skemdit - speed up your electrical revision The PDF software for circuit diagrams

Digitise circuit diagrams permanently

In mechanical and plant engineering, the circuit diagram is the core document for electrical production. Numerous changes and revisions are made to the circuit diagram from the design stage to handover to the customer. These modifications are made at various points, for instance at the external switchgear manufacturer, during factory installation by the fitter or while commissioning is taking place. The design department has the task of collating these changes in order to provide the customer with complete system documentation. Due to the many media disruptions, it is difficult to record these changes correctly and re-import them into the CAE system (e.g. EPLAN, WSCAD or E3.series).

"Familiarising ourselves with skemdit, its flexibility in dealing with the various CAE programs and the processing of CAE data as an intelligent PDF, made it easier for us to start digitising our processes and is what enabled us to do so in the first place."


Customised solution for users in switchgear construction

Although manufacturing processes are becoming increasingly digitalised, working with circuit diagrams nowadays still means working with paper. Since the electrical circuits are represented in abstract form, conventional PDF tools are not suitable for digitising work on the circuit diagram in a manner that adds value.

This is precisely the problem that skemdit solves. Working with the circuit diagram digitally is facilitated by customised functions. Thus, digitisation using skemdit boosts efficiency in electrical production at last - and does so transparently across the entire value chain. skemdit makes it easier to insert red line changes, mark cables that have already been laid and, above all, to navigate through the circuit diagram - a simple PDF editor tailored to the industry’s needs.

Benefits for you

skemdit is a PDF software which allows you to edit circuit diagrams digitally. The handling of existing circuit diagrams on paper was taken as the main point of orientation. You can now work digitally on a document throughout the value chain and track all changes quickly and easily. This means you can provide subsequent divisions with an up-to-date diagram in a prompt and reliable manner. Illegible or lost changes on paper are a thing of the past.

  • Work in paperless form
  • Reduced process costs
  • Find changes more quickly
  • Shorter lead times for revisions
  • Assured documentation quality
