1Des = FDes and EDes


Introduction


DesSoft applications produce a host of engineering documents for Instrumentation and Electrical disciplines on an integrated database and have the following features:


• Total Inter-Discipline Integration- Central database between EDes and FDes.
• Total Scalable, Customizable and Flexible- Can be used effectively and productively on any project, big or small.
• Maintenance Tool with Red-Lining Capabilities- when generated file is red-lined, the database is flagged red as well to complete the document life-cycle.
• Open Architecture- The ability to work directly in the database tables as spreadsheets views.
• Multiple Document Interface (MDI) - the ability to have multiple modules open simultaneously and switch between them using tabs.
• Dockable Windows- Windows can be dockable to optimize screen space OR undocked and placed on an additional screen.



Features


One design tool for electrical and instrumentation documentation


Speed Tools

1Des is one of the most productive design tools with many speed building tools like:


• Bulk datasheets.
• Bulk loop builder.
• Bulk document builder for loops and panels.
• Bus device associations.
• Cable drum allocations.
• Except of the normal import per table tools, 1Des also provide a bulk import tool for many tables at a time.
• Bulk assignment of manufacture standard to motors, instruments, cables, cards, etc. Using drag drop capabilities.
• Bulk rebuild of T-strip terminals, Cables Cores, etc. Using drag drop capabilities.


CAD and Database independent

• 1Des has an internal drawing editor that saves documents in DGM format but can also save all DGM documents as DWG or PDF formats without the requirement of any additional software installed. 1Des can connect to Microsoft Access or SQL databases as required, changes can be made to the table without the requirement of any other software installed.


Accurate data

• 1Des is a relational database system that ensures accurate data entry from where all documents are generated. This means that data lives in ONE place and changes only have to be made in ONE place and all documents will be correctly updated.


Integration to other systems

• Data in all the tables can be exported to various formats like XLS, CSV, TXT, etc to enable other software systems to re-use the same data like PLC/DCS, SCADA, etc systems. These lists can also be imported to add more data records or to update the existing records. A P&ID tag extraction tool is provided to gather information from DWG files and import it into 1Des.


Change control and document management

• All 1Des documents like the connection diagrams, reports and datasheets are saved in their respective revision folders so that all previous revisions can be viewed. By using the “Update Repository” button, all the above documents latest revisions are copied into one central repository folder anywhere on your network, as user defined.
• Three access levels to a project is allowed, namely Guest, Designer and Administrator. Change Control can be switched on at any stage of the project phase and will start monitoring any changes or additions made to specified fields and will save the date, the old and new values, the tables and the logged-in name.

1Des = FDes and EDes Integrated:

1Des is a combination of FDes and EDes integrated into one package. 1Des is a relational database system that ensures accurate data entry from where all documents are generated. This means that data lives in ONE place and changes only have to be made in ONE place (either FDes or EDes) and all documents will be correctly updated


FDes - Fieldbus & Instrumentation Designer Features:

Fieldbus and Instrumentation design documentation software that creates documents like Loop Connection Diagrams, Termination Connection Diagrams, Datasheets, Hookups, Fieldbus Network Layouts, etc. and reports like Instrument lists, Cable schedules, I/O schedules, Different costing reports, etc.


EDes - Electrical Designer Features:

Electrical design documentation software that creates documents like Motor Schematic Diagrams, Termination Connection Diagrams, Single Line Diagrams, Datasheets, Hookups, etc.
