Highways in Capital Logic

Posted by Michael Stamper

Michael Stamper Often when we are creating wiring diagrams we are limited by our page size for content - sometimes as small as 8.5″x11″ often 11″x17″.  I have designed using both - and used both in the field.  I can tell you I prefer to draw on 11″x17″ but when I am in the field troubleshooting I would rather handle and carry a smaller stack of paper. A helpful construct now in Mentor Graphic’s Capital Harness System … Read More

Michael Stamper The differences in documentation standards for electrical design are as vast as the number of stars in the sky.  No two are alike, no matter what the claims - there is always “something” different.  If your company provides documentation to more than one customer then the problem is even greater.  The problem is lies with the tools being used to create the drawings.  Typically I see companies trying … Read More

Paul Johnston Standards inject certainty into your working life. Last week I wrote about how the development of standards and the easiest pathway to adoption of them. Adherence to standards is an integral part of successful engineering. The most attractive standards: lack complexity - are easy to understand - clear and straightforward for a person like you turn out to be robust for the niche in which you operate - … Read More

Michael Stamper Back in the day when I was a design engineer one of the more difficult things we had to keep track of were wire colors.  Capital Harness Systems provides several mechanisms for automating this task. When designing electrical systems, mostly for automotive designs, the color of each individual wire is very important.  The color provides visual feedback for the technicians as to what system the circuit … Read More
