EPLAN announces Harness proD version 2.6 3D/2D design software

December 16, 2016 – The EPLAN Harness proD version 2.6 is 3D/2D software that covers all of today´s requirements for wiring and wire harness engineering. Features include automatic wire dimensioning and routing of wires with predefined lengths. Open interfaces allow for true collaboration between mechanical and electrical engineering. In addition, version 2.6 delivers improvements in the handoff of design data to manufacturing drawings, such as integrating 2D wire drawings, which are automatically derived from the 2D/3D design environment and specify both dimension points and terminal points. Stripping lengths and wire coatings also can be defined in the design phase, and professionally depicted in the manufacturing drawings. This provides users with a comprehensive overview of their projects.

Users may predefine a fixed length - for antenna cables. During the design process, the current and targeted length are shown precisely and users can see at a glance how the wires can be optimally routed. This allows for the reduction of variations in storage and manufacturing. Additional functions for the creation of wiring units allow elements to be grouped together and for the assignment of component numbers to wiring units.

The connection of Harness ProD 2.6 to the EPLAN Platform and system openness to MCAD and ECAD ensures a continuous workflow between electrical and mechanical engineering. Another feature: with version 2.6, EPLAN ECAD projects can be transferred directly into the wire harness software. The EPLAN Platform´s central parts management supports integrated data storage for all Platform products including Harness ProD, so users maintain master data in one system. This allows for integrated working processes for wire harness engineering from the schematics to manufacturing.

Numerous functional enhancements in Harness ProD 2.6 contribute to making wiring design and wire harness projects more efficient. The software  supports all industries in which wiring and wire harnesses must be routed, such as special-purpose vehicles, equipment manufacturers, wiring/wire harness prefabrication, machinery manufacturers and company divisions where interdisciplinary cooperation is required.
