Weidmuller Unveils New RailDesigner 2.3 Software for Planning and Ordering Terminal Rails
RICHMOND (September 27, 2004) – When it comes to optimizing planning and ordering terminal rails, Weidmuller’s new and improved RailDesigner 2.3 software has proven itself to be a real time saver.

Known as an innovator in the industry, Weidmuller has expanded on RailDesigner’s already extensive capabilities with several new improvements, including:

• Improved database
• Customized enclosure design capabilities
• Bonus software (M-Print, M-Comm2 and M-Label)
• New HTTP Internet download capability
• On-line ordering/quotation access

True-to-detail display of products and an easy-to-use graphic user interface distinguish the RailDesigner 2.3 from other software packages. Complete product information and search functions enable the user to quickly and easily select products through intelligent database queries and parts libraries. Parts libraries are unique databases that are customized by the user to contain terminals that are commonly used by the user, which can be individually “mounted” on a mounting rail—all with the click of a mouse or the touch of a button.

Cross connections, markings, end plates, partitions, end brackets, open slots, external cable bridges, etc. are also graphically displayed. Automatic numbering functions enable prescribed labels to be quickly generated. The detailed construction of the terminal rail can be presented in the form of CAD drawing format or Bill of Material listing.

RailDesigner 2.3 software is virtually mistake-proof. Any construction questions can be asked, and errors quickly detected, by using the “Installation Tips/Help/Advice” function. A navigation window conveniently displays an overview of all utilized terminal rails, and an export/import interface provides direct access to drawing files, which makes it possible to import dxf. file formats into CAD systems.

Weidmuller can also quickly build the rail assemblies for the customer after receiving the design via e-mail or on a disk. Free to accounts, RailDesigner 2.3 software is easy to learn and comes with a multi-media training tutorial for self-instruction. Updates and service are available via Internet downloads and built-in e-mail assistance links.
