Automation software

Anyone who wants to successfully design basic and further training for automation technology must ensure that everything fits together: hardware, software and teachware. In the age of digitalisation, basic and further training without software is unthinkable. We offer a wide range of software for learning, teaching and organising, for controlling, operating and monitoring and, last but not least, for programming and simulation. See for yourself.

Project and design engineering

For over 25 years, the name EPLANhas been synonymous with innovative software solutions and service concepts for all aspects of electrical and fluid project planning, design and engineering.

Economy 4.0: SAP4School

In cooperation with SAP, we offer an interface for the training program ‘SAP4School’ under the general heading of Economics 4.0. With this interface, production work orders can be transferred back and forth between SAP and MES4. Membership of the SAP4School program is a prerequisite for being able to acquire and use the interface.
