Sager Electronics, a North American distributor of interconnect, power, electromechanical and thermal solutions and provider of value-add solutions, has announced the addition of ECAD (electronic computer-aided design) files to its sager.com and power.sager.com product catalogs.
Sager Electronics worked with SamacSys, a supply frame company and developer of software tools for creating and managing electronic component ECAD data, to implement this new tool. With just a click of an icon, engineers on the Sager websites will be able to download an ECAD file directly into their CAD tool, request an ECAD file build for any parts where a CAD file does not exist and view a 3D model of the product image.
Brendan Lilly, director of eBusiness for Sager Electronics, remarked, “The integration of this tool highlights Sager’s commitment to supporting our engineering customers and their product data requirements. Offering engineers the ability to view 3D models and directly download electronic CAD files into their software provides significant benefits during the design process, including ease of collaboration, quicker project completion, and higher quality designs.”
“Historically, a design engineer using paper or PDF documentation could spend hours manually working on a schematic or layout. Through an asset delivery engine like SamacSys, easy accessibility to digital designs with a click and place mechanism can turn a 60-minute entry into a 60-second process,” stated Bruce Kellar, Sager Electronics senior vice president of sales. “We’re excited to offer our customers this valuable, time-saving tool.”
