Zuken, CADENAS and ECAD-Port to Cooperate on Component Library
Electrical designers can access free library data from more than 250 component manufacturers.
November 20, 2018
Zuken, CADENAS and ECAD-Port are working together to provide online access to free, validated, electrical component data to users of Zuken’s E³.series electrical design tools. The agreement will extend the CADENAS offering from more than 700 component manufacturers through the addition of electrical content provided directly by component OEMs. The partners expect to rapidly grow the CADENAS library from its current number of 250 electrical, fluid and automation manufacturers.
According to a press release, the partnership will provide the following benefits for electrical designers:
- Users of Zuken’s E³.series ECAD environment will gain direct access to the CADENAS component portal where they can search for components and load the required parts directly into E³.series. This digital engineering data are enriched with intelligent information such as electronic symbols, connections points and technical product information.
- ECAD-Port will be available as a service provider to OEMs for content creation and attribute mapping services using both eCl@ss and E³.series formats.
- ECAD-Port will provide mapping assistance to all E³.series customers who operate an E³.database, offering specific attributes or content such as individual ERP number or customer specific symbols.
“We have been supporting the eCl@ss initiative for many years,” says Joachim Frank, managing director Zuken E3. “Zuken’s intention was to provide users a reliable source of high quality manufacturer certified component information. Therefore, CADENAS’ data portal was our first choice.”
Jürgen Heimbach, CEO of CADENAS says: “Our cooperation with Zuken opens new opportunities to the electrical engineering community. Through providing intelligent enriched engineering data, electrical engineers no longer need to manually search and add information. This saves valuable time for their product development.”
