Cutting wiring time by up to 70%

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

EPLAN's Pro Panel engineering software is said to enable companies to achieve savings of up to 70% on wiring time, 50% time savings on layout and mounting and up to 50% increase in overall productivity.

With Pro Panel, engineers can design and construct three-dimensional control cabinets and switchgear systems without expensive errors and rework. The software features include 3D mounting layout, wiring and design, modification and adjustment of copper busbars.

The software lets the user choose their preferred approach whether it is based on equipment lists, connection lists, or circuit diagrams. The virtual 3D model of the control cabinet switchgear system helps designers make use of the control panel space available. Integrated planning aids such a collision testing, adherence to manufacturer installation guidelines, minimum clearances and bending radii, allow optimum positioning and installation.

The system is claimed to work out the optimum conductor and cable routing and all the resulting connection lengths at the touch of a button. The result of the optimised wiring can then be used to optimise the schematic.
