EPLAN Software & Service GmbH & Co., a provider software for global engineering solutions, announced the release of Fluid Hose Configurator version 2.7. This solution provides the hydraulics user with a wizard for complete specification of a hydraulic hose line.
Extension for the EPLAN Fluid Hose Configurator:
- Simultaneous updating of the type code and of the hose line identification
In the EPLAN Fluid Hose Configurator the previous popup menu item Update type code has been renamed to Update. Through this functionally you can now simultaneously update the generated type code and the hose line identification. The extended Update functionality is available in the Configure hose lines dialog of the add-on variant as well as as a button in the toolbar.
About EPLAN Fluid Hose Configurator. The EPLAN Fluid Hose Configurator provides the hydraulics user with a wizard for complete specification of a hydraulic hose line. The entries required to this purpose are displayed clearly and the user guided. A norm-compliant type code is generated automatically in accordance with predefinable sets of rules (such as to DIN 20066) and transferred to the selected hydraulic hose line. This normcompliant type code allows the hose line to be ordered clearly defined at any supplier. EPLAN Fluid can be used to generate report pages as additional information for documentation, thus supporting clear communication between the purchaser and the supplier of the hose line. The EPLAN Fluid Hose Configurator is available both as a functionality within EPLAN Fluid and as a stand-alone version. This can be installed separately and is suitable for use, for example, in mounting / manufacturing.
The following workflows thus result:
- Complete editing by the designer with EPLAN Fluid
In this working method the EPLAN Fluid user uses the functionality of the hose line configuration as a wizard for defining the planned hose lines. The complete description of the hose line is carried out here within EPLAN Fluid.
- Interaction between designer and installer (manufacturing)
In this working method the designer defines the hose lines and specifies framework data (pressure range, nominal diameter. etc., but not however the installation dimensions). The configuration can be exported using the export functions. The installer uses the stand-alone version of the hose line configurator and imports the transferred data. During installation of the hose lines he / she enters the installation dimensions really determined (for example hose line length, torsion angle, etc.) in the configurator and exports the enriched data. Subsequently the designer can transfer the data into the documentation without additional effort in EPLAN Fluid and generate the report pages.
- Usage by the installer or Sales as a stand-alone version
In this working method the system is used completely without the EPLAN Platform. The hose line configurator here serves solely for the guided definition of the hose lines.
