EPLAN Pro Panel: Virtual enclosure layout in 3D [Jan 2012]

January 11, 2012 6:44 am

EPLAN Pro Panel Professional provides manifold possibilities for the field of integrative enclosure planning, pre-assembly and production. Automation technology as well as machine and plant design profit from this new interdisciplinary engineering tool for enclosure and switchgear design that covers all trade-specific requirements
EPLAN Pro Panel Professional convinces through its deep degree of integration in the EPLAN platform and utilises its manifold basic techniques such as the EPLAN device concept, the macro and options technology, access to the EPLAN Data Portal, etc. The design approach is individual: Optionally on the basis of a schematic or directly as layout of the enclosure in 3D. The devices provided for the mounting layout are displayed well-structured in navigators or lists. During placing the system checks whether the positioning is carried out on the correct mounting panel.
The innovative eTouch technology allows components to be comfortably aligned and positioned exactly. Installation regulations and minimum spacing to manufacturer specification are taken into account as are the correct positioning of devices, wire ducts and mounting rails, including collision checks. The overview of all the designed devices and components allows the items to be checked simply on the basis of the parts data. Reports and bills of materials contain precise information also about items that vary in length such as wire ducts or mounting rails. Exact specifications are therefore needed for manufacturing and mounting. Changes in the schematic or mounting layout are included in the entire project. The system informs interdisciplinary and updates the associated drawings, bills of materials and legends automatically if desired thus ensuring uniform and consistent data that are always up to date.
Complete consistencyThe software makes professional 3D layout planning easy even for the occasional user. Production relevant NC data for holes or cut-outs is taken account in the 3D model and can be further processed. In addition to associative mounting diagrams special drilling templates for manufacturing can, for example, also be created. Modifications to housings, doors or mounting panels are transferred directly to the NC production systems via an NC interface. The deep manufacturing integration is also continued in the virtual wiring of the enclosure. The results of the length-optimised virtual wiring and cabling can in turn be used to optimise the schematic. The new quality in enclosure engineering covers all the phases of product development. The realistic 3D representation ensures high-quality data for manufacturing, mounting and operation. It facilitates the consistent creation, provision and maintenance of the documentation and accelerates the product engineering process persistently.
Manifold possibilitiesEPLAN Pro Panel Professional provides manifold possibilities for the field of integrative enclosure planning, pre-assembly and production. Automation technology as well as machine and plant design profit from this new interdisciplinary engineering tool for enclosure and switchgear design that covers all trade-specific requirements. Planning, 3D layout, manufacturing, and mounting merge, through a uniform data basis, to form a fully integrated solution. This accelerates the product creation process – declining costs and rising added value are pre-programmed.
Workflow & integrationThe entire system can be configured using settings to meet the needs of the user, company, and project
MethodologyThe specific working method and methodology used by engineers is integrated in the CAE program, thus ensuring optimal effectiveness within the product engineering process.
Uniform data – automatic synchronisationIntegration is the keyword that combines all the processes of the EPLAN Platform
Reliable planning – correct manufacturingEPLAN Pro Panel Professional makes professional 3D layout planning easy even for the occasional user.
Flexible conductor and cable routingMore flexibility in 3D conductor routing: Aside from conductors, cables, too, can be routed within a 3D mounting layout.
Manufacturing integration for more efficiencyIn EPLAN Pro Panel manufacturing data can be created for NC machines and exported using appropriate interfaces.
Productive data – the be-all and end-all of engineeringWhere would engineering be without the right device data?
Added value at a glanceBenefit from numerous advantages for the virtual enclosure layout in 3D.
Modularisation – the tailored fit for your system solutionAdapt EPLAN Pro Panel Professional perfectly to your workflows in engineering, technical preparations, manufacturing and mounting.

System requirementsEPLAN Pro Panel Professional works with all standard Windows operating systems.
Interdisciplinary project data – consistent and up-to-date Consistency is the key word that brings together all parts of the EPLAN Platform. Devices that were designed in electrical and fluid engineering can now be used directly for the 3D mounting layout. The otherwise customary data synchronisation of the programs involved for example the complex feedback of bill of materials information between systems is now a thing of the past.
The processes of product development in control system design and enclosure engineering are accelerated significantly; after all, redundant data management has been eliminated and, thus, also many related work steps and the typical efforts in connection with “Reverse Engineering”. At the same time, potential errors in project synchronisation can be prevented right from the start.
Reliable planning – correct manufacturingFrom dynamic collision checking to automatic checking of relevant installation conditions: the software makes professional 3D layout planning easy even for the occasional user. Manufacturing-relevant data on drill holes or milling are taken into account in the 3D model and can be edited further. Flexible adaptation to the requirements of manufacturing – in addition to associative mounting diagrams, special drilling templates can also be created.
Another decisive practical advantage: In the creation of master data, manufacturing information is stored only once – even for length-variable parts such as cable ducts or mounting rails. Subsequently, components and NC data are integrated automatically with the respective 3D mounting layout; this ensures fast results and constant quality. Modifications to housing, doors or mounting panels are easily transferred to the appropriate production system via an NC interface – Steinhauer and Perforex are just some examples of the high degree of production integration and available interfaces.
