Discover the next generation of EPLAN software - Here are just a few of the cutting edge capabilities you'll find in the new EPLAN Electric P8 v2.0.
EPLAN Pro Panel Add-on Module
With the EPLAN Pro Panel module users can now quickly and easily create drawings and production documentation of panel layouts with associated 3D views. Fully integrated into the EPLAN Platform, it offers greater control and flexibility to make optimum use of the available mounting space. The result is substantial quality, cost and efficiency gains in collaborative product development process
Net Based Wiring Add Module
The Net Based Wiring Module allows users to create schematics without having to pay special attention to the order in which the components are connected. They can simply add this information into the schematics later when the spatial arrangement of the components and their optimal wire routing is finalized
