Has anybody knowledge of a wiring diagram software that enables to do the electrical, not the PCB drawing, like drawing transformers, fuses, switches, relays, valves; enable to check the circuit for errors, like shorts, suggestions for wire AWG and fuses,wiring color codes and labels?

a couple of questions...

are you on windows, mac or linux?
Are you looking for something like freeware or are you willing to pay for it?
;)

meanwhile, maybe you can check out this online Circuit Simulator!
;)
I have used it a couple of times and it is nice (depending on what you want to "draw").
https://www.circuitlab.com/

Would love to know what you thought about it...
;)

Free or open source would be nice. OS Linux or Windows.

hmmm, i'm on a mac.
how is that online simulator for you? Was it something like that that you wanted?

i know there are several nice online circuit simulators, like http://www.docircuits.com
and maybe if you look on google you will also find many free ones for windows and linux!

Maybe you can then post here your findings...  ;)

I too am interested in software to draw wiring diagrams and have been looking for such a product for a couple of years.  I have tried both docircuit.com and circuitlab.com, in the trial mode, and neither seemed to do what I needed though I do like the simulation element.  I have also tried PCB design software, like ExpressPCB, that didn't do what I would like either. I work on old cars and a lot of the wiring diagrams are difficult, if impossible to read, and I would like to create better copies for myself and other enthusiasts. Plus it would be nice to zoom in and around and print out all of or a detailed portion of a diagram.  I use a Wondows 7, and linux VM, PC and would not mind paying for a good piece of software but free is nice too.

List of "requirements"

  • Multiple colors on one wire (white wire, blue stripe)

  • Connectors

  • Light bulbs

  • Fuses

  • Switches

  • Relays

  • Motors



TIA,
Paul
