Drag and drop even more pre-drawn components

7,500 macros now available in EPLAN parts data library

We added almost 4,000 parts to the EPLAN online library, resulting in more than 7,500 macros available free-of-charge from our website.

“This is another powerful example of our long-term commitment to the panel building industry,” says Lars de Bruin, Marketing Manager Panel Solutions EMEA. “We are continually bringing innovation to the panel building process, and this latest initiative supports the key role that EPLAN plays in the panel design phase from our customers’ point of view.”

This latest panel builder support initiative comes at a time when creating documentation for complex equipment is increasingly a major challenge, especially when panel builders are working to a tight budget. It is even more of an issue for international panel builders who need to produce documentation that requires careful and accurate translation.

Speeding the design process

“Depending on the industry, between 10% and 50% of orders may be under intense time pressure,” says de Bruin. ”Accurate product information – including 2D and 3D representations – is essential for efficient planning and control of panel building. It also ensures effective cross-discipline data exchange, improves overall project quality, and speeds up the engineering process.” 

That’s why we offer more than 7,500 macros for the EPLAN system, enabling users to drag and drop pre-drawn components into their own document or project, and create accurate and up to date documentation for Omron-powered panels and machines.

One can select products out of a list up to a maximum of 50 unless you select the product group download (which has no limit).

Parts data for our major products, including all Value Design products launched in 2016, are directly imported into leading panel design software packages such as EPLAN and (soon) also Zuken E3. One will find both 2D and 3D CAD files in the most popular formats, making it easy to optimise the space available in the electrical control panel. The functionality of the online library has been significantly improved. One can check the release date of the part and avoid any customisation compatibility issues with upgraded parts.
