ECT's top-of-the-line product, promis•e, is intelligent software for control system design. With promis•e, a user can generate control system schematics, panel layouts, bills of material, wire lists, terminal plans, and more in record time, because promis•e automates the design process.

promis•e provides a set of powerful drawing functions including symbol libraries, macros, cut & paste editing, and automatic line (wire) breaking. But in addition, promis•e automatically performs many non-value added tasks such as ID assignment, cross referencing, wire numbering and list generation. These tedious operations are performed not only much faster but with fewer errors. This intelligence is what sets promis•e apart from ordinary mechanical CAD solutions.

promis•e seamlessly integrates the elements of the total control system design. By clicking on cross reference links, the Navigator function takes you from one occurrence of an ID (say a relay coil) to the next occurrence of that ID (such as an auxiliary contact) on another schematic page. You can also jump from a schematic symbol to that same item in a panel layout or wiring diagram drawing, or from a displayed part number to the full database screen for that part. The result? You work rapidly with maximum efficiency.

promis•e is a multi-discipline design tool, suitable for electrical, process control, hydraulic and pneumatic applications.

A truly international solution, promis•e fully supports both IEC/DIN and ANSI/JIC page and symbol formats. Dialogs and menus can be set for various languages including English, German, French, Italian and Spanish.
The full-featured promis•e software is available in two versions:

promis•e Add-On

Running as an application inside AutoCAD®, promis•e Add-on control system design software allows AutoCAD users to remain in a familiar environment while accessing the full functionality of promis•e.

promis•e Standalone
A self-contained software system, promis•e Standalone requires no additional CAD software to deliver its powerful control system design functionality.
