About Schematic Reports

AutoCAD Electrical has multiple schematic reports that you can run.

Select which drawings to process. The report displays options to:

Bill of Materials reports

The Bill of Material reports report only components with assigned BOM information. These reports provide the following BOM-related features:

  • Extract BOM reports on demand, active drawing, or project-wide
  • Extract BOM reports on a per-location basis
  • Change BOM report format
  • Output BOM reports to ASCII report file
  • Export BOM data to a spreadsheet or database program
  • Insert BOM as a table right on an AutoCAD drawing
  • List parent or stand-alone components without catalog information

Component report

This report performs a project-wide extract of all components found on your wiring diagram set. This data includes component tags, location codes, location reference, description text, ratings, catalog information, and block names.

Wire From/To report

If you marked components and/or terminals with location codes, you can make good use of this report. This report first extracts component, terminal, location code, and wire connection information from every drawing in the project set. Then it displays a location list dialog box where you can make your report's "from" and "to" location selections. All the location codes AutoCAD Electrical found on the drawing set are listed on each side of this dialog box. Location "(??)" is also included in the list if AutoCAD Electrical found any component or stand-alone terminal that did not have an assigned location code.

Component Wire List report

This report extracts the component wire connection data and displays it in a dialog box. Each entry shows a connection to a component, the wire number, component tag name, terminal pin number, component location code (if present), and the layer that the connected wire is on.

Connector Plug report

This report extracts plug/jack connection reports and optionally generates pin charts. Since each wire tied to each connector pin displays in the report, each pin has two entries. One entry is for the 'in' wire and the other is for the 'out' wire. To create a more useful report, select the PIN chart 'on' radio button at the bottom of the Report Generator dialog box. Make sure the Remove duplicated pin numbers toggle is checked and click OK. It reformats the report so each pin is listed only once.

PLC I/O Address and Description report

This report lists each PLC module and its beginning and ending I/O address numbers. It scans your drawing set and returns all individual I/O connection points it finds. It includes up to five lines of description text and the connected wire number for each I/O point.

PLC I/O Component Connection report

This report scans the selected drawings and returns information about any components connected to PLC I/O points. Data for the report starts at each wire connection point and follows the connected wire. The first terminal symbol, fuse symbol, or connector symbol that is hit reports in the column marked with default "TERMTAG" label. The first schematic component reports in the column with the "CMPTAG" label. If there are multiple instances, the one closest to the PLC I/O point is the one that shows up in the report column.

PLC Modules Used So Far report

For this report, AutoCAD Electrical quickly scans the wiring diagram set. It returns in a few moments and displays the I/O modules it finds. Each entry shows the beginning and ending address of the module.

Terminal Numbers report

This project-wide, stand-alone report lists all instances of terminals. Each entry includes information tied directly to the terminal such as terminal number, terminal strip number, and location code.

Terminal Plan report

This project-wide, stand-alone report does a wire network extraction. It takes longer to generate, but the report includes wire number and wire layer name information.

Connector Summary report

This report lists a single line for each connector tag along with pins used, maximum pins allowed (if the parent carries the PINLIST information), and a list of any repeated pin numbers used. You can run this report across the project or for a single component.

Connector Details report

This report extracts the component wire connection data and displays it in a dialog box. Each entry shows a connection to a component, the wire number, component tag name, terminal pin number, component location code (if present), and the layer that the connected wire is on.

Cable Summary report

This project-wide cable conductor report gives a report listing all the cable marker tags (parent tags) found.

Cable From/To report

This project-wide cable conductor report lists the "from / to" for each cable conductor. It also lists the parent cable number of the conductor, conductor color code, and wire number (if present).

Wire Label report

This report lists wire markers/labels and can be used to create physical wire or cable labels.
