DC Functional Analysis and Circuit Checks

E3.eCheck - detect fuse and wire sizing errors

E3.eCheck is an extension to E3.series that enables users to functionally analyze their electrical schematic circuits and check designs for fuse and wire sizing errors. The utility works in real-time and provides instant feedback on the operability of the circuit design.

Ideally suited for engineers and designers working with DC control systems

For automotive, aerospace, railway, and special purpose vehicle applications

Satisfied customers

Der Umstieg auf E3.formboard - und der Einsatz von E3.Routing Bridge und E3.eCheck - ermöglicht es uns, als Ingenieure produktiver und als Baumaschinenhersteller wettbewerbsfähiger zu sein.

Es kann immer mal vorkommen, dass man einen Draht versehentlich löscht oder ihn von einem Steckverbinder trennt und vergisst, ihn wieder anzuschließen. In der Vergangenheit waren wir darauf angewiesen, gegenseitig die Arbeit zu überprüfen - ein mühsamer Prozess mit vielen Ausdrucken und Textmarkerstiften. Durch die Simulation des Designs mit E3.eCheck bleiben wir von all dem verschont. Außerdem entspricht die Stückliste immer dem aktuellen Design.

DC Functional Analysis and Circuit Checks

Functionally-intelligent objects

In order to facilitate the functional checks special objects exist in the E3.series library, including power sources, fuses, switches, complex devices and loads. Power supplies allow the user to stimulate the circuit while fuses monitor the inline current. Switches can be activated allowing current to pass between their contacts, and complex devices such as relays are configured to open or close auxiliary contacts based on the coil operation.

Tolerance checks

During the analysis and design phase the current value and direction is constantly monitored at pin level. Voltage drop is monitored at each pin to determine the effectivity of the circuit. Inline fuses will fail should their tolerance be exceeded. This allows users to correct designs during the prototype or development phase – long before products enter the manufacturing stage.

Circuit analysis

Switches and contacts within the design are controlled by the voltage and current passing through the circuit. Energizing a coil will open and close auxiliary contacts, which in turn enables or disables current flow in other sections of the design simulating the real-life operation of the circuit. As current passes through to the load, objects such as lamps or motors voltage are checked and success or failure information is fed back to the user.

Design for manufacture

E3.eCheck complements the comprehensive capabilities of E3.series. With its electrically-aware component library, specifically-designed kernel and numerous design rule checks, it is optimized for electrical design. Connector mates, connector pin terminals and cavity seals are automatically assigned and short-circuits and incorrect part usage is prevented, ensuring that  correct design data is always available for manufacturing.
