CAD Schroer Releases MEDUSA Electrical Design Application, MEDEA

Moers, Germany, February 23, 2006 - CAD Schroer GmbH (CSG), the global engineering solutions provider headquartered in Germany, today announced the release of version 2003_350 of MEDEA, the renowned medusa Electrical Design Application for specialist power and control system providers.

MEDEA is a niche electrical design product, often overshadowed by the intelligent drafting, 3D modelling, and plant design modules available as part of CAD Schroer’s MEDUSA PLM suite. Yet the product, which is unrivalled in its data management approach, has an incredibly loyal customer base, which is passionate about the system’s capabilities, and works in close partnership with CSG’s developers through all stages of the release cycle. One of MEDEA’s most outstanding characteristics is its unified data model, which allows users to percolate changes in a component throughout its design history by automatically synchronising all data views, making it an immense productivity tool.

“The key words to describe the latest release include flexibility, usability and time-savings,” explains Peter van der Heij, long-standing MEDEA expert in the Netherlands. “Our customers, typically companies that develop industrial packaging and production equipment, will be especially pleased to see the enhanced catalogue environment and the new, user friendly UI dialogs. And of course this upgrade is free of charge for all of CSG’s maintenance-paying clients.”

What’s New in MEDEA Version 2003_350?

  • Updated and Enhanced Catalogue Environment

    The environment for defining and managing catalogues, parts, symbols, cables and their attributes has been updated significantly. The new Catalogue Manager allows users to list, load, and update their catalogues, and edit parts directly via the Part Editor or the Component Manager.

  • New Component Manager

    This dialog allows users to review and change the properties (such as location, name and class) of selected components.

  • New Equipotential Properties Dialog

    The new dialog allows users to change the properties (such as name, type and style) of selected equipotential lines in a sheet, and set and clear a connector as a “source”, which all other connectors in the design with identical connector name will reference, especially useful in multi-sheet designs.

  • Enhanced Catalogue Symbol Loading Dialog

    This dialog now supports multiple catalogue symbol trees and special text characters and features an enhanced preview mode.

  • Easy Data Browsing

    An extremely flexible and effective data browser has replaced the classic MEDEA menus, offering quick and intuitive access to the design database. Users can select data by type (e.g. archive, drawing, electrical function properties of existing design etc.) and use the new “mini menu bar buttons” to gain fast and easy access to common design tasks, including the checking and correcting of designs.

  • New Status Area for Quick Access to Design Information

    This intuitive area of the MEDEA user interface now displays context–sensitive help and information, including the current grid area, help on selected tools (including next steps for multi-step operations), descriptions of previous events, and the properties of the selected element, including editing access.

  • New Event List.
    This tool allows users to evaluate the current session design progress and is also used for design verification and trouble-shooting.

  • Easy Import of Symbols from other CAD products (e.g. DXF data)

    “Customer loyalty is one of our hallmarks,” explains Michael Schroer, the company’s Founding Director. “We work hard to retain that loyalty by offering customers a sound partnership based on engineering know-how, and constant proof – by way of regular software updates and releases with innovative cost-saving productivity tools – that their maintenance money is well-spent.”
