EPLAN macros launched

Being one of the world’s leading suppliers of control and automation devices and systems, we manufacture a comprehensive range of products which are used in a variety of applications from packaging machinery for food, drinks and pharmaceuticals, to production lines for vehicles, consumer electronics and general industry.

Macros for the EPLAN system

As part of our continuing commitment to you, we are now offering macros for the EPLAN system. The macros, which are accessible via EPLAN’s online Data Portal, contain data that enables designers to drag-and-drop pre-produced drawings of Omron components into diagrams, plans, flowcharts and other documents. Accurate and up-to-date documentation can thus be produced faster and more efficiently, with translations available for businesses that trade internationally.


Macros for over 500 of our products are already available, including panel components, PLCs, drives and controllers, as well as devices for the Sysmac automation platform. It’s planned that macros for approximately 3000 more Omron devices will be included from March 2014.

Cut costs and improve efficiency during design

Component drawings and data are inserted as needed, and the system handles all configuration and formatting. This will help you to cut costs at the design stage of a panel and both to improve efficiency and to reduce time to market.
