EPLAN Data Portal tops a million downloads a month

17 March 2017

The newly enhanced Data Portal from CAE software provider, EPLAN, has achieved more than a million downloads for individual parts’ data in a month!

The surge in uptake is a direct result of the EPLAN’s decision to open the EPLAN Data Portal free of charge to all engineers, irrespective of the electrical design software they use. 

Since becoming freely available online, users’ interest in the EPLAN Data Portal has reached unprecedented levels. This popularity is well deserved as engineers are saving precious time by integrating current data directly into projects using ‘drag and drop’ functionality. 

At present, data for more than 635,000 devices is available on the EPLAN Data Portal, with an additional 1.2 million variants accessible via configuration. The trend toward products and solutions compatible with Industry 4.0 is further amplifying the interest in this valuable parts data – and one of the greatest benefits is that the information can be used throughout the entire product development process, saving design time and money for users. 

Stefan Domdey, Global Coordinator for EPLAN Data Portal, explains: “We’re delighted that the free-of-charge EPLAN Data Portal is being so well received around the world and that the number of downloads is continually increasing. This motivates us to integrate even more manufacturers and their device data.

“Discussions are on-going with component manufacturers worldwide aimed at incorporating into the portal stakeholders who aren’t yet participating. So far, the number of manufacturers represented is 155 – and this number is increasing all the time,” he enthused. 

In 2016 alone, EPLAN was able to welcome 33 new manufacturers. That equals a growth of 29 percent and includes globally respected brands such as Belden Cable, Cisco, Hyundai Heavy Industries, LSIS, TE Connectivity, Wittenstein and Yokogawa – to name just a few.
