Control system and instrumentation design software

IDO Suite 5.0 creates and manages instrument datasheets, loop diagrams, I/O lists and more.


ECE Design Announces Instrumentation Design Office (IDO) Suite 5.announces the release of Instrumentation Design Office (IDO) Suite 5.0. This control system and instrumentation design software creates and manages design data and documentation including instrument datasheets, loop diagrams, termination diagrams, hookup drawings, I/O lists, instrument index, cable schedules, bills of materials, and other reports.

The IDO 5.0 Suite includes three integrated modules:

  • Instrument Engineer manages tasks typically handled during a project lifecycle, including instrument index data entry and reports. This module also includes process data import/entry, which can be linked to user defined datasheets and Microsoft Excel import/export functionality. This is normally the only IDO module required by an engineer during a project, according to the company.

  • Instrument Designer manages all tasks typically handled by an instrument designer, including CAD drawing creation, drawing list management, updating of revisions and printing of CAD files for loop diagrams, termination diagrams, Hookups (installation details) with bills of materials etc. This module automates the drafting process and is normally only used by a designer.

  • Wiring Manager handles all tasks typically carried out by an instrument designer related to detail cable, wiring and termination design. This includes definition of equipment terminal arrangements (field devices, junction boxes, marshalling cabinet and panel devices such as relays, IS barriers & I/O modules), cable creation and termination, cross-patch/internal wiring etc., generation of cable schedules and cable, cable gland and cable gland adapter bills of materials, and creation of cable block diagrams (without requiring CAD).

IDO Suite 5.0 is developed out of Australia by iDesignOffice Pty Ltd. ECE Design's products and services serve the needs
