EPLAN FieldSys allows cable laying routes to be configured exactly to scale. This comprehensive planning tool includes routing, database-assisted management of cable routes and automatic data analysis to accelerate processes, simplify assembly and servicing and ensure highly efficient system planning. 2D layout of a production area with grid network and reports on field cabling

EPLAN FieldSys is a field cabling add-on module, which will be available with the new EPLAN Platform 2.2 as of October 2012. FieldSys is based on a 2D machine/plant layout which can be read into EPLAN in DWG or DXF format, for example. Within the EPLAN Platform, the system configurer can add a to-scale network of routes to this layout and display the possible cable laying routes. This means connections between controller and field components can be planned efficiently, and permanently documented. The next stage involves locating the automation components and field devices recorded in the wiring diagrams in the layout.

Comprehensive reports included
Based on the connections between the devices defined in the electrical wiring diagram, EPLAN routes all cable connections within the defined network. Individual laying rules help plan optimum cable routes through the network. The length of the cables is also calculated, as are any extras required to connect the devices. Based on this routing information, EPLAN FieldSys generates comprehensive cable reports at the touch of a button. These reports are particularly important for assembly. Calculation of the cable length required for each cable type and connection, including source and target information, will guarantee accurate results. There are also reports showing the exact route for every cable, which are very helpful during the laying process. From the source, the fitter can follow the documentation step by step to the destination, thus finding the ideal, defined cable route quickly.
