Wiring diagram software with built-in stencils for fast and efficient electrical wiring diagram design. Easy to create wiring plans, schematics, circuit diagrams and more.

Normally wiring diagram refers to electrical schematic or circuits diagram. It uses simplified conventional symbols to visually represent electrical circuits, and shows how components are connected with lines. Sometimes wiring diagram can also refer to the architectural wiring plan. It shows the locations and interconnections of outlets, lighting, electrical equipment and the wire routes based on a building plan. A good wiring diagram has to communicate information quickly, clearly, and with low chance of misunderstanding.

Fast and Simple Wiring Diagram Software

Lots of evidences have proven Edraw to be a super user-friendly wiring diagram software. First, you start with more than 1000 elegant and standardized wiring diagram symbols. Second, you use the easiest drag-and-drop method. Third, it's easy to create precise drawing with the help of "snap and glue", "auto spacing and alignment", "grids and dynamic guides". Fourth, you can publish the drawing to high quality PDF, PNG, SVG, Html, Word, PPT, Visio and more. Fifth, it's capable for big-size, complicated and multi-page drawings. Here is the screenshot of the software interface.

How to Create Wiring Diagram

1. Start a New Drawing Canvas:

On the File menu, point to New.-> Click Engineering, and then double click the icon of Basic Electrical Diagram.

Start new page

2. Draw Under "Engine" Theme:

Go to Page Layout menu, from the pre-defined theme gallery, choose "Engine" theme.

Use Engineering Theme

3. Add Wiring Diagram Symbols:

Drag and drop shapes from the left libraries onto the canvas. Close the libraries you don't need. Open more libraries from the Engineering category. Resize shapes by dragging the green handles.

Add New Symbols

4. Connect Symbols:

To connect symbols, you can either use the Connector tool under Home menu, or drag lines from the "Transmission Path" symbol library.

Connect Symbols

5. Customize Existing Symbols:

Some symbols have lots of variables which you can choose from the floating buttons. You can easily resize, recolor or rotate the symbols as you like.

Customize Symbols

6. Draw New Symbols:

If any special symbol is not included in our pre-defined library, you can draw it on your own. Our drawing toolkit allows you to create any symbol you want.

Draw Custom Symbols

7. Save and Export:

Click Save on File tab to save as the default format. Click Export and Send button to export the wiring diagram as graphics, PDF, PPT, web documents and so on.
