Nexans Visio Templates Updated

NVT 4.0 - free download

Nexans is pleased to announce the release of the latest version of Nexans Visio Templates (NVT), a free download which works in conjunction with Microsoft Visio. The tool enables users to create professional rack layout drawings and cabling schematics incorporating Nexans products.

NVT v4.0 simplifies the design methodology through its additional tools which include:

  • updated libraries (Including a new one for LANactive products)
  • a new action to easily load modular patch panels with compatible components
  • a new product search tool to easily find any product shape
  • unique intelligent master shapes
  • improved Bill of Material (BoM) export from Visio to Excel
  • hyperlinks to datasheets
  • an updated help file describing all the features of the tool
  • compatibility with other tools

New Advantages

NVT v 4.0 offers the following enhanced benefits:

The stencils (also referred to as libraries), grouped by product range, have been updated. The six previous stencils have been updated to include new product releases, and an additional stencil has been added for LANactive products. NVT therefore includes : Cabinets, Voice & ZD boxes; LANmark Copper; LANmark-OF; LANsense; EMAC; essential and LANactive.
To minimize the number of shapes, most of the master drawings include a product subfamily where a specific product can easily be selected using a ‘right mouse click’ menu.

Diagram Window
The diagram window now contains a brand new Product Search tool. The Product Selector automatically displays the data of the shape dropped on the drawing. The Document Explorer provides the list of items included on your cabinet drawing and provides a quick and easy way to export of the Bill of Materials to an Excel sheet. When the Document node on the Document Explorer tab is selected, the Export to Excel action now lists the BOM Items for the whole document (i.e. the sum of items on all drawings in the file).

3D Shapes
The updated NVT 3D tool includes a specific template with different drawing scales, and a stencil providing 3D drawings of the main Nexans cabling components (new LANactive switch, cabinet, some patch panels, LANsense analyser, connection lines,..).

Requirements & Compatibility
NVT v4.0 requires MS Visio 2010, 2013 or 2016 to be installed.
A choice of 32 or 64 bit installation files are available acording to your software configuration.
