Oxford, England, 05 June 2014 – Cadonix Ltd, the Cloud based automotive harness CAD specialist, today named MasterMover, a world leader in electric tugs, as its second customer and its first in the UK. MasterMover has purchased Cadonix Arcadia for use in its Derbyshire, England site, where it designs pedestrian operated electric tugs for the movement of goods in factories and warehouses worldwide.
Commenting, Dan Evans, Electrical Design Engineer at MasterMover, said, “MasterMover electric tugs are becoming increasingly sophisticated, and we are introducing CANbus to support the introduction of new features such as wireless control and more advanced steering systems. We need to bring more complex wiring harnesses to market more quickly and Arcadia is exactly the design environment that we need to achieve this.”
He continued, “MasterMover’s ability to customise tugs to suit individual customers is an important differentiator. The Arcadia environment makes it quick and easy to adapt the wiring harness to accommodate design changes. The real time simulation feature allows us to see very quickly what impact changes will have before a prototype is built. It is a flexible tool that allows us to offer a flexible service to our customers. The cloud based model allows us to work live from customer sites if we need to. Cadonix stood out as being responsive, flexible and easy to deal with, making adaptations to Arcadia to address our design needs.”
Jon Collins, Business Development Director, Cadonix, responded saying, “MasterMover is a skilled and creative manufacturer that employs innovative design features not seen elsewhere in their sector. To achieve its vision it required an electrical design environment that is flexible, gives clear visibility of design performance before a prototype is built, and handles complexity well. Arcadia was created from the ground up as the vehicle wiring harness design environment for the 21st century, and we are delighted with their endorsement.”
Arcadia CAD is an easy to use, ground-breaking software tool offering schematic design, animated circuit simulation and analysis, electrical networking, harness design and full design rule checking for wire harness layout and manufacture. Using the integrated simulation capabilities, engineers can be assured that their design intent is carried through into the physical implementation. Arcadia interfaces with the most popular 3D MCAD and enterprise wide PLM and ERP tools, allowing projects to transition easily and smoothly into manufacture. Customers can quickly import databases and designs from many legacy systems.
