Automated, Consistent and Accurate Design

Zuken’s E3.series is an essential design tool for electrical engineers to create quality products in the shortest time frame possible. Every design aspect is optimized with automation options to create unmatched consistency, quality, accuracy and speed. The built-in design rule checks eliminate common design errors. The configuration and design reuse options assist teams in reducing rework and standardizing the design process.

The automated reporting and documentation options seamlessly connect teams and departments. Multi-user access to the same projects allows multiple engineers to all work simultaneously on the same design. Changes made by individuals are immediately seen by all other users while still maintaining integrity rules, such as unique device naming.

Automating engineering processes

Automating engineering processes

Automatically syncing and updating information across the project are vital features of the object-oriented design of the E3.series platform. The automation capabilities simplify many traditional drafting processes.

The application eliminates tracking and tagging wires, cables, signals, connections and devices manually. The built-in rules intelligently drive the selection of mating connectors, connector pin terminals, cavity seals, plugs, and even wires.

 

Cabling and Wiring Cabinet Layout

Automating engineering standards

Automatically applying standards creates a robust design process across teams and projects. The intelligent object-oriented library forms the heart of the solution in E3.series. The library and project templates capture standards and enable design teams to extract consistent results.

The online parts portal, standard manufacturer parts databases and custom part creation options empower design teams to follow an agile design process. Additional parts and signals added to components ensure quality of design and ‘right first time philosophy.

Electrical engineering design rule checks

Design Rule Checks

In ever increasing requirement of reduced time from design to manufacture, the right-first-time design requirement is constantly increasing. The mix of active and passive checks in E3.series ensures users avoid mistakes during the design and flag in the release process.

For instance, the application stops users from using the wrong wire size, mounting a device colliding with another, or using incompatible mating connectors. The user-defined DRC options expand the built-in checks to match customer requirements.

 

Logical Schematics Cabling and Wiring

Functional Analysis and Circuit Checks

The electrically aware component library, specifically designed kernel and numerous design rule checks are all optimized for electrical design. Preventing short-circuits and incorrect part usage ensures the correct design data is always available for manufacturing.

Special objects such as power sources, fuses, switches, complex devices and loads in the E3.series library facilitate functional checks. Power supplies allow the user to simulate the circuit while fuses monitor the inline current.

Intelligent Purchasing and Costing

Intelligent Purchasing and Costing

The robust and intelligent connection to business systems provides engineers easy access to enterprise data. The library is tuned to capture auto-select additional parts, tools and miscellaneous items related to an electrical component.

The reporting capabilities enable design-based estimates and provide accurate project data to purchasing systems without manual rework. Working with configuration management and 150% B.O.M. projects is easy with the link to reporting to ensure accuracy of the bills of materials for a given configuration.

 

Report Generator Harness Builder

Ultraprecise engineering and manufacturing reports

E3.series provides advanced built-in configurable reporting options to extract the data for upstream and downstream processes easily. The design data drives the reports to ensure accuracy and avoid manual entry errors.

E3.series enables users to quickly generate standard reports like bills of materials, wire lists, cable schedules, terminal plans, plc addressing, device tags, wire labels and many more. Export reports in multiple standard formats to enable digital data flow across the product development process.
