E³ is a modern system that has a range of standard interfaces to communicate with other solutions.
E³.series includes the '3D Cabinet Layout Design '.
Additionally E³.series offers standard interfaces to most 3D systems on the market.
Relevant data which may be interfaced;
• Cabinet/module/model layout topology (via STEP)
• Detailed electrical-/connection/-wire- data for special cable design (Harness Design) Most of the interface exists and can be ordered from E³ Product List (E³.3Dbridge)
PDM / PLM / ERP
Many companies already have ERP/PLM/PDM/EDM solutions installed and integrated with their business systems. E³.series is a modern and open system that can be integrated with these solutions using.
E³.series Application Program Interface (API). E³.series already offers a selection of pre-developed interfaces to selected solutions on the market (;and if that does not exist, it will be possible to develop this specifically using the system's API).
With E³.series you may generate most any error free input required for a company individual manufacturing process.
In general, - E³.series may generate/communicate :
any type of list/report flexible in regards to content & format (;El/Aut.& Process)
interface to ERP/PDM/EDM / configurators (;sales/logistics/'lifecycle'/purchasing/documentation)
revision management and change control (;traceability)
calculations, verifications and simulation/analysis
Interface to the 3D 'Routing solutions'
2D Harness Layout & 1:1 Nailboard Drawings
Wire, cut & marking machines
Interface for Zuken's Topology Designer
CNC sheet metal machines Drilling & Cutout
Wire cut & marking machines
PLC I/O Export-Import programming units
Interface to 3D Hydraulic/Pneumatic Routing solutions
Integrated Redline & Markup tools
Spare-part & equipment version overview
E³.series can be integrated to market standard or self-designed configuration solutions to automatically generate the necessary main- & sub-documentation. This provides extreme savings in time for the generation of order-specific documentation.
By using E³ Unique Variant & Option-handling you minimizes the number of basic modules and work to maintain these.
To check whether your specific configuration solution can be used as 'front-end' to the E³, - just contact us.
Export & Import
E³.series supports the export & import to various standard file formats. In order to be able have the reuse of data, migrate the old with the new design, as well as satisfy customers' requirements to receive the documentation electronically in specified format - it is important that E³ export and import most file formats as the market demands.
