Sneak Preview of the Eplan Platform 2022

Eplan Platform 2022

Apr 22, 2021

The highlight of the Eplan Platform 2022 is a completely new user interface that significantly improves the overall ease of use. The focus here is on simplicity and clarity, with optics and functionality based on state-of-the-art apps for mobile devices and internationally established desktop applications. Variable tabs give users direct access to important and often-used functions. The practical multifunctional toolbar with modern ribbon technology flexibly adapts to the application, for instance when switching from 2D to 3D. It also combines different menus and toolbars into one, making daily work easier for experienced users while at the same time enabling an efficient (re)introduction to the software.

Furthermore, Eplan has completely redesigned the user interface for both 2D and 3D engineering. The overall result is a modern application with an optimal look and feel, not least via the support of dark and light modes.

Strong performance even for large projects

A completely new graphics module in the 2D area ensures optimal performance, even for large projects. Processing has been significantly accelerated, particularly when importing DXF or DWG files. The new centralised device management also serves as a performance driver and additionally offers more flexibility for converting device data by way of object-oriented data management. The integrated variant management allows users to save all device properties with the individual variant. Now devices can easily be assigned different macros in no time at all – for easy processing of external device data, even in combination with Excel.

Good overview at the project level

The new Backstage view lets users edit all aspects of an Eplan Project from a central location – for instance opening and creating projects, importing DWG files, and exporting PLC or manufacturing data. A list of the recently used projects provides an excellent overview – as does the logical organisation of all project-related actions. And the newly integrated insertion centre unifies all the functions for inserting symbols, macros and devices, including a graphic preview – everything that is needed for efficiently creating schematics. Frequently used components can be marked as favourites and tagged for individual workflows.

Eplan eManage combines Platform with the cloud

The new Eplan Platform 2022, which is being launched this summer under the motto “It’s in your hands”, features many more innovations. One of them is the direct connection of on-premise and the cloud. Now with Eplan eManage, projects from the Eplan Platform can be uploaded directly into the cloud environment and be shared and managed from there. The free version has been available since mid-March. The fact that the Eplan Platform 2022 is being offered exclusively as a subscription once again underpins the clear focus on the future. Especially in volatile times, the investment risk for companies is reduced by way of low entry prices and more flexible planning options for individual software use.
