E3.fluid - Hydraulic, Pneumatic, Cooling and Lubrication System Design
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.
Consistent representations of electromechanical devices in pneumatic schematics, electrical schematics and installation diagrams
Design rule checking with optimized functionality for the development of hydraulic, pneumatic, cooling and lubrication systems
Hydraulic, pneumatic, cooling and lubrication systems activated by electric motors or pumps require integrated handling of fluid and electrical designs. Our solution approach enables fluid engineers to detail and document their hydraulic, pneumatic, cooling and lubrication schematic designs. to be developed independently or fully integrated with electrical control systems.
E3.fluid functionality overview
E3.fluid can be used to develop standalone fluid schematics or combined with the electrical schematics to provide a mixed fluid and electrical design.
Standalone fluid design
E3.fluid can be used to develop standalone fluid schematics or combined with the electrical schematics.
Mixed fluid and electrical designs
- Cross-reference between electrical and fluid design
- Intelligent sheets prevent design errors (only fluid designs allowed on fluid sheets)
- Combined bills of materials
Intelligent parts library
- Part usage tracking
- Extensive symbol library included
- Automatic connections (Auto-connect)
- Multiple design rule checks
- Design reuse with predefined sub-circuits
- Automatic assignment of quick connectors to hoses and tubes
- Prevent incorrect hose and tube sizing
E3.fluid+ allows users to create multiple views of their equipment such as a valve shown in both the schematic and manifold drawing. Making use of E3.series’ object oriented functionality E3.fluid ensures all documentation is always correct, irrespective of where modification are carried out.
We evaluated two leading CAD vendors of which Zuken was the clear winner, because its E3.Series software also supports the development of hydraulics, which our aircraft has for the cooling of the battery and key powertrain components.

Today, we have all mechanical, hydraulic and electrical assemblies available in one information source. This puts us in a position to build a number of robust downstream processes on them.
