Malaysia-based Radica Software has announced the release of Electra Cloud, an electrical CAD software application that allows engineers to create, edit, and share 2D electrical, pneumatic, and hydraulic schematic drawings. The fully browser-based software is the first such application of its type, according to Radica.
Because it runs in an Internet browser, Electra Cloud is platform-agnostic, and accessible via mobile devices as well as desktop computers. It also enables users to collaborate with remotely located team members in real time, regardless of what software each person has installed on their computer. A dashboard gives all individuals working on the same project access to the latest version of drawings, and supports sharing, commenting, chatting, and collaborative editing.
Thomas Yip, CEO and founder of Radica Software, explained that browser-based software offers advantages for a variety of organizations: “For small teams, being able to access critical engineering resources from the cloud means the boss can go out to meet a client with a laptop, without asking the engineer to email the latest version over. It also means the engineer can still make some modifications over the cloud if required, even though he or she may be on a vacation. The days of forgetting to put in place a backup plan are over, as everything is in the cloud, and properly backed up,” he told Cadalyst.
“For large diverse teams, it is far easier to sync up the latest changes and plans with everyone. IT cost, scalability, business continuity (in case of manpower turnovers), collaboration both internal and external, access to automatic updates, and flexibility of work practices all contribute to a far better bottom line for companies, compared to good old traditional software.
“Perhaps the only area where traditional software may be required are absolute privacy like military projects, or specialized software that is used to design planes and automotive, where privacy and extreme speed is absolutely required,” Yip acknowledged.
Electra Cloud includes automated tooling including automatic tagging, circuit reuse, real-time cross reference, NFPA/JIC and IEC symbols, PLC modules, automatic bill of materials (BOM) generation, terminals, panel layout, and more. The software also features File Version Control functionality that saves changes made in real time automatically, allowing collaborators to revert to previous revisions without losing any work, according to the company.
