WAGO Smart Designer Configuration Software

The cornerstone of any switchgear unit is individualized electrical planning. WAGO consistently offers you all the data, software tools and interfaces – from electrical and mechanical planning to ordering.

With WAGO Smart Designer, the configuration software for WAGO’s electrical connection and automation technology products, we offer access to projects at any time and from anywhere in the world – no installation necessary.

  • Automatic terminal strip construction through interfaces to various CAE tools (e.g., EPLAN, WS CAD etc.)
  • Realistic Planning of WAGO Products in 3D
  • Always available, always up-to-date: access to projects at any time and from anywhere in the world – no installation necessary
  • Plausibility checks prevent planning errors

Configure Individual Products

  • Always available, always up-to-date: The Smart Designer online configuration software offers access to projects at any time and from anywhere in the world – no installation necessary.
  • Easy cooperation on a configuration project, even at different development sites
  • Save time and avoid errors with location-independent project processing, without different processing statuses, data exchange via email etc.
  • Get your bearings quickly and save time with a selection of pre-defined standard views.
  • Item numbers always up-to-date
  • Plausibility checks prevent planning errors.
  • Insert user-specific products as placeholders.

Familiar Planning in the CAE Tool

Use your familiar CAE tool for planning circuit diagrams. WAGO offers you high-quality CAE product data and CAE macros. Interfaces to several CAE tools (e.g., ePLAN and WS CAD) allow planned terminal strips to be built up automatically in the Smart Designer configuration software.

  • Interfaces to Various Systems
  • Instead of entering item numbers, use the bidirectional interface to EPLAN to plan faster with function definitions.
  • Pass the circuit diagrams to Smart Designer, construct terminal strips automatically and save a great deal of time.
  • Plausibility checks help you avoid errors in your planning.
  • Automatic transfer of the printing data from the CAE tool to the Smart Printer thermal transfer printer minimizes time and errors.


Export parts lists and assembly diagrams directly from the Smart Designer configuration software to create production documents or support ordering for the purchasing process.
Benefit from the automatic import of item numbers for individual components into your ERP system and from complete, standards-compliant PDF documentation (e.g., per FSF standard for track and rail vehicles).


Marking control cabinets is easy with the WAGO Smart Printer thermal transfer printer: Depending on how you work, you have the option of printing markings from a large variety of systems (with a standard CAE tool, the Smart Designer online configuration software and the Smart Script marketing software).

You also benefit from a printer with a low purchase price that is universally suitable for marking all items contained in the control cabinet.


CAD Design

Use your usual CAD tool to import your configuration from Smart Designer. This is possible without exception thanks to the availability of various CAD formats (neutral and native 2D/3D CAD formats).

Technical and commercial item information is available to you as high-quality data.

You determine the product data granularity yourself.
