  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
EPLAN Electric P8 is a CAE system for the electrical configuring of electric equipment (e.g. control cabinets). It supports the designer in the configuring, documentation and management of projects.

EPLAN Electric P8 allows to create the wiring diagrams of the control cabinet, manage the article master data, automatically generate parts lists, terminal diagrams, PLC diagrams and overview graphics, create the documentation for the equipment and design the mechanical configuration of the control cabinet.

In particular more complex devices such as controllers and frequency converters are not provided as standard symbols in EPLAN, but have to be generated by the user as a macro.


EPLAN Electric P8 macros in edz format

The provision of EPLAN Electric P8 macros in edz format helps significantly shorten the engineering time. To reduce the expenditure for integrating the necessary data in the EPLAN system, Siemens provides the EPLAN Electric P8 macros in the edz format. This contains for each order number a file including all the necessary information (e.g. article master data, data sheets, macros and further CAx data).

The EPLAN Electric P8 macros in edz format are provided for all current and future SINAMICS products only at the following Internet addresses:
