The E3.eCheck module helps designers analyze their electrical schematic circuit and check designs for fuse and wire sizing errors. The utility works in real-time and provides instant feedback on the operability of the circuit design.It is ideally suited for engineers working with DC control systems.

The complimentary custom report and documentation generation module E3.ReportGenerator provides advanced report and template creation options

In addition, the free and open API enables custom report generation along with comprehensive automation potential

The E3.series electrical design suite has three main packages with additional add-ons to unlock specific capabilities.

  • E3.schematic is the base module providing intelligent, logical schematic creation and wiring options
  • E3.cable provides tools to streamline cabling systems design with multiple views and manufacturing details and includes all the features of E3.schematic
  • E3.panel helps drive electrical panel or cabinet design in 2D and 3D. The application includes all the features of E3.schematic
  • E3.panel+ enhances the functionality of E3.panel with smart automatic routing of the wires in the control panel wiring diagram. In addition, it provides cable segregation for EMC critical systems, drill-hole definition, and DXF import and export
  • Other targeted modules and add-on tools simplify multiple facets of the electrical design process.

Yes, we encourage evaluations of the E3.series solutions to ensure users can explore the capabilities to resolve leading electrical design challenges.

The E3.series Software Evaluations are cloud-based access to the application with a guided walk-through without the need for installation or licenses.

Harness Builder for E3.series is an integrated module purpose-built to support the custom cable and wire harness market. It enables harness manufacturers to accelerate the quote-design-manufacture process.

Yes, E3.series can connect with all leading MCAD applications with its E3.3DRoutingBridge module. The application enables the seamless transformation of 2D harness data to mechanical designers.

The intelligent library and manufacturing details captured in the design process help the E3.series drive various automated assembly and manufacturing solutions. For instance, detailed wiring outputs can power advanced wire processing machines.

Another example is cabinet design cut-outs driving automated milling and cutting machines. Explore our technology partner page for more examples.

Multiple viewer options are available for different use cases that simplify consuming the rich details captured in E3.series design projects.

The free E3.viewer application opens native files. The licensed E3.viewer plus application enables custom API access and report generation from the viewer plus module.

E3.series provides both options; a single-user access model for smaller projects and an enterprise multi-user access model for team collaboration. Using E3.enterprise, multiple engineers can simultaneously work on the same design with live data syncing to ensure consistency

E3.series supports various versions of DWG and DXF files with configurable import and export options to enable a flexible design process.

E3.series provides a range of data management options to suit various workflows. The most impactful work-in-progress data management option is Zuken’s DS-E3 solution.

DS-E3 is explicitly built for electrical design and manufacturing teams to manage the design data easily. It also excels at managing tasks and workflows, enabling intelligent design reuse and easily connecting to enterprise-level PDM and PLM systems.

E3.series Component Cloud is provided through cooperation with CADENAS, a leading provider of online component libraries. Libraries are provided directly by the manufacturers of the respective electronic components.

The cost of the E3.series solution varies with the desired capabilities of the design teams. The sales team is well-equipped to ascertain the design requirements to provide targeted pricing.
