    Can you please tell me a good and an easy program to design circuit diagrams for a project ?
    I usually deal with PLC, relays, motors, t-blocks, power supplies so I need to design the circuit and the electrical Box so that the worker can assembly it.

    This is what I want,

    Which PLC's?.. Usually they have their own software that draws the ladder diagrams.

    I think he is looking for more of a CAD program for a schematic diagram illustration, with more physical representation of the individual components?
    Apparently to assist in physical assembly.
    PLC S/W usually just offers the logic symbols only.
    NFPA79 describes the two methods.

    Right, I just need it for illustration as blocks connected to other components. Anyways I deal with Fatek, Siemens and Festo CPX PLCs.

    Thanks Bertus and all of you for your fast response and waiting for any new suggestions.

    I am not sure how long the EZ-Schematics is free for but it is only $60.00 to buy after the free trial offer!.
    It looks like it will create what you indicated in the OP.

    DIA wasn't good enough because it doesn't have many electrical drawings.

    EZ is better.

    Any new suggestions will help :)

    I assume you don't use any CAD program?
    If you have one that imports DWG shapes, I have some ACAD part libraries accumulated over the time.

    No I don't. I am still searching for the best program to use so that's why I am asking for the best way to draw these circuits.
