Autodesk, Inc. (San Rafael, Calif.) is now part of the Rockwell Automation Encompass Partner program. The partnership enables customers of Rockwell Automation (Milwaukee, Wis.), who utilize the Allen-Bradley of products to use AutoCAD Electrical software, an AutoCAD-based electrical controls design software, interoperable with Autodesk’s other design applications.
AutoCAD Electrical automates many tasks for electrical controls designers and provides a path for designers who use AutoCAD to design control systems or generate reports, such as a bills of material, by hand. AutoCAD Electrical contains libraries of Rockwell Automation components that let users specify Allen-Bradley product content directly from the included libraries into a design. This process automatically inserts the correct part number and product information into the bills of material.
