Siemens extends Xcelerator portfolio
Siemens Digital Industries Software has announced the release of NX Automation Designer software and NX Industrial Electrical Design software.
This new suite of solutions provides a central design application for industrial electrical and automation design and are intended to help manufacturers of production systems to manage design complexity, shorten development lifecycles and increase the quality of their designs. Direct integration with Teamcenter software for product lifecycle management (PLM) and the entire NX design software portfolio provides a unified multidisciplinary design environment for production systems engineering.
NX Automation Designer and NX Industrial Electrical Design provide a range of new functions for efficient electrical and automation design of industrial equipment.
Electrical engineers can complete their work faster with enhancements to connection handling and reporting, new OOTB symbols for IEC, ANSI and fluidics and 2D cabinet dimensioning. Automation engineers benefit from extended software generation capabilities for sequences and safety programs.
The latest release enables users to get started in the world of functional design, by enabling them to start their electrical and automation design work without Teamcenter. This allows users, not looking for a complete PLM system, to benefit from the electrical and automation design capabilities.
Siemens said that by boosting engineering productivity with a new level of multi-disciplinary collaboration, NX Automation Designer is able to address the growing demand for product variety from consumers by lowering businesses’ IT costs.
