    Creating terminal strip documentation is an error-prone and tedious process. Creating terminal strip drawings, cabinet layout and industry standard charts that illustrate how the terminal strip is assembled and how the wiring is to be connected must be done to fully document a control panel. Luckily, SOLIDWORKS Electrical has helpful tools that cut this process down from hours to minutes while reducing error.
