Zuken Introduces E3.series Industry Editions
Specially configured electrical design suites meet the needs of key industries
Since 2003, electrical systems in Mercedes-Benz cars have been developed using Zuken’s E3.series. Our continued relationship with customers like Mercedes-Benz is validation of our dedication to keeping E3.series at the forefront of electrical design.
Munich, Germany and Westford, MA, USA – Zuken announces E3.series industry editions, which are now available with E3.series 2012 – its leading electrical and fluid CAD software. E3.series 2012 has many enhancements and includes specially configured packages for key industries.
E3.series industry editions are offered in the following configurations:
The industry editions have evolved through Zuken’s experience working with key customers in each of these sectors. Working with Mercedes-Benz, for example, has been instrumental in the development of the Transportation Edition.
“Since 2003, electrical systems in Mercedes-Benz cars have been developed using Zuken’s E3.series. Our continued relationship with customers like Mercedes-Benz is validation of our dedication to keeping E3.series at the forefront of electrical design," said Steve Chidester, Zuken’s Head of International Marketing.
Every industry has its own methods and standards: E3.series editions contain the functionality core to these industries. For example, those in the power industry adhere to IEC (International Electronic Council) 81346 standards, so the Power Edition has structured projects, reports and templates that fit with this standard.
Another example is the Transportation Edition, which includes Vehicle Electric Container (VEC) standard STEP AP212/KBL. This defines the exchange format of a vehicle wire harness between OEMs and their suppliers.
Tools for growth
Many of our customers find that the range of features and tools offered with the industry editions provides comprehensive coverage of their needs. For example, the Machinery Edition includes both E3.schematic and E3.panel. Companies who document their panels in a non-intelligent drafting system can easily develop integrated schematics and panels in one environment, where design changes are immediately reflected across the whole project.
E3.series 2012 is now available. For more information on new features introduced in this version, visit www.zuken.com/e3series-2012.
