EPLAN Software & Service offers CAx solutions for machine and system documentation in areas such as electrical engineering and fluid engineering. The products “EPLAN Electric P8” and “EPLAN Fluid” are used to create electropneumatic circuit diagrams. Festo has supported these applications for many years with macros for more than 38,000 components in 21 languages. In addition to individual macros, Festo also offers further services that are especially recommended for complex products.
Individual macros in the EPLAN Data Portal
You can conveniently find individual macros for Festo products in the EPLAN Data Portal using the relevant part number or type code. Depending on the product, different variants are available for various plan types. In addition to function and graphics macros, product information is also provided.
Complete EPLAN projects for complex products
The manual documentation of a complex product like a valve terminal is time consuming and can be prone to mistakes. The Festo web service simplifies and speeds up this process by automatically generating a correctly configured EPLAN project based on the individual configuration of a product, the order code. The service is available to you in the Festo App World.
Video tutorials: how to create automated EPLAN projects
The Festo video tutorials show you step by step how to create automated EPLAN projects in accordance with the individual configuration of the valve terminals by using the Schematic Solution app and then integrate them into your existing EPLAN documentation.
