WINSTA by Wago is a modular wiring connection system that merges design, electrical architecture management and usability that comes in two versions with a plug-in to improve WINSTA planning and functions. Courtesy: WagoWinsta designer by Wago assists electricians and architects with large-scale lighting projects by providing detailed electrical planning with Winsta omponents. Winsta s a modular wiring connection system that merges design, electrical architecture management and usability, reducing field wiring times by up to 70% via pre-wired assemblies. Based on standard elcoCAD software from Hannappel Software GmbH of Germany, Winsta esigner allows planners to use existing CAD and building planning data.

Winsta designer contains a symbol library designed specifically for Winsta  omponents that simplifies electrical systems planning. When creating a link, for example, the required lines are automatically determined based on length and the connections - a fast, easy method for compiling a list of required items. Additionally, making subsequent changes to plans is also simple. Parts lists, cable schedules, cable length calculation and other reports can also be generated for planning evaluation.

Two versions of the free Winsta designer are available. One is a plug-in for elcoCAD, providing designers with all the functions available in elcoCAD, as well as new functions for WINSTA planning. This version requires AutoCAD LT (Version 2002 or higher) and elcoCAD. The other, a stand-alone version, may be used if elcoCAD is not available; this version only requires AutoCAD LT (Version 2002 or higher).
