E3.series 2012 Provides Enhanced Support for the Automotive and Special Purpose Vehicle Industries
Optimized design process leads to improved links to manufacturing
Munich, Germany and Westford, MA, USA – Zuken announces significant enhancements for the automotive and special purpose vehicle industry in E3.series 2012, its industry-leading electrical and fluid CAD software.
With E3.series 2012, users across the vehicle industries – from trucks and tanks to buses, cars and motorcycles – will benefit from fewer iterations between manufacturing engineers and design engineers, leading to reduced design time and improved quality.
“Since we started using E3.series almost two years ago we have reduced our design cycle by almost 40%, compared with our previous practice of wire harness design using non-automated tools,” says M Amardeepkumar, R&D Manager, TVS Motors.
Connector handling gets more connected
E3.series 2012 includes fully automated connector pin terminal handling. Any modification to the wire gauge will result in automatic selection of the correct connector pin terminal; regardless of where changes are made in the design flow.
This means connector pin terminal selection, cavity seal selection and environmental terminal selection are now fully automatic, leading to fewer errors and more streamlined design flow. Designers will spend far less time considering how to configure connectors.
Anyone working with the numerous configuration choices in vehicle industries understands the complexity of the design process and the need for speed and accuracy when compiling design specifications.
To address this, E3.series 2012 has improved option handling with configurations and packages (a collection of functional additions to a vehicle). This benefits those working with options and variants as engineers can quickly access the specifications for different vehicle configurations and analyze the effects of alternative design scenarios. In keeping with E3.series’ object-oriented functionality, selecting the configuration automatically creates the relevant data for all departments involved in the production process.
E3.series 2012 enables you to configure the wire numbers in the project based on circuit functionality and signal classification. The utility is also configurable for a number of additional industries, including machinery, rail and power.
