Computer-aided tools are increasingly being used for the electrical planning and mechanical design of switch cabinets. Bachmann is providing an ePLAN P8 library for eCAD systems, and for mCAD programs a 3D module library with the components of the M1 automation system. The device data of the Bachmann automation components can be obtained from the ePLAN Data Portal as ePLAN P8 library version V1.02R, supplemented with all the latest products. The common data created with ePLAN and certified data can be loaded directly into the eCAD project and used immediately for the design tasks. The ePLAN library contains device data, macros and technical documentation for all PLC and visualization components. It thus offers support during the entire electrical design engineering phase - from the creation of schematics, to cabinet layouts, overview drawings, PLC configurations right through to spare parts documentation.
