Eplan Platform version 2.7
The new Eplan Platform version 2.7 is now available. Features include 19 software languages, numerous detail upgrades and bidirectional connections to automation technology – including to TIA Portal by Siemens and to Melsoft IQ by Mitsubishi.
Designed for consistent digitisation and an interdisciplinary focus for engineering processes, the platform allows data to be continually enhanced along the entire value chain process.
Eplan Platform solutions use a uniform database which allows project information to be transferred along the entire process – from design engineering to manufacturing and even maintenance.
There have been numerous improvements in individual topic areas. Using the expanded definition possibilities for schematic templates in electrical and fluid power engineering, users can more easily standardise their projects and reuse data 1:1. Macro boxes, for example, can now be designed as polylines and allow users to make customised definitions for schematic templates, enabling faster standardisation.
These templates can also help users start to utilise Eplan Cogineer, an engineering solution for automated schematic creation.
A new piping module is one of the highlights of the latest version. Users benefit from more detailed plant documentation that includes piping data even earlier in the process. Handling for wire harness engineering has also been made more straightforward. Heat-shrink tubing allows plugs to easily be assigned in the 2D and 3D design environments, and the viewing options for connection hardware have been improved.>
