Electra ECAD works on Microsoft Visio which is an extremely easy to use and widely adopted by engineers around the world. Since the first release in 2005, Electra software has already been used in over 42 countries.

“We understand that creating circuits is an extremely tedious and time-consuming job. That’s why we’ve built more automation capabilities in Electra E7 to allow engineers produce these circuits three- to five-time faster compared to non-electrical specific software. With the help from Electra, engineers can focus on safety and great designs, rather than drafting,” Mr. Yip explained.

Electra E7 retails for US$998 for the Standard Edition with basic functionalities, US$1298 for Professional Edition with full electrical functionalities and US$1898 for the Enterprise Edition which contains electrical, pneumatic and hydraulic editing capabilities.
