Configuring with EPLAN

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:

  • Creating circuit diagrams for control cabinets
  • Managing article master data
  • Automatic generation of bills of materials, terminal plans, PLC diagrams and overviews
  • Preparation of the documentation for the configured system
  • Design of the mechanical control cabinet configuration
EPLAN macros for SINAMICS components

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:

  • SINAMICS G120P, PM330 Power Modules
  • SINAMICS G130 built-in units
  • SINAMICS S120 chassis units
  • SINAMICS DCM DC converters
  • Line and motor-side components
  • DC link components
  • Control Units
  • Supplementary system 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.

EPLAN user interface

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:

  • Internal circuit diagrams
  • Wiring diagrams
  • Product master data
  • Product images
  • Data sheets

EPLAN Electric P8 macros for SINAMICS components are available in the following tools:

EPLAN projects fo SINAMICS converter cabinet units

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:

  • SINAMICS G120P Cabinet
  • SINAMICS S120 Cabinet Modules
  • SINAMICS DCM Cabinet

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.
