Commissioning dates and production costs cecome more predictable. The specialist no longer wastes his competencies by dull-wise wiring a cabinet according to the circuit diagram! Put it in the planning better, then you win twice!

ESplan® & Espace® the modern solution for innovative companies.

Espace® uniquely connects the 3D mechanical design world with electrical engineering to a mechatronic virtual product and in addition to many validations makes all essential manufacturing data possible. You see your virtual product in front of you, there is no here and again, here the reality speaks, make use of this professional solution! For this purpose, all well-know 3D CAD formats are supported by an import converter. Fort he classic medium-sized switchgear builders, part servers are available, which provide almost all important 3D manufacturer components such as control cabinets, symbols, etc. For assembly and construction of billboards. If a symbol is missing, this can be easily created using Espace® on-board tools. These objects are managed in Espace® symbol and macro libraries. Once made, they are permanently usable.

What is needed to perform a virtual modeling?

The circuit diagram created with corresponding device article data in ESplan® is checked with the Circuit-Cleaner! This allows you to continiue seamlessly and build your model. The 3D control cabinet in the native format o ras a stepfile from the manufacturer, these are generally offered by the manufacturers. The 3D hardware symbols of part servers of the manufacturers, e.g. CADENAS, TraceParts, etc. or even created with Espace® and already you are there…

Die Espace® System-Module:

Let’s start with the routers, yes it’s right, Espace® offers three router techniques for three different applications! The heart of Espace® are the BMK controller, the router and the routing designer.

Using the control cabinet as an example, Espace® offers a 3D Street mesh router, which is precisely tailored to these tasks in order to route intelligent and fully automatic cable routes from source to the target via cable ducts or cable areas. This router works intelligently. It is able to calculate all possibilities of the cable route management in a timely or cost-controlled manner and to inform you that the appropriate routing levels and the set runtime costs can be used for 3D routing. All routed lines are displayed with real cross-sections in 3D in the cable channels or guides. In this way, an absolutely accurate and suitable management of the cables is achieved without unpleasant surprises occurring during the later installation. No one-line displays are generated with Espace®! The Espace® Routing debugger provides quick help if the router is not able to route one or more lines. For example, Espace® offers a 3D Street mesh router that is precisely tailored to these tasks in order to be intelligent on and around the control cabinet And fully automatic routing routes from source via cable ducts to the destination.

Using the example of a machine cabling, it is quickly clear that a different cable laying concept must be produced here. This is about routing cables to motors, sensors, etc. in a 3D machine model. With the help of a cable routing router as well as the Espace® cable routing designer, the most complex cable routing systems can be generated or constructed quickly. Espace® offers perfect robe and spline techniques and their processing. These techniques, as we offer them, do not appear in any classical 3D CAD system. In the routing and routing process all line data are calculated by the system

If the design goal is to engineer virtual devices with boards or boards and to cabling them by models, you can quickly reach cable trees. Espace® offers a further routing and routing concept. In particular, Espace® offers a new way of designing high-precision cable harnesses for the mechanical construction of a cable construction mechanic (nail board).

The Espace® BMK Controller accesses the shared data base of Espace® device data and connection data and controls all the fixtures in the model. The BMK controller is the central control center for many actions in Espace®.

Espace® works with the help of a very fast automatic component assembly process based on a freely designable and workable placement profile. In this process, you achieve the highest placement comfort with top performance. In addition, this process offers the possibility of quickly obtaining standardization in the construction of skilifts, without sacrificing individual design. As a rule, max. 6-10 Assembly profiles, which are used with various different Plandatas as mounting plate assemblies. In addition, device-related 3D placeholders can be used for automatic device installation. This is much easier than the classic method. In this way, complete models can be saved as macros with fixed device positions for future use.

Ab isolation parameter, stop object and CO.

With the aid of a device database, device pin-related parts such as wire end ferrules can be taken from these, the article data can be extracted therefrom, the insulation lengths for wire expanders as well as cable data export can be provided so that fully automatic cable manufacture can be performed without these expenses. The device database has an import interface through which mapping of various manufacturer artisans can be integrated for this requirement.

Profitability and added value.

Reducing throughput times and saving costs is the everyday challenge of a manufacturing company. Espace® supports you as a key building block on your way to the solution. ESplan® and Espace® is the first comprehensive software solution to support the workflow in the sense of mechatronics, which is based on common development and data bases.

Costs: The cost of acquisition costs and training costs per workplace license is manageable and cost-effective. Depending on the requirements, the training takes between 2 and 5 days to work immediately afterwards. The installation and implementation is possible in a few hours through standard interfaces.

Benefit: The combination of work processes considerably reduces throughput times and increases the productivity increase. Massive time savings of up to 90% are possible with the cable assembly, cost reduction by validation virtual prototypes, elimination of multiple work, data consistency for error prevention and communication flow without information break through transparency. All in all, savings of up to 30% of the total product development process can be assumed. The amortization is carried out within a few months.
