The E3.series electrical design suite has three main feature packages with additional packages to unlock targeted capabilities.

  • Schematic is the base module providing intelligent, logical schematic creation and wiring options.
  • Cable included all the features of E3.schematic and provides tools to streamline cabling systems design with multiple views and manufacturing details
  • Panel helps drive electrical panel or cabinet design in 2D and 3D. The application included all the features of E3schematic.
  • Other targeted modules and add-on tools simplify multiple facets of the electrical design process.

Harness Builder for E3.series is an integrated module purpose-built to support the custom cable and wire harness market. Harness Builder for E3.series enables harness manufacturers to accelerate the quote-design-manufacture process.

Yes, E3.series provides multiple parts library options. In addition to the default in-built libraries, there is also a cloud component repository to quickly access vendor libraries. The E3.series libraries contain rich details to enable manufacturing automation and design rule checks.

Yes, E3.series connect with all leading MCAD application with its E3.3DRoutingBridge module. The E3.3DTransformer application enables the seamless transformation of 3D harness data to actionable electrical harness data for harness designers.

The intelligent library and manufacturing details captured in the design process help E3.series drive various automated assembly and manufacturing solutions. For instance, detailed wiring outputs can power advanced wire processing machines like the Komax Zeta series. Another example is cabinet design cut-outs driving automated milling and cutting machines. Explore the technology partner page for more examples.

Multiple viewer options are available for different use cases that simplify consuming the rich details captured in E3.series design projects. The free E3.viewer application opens native files. Whereas the licenses E3.viewer plus application enables custom API access and report generation from the viewer plus module.

E3.series provides both options; a single-user access model for smaller projects and an enterprise multi-user access model for team collaboration. Using E3.enterprise, multiple engineers can simultaneously work on the same design with live data syncing to ensure consistency.

The E3.eCheck module helps designers analyze their electrical schematic circuit and check designs for fuse and wire sizing errors. The utility works in real-time and provides instant feedback on the operability of the circuit design. It is ideally suited for engineers working with DC control systems.

The complimentary custom report and documentation generation module E3.ReportGenerator provides advanced report creation and template creation options. In addition, the free and open API enables custom report generation along with comprehensive automation potential.

E3.series supports various versions of DWG and DXF files with configurable import and export options to enable a flexible design process.

E3.series provides a range of data management options to suit various workflows. The most impactful work-in-progress data management option is Zuken’s DS-E3 solution. DS-E3 is explicitly built for electrical design and manufacturing teams to manage the design data easily. It also excels at managing tasks and workflows, enabling intelligent design reuse, and connecting to enterprise-level PDM and PLM systems.

Cloud Vault for E3.series is a simple and highly automated solution to manage, control, and securely store E3.series projects. It is dedicated to small to medium-sized teams using the single-user access model of E3.series.
