E3.cable - Electrical wiring design software

E3.cable is a powerful electrical wiring design software, used for designing and documenting cable plans and wire harness layouts. Extending the functionality of E3.schematic, it enables individual conductors to be combined together in the design to form cables or harnesses. Shielding and twisted-pair structure can also be added to the cables and automatically shown in the schematic. E3.cable is ideally suited for industries developing power and wire harnesses for the automotive, off-highway and special purpose vehicle, and aerospace industries, or those developing field cabling for plant and machinery.

An integrated design solution for interconnecting devices and designing cables and wire harnesses

Intelligent block functionality enabling the representation of dynamic equipment

Hierarchy functionality for flexible top-down or bottom-up design approach

Multiple views of devices for design and documentation purposes

Block functionality

E3.cable supports block functionality for electrical wiring design: blocks can represent components, rack equipment, black boxes, PCBs, and through hierarchy whole systems and sub-systems. Connector pins are dynamically added to the blocks and signal information is displayed alongside.

Views allow alternate documentation of devices such as single-line diagrams, wiring diagrams, and cable plans. For example, connectors can be represented as single pins in the schematic and then as the complete connector in the cable plan. Changes to any of the views, immediately update all other views, ensuring all documentation is synchronized.

E3.cable Key Features

Block diagrams

E3.cable supports block functionality for electrical wiring design: blocks can represent components, rack equipment, black boxes, PCBs, and whole systems and sub-systems. Connector pins are dynamically added to the blocks, and signal information is displayed alongside.

Multi-view functionality

Views allow alternate representations such as single-line diagrams, wiring diagram and cable plans. Connectors can be represented as single pins in the schematic and then as the complete connector in the cable plan. Changes to any of the views, are immediately updated all related views.

Hierarchical design

Hierarchical systems and sub-systems can be represented as blocks. Signals and connections can pass between levels and sub-levels. Hierarchy enables top-down and bottom-up design, promotes design reuse and provides project leaders with a system level overview.

Links to PCB data

Blocks can be integrated with PCB design data. Interface connector and signal information from the PCB system is dynamically added to the blocks in E3.series. Changes to the PCB are re-imported and updated in the block. E3.cable supports most PCB formats and has bi-directional integrations with Zuken’s CR-8000.

Satisfied customers

E3.series will allow us to increase the quality and performance of our harness designs for manufacturing. And because E3.series is aimed at specialists in electrical architecture it supports our overall design process, right up to the generation of production orders.

Christophe VergneaultCEO of Techno MAP

In the same way that our vehicles are highly customizable, so is the functionality within E3.series that allows us to realize this.

Graeme ShieldsDesign Manager at Emergency One

E3.series’ ability to generate top-quality, detailed schematics has been exceptionally beneficial for us. Customers have already noticed the improvements in electrical quality.

Graeme ShieldsDesign Manager at Emergency One

The detailed schematic reduces the time we spend answering customer questions as a result of the quality of documentation, which has allowed us to reduce costs associated with customer support. We also anticipate reduced downtime involved in repairs due to the superior quality of the schematics.
