleshooting and training in control relay logic (similar in many regards to PLC logic). The application, established in a line diagram format, provides the end user with the ability to quickly and easily transform logical concepts into a professionally diplayed electrical schematic.

Admittedly, as a stand-alone CAD program, EZ Schematics does not offer all of the features nor the capabilities of AutoCad and other well established CAD software applications. But with the learning curve set far lower than the aforementioned, you'll never find an easier method to transform electrical relay logic concepts into digital documents (as line diagrams) that can be saved and printed with professional appearance.

What makes EZ Schematics a better CAD program for producing electrical schematics includes the following:

1. Ease of use. There's no other Electrical CAD program available that's easier to learn than EZ Schematics.

2. Almost all of the electrical symbols are created in 1/2" scale increments designed to align perfectly with the default snap (also set at 1/2'), thus making precise placement of the symbols a simple procedure.

3. Our default library is the NEMA symbols library from which most U.S. electrical schematics are developed. Thus, there's no waste of time in pouring over thousands of choices you won't use. We also offer an IEC library.

4. When inserting a symbol, smart choice labeling is employed. For example, when inserting a control relay coil, "CR" is automatically attached as the standard beginning label anticipating it to be followed by "1" or "2", etc.

5. The "Line" control (the most popular device) becomes readily available by simply double-clicking anywhere in the drawing.

6. Labeling the wire numbers is performed easily and precisely. Just click and type at the location of choice.

Never before has there been a CAD program easier to use than EZ Schematics. If you need to draw electrical schematics and/or diagrams quickly and easily, this is a software application you can depend on.

Electrical Schematic Software: User Interface

(From the developer) "Being somewhat proficient in AutoCad myself, I'll choose EZ Schematics any day of the week over AutoCad for drawing an electrical circuit. When it comes to putting onto paper a concept very quickly and precisely, our software will win in every case. And it's because of the simplicity we've built into it. It doesn't get any easier than this."

In addition to the software being a simple to use CAD program, its rich features also make it easy to utilize the program as a training mechanism. Case in point shown below.

Electrical Schematic Software Example - Forward/Reverse Starter Circuit

In the above circuit, we've highlighted some parts of the schematic (diagram) in color to demonstrate the principle of voltage potentials. In this case, all of the high side voltage (120 with respect to neutral), is displayed in red. The low voltage (neutral) is represented in blue.

This gives the end user a visual concept and understanding of the voltage differences (voltage potential) throughout the circuit. Now the circuit becomes more dimensional in the sense that it's not just a black and white schematic (diagram), but rather a more dynamic illustration.

FAQ:

Q: I downloaded the software and a warning popped up. What's this about?
A: Nothing to panic about. Downloading and installing the software will not harm your computer. The warning is merely to inform you that Wade Instruments has not went through the publisher certification process which re-ensures customers that the product is safe to install and that we are who we say we are. We intend to join soon. More about the warning can be found here.

EZ-Schematics antivirus report at FileCluster.com

Q: I received the message "Setup fatal error: Unable to generate installation log file" after double-clicking the setup button. How do I resolve this issue?
A: The error happens because you don't have permission to install a program. You'll need to have an administrator install the software for you.

Q: Can I create and save my own symbols?
A: Yes.

Q: Are there any plans to develop more symbol libraries, like hydraulic, PID, or European style symbols?
A: Yes. some of those libraries have already been developed and others are in the works.

Q: Can the symbols be resized?
A: Yes.

Q: Can I change the font and font size?
A: Yes.

Q: Can I save the drawing as a PDF?
A: Yes. Saving as a PDF requires a third party tool, such as Bullzip PDF Printer, which is a free download.

Q: When I try to print the drawing, it comes out on 2 or more sheets of paper. What's wrong?
A: You have an element or label on the drawing that is outside the boundaries of the printer. There are 2 possible causes:
1. Access the printer properties and select the correct paper size from the list.
2. You have inadvertently moved an item to a location you cannot see. Before proceeding, save a copy of your drawing. Then, open the drawing and select all items by pressing CTRL + A. Use the SHIFT and UP, DOWN, LEFT or RIGHT arrow to move the items to extreme locations until the unseen element comes into view. Delete that element and select all again and move as previously mentioned. As a last resort, send us the file so that we can fix the drawing.

Q: Why do I receive an error 380 when trying to print?
A: See previous answer.
