Previous Feature: Panel Schedules - Next Feature: Devices

“I can’t praise Design Master enough. It cuts the time it takes to produce our designs by about 90%. The software has saved us from having to hire four or five different people.”

Paul Kenney, PE

Design Master Electrical is equipped with tools and functions that allow you to quickly draft your homeruns, circuit loops, and circuit tags. It also makes it easy to quickly change your homeruns and loops as the design changes.

Display Circuits with or without Panel Name

Depending on how much information you want to display on the plan, you can choose to include the circuit with or without the panel name, or hide it altogether.

Full Descriptions Inserted for Wires Larger than #12

Homeruns with wires larger than #12 will have full wire callouts displayed.

Tick Marks Inserted Automatically for #12 Wires

Any homerun that uses #12 wires will have tick marks inserted automatically. You can also show full wire callouts for homeruns with #12 wires.

Easy to Break or Move Loops

The loops drawn by Design Master Electrical can be easily moved, redrawn, and broken to achieve a clean appearance. The loops can also be turned off completely if desired. 

Use Junction Boxes to Guide Wires

Junction boxes can be used to provide an even more detailed image of how each circuit will be wired together. This can be used to create accurate shop drawings for electricians in the field.
