PowerStar and PowerNet may be used as single line diagram drawing software "straight out of the box". After installation, you can use it to create and edit circuit single line diagrams. Print the circuit or save it as a circuit file for future use. It is free, as we are aware of the very often and urgent need for a quick and easy way to draw a circuit. When your circuit progresses to a design project, we hope you will buy the license. It will pay for itself when it saves you an hour's work or two.
The software combo is free to educational institutions offering electrical engineering and technology courses. We only require a request from an authorized official of the organization (verifiable through published information such as website). We hope to improve our products from feedback with their use in the classroom.
