Radica Software Launches Electra Cloud, World’s First Fully Browser-based Electrical CAD Software

Ipoh, Malaysia – Radica Software Sdn. Bhd. today announced the immediate availability of Electra Cloud, a fully browser-based electrical CAD software that allows engineers to create, edit, and share 2D electrical, pneumatic and hydraulic schematic drawings with team members. Electra Cloud works on all computer operating systems including Microsoft Windows, Linux, and Apple Macintosh, as well as on any mobile devices such as smartphones. An easy-to-use software, Electra Cloud does not require extensive training, and furthermore, it helps engineers complete schematic drawings between 300% and 500% faster than traditional software currently available in the market. Electra Cloud is now available directly at https://cloud.radicasoftware.com.

An important advantage of Electra Cloud is that it allows users to collaborate on their drawings with team members located anywhere in the world in real-time, with just a browser and no additional software required.

Thomas Yip, CEO and founder of Radica Software said, “Software offerings in the electrical CAD industry have not seen much changes despite their long existence. So, we are thrilled to offer Electra Cloud, a breakthrough solution for engineers around the world. We’re saying this because Electra Cloud can be accessed from anywhere using a web browser and users no longer need to have a software installed on their computer to access electrical drawings like previously. This, sets Electra Cloud apart from ECAD products in the market.”

Team dashboard which is a key feature in Electra Cloud allows team members of the same project will always have access to the latest version of drawings, for teams to work effectively together. It enables easy sharing, commenting, chatting and collaborative editing.

In addition, Electra Cloud also comes with File Version Control feature that saves changes made in real-time automatically, allowing collaborators to revert to previous revisions without worrying about losing any previous work.

Electra Cloud contains all the necessary automated tooling including automatic tagging, circuit reuse, real time cross reference, extensive set of NFPA/JIC and IEC symbols, PLC modules, automatically generate bill of materials, terminals, panel layout and others.

“Electra Cloud makes design collaboration much simpler and easier. For instance, previously, recipients must have the same CAD software or a viewer to collaborate on a drawing, but that is not an issue anymore. With a click of a button, users of Electra Cloud can now share drawings with any authorized team members regardless of their location and they can edit, comment and chat about the designs using a web browser only,” Yip commented.

“It is a great concept, and it is great that you then have access from anywhere,” said Joseph Stieha (Electra Cloud Beta user), from PowerTech Water Inc, based in Lexington, Kentucky, USA.

Radica Software also plans to release an offline version of Electra Cloud especially to those users who are concerned about privacy and would prefer to work entirely offline.
