E3.Schematic / E3.Panel

Watch now

Avoid electrical panel design errors with a connected circuit diagram and panel layout - with E3.panel

When selecting panel components, it’s often impossible to tell if they are correct until the manufacturing process begins. With a direct connection between the circuit diagram and panel layout such errors are recognized much earlier and thereby avoided. Precisely calculated wire lengths with checked wire cross-sections enables wires to be labelled and assembled in advance. This leads to a dramatic reduction in wiring time.

E3.series eCheck

Watch now

Detect wire and component tolerance violations in the early design phase while reducing costs - with E3.eCheck

This webinar will explore the benefits of an electrically aware design solution. Some systems may already check automatically if, for example, the wire cross-section used can be connected to the connector used, and whether the needed crimp parts are available, or if there is a short in the schematic. But this is not enough! Your design tool must verify that components are operating within design tolerances.

What you will learn:

  • Benefits of electrically aware design
  • How to detect wire and component tolerance violations
  • Methods of optimizing wire gauges to save weight and costs
  • Ways to analyse designs fast and efficiently
  • Measures to implement to ensure operation within safety levels.

Mechatronic - Streamlining Electrical System Design through Mechanical & Electrical Collaboration

E3.series - ECAD/MCAD integration

Watch now

Electrical and mechanical engineering departments have a tendency to work independently, communicating in a limited and often uncoordinated fashion, which can lead to costly, time-consuming errors. In the aerospace industry, minimizing these types of errors is critical to the design and manufacture of an effective product from the onset; one that can be efficiently manufactured and easily replicated where required. The ideal design process involves full collaboration between the electrical and mechanical departments.

What you will learn:

  • How electrical and mechanical design tools are moving to a more collaborative environment
  • How electrical cable and harness design data can be utilized by 3D mechanical design tools
  • How concurrent engineering reduces design development time and reduces errors
  • How cables and harnesses can be designed correctly from the outset

Functional Block Diagrams to Detailed System Wiring Diagrams – A New and Integrated Approach

e3series functional design blocksWatch now

In the area of System Design, System Engineers have accomplished their design tasks using an array of different tools including spreadsheets, diagramming programs and “dumb” graphics. Integration between block diagrams and interconnect and system wiring diagrams has typically involved manual operations resulting in significant time and cost burdens. With the new Functional Design capability built into E³.series, Zuken introduces a new, integrated, solution for system design that integrates the creation of Block Diagrams with the generation of Interconnect Diagrams and System Wiring Diagrams.

Wire / Harness Design Automation Basics I

Watch now

This webinar will cover the logical part of the wire harness design process. At the beginning of the engineering process, we develop a system using functions and signals. With the information from the functional design, next we create a wiring diagram. Assigning components to the functions will lead to specific connection types. Additional we will import information from a PCB layout for further use. Using plugs and mating connectors as complex components with many additional parts and a wide range of crimp parts. Selecting Crimp parts according to the wire cross section. At the end of the design flow of the logical part we use the topology and wiring path to assign wires and cables to a harness.

What you'll learn

  • How to begin a design by using functions and signals
  • Creating a schema based on the information from a functional design
  • How to import and use data from PCB Layout
  • Using connectors and their additional parts
  • How to dimension the wire cross section and select the appropriate crimp parts
  • How to use the topology to design a harness
