Desktop Engineering has selected EPLAN Platform 2.4 as its Editor’s Pick
of the Week for September 24, 2014. EPLAN Platform 2.4 integrates the EPLAN
suite of process-oriented engineering solutions for electrical and mechanical
engineering design, documentation, process and project planning from EPLAN Software
Desktop Engineering editor at large Anthony J. Lockwood explains that EPLAN
is intended to help users meet the engineering challenges of the wired world across
electrical engineering, automation, fluid engineering, mechatronics or complex
process, production and control projects.
According to Lockwood, the EPLAN Platform serves to integrate the
applications suite by providing consistent, accurate data throughout product
development and production. While the widely deployed EPLAN Electric P8 finds
application in electrical project planning, documentation and management; EPLAN
Harness proD is used for wire harness design, enclosure layout, preplanning of machines
and plants, and the design and documentation of circuits in fluid power
Lockwood adds that the 2.4 release delivers greater engineering process
efficiency, more so with its availability in a 64-bit version.
