Efficiently create detailed electrical schematics

The intelligent database-driven approach to design provides a consistent and up-to-date electrical schematic. The core built-in design rules check engine prevents errors, improves productivity, and improves accuracy for manufacturing. Automating common tasks reduces the time required to create a complete schematic. Intelligent connection options, online terminal plans, comprehensive reporting options, and support for industry standards empower all types of design teams.

Design and documentation of electrical schematics

E3.schematic is core to all E3.series modules and provides electrical engineers with an easy-to-use solution for designing and documenting electrical control systems including schematic diagrams, terminal plans and PLC’s. Its object-oriented architecture provides an integrated and consistent design approach to help eliminate errors, improve quality and reduce design time.

Automatic connection and routing functionality

Active error avoidance with logic and electric checks

Online functionality for terminal plans, PLC and signal cross-references

Hierarchical modular projects including options and variants

Design smarter with smart libraries

A quick drag and drop from the intelligent library adds parts into an E3.series project. A comprehensive library of ANSI, I.E.C.,  and JIS symbols provides a variety of design options. Automated naming and connection options improve quality. Components, symbols, and attributes are easily customized and reused to improve consistency across projects and teams. All the data is up-to-date and synchronized across the project

Easily manage wires, hoses and tubes

Wires, hoses, and tubes are readily available to be intelligently applied to all connections. The inbuilt D.R.C.s check wire limitation for pins in the library. E3.series automatically maintains wire and cable naming to eliminate duplication. Signals and references are updated automatically to reduce errors. Reports detailing connections, connector inserts, and lengths are generated with a click.

Automate design and documentation

The built-in reporting options drastically reduce the time from design to documentation in E3.series. Quickly manage terminals, cables, and devices in dedicated, up-to-date tools. Automate time-consuming tasks like unique wire numbering, device tagging, cross-referencing, and off-page connections. Power through customized reports using report generation utilities and an open API.

Easily save and reuse designs

It is easy to save and reuse partial or complete circuits in E3.series. Drag & drop the circuits to the drawing, and the automatic naming, numbering, and D.R.C.s maintain quality. The connections and signals are easily manipulated to merge into the design intelligently.

Simplify configuration management

E3.series offers powerful options and variant management to create and manage design configurations. Easily manage 150% of designs by quickly activating or deactivating the desired circuits. Visual options enable hiding the circuits completely or showing them greyed out for greater clarity. Additionally, Underlying components and circuits are managed without changing the logical connection using variant management. Now, changing a standard motor to add a faster motor needs only a single click. Additionally, the entire project, including drawings and documentation, are all updated and in sync.

E3.series’ ECAD engine, designed by electrical engineers for electrical engineers, includes built-in real-time design rule checks that prevent errors rather than finding them later and its intelligent component-based parts library ensures only real parts are used and helps drive the design with automatic part selections.

E3.schematic manages all design data including affiliated documents, such as a bill of materials and connection lists or assembly instructions and datasheets. Its object-oriented data structure ensures manufacturing instructions always match the design data.

E3.RevisionManagement

E3.Revision Management ensures all changes are tracked and documented. Alternate revisions of a design are compared against each other and any changes are reported and stored in both graphical and textual formats. The resulting documentation can be fed back into the production process ensuring all changes are implemented.
