We have some basic ecad / AutoCAD Electrical functionality we are looking for, but don't need a full ecad package.

What are some 3rd party add-ons / plugins that would help with this?   Or some general plugins that would help with these features below.

Features:
- Auto number of terminal block and wiring #s
- Symbol library
- Labeling of devices on a panel layout
- Labeling of the symbols


Thanks!

If you have AutoCAD, did you know that you can install the Electrical Toolset for free? Go to https://manage.autodesk.com/products and search for 'Electrical'.

No, I did not.  That's very interesting.  We have LT 2015 right now and looking to see what we can move to.

What are the limitations of AutoCAD with Electrical Toolset vs AutoCAD Electrical?

The toolset will only work with full AutoCAD. AutoCAD Electrical is plain AutoCAD with the toolset installed. If you already installed AutoCAD, installing AutoCAD Electrical just adds the toolset.
