SIGNON OLAcad is a high-performance software platform that enables the fast and efficient design of overhead line systems for local and long-distance rail traffic.
More and more projects in Germany require the use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) – a cooperative form of working in which digital models are created, managed and communicated based on relevant structural information.
To make sure you can meet these requirements in the future, OLAcad supports the BIM design process right from the start.
Designing an overhead line system is a complex and demanding task. Our powerful SIGNON OLAcad design software simplifies the design process and makes it more efficient by using logical referencing of individual objects. With integrated libraries for different construction methods and different types of drawings, OLAcad can be used to design all types of overhead line systems.
SIGNON OLAcad was developed for designing overhead contact systems on railway lines and in large railway stations used by both local and long-distance traffic, as well as for designing complex crossings and tram depots. With years of experience and a willingness to drive innovation, SIGNON is your partner for railway-specific software solutions. Design with the professionals — design with SIGNON OLAcad.

Our trainers use OLAcad every day for time-critical design projects where no two assignments are ever the same.
If you’re looking to learn about OLAcad quickly and efficiently, why not join our OLAcad training course?
Intermediate knowledge transfer phase: Over 3 to 6 weeks, you’ll test OLAcad independently (with our trainers available to provide support)
We also offer virtual Q&A sessions for more experienced users. Each session lasts around 4 hours with an OLAcad trainer/expert on hand to answer your team’s questions.
You can address any issues that arose during the OLAcad test phase. Our trainers will offer answers and work with you to find solutions that are right for your project.
Get in touch with us and we’ll find the training course that’s right for you!
Most support enquiries can be answered directly by our experienced OLAcad power users, or we can analyse individual problems by taking a look at your project files.
We’ll check any errors occurring, for example, by analysing your project files. We’ll tell you how to resolve the issue. If you feel something’s missing, or if you have any criticisms, suggestions or praise, just let us know – after all, clear communication is a core part of good customer service.
