EPLAN is an engineering software for configuring electrical installations. The EPLAN platform combines expert systems for various disciplines, such as electrical, fluid and EMC engineering, as well as control cabinet and plant engineering. It provides the wiring information required to determine the optimal laying routes, connection lengths, bundle diameters, and design of the cable tree.
EPLAN Electric P8 – an EPLAN module – is CAE software specifically for configuring documentation and managing electrical automation projects for machines and systems. EPLAN Electric P8 offers the following functions:
EPLAN Electric P8 macros are available as downloads without charge, so that SINAMICS components can be easily and cost-effectively integrated into an EPLAN project. Macros are available for the following components:
Using EPLAN Electric P8 macros substantially shortens the configuration time. All the necessary information about a component is supplied at the press of a button. This ensures that the data is up-to-date and correct – and mistakes/errors can be avoided.

The macros are provided in the file format EDZ (EPLAN Data Archived Zipped). An EDZ file is an archive for article master data, CAx data and macros. A macro in EDZ format contains the following data:
EPLAN Electric P8 macros for SINAMICS components are available in the following tools:
EPLAN projects are available for SINAMICS converter cabinet units, that simplify the configuration, and save time throughout the entire engineering process. EPLAN projects are available for the following converter cabinet units:
The complete EPLAN project is supplied on a separate DVD-ROM together with the converter. The order is made by stating an additional article no. or a cabinet option.
EPLAN project: Control cabinet layout
EPLAN project: DRIVE-CLiQ topology
EPLAN project: Circuit diagram
The following data are available when you purchase the DVD-ROM:
The EPLAN project includes the following documentation components:
