December 3, 2014 - Eplan Engineering Center is now Eplan Engineering Configuration as of  Version 2.4 demonstrating that configuration is a core function of Eplan´s mechatronic engineering solutions.

Mechatronic configuration is one of the core topics within the spectrum of services of Eplan Engineering Center. Eplan has been offering integrated mechatronic configuration solutions through EEC that can be used to configure components, machines and even complex installation projects. The decision to rename the EEC product was driven by the benefits it offers customers:

  • Eplan represents efficient engineering - standardization and modularization via configuration are a decisive step in this direction.
  • The consistency of the configuration across all engineering disciplines, including mechanics, electrics and software, makes forward-looking mechatronic configuration possible.

Along with the name change, the EEC version number will be synchronized with that of the Eplan Platform. The coming release will premiere at SPS IPC Drives and be released as Version 2.4. Users who want to use EEC to generate schematics and 3D assembly layouts through the platform systems will benefit from the uniform versions. Assignment to the platform´s systems - specifically Eplan Electric P8 and Eplan Pro Panel - has been simplified accordingly. The new version of the configuration solution naturally builds on proven technology. User benefits include the ability to continue using models from previous versions of EEC. Also being launched with EEC Version 2.4 is a series of new functionalities that will save companies time: along with consistently optimized SAP integration, the new version of EEC also has a standard job server that allows customer-specific IT workflows around EEC to be efficiently integrated into existing IT landscapes. And EEC One - the introductory system for standardization and automation based on Excel technology - is also being renamed as part of this harmonization process. But automation in engineering is still paramount. One of the highlights of the new version is a direct coupling with Eplan Pro Panel, the 3D system for enclosure engineering. EPLAN Software & Service develops engineering solutions, which accelerate the product development process. Interdisciplinary expert systems assure the highest degree of productivity and data integration. The solution provider develops customer-specific and tailor-made PDM and PLM concepts and provides comprehensive services such as customizing, consulting and training. Innovative development competence, a consistently practical approach, and international presence are the resulting success factors. EPLAN is part of Rittal International and thus of the Friedhelm Loh Group with 11,500 employees worldwide and generated revenues of about 3 billion USD in 2011. EPLAN is therefore synonymous with continuity and investment security. Eight offices in North America and company presence in 50 countries support 40,000 customers with 100,000 installations worldwide.  The corporate motto - 'Efficient Engineering' - underlines the proficiency of optimized, efficient processes, which keep companies competitive in the long term.
