Harness Design Rule Checks

Built-in intelligent design rule checks ensure the harness is engineered for manufacture including correctly sized terminals, seals and cavity plugs as well as insulation and bundle covering sizes.

wire harness design software splices

Auto Splice Specification and Illustration

Splices can be automatically selected both for Ultrasonic & Crimp splice types. Arcadia will automatically assign the correct type and diameter of Heat-Shrink-Sleeve from your customer profile.

See wire-entry information with auto splice illustrations to assist with manufacturing.

Reverse Engineering Capability

Arcadia has introduced a unique process to create a harness when
only a physical sample is available in an easy way, which allows the harness drawing to be built to scale from a photograph.

Generate Wiring Harnesses Directly From The Schematic

Identify a schematic to build your harness from, specify which connectors & splices should be used and added including their part number, cavity table & view.

Built-In Component Database

Arcadia comes with an integrated component database which stores all your part information including parametric information such as linked terminals, their wire ranges and linked parts for your connectors.

This database drives the automatic selection of terminals and seals in your drawings and reports as well as powering the Design Rule Checks & validation.

See all data for any connector live on your screen with no need to hunt through paper catalogues or websites ever again.
