Design Efficiency: Round Trip Engineering with EPLAN and Rockwell Automation

996 views

Published on

Leveraging the power of EPLAN, the Rockwell Automation RSLogix™ design and programming tools provide seamless data exchange and round trip engineering. Learn how to reduce design time and efforts through bi-directional synchronization of control hardware and tag data between EPLAN and Rockwell Automation RSLogix tools, and also import components from the Rockwell Automation library, automatically generate schematics, export documentation and even customize for specific company requirements.

  2. 2. EPLAN Electric P8 to RSLogix Bi-directional Integration
  3. 3. The Market Trend  Growing pressure to reduce:  Time to market  Time to engineer  Technical Risk  At the same time , the need to reduce machine cost, mechanical design time and increase machine flexibility, is driving for more and more adoption of mechatronic concepts during design.  There’s more software in the machines, but that does not necessarily mean less mechanical and electrical complexity. 3
  4. 4. Global Standard in Electrical Engineering EPLAN Electric P8 Your e-effect – your benefits EPLAN Software & Service GmbH & Co. KG 4 » EPLAN Electric P8: the new dimension in electrical engineering! Feature Function Benefits Database Driven Exchange of drawings with other EPLAN users will ensure that same database that is originally used to create the drawings is used as same database is sent along with the drawings Consistency with High Quality Time Savings Cable connection diagrams Cable connection diagrams are created Automatically. Time Savings PLC Interface True PLC interface RSLogix,. Manage PLC cards, I/O, and bus systems. Seamless communication to many industry standard development products. Time Savings and Consistency Reports Automatic reports, EPLAN supports custom report formats. Accurate Communication Time Savings Data Portal Part & Symbol Macros Access Manufacturers parts database from over 56 manufacturers with over 350,000 components available online via the data portal that is updated constantly, new manufacturers are being added. Consistency with High Quality Time Savings Exporting Documentation Export an intelligent PDF including PDF plotting- Drawings can be plotted as PDF logical navigational links are available. Accurate Communication Time Savings
  5. 5. Synergies EPLAN Data Portal  EPLAN article library of over 30,000 Rockwell Automation master data sets and macros IEC/NFPA  Fulfills requirement of common interface of parts import  Parts data set includes - Part number - Function definition - Schematic macro - PDFs and Images, - Norm sheets  Free service for all customers under software maintenance contract
