ProfiCAD is a utility for professionals in the electrical engineering field. It helps them create electrical documentation and schematic diagrams.
The program comes with a large number of symbols that can be used in the electrical design process, it permits drawing on multiple layers, inserting images such as scanned floor plans and offers several options for making the design process an accurate one. About 700 symbols are available in its library and others can also be added according to your needs. For more control when working with large documents, all symbols added to a scheme are listed in the Explorer window and can be selected from there. Files can be imported from AutoCAD (.dxf and .dwg) so that electro-installations can be sketched on building floors for example. The utility is not aimed at simulating electrical circuits, but just at drawing electrical documentation.

ProfiCAD has a user-friendly interface, so one doesn't need to be an IT professional to use the program, just a professional in the field of electrical engineering.

The utility works with Windows XP or higher and it needs little space on hard drive.

Given the large symbol library and the friendly graphics, this piece of software can be recommended to those involved in sketching electrical installations.
