Platform strategy

Open to Integration The EPLAN platform technology is capable of integrating engineering tools of other outside disciplines because of the open nature of its API interface. The modular platform provides core functions that are required in electrical CAE as well as in fluid or EMSR engineering. All systems are fed from the same database, since they are set up on a common platform.


Software requirements

Minimum net requirements As stated in the software requirements and performance, only operate the server with a Microsoft Windows operating system. Because of the enhanced technology in the new Microsoft operating systems, this dongle driver no longer supports interface cards. General requirements The Microsoft .NET framework 4.0 is required to operate the EPLAN platform.



The factors for maximum cost cutting are a system's performance and its integrability in the corporate processes including the automatability of design and development steps. Not only the pure advantage of speed for this unbroken communication, also the data integrity and therefore the quality of the results are a crucial competitive advantage. With EPLAN Electric P8 these come as standard.
