Here, the type of data source, the data source itself and, of course, the import scheme field assignment are configured. It is also possible to select a different function definition instead of the default terminal.
Generate functions Just click the button. However, this is not a precondition. All function definitions can be easily changed later using block editing in the terminal strip navigator. We return once more to generation of the functions: The functions can only be generated when all entered data is correct EPLAN will enable the OK button.
If an error exists in the numbering pattern, e. You must check for this. This data must can be assigned later using device selection. The entries are similar to the previous section.
You need to select a DT, a numbering pattern, and, most importantly, a part the device from parts management. When all entries are correct, you can start device generation by clicking the OK button. EPLAN saves the functions in the navigator as unplaced functions. They already have parts data. What is a main terminal? It is comparable to a main function; a terminal with multiple function definitions can only be identified once as a main terminal.
These are so-called auxiliary terminals. The functions in the logical PLC overview and the functions in the schematic for the PLC terminals in distributed view will be re- addressed or addressed for the first time.
In the PLC navigator, you select the card to be addressed. EPLAN obtains the relevant prefix, meaning whether an entry begins with E or with I, according to the selected scheme, which is entered in the PLC-specific settings selection field.
I recommend leaving the Preview of result parameter switched on. Address PLC connection points Fig. The NEW. Here you must make the desired entries and save the properties. You can also immediately perform a device selection for the new PLC card.
All objects are assigned to this macro box now. It can also be necessary to depict a device multiple times. In such cases, cross-references identify the fact that individual com- ponents belong together. A cross-reference shows you where the other part of a device can be found in the schematic. Using cross-references, you can reliably find a component or associated parts on a series of pages.
How are cross-references displayed in the schematic? The cross-references are shown in the order [Separator]Page name [Separator]Column by default.
Example: To do this, we will use an example still to be created from your practice project. The NC power contact K on the first schematic page will later be cross-referenced to a coil which then is located on page 2 in row In our example, the resulting cross-reference will be shown under the displayed DT K By default, the cross-references receive a different color than the other elements displayed.
Automatically Generating Interruption Point Cross-references First, insert two interruption points on the second schematic page. Interrup- tion points are used to represent connections across more than one page. First open the page 3 with the description Control circuit. To do this, select them in the Page navigator and double-click on the page.
EPLAN opens the page in the graphical editor. Type in manually the interruption point Displayed DT L1 or se- lect the interruption point name via the […] button of the displayed DT line. See also the description in the section “Inserting ‘Interruption Point’ Con- nection Symbols” on page Changing display settings for the interruption points To prevent the device tag from crossing future autoconnect lines, additional settings must be made in the appropriate property dialogs.
In the Properties components : Interruption point dialog, switch to the Display tab. The displayed properties are shown to the left of the insertion point. The cross-references are displayed at both inserted interruption points be- side the device tag. The cross-references refer to the interruption points with the same dis- played DT located on the first schematic page. On this page, too, corre- sponding cross-references are displayed at the interruption points.
Then select the corresponding option in the T-node right dialog see section “Inserting ‘T-node’ Connection Symbols” on page The distance is actually determined by the end of the ladder. The contact image is automatically positioned at a pre- determined that can be changed in the plot frame position on the right hand side of the ladder. This enables us to move the coil without having to reposition the contact image.
This form of cross-reference display is often used for contactor coils and -or motor overload switches. The graphical rep- resentation of the contact image display can be set on a global project set- ting or can be user-defined at the coil. To change the contact image display, double click on the coil and view the tab control Contact image setting.
If the User-defined check box is not checked, the default setting from your project are taken over. To change the actual look, you may check the User- defined and change at will the settings, to see the changes hit the [Apply] button.
Try out changing the Rotation: to “0 degrees”. Try out unchecking the Show symbols. Try out unchecking the Display cross-references vertically and you can discover yourself the different looks you may give your contact image. Since we are using the same displayed DT for the coil as for the power con- tacts on the first schematic page, EPLAN automatically generates a contact image.
