EPLAN Software

Currently, most electrical design in the UK is performed using simple, two-dimensional CAD systems that produce flat, unintelligent drawings where all accompanying lists and documents have to be researched and assembled separately. EPLAN can perform these functions automatically and instantaneously, compiling schematics, lists and documents from data which only needs to be entered once. Using single data entry and EPLAN’s capability to enforce design rules, the risk of errors – as well as the need to error-check entire projects – is largely eliminated.

EPLAN differs significantly from other electrical design packages as it is database driven. Schematics are built up using intelligent symbols and component representations containing all relevant technical information. As a component is inserted into a schematic, all lists and documentation are updated and cross-linked. The EPLAN database contains every type of component from the IEC symbol library, from a simple fuse to a PLC. Intelligent macros can be created that allow common sub-assemblies like motor drives to be inserted into projects within seconds, generating all wire and terminal numbering and greatly simplifying production of product variants.

Unlike legacy programs that function only as standalone products, EPLAN products can be integrated into a corporation’s existing IT architecture. EPLAN also offers the ability to share data with other engineering disciplines offering even greater efficiency and cost improvements through faster project turnaround times.
