Wire Harness Design and Manufacturing

The increasing complexity and demand for wire harnesses are changing the competitive landscape. The traditional manual, labor-intensive wire harness design and manufacturing processes are largely obsolete. An efficient wire harness design for the manufacturing process needs a solid ecosystem of intelligent systems collaborating to produce the best results in the least time at the lowest price.

The E3.series wire harness ecosystem empowers wire harness engineers to take advantage of innovative automated test, assembly, and manufacturing solutions to stay ahead of the competition.

Control Panel Design and Manufacturing

Electrical panels are the nerve center of complex control systems like switchgear, PLCs, motor control centers, and power distribution systems. Implementing design-for-manufacturing principles significantly improves a panel’s form, fit, and function. It also creates the opportunity to utilize the smart cabinet-building processes, streamlining everything from engineering to service.

E3.series simultaneously represents a panel in both 2D and 3D, eliminating the need to learn complex 3D mechanical tools. The manufacturing data captured in the project powers automated manufacturing, wiring, and assembly solutions from leading industry partners.

Intelligent Electrical Schematics and Wiring Diagrams

E3.schematic provides electrical engineers with an easy-to-use solution for designing and documenting electrical systems, including schematic and wiring diagrams. The module helps by automating common tasks to reduce design time in areas such as intelligent connections, part sections, and reporting. Its object-oriented architecture provides an integrated and consistent design approach to help eliminate errors, improve quality, and reduce design time.

E3.schematic uses an intelligent component-based parts library and built-in design rule checks to save valuable time and prevent user errors. The module manages all design data, such as a bill of materials, connection lists, assembly instructions, terminal plans, and datasheets. Additional features of E3.schematic include the ability to design a hierarchical system design, handle product design variation, cross-reference, and support industry standards.
