1. Calculation and Comparison of Block Properties
The block properties function enables users to link simple objects, such as motors or circuit breakers, within a circuit diagram. The upcoming Platform 2024 will include a calculation feature that allows for the calculation of different block properties and their comparison. This feature will aid in the determination of protection devices and cable sizes based on defined loads.
2. Automated Connection of Spare Wires in Machine Wiring
In the current EPLAN platform, machine cabling includes the connection of sensors and actuators in control cabinets. The 2024 version will introduce the automatic connection of spare cores to spare terminals via the cable editor. EPLAN Harness proD will also support the determination of cable lengths for planned machines. The new calculation function for block properties will enable the calculation of voltage drop, among other things.
3. Optimized Terminal Editor for Easy Management and Testing
The optimized terminal editor will allow for the easy management of terminals, terminal strips and accessories. Users can easily check terminal strips and view terminal connections directly in the circuit diagram.
4. Easy Navigation in the 3D Model of the Control Cabinet with EPLAN Pro Panel
The 2024 version of EPLAN Pro Panel will feature a new navigation cube that enables easy navigation through the 3D model of the planned control cabinet. Additionally, users can automatically remove gaps on the DIN rail during construction with the help of the software.
