EPLAN is electrical engineering software for the planning and documentation of electrical design projects.
DBI Control made the decision to enhance its in house design capabilities by investing in EPLAN which has become the preferred standard throughout the sectors of industry we operate in.
To move away from Promise-E, the engineers at DBI Control took additional training in how to optimise their work with the use of EPLAN electric P8 electrical engineering.
A key factor in the decision to changeover was the ability to work alongside our engineering partners to maximises theirs and our efficiency and productivity when working on projects, which has proven to be a great advantage.
EPLAN electric P8 is an electrical engineering design program that enhances efficiency in designing, documenting and managing the automation projects for machinery.
The CAE platform is setting the pace in engineering, it provides the basic functions use throughout electrical engineering, I&C engineering, fluid power engineering or in control cabinet and switchgear engineering.
EPLAN has plenty of advantages over CAD packages including:
The ability to automatically connect, mend or break lines
Automatic creation of reports and BOM’s
Provision of point to point wire lists
Instantaneous device tagging and wire numbering
Using this software has been highly beneficial for DBU Control in a number of ways …
No time is wasted:
A significant reduction of time-consuming operations due to new automatic functions
Less work is needed thanks to the reduced requirements to communicate between technical departments
Shortened design times with reliable quality
Check functionsensure correct outcomes
System-supported minimisation of individual errors
Enhanced flexibility in the organisation of your own work
Simplification of exchange with colleagues speaking another language
DBI Control have successfully moved over to EPLAN, and it has vastly benefitted us in many ways. If you are interested in finding out more about how DBI Control can use EPLAN Engineering Software to enhance your electrical design, please call 01244 288138 or email [email protected].
