then let us introduce you to the e3-series-iconseries


Object-oriented Architecture

The e3-series-iconseries is based upon an object-oriented database with all modules feeding back to a single data structure. There is no data transfer between the individual modules, ensuring that errors are avoided while increasing the quality of the results and ensuring any necessary changes are made efficiently.


The bi-directional programming interface permits access to the object-oriented database. Integrated interfaces make it possible to import and export DXF/DWG, TIFF, GIF, JPG, PDF, DGN, CGM and VRML, STEP AP-214 data. e3-series-iconseries accepts data from other ECAD systems and is easy to integrate into your existing design environment, with PDM, ERP or 3D M-CAD systems.


The multi-user option of e3-series-iconseries Enterprise makes simultaneous engineering possible, significantly reducing the lead time of your project.

Variable Definition

You do not have to draw similar projects over and over. If necessary you can define the subprojects of your project as variants and activate the relevant parts. Or you can turn the same project into another project with a few clicks of different options.

e3-series-iconpanel is fully integrated in e3-series-iconschematic and e3-series-iconcable and the complete solution for placing and wiring components in panels and on mounting plates alternatively in 2D and 3D.

e3-series-iconpanel contains all information about the schematic data and as a result of the object-oriented data structure the modifications can be implemented immediately. Modifications to the panel layout and wiring are automatically updated in the schematic. The optional routing module calculates all routing pathways and wire lengths automatically. In doing so, these specifications are considered using signal classes. e3-series-iconpanel outputs wiring lists with the exact routing pathways and wire lengths as well as additional attributes necessary for production.

e3-series-iconcable is ideally suited for industries developing power and control harnesses for the automotive, off-highway and special purpose vehicle, and aerospace industries, or those developing field cabling for plant and machinery.
e3-series-iconcable supports multi-view functionality; devices and cables detailed in the schematic can also be shown in a documentation view with manufacturing data added. Modifications carried out anywhere in the design are automatically updated in all other views.
e3-series-iconcable is integrated with 3D drawing programs and has comprehensive analysis capabilities. When working with 3D harness design systems, it calculates cable and wire lengths and controls bend radius.
The program supports multiple languages and all Windows® fonts. With a simple operation, any text can be displayed on the desired side. At the same time, Asian characters are available with UNICODE. With 10 user interfaces available on the ground, e3-series-iconCable is used by engineers in many countries around the world in their native language.
