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.

ProNova Solutions' proton therapy system is redefining the future of cancer treatment. We sat down with Jon Huber,Director of Engineering, for ProNova, for an in-depth interview about this exciting technology.
In Part 1 of this three part Q&A, Huber explained how their SC360 device works for proton therapy. This week, he discusses how they use SOLIDWORKS Electrical to manage complex wiring for a large-scale, three-story structure.
