What's New in EPLAN Electric P8
Propelled by 20-plus years of solid experience, constant innovation and industry leadership in the electrical CAE field, EPLAN takes you to a new dimension in design automation where your ability to create, manage and document your controls hardware projects will reach new levels of efficiency, flexibility and global integration. You'll gain unprecedented productivity, quality and accuracy in the design of your electrical schematics and all associated reports, lists and forms.
Discover the next generation of EPLAN software - Here are just a few of the cutting edge capabilities you'll find in the new EPLAN Electric P8.
Project Options Module: Especially beneficial to machine builders who manufacture different versions of the same equipment, Project Options module enables users to automatically generate complete project documentation for different product variants in a fraction of the time it would take to re-design or modify them. With this innovative technology, the user first defines the electrical schematics for different machine configurations (product variants). Then, to design a new machine or modify an existing one, he simply selects the option(s) for that product with a few mouse clicks in a central dialog box, and the system automatically displays (or removes) the associated schematic sections and corresponding data throughout the entire project.
Macro Variant Technology: Slash design time with EPLAN macros (sections of circuits), each having up to eight graphical variants with pre-engineered data. Insert, for example, a macro of a motor started circuit and select the variant containing the schematic representation as well as the appropriate engineering data for sizing the VFDs, circuit breakers, fuses, overloads, forward/reversing starter, etc. EPLAN Electric P8 will then apply all of the pre-engineered data from that variant to your design.
True Multi-User Access: Collaborative engineering at its best! Multiple EPLAN users can simultaneously work on the same project and instantly view the changes made by the others in real time.
Change of Standard: EPLAN Electric P8 converts schematics drawn according to European IEC standards into North American JIC standards and vice versa by automatically switching the symbols and orientation of your drawings.
Pre-Schematic Engineering: Have the flexibility to work in the order your design process dictates. Start with a single line drawing, a BOM, a mounting panel or a schematic and EPLAN Electric P8 will seamlessly integrate and cross-reference all project data.
PLC Processing & Bus Topology Representation: EPLAN Electric P8 features a completely revamped PLC/bus topology management capability for centrally processing the automation components of a project in a simple and organized fashion. It also allows for consistent electrical project data exchange with PLC programming software products
Complete Unicode Compatibility: Submit your schematics in any language. From Chinese wiring diagrams to Russian bill of materials, EPLAN Electric P8 translates everything to make it even easier to collaborate with your international partners.
Single-/Multi-line Drawings: EPLAN Electric P8 represents the connectivity of devices in single- and/or multi-line environments and manages all the properties of your conductors while switching back and forth throughout your project.
And if you think these are impressive, wait till you see the comprehensive list of EPLAN Electric P8's all powerful features. Whether you are looking to reduce your design time by up to 70% or implement a complete solution that will integrate with your entire engineering process for exponential productivity gains and cost savings, EPLAN Electric P8 scales to fit virtually any budget and requirements set regardless of your company's size.
