    SLIDE 2 CONTENT:

    Initiatives

    Improve time to market by increasing designers’ productivity in compliance checks
    Manage late stage design iterations and identify potential issues early in the process to reduce costs
    Continue to improve product quality while designing more compact products requiring more exhaustive electrical path checks

    Solution

    PTC Creo replaces a manual process to identify electrical non-compliances
    PTC Creo was selected because it is the only virtual prototyping solution that provides ability to check insulation compliance on complex mechatronic systems
    PTC Creo enables ECAD and MCAD collaboration, essential to design electric systems with embedded electronics

    Results

    Schneider Electric doubled its productivity using PTC Creo for electrical compliance checks, but still manages some standard electrical compliance checks by other means
    PTC Creo raised early electrical non-compliance detection rate from 70% to 100%
    Schneider Electric checks compliance as far as printed circuit copper tracks, imported in PTC Creo by custom means

    Before using PTC Creo, there was 1 chance over 3 to identify a creepage distance problem at product manufacturing stage, and, as a consequence, to delay the project by one month, which corresponds to a cost of approx. 100 000 €.

    The way Schneider Electric performs today electrical compliancy checks on printed circuit copper tracks is for the moment a workaround implying to transfer copper tracks from ECAD software to PTC CAD tool via idf files, that is not a market-standard. Schneider Electric counts on the IDX standard support in PTC Creo to have a more unified process, which is expected in PTC Creo 4.0 release.

    PTC Creo Spark Analysis also facilitates the clearance and creepages documentation and report process. It helps comprehensively identifying and quantifying clearance and creepage non-compliancies.

    Regression studies are also significantly facilitated and helps maintain the products even if the teams are different.
