Circuit Diagram

(Wiring diagrams)

SEE Electrical is a software design environment in electrical engineering. With a wide variety of additional modules, each user can configure the program according to his or her needs, as the SEE Electrical platform enables design in energy, automation, electrical installations, fluids and process techniques to the design of switch cabinets and the like. We are especially proud of the ability to solve/digitize old project documentation by converting raster or vector documentation.

PDF Converter

(Intelligent PDF projects)

Module PDF Converter allows generating project in the “live” .pdf format. Made PDF file has the same structure as a project in the tool SEE Electrical. Contents “page” can be invoked by clicking on the content. If you use Advanced module are generated PDF file active all references, which can be used to jump to the destination i.e. a jump between references.


  • Generating one page (Drawing2PDF)
  • Generating the project (Workspace2PDF)
  • Generating PDF from selected file / print list (PrintList2PDF)
  • The export of all texts as »searchable« (font selection) »Included are fonts Default, Central 
  • European, Cyrilic, Chinese …
  • Generating projects in multiple languages » using the function Translate
  • Generating documents with the project structure


(Project translation)

Translate function makes it easy to translate the entire project in all world languages with all the characters (Cyrillic, Arabic-Greek, -Chinese characters). As a supplement can be found in the Circuit diagram Standard or Advanced package!

Open Data

(Fast project changes)

Module Open Data allows you to export project data to Excel file. Exported files / lists can be easily and quickly changed and modified them for being imported into software, and refresh the project. The module is very useful for revisions or amendments to the project.


  • DBListsFromExcel
  • DBListsToExcel


(Auto generating of standard schemes)

Fast generating of standard schemes of Excel.

Auto Diagram feature allows you to quickly generate standard schemes with the help of data entered in Excel. It allows the user to speed up planning to 70%! Where additive may also be available in the Circuit diagram Standard or Advanced Package!

Intelligent Drawing Legacy

(Transforming/Converting a raster/vector file)

 The Intelligent Drawing Legacy module enables quick and easy conversion of raster (scanned) documentation (.jpg, .tif) and / or vector documentation (.dwg, .dxf) into intelligent SEE Electrical format. It is available in three levels.

Environment Manager

(Synchronize projects files)

The Environment Manager modul allows you to synchronize projects files (symbols, templates) between client computers and a server.



The module for creating, managing and storing SEE Electrical project information in SOLIDWORKS PDM (Product Data Management).

3D Panel+

(3D wiring, mounting and assemblies)

SEE Electrical 3D Panel+ is a new standalone or module application which allows you to use 3D data in an intuitive and professional user interface.

Using tools to automate your 3D panel mounting and assembly you can reduce your design manufacturing and startup costs.

Cabinet Layout

(2D Layout design)

Module Cabinet Layout is the best choice to design the cabinet that works within SEE Electrical. Together with the Standard and Advanced level module that offers uniqueness in design cabinets and electrical diagram.


  • It offers a unique design in the cabinet
  • Enables the design of projects or the wiring diagram or layout switching cell (in conjunction with SEE Electrical)
  • It contains a simple tool for designing
  • Allows you to easily add data to the manufacturer’s booklet (dimensions), and the front-looking components
  • Functions for designing cabinets, cable channels, carriers
  • Index table
  • Checking presence / utilization of elements, and checks when changing the technical characteristics (dimensions)
  • Functions for automatically inserting multiple elements at once
  • Lists

Cabinet Layout Thermal Calculation

(Calculate thermal loss/gain)

The Cabinet Layout Thermal Calculation module offers calculation of:

  • Power loss of all the equipment in the closet
  • Minimal and maximal total temperature inside the cabinet, without cooling system solutions
  • Power required for cooling (air conditioning, fan, heater,… )
  • In the calculation and definition of the closet IEC 61439 and IEC 60890 standards are included

The value of the required parameters used in the calculations should be entered in the database. Recommended is to use Web catalogue that already includes the necessary factors by the equipment manufacturer.

Thermal calculations also depend on configuration of the closet, where are included the previous options.


(Electro-installation projects)

SEE Electrical Building+ is a module that is designed primarily for the needs of electro-installers. It is an extremely flexible and comprehensible to the user.

    Web Catalogue

    (Technical data and 2D/3D symbols)

    1,000,000 technical data of different manufacturers

    IGE-XAO’s software SEE Electrical created WEB-catalogue, which currently contains approximately 1,000,000 technical specification components from different manufacturers. There are also approximately 20,000 Electrical 2D/3D symbols.

    WEB-catalogue is available as a 12-month service!
