There is already a new version of the EPLAN Platform 2022. And with it, EPLAN, the solution provider, announces the future of design in electrical engineering with a focus on ease of use, for both experienced users of EPLAN software and beginners. The intuitive user interface, based on concepts that are already familiar, is very well received and at the same time improves user comfort.
The EPLAN Platform 2022 is now ready for launch and includes a newly designed user interface, workflow enhancements and many added features related to additional cloud services. In summary, the new design software is characterized by ease of use and high performance. This can be seen on the integrated ribbons as well as on the “backstage view”, where users will find many already implemented software solutions and significantly improved control ergonomics. The new, more intuitive user interface is based on common internationally known control concepts, which makes it easier to start working with the software.
Workflows in the age of digitization
EPLAN’s developers also focused on project workflows and designed software to improve collaboration throughout the product lifecycle. This is because CAE systems, such as the EPLAN Platform, are something of a “backbone” for development and production departments. They are usually very deeply integrated into customers’ infrastructure and strategy, and in terms of investment, their development is planned years in advance. One of the company’s clear goals in developing the new version of EPLAN Platform 2022 was to optimize the exchange of data between the various stakeholders in all sectors of the company. Cloud applications such as EPLAN eBuild, eManage (now also available in full) and eView provide further impetus for completely new forms of collaboration in the context of the EPLAN platform. The added value of new cloud software solutions allows you to significantly improve collaboration between companies and their customers, business partners and suppliers.
Vyzkoušená a osvědčená platforma
Electrical designer Markus Sommer from J. Wagner GmbH, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of innovative technology for surface treatment of materials, was convinced by the new user interface. The unified user interface in the new version of EPLAN Platform 2022, based on established concepts known from today’s world of work, really makes it easier to get started quickly with software, especially for newcomers. EPLAN offers a myriad of functions, but these are well-structured and clearly arranged, and the use of pop-up cards increases work comfort.
Sometimes the added value is in the details, says EPLAN system administrator Michael Noack of KSV, a switchgear manufacturer based in Koblenz, Germany. One of his duties is to take care of the master data. He became acquainted with the EPLAN 2022 platform in great detail during the testing of its beta version. For him, the new device management functions are a clear step forward: it is now possible to save all device properties depending on their variants. Technical features can now be achieved with greater variability and accuracy in the new EPLAN 2022 Platform. For example, when designing a circuit, it is now possible to correctly map the auxiliary contact blocks of contactors, the circuit of which changes its physical location depending on the design of the switchboard. This makes the wiring diagram even more accurate, and in addition to simplifying the construction work, this also facilitates the later connection of the internal connections in the switchgear.
Switch to the subscription model
EPLAN Platform 2022 is sold exclusively by subscription. This reduces financial risk for companies because they do not need large initial investments and the possibilities of planning individual use of the software are much more flexible. By subscribing, EPLAN also strengthens its partnership with customers in order to better respond to their current needs in their daily work.
The EPLAN platform is more intuitive and flexible, and overall brings better productivity to companies. Companies using companion programs and solutions, such as the EPLAN Partner Program, and complementary software products in the EPLAN cloud, can now work better with customers, partners and suppliers.
