EPLAN announces Web-based Portal
The scope of data contained in the EPLAN Data Portal includes macros of components and sub-circuits, assembly drawings, function templates for intelligent device selection, international designations, preview images and entire manuals. Using the EPLAN Data Portal not only makes searching individual manufacturer catalogs unnecessary, it also eliminates the need to type in part numbers or create ones own macros. The portal allows the users to select components directly from the server with all of the convenient functions of a web application, and insert them into their design environment via simple drag and drop. Thanks to the Internet technology, EPLAN users all over the world can obtain all important device information and updates on a just-in-time basis, while the manufacturers enjoy increased product acceptance by providing quality component information in EPLAN-ready format.
The collection of component data available today represents a significant leap forward in our commitment to lead the industry in the delivery of integrated product data to our customers design environment. The data will be continually updated and expanded to meet the needs of our global customer requirements, and further improve the quality and efficiency of their designs, stated Özlem Falkiewicz, Marketing Manager at EPLAN Software & Services.
The EPLAN Data Portal is available at no additional cost to EPLAN customers with a current annual software maintenance agreement.