This includes the connection point designations, the symbols, and the schematic positions of the contacts cross-referenced to the coil and is shown below the coil. Inserting another contact for the coil Now use symbol selection to insert another contact for the coil.
The DT selection dialog which then appears shows all the DTs present in the project which match the given function. The cross-reference to the coil on the same page is displayed in the sche- matic immediately.
Inserting Contacts and Contact Image for Motor Overload Switches Finally, insert one more contacts on this page for the motor overload switch Q on the first schematic page. In the Symbol selection dia- log, select the Tree tab. In the tree, select the Coil, contacts, and Position the NC contact at the coordinates row in the schematics.
In the properties dialog, switch to the NC contact tab. Enter the value Q into the Displayed DT field. Or apply the displayed DT using DT selection.
To do so, click the [ On the motor overload switch itself, you see the contacts shown as a cross- reference. It could also be shown as a contact image display like the one we had on the coils. You may jump to your Motor Overload switch, simply by right mouse clicking over the NC Contact Q and select the menu item Go to counterpiece.
OR For contacts to be shown in a contact image, appropriate display settings must be made for the contact image in the properties dialog of the motor overload switch.
Look at these settings in the motor overload switch. In the properties dialog, switch to the Display tab. This setting is preset by default during insertion of motor overload switches.
Now you are finished with both of the schematic pages of your project. In the next chapter you will learn how to assign parts to the devices inserted. Selecting Parts In the previous two chapters, you created a simple schematic.
Before you start with reports and, for instance, can automatically generate a parts list, you must enter parts for the devices inserted. The Parts tab is available in the property dialog of the components to do this. Here you can manually enter the parts or select them using part selec- tion.
What you Need to Know in Advance What is part selection? Part selection is a dialog you can use to select parts and their data from a data source. What is parts management? Parts management is the part of the program in which you can manage information specific to parts and people: items such as part number, cus- tomer, manufacturer, or supplier data.
You can access a parts database already filled with sample data or create your own database, which you must then fill with data. Assigning Parts 1. First, if necessary, open the first schematic page 2 Main Circuit of your practice project. Click [ The button appears once you click on the corresponding table cell in the Part number column. Structurally, this dialog is exactly like Parts management.
In the left half, the parts are shown in a tree or a list, where the tree structure is subdivided into multiple product gen- eral product groups electrical, fluid, mechanical. In the right half of the dialog, you see the data belonging to the element or elements selected in the left window. Click on the popup menu button and select the menu item Expand from the popup menu.
The parts numbers are shown on the lowest level in the tree. To reduce the amount of data shown, select a filter now. The check box Identifier Q is already prefilled. Click [OK] to confirm the setting. In Part selection, select the corresponding Active check box for the Automatic filter so that the filter settings will be used. In the tree from product group Power switchgear, select the part SIE. Whenever there is a difference between the data stored for the part and the data in the component, this dialog is called during Part selection.
For the property Characteristic, click the Option field and select the entry Retain from the drop-down list. If the entry Parts data is selected, then you will see data here such as the Part number, which is taken from Parts management and cannot be changed. If you selected Part reference data, then data is shown here, such as Service time, which you can also store for a part in Parts management. In contrast to the “pure” parts data, however, you have the option of changing this data in the properties dialog and adapting it to the corresponding device in your own project.
Close the properties dialog with [OK]. Note: If you mistakenly enter or select the wrong part number in the Parts tab, you can delete it by selecting the corresponding table row and clicking on the Delete button.
Repeat this action for the devices listed below. Assign the parts to each de- vice based on the Part number listed. To do this, you must always select the Retain option for each property. Safety fuse F PHO. After you have assigned parts to some devices in this section, you can start on reports in the next chapter.
Generating Reports Now that you have created a schematic in the previous chapters and as- signed parts to the devices inserted, you can have EPLAN generate reports on the information in your schematic and automatically output different re- port pages. Generating a Terminal Diagram 1. You can use this dialog to create and manage project reports. Change to the Reports tab. If you expand the tree e. Up until now, of course, no reports have been created for your practice project! In the Select report type field, select the entry Terminal diagram.
