Five principles for working with EPLAN Electric P8. Importing commented PDF documents. This reference book, now in its fourth edition, offers a comprehensive introduction to electrical engineering design with EPLAN Electric P8. Based on version
Furthermore, the book assumes that the user has all of the user rights in EPLAN and is logged in as the local administrator. All of this additional data is available in the sample data. In addition, some custom, non-standard shortcut keys were also used. The following text boxes are used to visually highlight notes, tips, etc.
TO DO: This box gives you practical exercises to let you try out what you have learned. This box provides additional information and tips. Since installation requires few steps and can only be performed by the system administrator, this chapter provides only a basic description of this process. EPLAN is usually already installed on the workstation. If rights management is not used, then EPLAN can be started by all users without requiring passwords, etc.
User management an add-on that must be downloadd separately and is not always included with every license is not described in this book.
Brief general information is provided as necessary at the appropriate points. For Version 2. EPLAN has no special requirements for the graphics card or other hardware components.
A standard computer as used for Office applications, for example, is sufficient. Certain add-ons, such as EPLAN Pro Panel and its extensions, have other hardware requirements that affect the graphics card and its drivers. I feel that a single-screen solution can no longer be recommended for EPLAN due to the many additional modular dialogs that can be displayed, such as the various navigators.
There are only a few entries in the Windows registry, which is commendable and not always the case today. Installation is usually started using the installation CD.
The Setup. Installation after downloading the installation package from the EPLAN homepage works the same way the downloaded ZIP file unpacks the installation data into the same directories that would be on the installation DVD.
NET Framework. NET Framework is not installed, or is not installed in the required version, it must be installed before you can proceed with the installation of EPLAN. When the next button is clicked, the Target directories, settings dialog is displayed. This is where you set the program directory, the system master data directory, the company code, and the directories for user, workstation and company settings.
You must also define the units of measurement for the system and the directory for the EPLAN original master data.
A separate plot frame can be defined for every page in the page properties independently of the global plot frame setting. The page settings always have priority over the global project settings.
Defines the symbol libraries used in this project. New entries addi- tion of symbol libraries are automatically stored in the project after the setting is saved. Settings for displaying translation lan- guages displaying translations in the project are also configured here. You also have to define a source language here. This helps to prevent operating errors, e. Specifies the storage location of the new project. Any storage location can be selected using the button.
You select a template using the selection button. The usual range of templates and basic projects are available for selection. These fields cannot be changed later on. It is therefore very impor- tant to make sure you enter the correct data. After defining the above entries, you need to select a template.
This can be a project tem- plate or a basic project. You simply click the More button. You can select the relevant project type in the File type field. EPLAN then returns to the Create project dialog and imports the selected basic project or the template project into the Template field.
The new project is created from the selected basic project. This may take a while depend- ing on the hardware and the storage location server, local. You do not necessarily need to edit these at the moment. This can be done later during project editing. The project proper- ties can now be adjusted or completely changed on the Properties, Structure etc. There is one limitation: The structure of the pages, located in the Structure tab, can no longer be changed grayed out.
It is fixed because the page structure was defined in the basic project.
The project can now be edited. This makes it possible, like with terminals, to use the same designation several times PE rail , and the check run will not find any duplicate connection point designations. Click the Part number field and then use the button that appears to switch to parts man- agement.
In parts management, you Fig.
Parts management automatically closes after the part is applied. In contrast to simple part selection, this will offer only devices for selection that fit the exist- ing functions of the symbol in the project.
EPLAN data fields and external data fields are assigned in this scheme. Here, the type of data source, the data source itself and, of course, the import scheme field assignment are configured. It is also possible to select a different function definition instead of the default terminal.
Generate functions Just click the button. However, this is not a precondition.
All function definitions can be easily changed later using block editing in the terminal strip navigator. We return once more to generation of the functions: If an error exists in the numbering pattern, e. You must check for this. The newly created terminals do not have any parts data.
This data must can be assigned later using device selection. The entries are similar to the previous section.

You need to select a DT, a numbering pattern, and, most importantly, a part the device from parts management. When all entries are correct, you can start device generation by clicking the OK button. EPLAN saves the functions in the navigator as unplaced functions. They already have parts data.
What is a main terminal? It is comparable to a main function; a terminal with multiple function definitions can only be identified once as a main terminal. These are so-called auxiliary terminals. The functions in the logical PLC overview and the functions in the schematic for the PLC terminals in distributed view will be re- addressed or addressed for the first time.
EPLAN Electric P8 Getting Started
In the PLC navigator, you select the card to be addressed. EPLAN obtains the relevant prefix, meaning whether an entry begins with E or with I, according to the selected scheme, which is entered in the PLC-specific settings selection field. I recommend leaving the Preview of result parameter switched on.
Address PLC connection points Fig.During installation, EPLAN does not recognize whether this data has been changed and would therefore simply replace it. Others you will discover yourself and ask yourself why no one has ever tried it this or that way before.
The only limitations are the naming conventions of the Windows system being used. User management an add-on that must be downloadd separately and is not always included with every license is not described in this book. The project proper- ties can now be adjusted or completely changed on the Properties, Structure etc. It offers innumerable project editing options and pro- vides new innovations with each new version.
