EPLAN fluid

Pneumatic circuit diagrams

Eplan and Festo work together in the creation of pneumatic circuit diagrams: the EPLAN Fluid engineering tool is linked to the Festo xDKI catalogue on DVD. This import function can be used to transfer all the data and pneumatic circuit symbols for Festo products relevant to parts lists.


The new platform incorporates all CAx solutions from Eplan Software & Service. EPLAN Electric P8 is also built on this platform. The direct, unrestricted linkage to fluid engineering – to EPLAN Fluid, to be exact (previously fluidPLAN) – forms a perfect union between hardware and fluid engineering. The same database and object orientation permit online links between the different document types. Changes made in one place are immediately available for all relevant functions, no matter whether in electrical or fluid engineering.
