Consistency of all design phases through object orientation
E3.series - Hydraulics & Pneumatics Design
Zuken E3.fluid is the solution for designing and documenting all fluid systems. It is a complete, easy-to-use solution with core functionality optimized for the development of hydraulic, pneumatic, cooling, and lubrication systems. It can be used to develop standalone fluid schematics or combined with electrical schematics to provide a mixed fluid and electrical design.
What E3.series can do for you
Powerful automated operations and electrical checks
Comprehensive outputs for manufacturing and documentation
Native format library and design data management
E3.series Features & Solutions
More than a CAD Tool
E3.schematic is the core module of the E3.series suite that enables the creation of schematic diagrams for electrical and fluid control systems.
E3.component cloud compliments the E3.schematic database. Libraries are provided directly by the manufacturers of the respective electronic components.
Components and symbols can be created for all additional components like quick connectors to hoses and tubes.

Development of standalone fluid schematics or combined with electrical schematics to provide a mixed fluid and electrical design is available.
E3.Revision Management ensures all changes are tracked and documented. Alternative revisions of designs are compared and checked against each other, and any changes are reported and stored in both graphical and textual formats.
Specialist fire rescue and emergency vehicle manufacturer, Emergency One UK Ltd, uses E3.series software for its electrical harness design. This has enabled the company to produce wire harnesses to standardize the design and manufacturing process reaping, cost savings and reliability benefits, while also delivering flexibility through modular based customization.
KRONE, a major brand in the agricultural machinery market, implemented an interdisciplinary product development process. Using Zuken’s E3.series, KRONE linked ECAD, MCAD and ERP to develop an integrated digital engineering and sourcing process, achieving sizable benefits for both sourcing and service. With an integral representation of mechanical and electrical product information, KRONE was able to make solid progress in implementing its major business optimization strategies: Industry 4.0 and Farming 4.0.
As part of the Accelerating the Electrification of Flight (ACCEL) research initiative, Electroflight is aiming to set a new world speed record of more than 300mph for an all-electric aircraft, involving the creation of one of the most power dense flying battery packs in the world.
Engineers working on new designs or updating current systems rely on correct, reusable data and information. An intelligent component-based parts library that ensures only real-updated parts are available to help drive the design.
Intelligent sheets help prevent design errors (only fluid layouts are allowed on sheets for hydraulic systems).
E3.fluid can be used to develop standalone fluid schematics in combination with electrical schematics, reducing the risk of errors in today’s right-first-time design culture.
Design engineers designing hydraulic, pneumatic, cooling, and lubrication systems activated by electric motors or pumps require integrated handling of fluid and electrical designs.
Engineers constantly require to detail and document their hydraulic, pneumatic, cooling, and lubrication schematic designs.
Designs can be developed independently or fully integrated with electrical control systems.
You can take advantage of design rule-checking with optimized functionality for hydraulic, pneumatic, cooling, and lubrication systems. This prevents incorrect hose and tube sizing, helping to maintain the right-first-time philosophy.
Bills Of Materials
The requirement of automated B.O.M to help with precise parts data is a must.
Using a library, a single source project with logical and physical connectivity allows engineering teams to automatically produce a complete bill of materials.
Zuken’s E3.series is a leading single-platform solution to take a design from concept to manufacturing. It is a reimagined wire harness, control cabinet, switchgear, and cabling systems design solution.
E3.series encompasses all aspects of electrical design like functional design, detailed schematic, wiring diagram, cabinet layout, formboard, reports, and manufacturing documentation.
