Oxford, England,8 January 2015 – Cadonix Ltd, the Cloud based automotive harness CAD specialist, today named Protected vehicle and Survivability Solution specialist Jankel as the latest customer to adopt its Arcadia design environment.
Jankel Senior Electrical Engineer Matt Smith said, “Jankel requires a state of the art electrical CAD environment that fully supports our careful test and release procedures. Cadonix Arcadia stood out in terms of ease of use and flexibility, offering full electrical systems analysis, and supporting design for manufacture. A key requirement for us was interfacing the tool to our SAP purchasing environment and SolidWorks EPDM (Enterprise Product Data Management) which we use to store and manage our engineering data. Cadonix worked with us to implement this functionality. The support we’ve had from the Cadonix team has been exceptional, and they have been very supportive in adapting Arcadia to suit our specific needs.”
Jon Collins, Sales Director, Cadonix, added, “Jankel undertook a thorough market review, and once again found that Arcadia led in terms of flexibility, ease of use and compatibility with other design environments in use at the company. Each wiring harness design team works in a different way, and we see adapting Arcadia to suit each customer’s individual needs, as a core aspect of what we do.”
Jankel has facilities in the UK, US and Jordan which provide lifesaving protection solutions for people working in dangerous conditions all over the world. Their capabilities range from lightweight military and security platforms to blast mitigating seats. Although initially most electrical design is associated with the vehicles, Jankel expects that in the future its seats will include more electric features. Many of its vehicle platforms are based on production SUVs like the Jeep J8 or the Toyota 200 Landcruiser , which are fitted with protection appropriate to the intended use environment. A strong team undertake the associated electrical design. This can include converting the vehicle to 24V operation and designing a complete and fully sealed military wiring harness. In other vehicles, the existing wiring harness is provided with additional protection, and accessories such as military or IR lighting systems, ‘blues and twos’, power management systems and other features are added.
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.
