Eldon product libraries for EPLAN

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

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

The Eldon library for EPLAN now includes:

  • 3D macros for those that work with the Pro Panel add-on;
  • 2D macros for those working with EPLAN P8 version 2.6 or higher;
  • A complete Parts Management database with technical information, data sheets, and listings of relevant accessories for each enclosure.

New 3D Eldon macros for EPLAN Pro Panel

EPLAN Pro Panel is a 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 macros from Eldon for EPLAN Pro Panel include many useful features providing numerous guaranteed benefits. Here are some examples:

  • Enclosure macros come in two variants featuring left and right hinged doors. This saves time since the macros do not need to be reworked if the default door positioning is changed;

  • More detailed enclosure macros, including gaskets and studs, for example, making it easier to define component distribution;
  • Enclosure macros include drilling restrictions (restrictions are defined to avoid incompatible machine operations that could potentially cause damage to the product or modification machines);

  • Accessory macros include a drilling template (accessories that require machining on the enclosure include a machine template to reduce time and avoid mistakes. One example is when preparing mounting of filter fans);
  • Accessories are linked to the relevant enclosures. All accessories with a single location snap on to the enclosure automatically. Those with several locations are inserted using a smart grid, which could be placed on the hole pattern of a floor standing frame, for example.

 

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

As for EPLAN Pro Panel, the upgraded macros for EPLAN P8 include many useful features providing concrete benefits. Here are some examples:

  • Enclosure macros include variants for each view, where each enclosure available in 2D is structured in several variants including front, mounting plate, top and bottom, right and left;


  • More detailed enclosure macros, including gaskets and studs, for example, making it easier to define component distribution;


  • Cooling unit macros with new features, including an electrical diagram and assembly cut-out template.

 

Parts Management database

Parts Management includes all relevant reliable data such as article and EAN reference, certifications, data sheets, dimensions and weights, mounting space and more. Accessories are included in Parts Management and are linked to the relevant enclosure.
