In electrical planning, a wide variety of information is required time and time again for the products that are used. Sometimes it is a technical data sheet in order to get the right dimensions for a product. Sometimes a certificate is required in order to guarantee consistent verification. In each case it is a matter of downloading additional documents or graphic files for a product.

Tips for you!

Fast access to the required data and a speedy download are important in order to save time. 

For precisely this purpose, Siemens offers support in the form of the CAx Download Manager. This makes the compilation and downloading of important documents faster and more efficient than ever before. 

Use our CAx Download Manager. This enables you to request different kinds of data, such as certificates, manuals, 3D data and much more, for a number of products at the same time. Simply copy an existing list of products and paste it in your download request, or upload your parts list directly to the CAx Download Manager as an Excel file (csv format). The wizard then guides you step by step in a user-friendly procedure through the selection of the data types and languages and, once you have specified a job name, it creates your individual download package. This service is available to you free of charge.

Configure your own download!

Often, different data or graphics are required depending on the standards applicable in different countries.

ANSI internal circuit diagrams, for example, look different to those for IEC.


In order to satisfy the multitude of requirements that exist, Siemens provides numerous data for the standards applicable in different countries. This includes the following:


-       Technical specifications for UL and IEC (hp and kW, mm² and AWG, etc.)

-       Internal circuit diagrams in ANSI and IEC format

-       Corresponding UL and IEC certificates

You can request as many as 1000 articles simultaneously. The time taken depends on the number of articles and the types of data selected. As soon as your download package has been compiled, you receive e-mail notification with a corresponding download link.    

Via the CAx Download Manager you can download all relevant engineering data formats at the same time. These are:


  • 2D dimension drawing (DXF)
  • 3D model (STEP)
  • Internal circuit diagram (DXF)
  • EPLAN macro (EDZ)
  • Data sheet (PDF)
  • Manual / operating instructions (PDF)
  • Characteristic curve (PDF)
  • Certificate (PDF)
  • Product photograph (PNG)
  • Product master data (eCl@ss, CSV, XLS, ECAD)
