Start and objective: Automation
A starting point in automation is EPLAN Engineering Configuration One which enables the automatic generation of electrical and fluid power schematics.
EPLAN Engineering Configuration (EEC) at its highest level is an integration platform for establishing product structures, managing variants and configuring products.
EPLAN Platform ensures data consistency across all disciplines. With EPLAN Electric P8 (electrical engineering), EPLAN Fluid (fluid power engineering), EPLAN Preplanning (PCT engineering), EPLAN Pro Panel (control cabinet engineering) and EPLAN Harness proD (cable harness engineering) all systems function using standardised data.
• Simplifies routine tasks
• Standardises and automates
• No media disruptions caused by cross-disciplinary approaches
• Speeds up workflows through parallel processing
• Time gains across the entire product creation chain
• Secure company-wide access to project data
• Variant management via functional engineering
EPLAN Data Portal
The EPLAN Data Portal is a web service integrated into EPLAN Platform which currently provides online access to data on around 550,000 devices from around 100 component manufacturers. The data can be inserted into documentation via "drag & drop". All products anchored in EPLAN Platform are able to access the web service in the same way. The easy inclusion of components in project data reduces design effort and increases the quality of machine and system documentation.
