Combined electrical and fluid design with intelligent sheet formats for easy navigation between electrical and fluid elements
Hydraulics & Pneumatics Design
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. It can be used to develop standalone fluid schematics or combined with the electrical schematics to provide a mixed fluid and electrical design.
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 layouts.
Our solution approach enables fluid engineers to detail and document their hydraulic and pneumatic designs. Either to be developed independently or fully integrated with electrical control systems.
E3.fluid Key Features
Standalone hydraulic and pneumatic design
Our design software 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 layouts
- Intelligent sheets prevent design errors (only fluid layouts 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 hydraulic and pneumatic design documentation is always correct, irrespective of where modification is carried out.

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.
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.
E3.series 2020 delivers significant enhancements for tabular editing, document embedding, and 3D PDF support
E3.series is much more than a single tool for us. Everything we do relies on us having accurate, live data – and that’s what E3.series feeds into virtually all of our processes
Martin PricePurchasing and IT Director, BCA Leisure
With such a compressed timeframe for the ACCEL aerospace initiative, speed is everything. E3.series was selected because of its ease-of-use, flexibility, and output capability for all data needed to manufacture wiring harnesses, including bills of materials.
Stjohn YoungmanElectroflight’s Programme Manager, Electroflight
We chose E3.series because it was best able to meet our design requirements. As our needs have evolved, so has E3.series. With each new version, Zuken gives us the functionality we need for higher productivity and quality
Sami KiviojaEngineering Manager, ABB Process Automation
We wanted a flexible, highly integrated electrical design solution which would help us improve our existing system and establish new design processes, ranging from the capture of a vehicle’s functional electrical topology, through detailed design, to the creation of harness manufacture data.
