Automatically places operating equipment
Automatically dimensions cable ducts and mounting rails
Minimizes control cabinet sizes
Observes layout rules
Offers integration and data exchange with existing ECAD solutions (e.g.: EPLAN EEC)

  • Saves time in design (no manual placing of components)
  • Reduces costs in control cabinet construction
  • Provides immediate results
  • Allows for low maintenance for new equipment / configurations

In control cabinet design, components are typically placed by hand. This process is time-consuming and, just as the selection of the minimum control cabinet size, offers high potential to reduce costs. This is where SwitchLay comes in: the software automatically places components and adjusts the dimensions of cable ducts, mounting rails and control cabinets accordingly. The automation process also enables immediate evaluation of the designed control cabinet in its assembly structure. SwitchLay can communicate with other programs through various open standards, and data exchange is possible at both database and file levels. SwitchLay helps to reduce the time spent in the design process, thus reducing the cost of control cabinet construction.