For this entry to be displayed, you must either enlarge the dialog or scroll through the entries using the scrollbar. Using this dialog, you can determine filter and sorting settings for the pages to be output. For your project, however, this is not required. Here you can specify how report pages will be sorted into the existing page structure. In the Page name field enter 10 to assign the page in witch the report will be placed.
Now expand the tree on the left side. Select the Pages layer and select the menu item Expand from the popup menu. Click [Close]. In the Page navigator, you now see the new page. You may first have to expand the tree and enlarge the window of the Page navigator before be- ing able to see the new page 10 with the description Terminal diagram : X1.
Note: A Page description like Terminal diagram : X1 is created if, for instance, the check box Automatic page description is checked in the Terminal diagram Total dialog. See also the illustration of the dialog in the action just completed. By deactivating the Automatic page description check box, you also have the option of entering your own description for each re- port page.
Open the page by double-clicking on it, and look at the terminal diagram in the graphical editor. Performing Settings for Parts Lists Before generating the parts lists, you must first set a special setting. Otherwise, parts entered on the cable definition line will not be taken into account during output of the parts list. Printing Other Report Pages Repeat the action described in the first section of this chapter for the reports Cable diagram, Parts list, and Table of contents.
On each report, select the cor- responding report type from the Select report dialog. For the other report pages, no new identifiers need to be assigned. For in- stance, you do not need to enter new identifiers in the Cable diagram To- tal dialog, but rather can apply an existing structure from the Page naviga- tor field. To do this, expand the tree structure in this field and select the report page 10 terminal diagram. For the Page name, the next free page is suggested.
Instead of “11”, enter the page number 20 into the Page name field. The different reports are sorted in alphabetically ascending order Cable diagram, Parts list, Table of contents, Terminal diagram. The yellow icon is used to mark all report types which represent overviews e. The orange icon characterizes function-relevant report types e. The level below that, marked in the tree with a yellow or orange icon with an opened drawer or is called a “report block” or just a “block”.
All report pages belonging to a particular element e. In your current practice project, there is only one report block for each re- port. If, on the other hand, there were two terminal strips X1 and X2 in the schematic, then, for instance, the terminal diagram pages for terminal strip X1 would make up their own block, just as the terminal diagram pages for terminal strip X2. The pages produced are shown on the lowest level in the tree. They have the same icon as in the Page navigator.
Quit the dialog using [Close], and look at the changed structure of your practice project in the expanded Page navigator. Example: For instance, the enlarged view of the table of contents page 5 Table of contents would look like this in the graphical editor. With the generation of report pages, the creation and editing of your prac- tice project is finished for now. In the following chapters, we will cover some additional topics, such as creating and inserting macros and searching pro- ject data.
Then you will update the reports in your project using report tem- plates. If you like, you can now print your project pages out. To do this, read the chapter “Printing a Project” on page Naturally, you can also wait until later to print the project pages, for instance at the end of the sequence of chapters.
In the fol- lowing sections, for instance, you will create a window macro and then in- sert it. Creating and inserting macros of other types, such as page and sym- bol macros, is done in a similar manner. What you Need to Know in Advance What are macros? Creating macros is helpful because you do not have recreate cut- outs every time a routine operation comes up.
What is a window macro? A window macro is an arbitrary area of a page. All objects whose insertion points are inside this area are stored in the window macro. Creating a Window Macro 1. Position the cursor in the upper right corner of the schematic e. In the Directory field, the preset default directory for macros is displayed. In the Description field, enter Conveyor belt drive as the descrip- tion for the macro.
The text entered here is displayed in a comments field when inserting macros and simplifies the selection for you. The macro is saved in the specified di- rectory under the name Drive. Inserting a Window Macro Before you insert the macro that you just saved again, first create another schematic page of the type Schematic multi-line.
