E3.Series for control schematics (E3.Schematic) delivers unrivalled design capabilities whichever standard you are working to (including DIN ANSII JIC IEC) to create European or ladder diagrams. In addition E3.Schematic is integrally linked to E3.Panel for control panel design and wiring.
Projects can encompass one or more standards (and dimensional standard imperial and metric), which are managed dynamically within E3.Series. Using built-in design rule checking, on-line referencing and component and signal management, users are able to design with confidence that documentation remains correct at all times.
With dynamic intelligence, E3.Series manages sheets, parts, cables and assemblies with unrivalled ease of use – This is accomplished by using design intent capture and windows drag a drop technology, a “what you see is always going to be correct” methodology.
Modifications are managed as you would expect, if a part name is changed, it will be reflected throughout the design, immediately, as will changes to signals, cables terminals and connectors. Using the same techniques that apply to other standard windows applications such as cut and paste, and select and drag, E3.Series schematics are as simple to use as applications such as Microsoft Word.
Circuits, part projects and areas of circuitry may be cut and pasted into other projects or placed in a database for re-use on demand. When they are re-used, all associated information such as part numbering and wire naming is managed automatically by E3.Series.
Terminal plans (Terminal documentation) are created and updated dynamically (Including jumper displays) – change the schematic and the terminal documentation updates and vice-versa. E3.Series delivers the ultimate in terms of document output.
All information and documentation created or used within the control schematic may be output for use externally. Numerous enhanced utilities have been developed to further enhance our customer’s application and are available on request including;
- Circuit modification from an Excel spreadsheet
- Project creation from an Excel table
- Automatic generation of graphical external terminal connections
- Import of wiring and parts to assist in circuit build from a external BOM
