Eldon product libraries for EPLAN

Eldon’s ambition is to support customers in all relevant dimensions. Another example of this desire is the new Eldon data provided for EPLAN.

Eldon’s ambition is to support customers in all relevant dimensions. Another example of this desire is the new Eldon data provided for EPLAN.

Eldon’s EPLAN offering has been significantly upgraded to help you reduce engineering time for better project productivity and high-quality end results.

The new Eldon libraries include 3D EPLAN Pro Panel, and for 2D EPLAN Electric P8.

New 3D Eldon data for EPLAN Pro Panel

EPLAN Pro Panel is the software-based engineering solution for designing control cabinets in 3D. The software provides many features for more efficient panel building:

  • Optimum layout presented in 3D;
  • Coupling of NC processing machines;
  • Virtual wiring of components allowing for more efficient real wiring.

The data from Eldon for EPLAN Pro Panel includes many useful features providing numerous guaranteed benefits. Here are some examples:

  • Left and right hinged variants are available by default, which reduces engineering time. This saves 30 minutes of your time.
  • More detailed enclosure macros, including gaskets and studs, for example, making it easier to define component distribution.
  • Enclosure macros include drilling restrictions, which provide machining incompatibilities during the design phase. This avoids problems that may occur during the machining phase.

  • Accessory macros include a drilling template, meaning that the required machining is defined and automatically included in the enclosure drawings for machining, which reduces engineering time.
  • Accessories are linked to the relevant enclosures and include snap points. If the accessory can be mounted in one position it will be positioned automatically on a default snap point. If the accessory can be mounted in different positions, it can only be positioned on the predefined snap points. This makes the engineering easier and reduces the risk of errors.

Upgraded 2D Eldon data for EPLAN P8 version 2.6 or higher

Just as for EPLAN Pro Panel, the upgraded data for EPLAN P8 includes many useful features providing concrete benefits. Here are some examples:

  • Enclosure macros include variants for each view: Front side, left, right, rear, top, bottom, gland plates, plus the mounting plate.


  • Additional details in enclosure macros now include gasket and studs.


  • New features for cooling units include an electrical diagram and assembly cut-out template.
