CADUNITY is a marketplace where you can buy and sell article data in a predefined standard. The working group guarantees that all data fulfil your high-quality requirements. The standard allows you to deploy the data right away.


As soon as the marketplace is online, you can register and become part of the community – as a purchaser or as a seller of data. The exact procedure has not been determined yet, but feel free to leave us your contact details and we will provide you with free access to our LIVE-Version of CADUNITY and the exemplary project.


The members of the CADUNITY working group are SMS group GmbH, SMS digital GmbH, Blumenbecker Automatisierungstechnik GmbH and case-team GmbH. They combine long-time practical experience in the ECAD sector with digital expertise to break new ground.


The aim of the CADUNITY standard is the determination of the data fields, contents and values as well as the design guidelines for the realization of a mechatronic article base. It serves as the basis for the horizontal integration of the value-adding network between electrical engineering and control cabinet production beyond company boundaries. The standard refers to the display of circuit diagrams (e.g. basic project, sheet layout, macros).

The standard is especially important for the generation of circuit diagrams, as e.g. circuit diagram generators always run according to fixed rules and structures. It is not a universal standard for all industries, but an approach which has been developed and favored by established ECAD engineers.


Quality-assured means that all data fields of the article data are viable and its content has been proven. The operators of CADUNITY affix a seal to quality-assured data. The data must be complete and correct in accordance with the underlying design guideline/ standard.
