The need for integrated fluid and electrical design

Hydraulic, pneumatic, cooling and lubrication systems activated by electric motors or pumps require integrated handling of fluid and electrical designs. To ensure consistency, representations in both domains need to be interlinked.

Mecalac Vehicle Harness - fluid system design

We can help you with

Combined electrical and fluid design

With intelligent sheet formats offering easy navigation between electrical and fluid elements. BOMs show only a single instance of combined electrical and fluid elements (e.g. a valve).

Device ID assignment

Consistent, synchronized representations of electromechanical devices in pneumatic schematics, electrical schematics and installation diagrams through database controlled cross-references.

Design rule checking

Design rule checking with optimized functionality for the development of hydraulic, pneumatic, cooling and lubrication systems.

Our satisfied customers

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.

David AlexanderGroup Engineering Systems Manager, Alexander Dennis

Since we’ve been using E3.series, our technicians find it much easier to work with the schematic output from E3.series which provides more detailed documentation. E3.series is exceptionally stable and has an open access API. This has allowed us to customize the solution to suit our design process
