CADENAS libraries for E3.series

Zuken, CADENAS and ECAD-Port announce component library cooperation

20 November 2018 – Munich, Germany and Westford, MA, USA – Zuken has signed a partnership agreement with CADENAS, a leading provider of online component libraries, and ECAD-Port, a specialized provider for electrical components library services.

The three partners are working together to provide online access to free, validated, high-quality electrical component data to users of Zuken’s E3.series electrical design tools. The agreement will extend the CADENAS offering of intelligent engineering data from more than 700 component manufactures through the addition of electrical content provided directly by OEM component manufacturers. The partnership is expected to rapidly grow the CADENAS library from its current number of 250 electrical, fluid and automation manufacturers.

It will achieve these benefits for electrical designers:

  • Users of Zuken’s E3.series ECAD environment will gain direct access to the CADENAS component portal where they can search for components and load the required parts directly into E3.series. This digital engineering data are enriched with intelligent information such as electronic symbols, connections points and technical product information.
  • ECAD-Port will be available as a service provider to OEMs for content creation and attribute mapping services using both eCl@ss and E3.series formats.
  • ECAD-Port will provide mapping assistance to all E3.series customers who operate an E3.database, offering specific attributes or content such as individual ERP number or customer specific symbols.

Through the collaboration with CADENAS, Zuken is building on its commitment to industry standards.

“We have been supporting the eCl@ss initiative for many years,” says Joachim Frank, Managing Director Zuken E3. “Zuken’s intention was to provide users a reliable source of high quality manufacturer certified component information. Therefore, CADENAS’ data portal was our first choice.”

Jürgen Heimbach, CEO of CADENAS says: “Our cooperation with Zuken opens new opportunities to the electrical engineering community. Through providing intelligent enriched engineering data, electrical engineers no longer need to manually search and add information. This saves valuable time for their product development.”

The initiative has already seen positive response from leading component manufacturers, with endorsements from HARTING, Weidmüller, Phoenix Contact, WAGO and TE Connectivity Technology Group. Comprehensive libraries from further industry leaders are under way.
