Browser Add-On wscaduniverse GO

By 2. December 2022January 13th,

Inserting part data directly from the manufacturer’s website into your part database has never been easier and faster!

With the world’s largest electrical CAD library, it is easy to download and use the proper part for your project immediately – as long as you know the part number. But if you only know the properties of the part (current, voltage, connection type, etc.) – necessary for your project – then the part has to be configured – based on the properties. To configure parts, there is no better way than with the manufacturer’s component configurator. These offers numerous filtering options to find the correct part number. The configurator can usually be found on the component manufacturer’s website.

wscaduniverseGOWith the browser extension wscaduniverse GO (Add-On for Mozilla Firefox* or Chrome*) you can search for parts in the electrical CAD library directly from any web page, without the need to copy and paste the search term. Simply highlight the desired text, e.g. the part number, and right-click on the new entry in your browser’s context menu.

The search results will be opened in a new tab and can be easily added to the cart.
