Electrical / Fluid Design
Ein nicht durchgängig formalisierter Entwicklungs- oder Herstellungsprozess führt unweigerlich zu übermäßiger Komplexität. Intelligente Möglichkeiten der Fertigungsunterstützung, die von durchdachten Konstruktionslösungen unterstützt werden, bieten einen wiederholbaren und effizienten Weg zur Vereinfachung der Fertigungsprozesse.
The best and the most exciting part of what’s new in E3.series 2020 is hands-down the sheer breadth of topics. E3.series 2020 is the best release yet!
The E3.series 2020 release is full of exciting new features and improvements. Notably, more than 25 major enhancements covering a wide variety of topics make this the best release yet! The new features in E3.series 2020 cover a wide range of topics.
Discussion of the remote working options available with Zuken’s E3.series. E3.series is an enterprise-grade engineering platform with many collaborative capabilities and solutions.
A modular electrical design comes with its own set of unique challenges. However, the basic principles of the solution are the same. With this in mind, let’s think modular when it comes to a modular design.
Mit unserem Startup Programm haben wir eine Initiative ins Leben gerufen, mit der wir innovative junge Unternehmen gezielt fördern und ihnen beim Wachsen helfen wollen. Im Rahmen dieses Programms unterstützen wir Startups mit Softwarepaketen und Support bei der Produktentwicklung, um Produkte mit hohem Potential erfolgreich auf den Markt zu bringen.
Die wachsende Komplexität moderner Produkte erfordert eine wachsende Zusammenarbeit verschiedener Abteilungen. Der Informationsaustausch zwischen den Disziplinen wird deshalb immer wichtiger. E3.WiringChecks und E3.WiringCockpit vereinfachen die Kommunikation zwischen Konstruktion, Montage und Inbetriebnahme.
The mechanical model often drives the electrical design for placement and wire routing. There are multiple M-CAD tools used to author the 3D designs like Dassault Systemes CATIA/SolidWorks, Siemens NX, Creo, Inventor, etc. An important part of a successful electrical design process is the collaboration between electrical and mechanical design principles. Zuken’s E3.series tools have enabled this collaboration with much success.
The season to be jolly is just around the corner. We are getting ready to open up our favorite gifts and sip hot cocoa around the fireplace. E3.series users had a lot of reasons to be jolly with the 2019 update bringing in a ton of features and updates. The updates in E3.series 2019 cover the breadth of the solution and there is something for almost every aspect of the design suite. The best sentiments to describe the overall release are ‘intuitive’ and ‘efficient’.
The manufacturing industry has made substantial investments in the digitization and automation of processes along the product lifecycle (also known as PLM). But so far, these efforts were mainly focused on mechanical and vehicle engineering, while the planning, documentation and manufacturing preparation of electrotechnical equipment is often carried out in drawing formats.
This video will show step by step instructions on how to create a basic Panel Model and insert a 3D STEP file.
Panels are ubiquitous to any electrical design discussion. In most cases., panels hold together the nerve center of a system and vary widely in complexity. An electrical design solution needs to cater to a simple panel such as we find in our homes that may contain a few fuses and disconnects. That solution should also be able to handle complex panels like the ones used for switchgear, PLCs and the motor control centers that drive the world of automation all around us.
Time is money in the engineering world. Every step in the design process is under increased scrutiny to reduce cycle time while maintaining accuracy while projects grow more complex by the minute. The E3.series software suite offers a number of add-on tools that will increase productivity by facilitating or automating common processes and by offering more intuitive interfaces for design environments.
E3.series software offers a number of add-on tools that will increase productivity while allowing collaboration between all engineering disciplines. Keep in mind that functionality will vary based on your own MCAD and PLM solutions and their versions. Let’s explore the add-on tools in E3.series and see what’s available.
A great product starts with a great idea and often the pillars of its success are closely related to the design and manufacturing teams. The efficiency of the design to manufacturing process directly corresponds to the profitability and therefore a schematic for an electrical design must be accurately documented and annotated. The Drawing Notes Manager add-on for E3.series aims to make documenting notes and annotations an error-free automated process.
This tip explains how to use Panel Autoconnect to define wire lengths in E3.series. After a schematic is defined and units are placed in E3.panel, Panel Autoconnect finds the shortest path for the connections defined in the schematic. If units are moved in panel, the length information is updated across modules, allowing users to optimize the enclosure to minimize wire lengths.
