FireCAD was designed to fill the void in CAD automation tools for the fire and security industry. What does FireCAD offer that makes it such an outstanding alternative to the traditional AutoCAD program? It starts with the essential features. Here are the first of the essential features in our fire alarm design tool.

The Device Palette

Your fire alarm project can have dozens of devices, and you need a way to bring up any of them quickly on demand. That’s what the Device Palette offers: a searchable bank of all your project devices. To use the Device Palette, simply click a device button and insert the device into the drawing. There are additional options available to rotate the device and keep your attributes level. If any of your devices have output circuits, they will automatically prompt for an optional panel or module name.

Take the time to read more on how to achieve device placement in FireCAD using the Device Palette.

The Connection Palette

Once your devices are placed, it’s time to connect your devices to their corresponding circuits. The feature that enables this is the connection palette. The connection palette is your control center for device connection. It has intuitive controls that guide you through connecting and disconnecting the circuit seamlessly. You’ll be able to configure limits right there in the same interface for each device, and there are additional features for revisions and modifications. See a snippet of this FireCAD interface for connection controls, and get more information on this outstanding fire alarm design feature.
