Certified Autodesk AutoCAD Electrical Expert Elite

Product Line Manager
"Closing in on four decades of experience in the electrical controls/ECAD industry, I can recall two individuals who exhibited both a great passion for their work and an absolutely impeccable attention to detail. The first person was named Mike - and this was back in the mid-70s when we worked together designing industrial control systems. The second is Doug McAlexander, whom I have had the honor and pleasure to work with since 1997, in the area of Electrical CAD. Doug is knowledgeable in a wide range of ECAD tools, having made numerous contributions in product field testing and design improvement suggestions, especially for the AutoCAD Electrical product.
Working with Doug, I have found him to be most generous with his time. He is patient. Doug's attention to detail is unsurpassed. He is a man of honesty and integrity… and his passion in the workplace is for ECAD users to succeed."

AutoCAD® Electrical is an enhanced version of AutoCAD® that gives AutoCAD® the "horsepower" to create controls schematics and panel layouts with speed, consistency, and accuracy. You can leverage past designs so future project lead-times can be trimmed to a minimum. Built-in automated tools increase your productivity. AutoCAD® Electrical has the tools to make your schematics "smart" so report extraction, error analysis, and even language conversions are easy tasks. You can even convert an entire electrical project from JIC to IEC symbols, or vice versa, with a few keystrokes.
We can put your personnel on the fast track to becoming highly efficient with electrical CAD software. If you already use AutoCAD®, you can make the switch to AutoCAD® Electrical with relative ease. The file format doesn't even change. And yes, you can convert your existing "dumb" AutoCAD® drawings to the intelligent AutoCAD® Electrical format. We have a staff of trained personnel who can convert older drawings from other formats or from standard AutoCAD format so your design team can stay focused on new projects.
