E3.Series for cabling (E3.Cable) delivers unique cabling, harnessing and interconnect design and documentation capability. Built as a superset of E3.Schematic, E3.Cable allows users to design using schematic and/or “black box” entities. Wiring and system interconnects using dynamically created or pre-defined wires, cables, looms and harnesses is simple and effective.
Designers may work with multiple views (or instances) of connectors and cables ensuring that different documentation views of designs remain valid, no matter where or what modifications are made. Connectors may be used as single elements or as a desired collection of the constituent pins.
Cables, wires and signals are managed project-wide with similar intelligence, as is shielding. Cabling documentation has never been easier with E3.Cable. Detailed information can be used and re-used at will, and outputs such as connector lists, wiring lists and cable list are a simple by-product of the designer’s intent.
From interconnect to vehicle harnessing, site cabling and machinery design, E3.Cable provides an effective solution to meet the most demanding of application – easily. Coupled with powerful harness documentation facilities E3.Cable delivers the ultimate in cable and wire harness design and documentation.
