Advance electrical designs with intelligent modeling

Automate tedious tasks found in traditional CAD-centric electrical system design with Promis.e and reduce errors with an intelligent model that cross-references schematics, 2D layouts, 3D equipment models, and reports. With Promis.e, you get an intelligent 2D/3D electrical system design application that delivers projects faster and with fewer errors than traditional CAD. Promis.e automates tedious drafting and employs an intelligent model that cross-references schematics, 2D layouts, 3D equipment models, and reports. The application is used around the world to design industrial machine controls as well as electrical systems for process plants, mines, and rail signaling.

Support intelligent designs with a project-based workflow

Promis.e organizes your work into projects, linking drawing pages for cross-referencing, error checking, and list generation. Changes made to one part of the project are automatically reflected in the rest of the project. Promis.e includes the ability to analyze and set wire sizes for each run. By planning for appropriate sizing early, you can provide the facility with lower CAPEX through optimal wiring purchases and control OPEX through lower utility costs. With Promis.e, electrical design theory and practice, engineers can support operations and reduce costs and materials with wire sizing.

Save time with schematic design tools

With built-in symbol libraries, macros, and cut-and-paste capabilities, Promis.e provides quick generation of control system schematics. System logic also provides you automatic device ID assignment, real-time automatic cross-referencing, automatic wire numbering, and error checking. You can also automatically generate schematics from commands stored in a spreadsheet file. Promis.e comes equipped with standard IEC and ANSIIEEE page formats. Symbol libraries are available for ANSI and IEC electrical applications as well as for hydraulic, pneumatic, and process control drawings.

Improve design quality with error checking

Promis.e alerts you to possible errors as drawings are created which reduces the amount of manual checking, improves the overall accuracy of the drawing, and prevents costly corrections. Error conditions include short circuits, gaps in the circuit, duplicate device IDs, duplicate wire numbers, missing part numbers, missing cross references, and over-assigned contacts.

Integrate your engineering data with a parts database

Promis.e includes a parts database that allows you to associate components in the design with specific parts information. It also facilitates the generation of parts lists, panel layouts, and other documents. Parts database files are available for many leading equipment manufacturers, which saves project team members from having to manually enter data. Users can also import existing parts data, including parts data and attributes from OpenPlant and other applications.

Generate accurate reports quickly

A parts database linked to the schematic provides superior documentation. This enables bills of material, purchase order lists, panel layouts, terminal plans, wire lists, and wiring diagrams to be generated automatically, based on drawings and other system information.
