Wire Harness and Nailboard Electrical Design Software – EPLAN Harness ProD

Wire Harness and Nailboard Electrical Design Software – EPLAN Harness ProD

EPLAN Harness proD is an advanced 3D software system for the effective design and documentation of wire harnesses. The strengths of the system lie in the automated steps involved, from importing the wiring lists from the EPLAN Platform, to routing the cables and generating documentation and 2D nailboard drawings. The ability of the wire harness design software to take over mechanically relevant information from several MCAD and ECAD connection information implies that EPLAN Harness proD has the potential to be seamlessly integrated into PDM environments. This enables the design of the wire harness design even when there is no mechanical prototype available. As a result, development times are reduced, productivity is increased and project quality is improved on a continual basis.

Key Features

The key features of the EPLAN Harness proD are:

  • Simplification of the most important stages of the design process
  • Easy definition of cable and wire harness routes with an intuitive 'point and click' method within the 3-dimensional space
  • Simple adoption of wiring lists and connection information from EPLAN
  • Fully automated routing of wires and cables on previously defined paths
  • Values for bundle diameters and wire lengths are always up to date
  • Tracking of all wire harness elements which belong together, such as wires, cable shoes, connectors
  • Automatic placement of buffers and stoppers
  • Test functions: checks on minimum bending radii, cross sections (also AWG) and wire harness collisions and checks on bundle diameters and length restrictions
  • 2D production drawings - from 1:1 pin-board to handy service documents in the scale required
  • Automatic generation of delivery date and material calculations, weight calculations and wiring and parts lists
  • Derivation of control files for wiring and cable assembly machines for optimum production integration
  • Benefits: enhancing wire harness design
  • Project management: Clear management of all documents and information within a wire harness project
  • Variants and options: Extensive functions for the management of variants and options
  • Form board: Automatic derivation of a 2D form board diagram from the 3D wire harness
  • Parts lists: User-defined material and parts lists, cable diagrams and time, cost and weight calculations
  • EPLAN Harness proD 2D: Individual form board design in 2D, even without 3D data
  • MCAD integration: Adoption of 3D data, interfaces to standard MCAD systems and neutral CAD formats
  • Component data: Individual definition of standard components such as connectors, cables, splices, etc.
  • Data integration: Open system; seamless integration into the product development process (PEP, PDM)
