The new System Designer tool means the hardware can be configured faster and more easily, and with fewer errors thanks to a visual editor and lifelike representations of hardware components. This design tool includes an automated plausibility check and configures basic parameter settings in addition to offering functions for reusing entire parts of a system. This helps provide optimal support for creating modular machines with all of their variants and options.
A bidirectional EPLAN Electric P8 interface enables developers to integrate ECAD projects with hardware configurations designed in Automation Studio. This cuts workload and eliminates one possible error source that arises from having two sets of master data. Similar interfaces to simulation software enable applications to be generated automatically from simulation data to test development results at an early stage.
