Bentley Building Electrical Systems V8i for AutoCAD Increases Productivity, Saves Time and Money, Is Easy to Use

New Release Is First Comprehensive, Intelligent AutoCAD-Based Electrical Systems Design Package for Commercial, Institutional, and Industrial Facilities

EXTON, Pa., July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Bentley Systems, Incorporated, the leading company dedicated to providing comprehensive software solutions for the infrastructure that sustains our world, today announced the release of Bentley Building Electrical Systems V8i for AutoCAD. This innovative product is the first comprehensive and intelligent AutoCAD-based electrical systems software for the integrated design and analysis, documentation, construction, and management of everything from power distribution and lighting systems to fire detection, security, communications, and other electrical/electronic systems in commercial, institutional, and industrial facilities. Developed for the demanding needs of electrical engineers, designers, and contractors, this easy-to-use software increases productivity, design quality, and accuracy; saves time and money; enables bidirectional interoperability with analysis programs; and facilitates sustainable designs.

Rob Whitesell, senior vice president, Building and Plant Products, Bentley Software, said, "A key advantage of this unique software offering is that it adds electrical design capabilities to a user's existing CAD environment, reducing costs and accelerating implementation. It also provides bidirectional compatibility with MicroStation, AutoCAD, and Revit, and offers an efficient migration path to 3D and Building Information Modeling."


The software's dedicated productivity tools automate and clearly capture design, while its bidirectional interoperability with analysis applications -- including Bentley's building performance analysis software -- shortens the design/analysis process and eliminates transcription errors. At the same time, it ensures compliance with energy efficiency standards such as ASHRAE 90.1 and LEED, facilitating sustainable design.


Bentley Building Electrical Systems V8i for AutoCAD makes CAD-based design of electrical systems easy and intuitive. However, this stand-alone software also provides advanced capabilities that empower users to design with greater freedom by:

    --  Facilitating stepwise refinement of design, minimizing rework by
        allowing users to add design detail as it becomes available;
    --  Making it possible for users to focus on engineering design versus
        drafting, increasing productivity and creativity;
    --  Facilitating not only transparent access to electrical design
        information on demand, but also the reuse of design data.
