So I’d like to create schematics for electrical equipment we have, but with poor documentation. So in a cabinet I’d have a mains power line, a couple power supplies to provide DC voltages, some National Instruments DAQs and cable connectors going to sensors and I want to create a schematic so we can figure out what’s connected to what without tracing wires for half an hour. I’m not sure KiCAD is the right tool, most of the tutorials are about PCB design and that’s not really what I need, but I’d like something more detailed than an office suite schematic used for a flow chart. I’d like to be able to label wire leads and cable pin outs.
What would be the right tool for this job, and if KiCAD is a good choice are there some tutorials that would point me in the right direction to create what I need? Some of our test equipment can be quite complicated with motors, sensors, safety checks and actuators etc.
Thanks for your help.
