The Solution

EPLAN provides a solution package includes EPLAN Electric P8 and EPLAN Fluid - integrated solutions that have had a lasting impact on the development of Comac machinery. Once the data of an article code has been recorded – as would be the case with a macro – it can easily be recalled for every new project. This cuts out errors and saves a significant amount of time. In addition, EPLAN automatically generates the technical documentation for the office that drafts the manuals and other documentation of the machines. This means that redundant documentation as well as non-automated information exchange are dispensed with. At Comac, they have also managed to automate the integration of the system with the PLC. All of the information concerning inputs/outputs and the related descriptions is automatically transferred by the system to the software office, along with all the information needed to operate the component and without any manual data input.
