Automated Switch Cabinet Layout

SwitchLay is software for the layout of switch cabinets. For this purpose, SwitchLay automatically places electrical equipment in the switch cabinet and adapts the dimensions of wire ducts and mounting rails. The automated layout can be dynamically modified by arrangement rules.

SwitchLay reduces the time necessary for the design process as well as the cost of the switch cabinet construction. The automated process allows an immediate evaluation of the circuit design in the mounting layout.

SwitchLay can communicate with other software tools through different open standards. The data exchange can take place by database as well as file-based.
