Zuken E3 Series Module

The 2008 version of the E³.series modules for wire harness design has been dramatically improved to help designers achieve 100% design reliability. E³.cable 2008 brings the introduction of intelligent customized functionality expanding beyond the already strong machinery sector into the automotive and mil/aero industries. These industries will benefit from functionality that enables them to factor in specific design requirements shaped by the physical nature of their end products, industry legislation and safety mandates.

For the design of wire harnesses for cars, trucks and specialized vehicles, the focus is on delivering design time savings by adding industry-specific functionality to eliminate time spent on tedious manual activities. For the design of airplanes, helicopters and military applications, the emphasis is on reducing effort, increasing design quality and guaranteeing 100% end product reliability.

A standard car typically has a large number of inliners; placing these within connections historically took several minutes each. In E³.cable 2008, Zuken includes a function that will simply add these and does all the background work; reducing the time to complete these tasks to seconds. Another capability that will benefit all users of E³.cable, particularly those in the automotive sector, is the ability to copy/insert complete sub circuits as an original, allowing users to add system level details without touching the top level and without having to insert sheets manually.

For mil/aero applications that typically feature many parallel connections, designs often appear cluttered where connections are difficult to make; the latest version of E³.cable eliminates this problem by introducing the ability to allow shielded pins in the form of daisy chains. In addition to the aesthetic improvements, this significantly improves design quality and reliability. Specifically for the military sector, users no longer have to use workarounds to display connectors to that conform to industry MIL-standards, as this form of connector symbol display is now just a simple click option.