Insert the macro on this sample page opened in the graphical editor. Select the Preview check box. Position the macro at an arbitrary position in the schematic and click the left mouse button to place it. In this dialog you define the manner in which devices are to be renumbered on insertion.
Select the Number option. This causes the devices inserted by the macro to be numbered automatically online. For the counter of a DT, this takes the next free counter for each identifier into account. Since the macro is still hanging on the mouse pointer, you could insert the macro again. Example: For instance, on the example page 4 Macro page , the window macro Drive inserted there might look like this in the graphical editor. As usual when inserting page macros, this creates a new pro- ject page.
Finding and Replacing Identifiers While editing a project, it is often necessary to search the project for par- ticular project data in order to change it. In the following chapter, we will show you how to search your practice project for a certain DT and a certain text and how you can then edit these objects. If the settings for your dialog don’t match those of the figure shown below, you still need to perform steps 3 through 6. Otherwise, you can click [OK] immediately.
In the Search in group box you can specify the objects in which you would like to search for the term. In the Search location group box, you can exclude certain page types from the search.
You also have the option in this dialog of entering the results of a search into one of two possible results lists. Select the List of results 1 option. All fuses in the project are listed in the dialog in tabular form. If you cannot see all the entries, drag the dialog to enlarge it and adjust the width of the individual columns if necessary.

These details are covered in our electtric, where you can also find help with your own eplan electric p8 manual free and company-specific tasks.
You should defi- nitely take part in our training program in order to make the best use of the functionality and possibilities of the system. In the program itself, we provide you with an extensive online help sys- tem. In addition to conceptual information and dialog descriptions, here you will also find gree by eplan electric p8 manual free instructions for most program functions.
The “Proceed as follows” section of the operating information gives you step by step instructions for using the program.
Once you have started the program and require information on a particular dialog, you can then call up the appropriate help by simply pressing the [F1] key. We hope that the beginner’s manual will give you a thorough insight into the many different options and features of your EPLAN software.
Tip: Useful tips to facilitate your interaction with the program are presented after this image. Example: Examples are highlighted by this symbol. Manuaal order to find a particular program function, the menus and options shown in a menu path must be selected in the sequence shown. So that you can successfully follow the instructions, we assume that you have already installed EPLAN and have the required software protection dongle and license. While writing this guide, we used the fully licensed program with its entire scope of functionality.
If you have not licensed all the modules, this docu- mentation or some figures in this documentation may possibly go be- yond the scope of functionality of the software you have purchased, that is, functions are also described which may not be available to you.
The user interface of your EPLAN application may differ from the figures presented here if, in the Select scope of menu dialog, you selected the Advanced or Expert user fref when you started the program.
That is the mode we used when creating this manual. All settings can be made in a central location in the program in the Options menu under the menu item Settings. For the sample project, eplan electric p8 manual free almost exclusively used the default settings of the project template being used. Don’t change these settings while working with the sample project; otherwise you may see different results. Since a list of the different call-up options would make this guide much larger, we usually use the mouse controls in the action instructions.
During program installation, a program icon is created on the Windows Eplan electric p8 manual free. Here, you specify the user mode in which you would like to define the displayed scope of the menu.
In the Select scope of menu dialog, select Expert. Click [OK]. In this informational dialog, which is automatically shown every time you start the program, you fere shown useful information fgee program functions.
Deselect the Show tips at startup check box if you do not wish this dialog to appear every time the program is started. Click on [Close] to close the Tip of the day. Before you create a project, you will first see a little more information about the user interface in the next chapter.
Note: In the Select scope of menu dialog, if you activated the Do not show this dialog again check box, this dialog will ссылка longer be shown when you start EPLAN, and the currently specified menu scope will be used. You will also learn how to change the interface easily. Be- sides various other interface elements, you see the Page navigator and eplan electric p8 manual free Graphical preview on eplan electric p8 manual free left side of the main window.
When you first start the program, these two windows are empty. The area on the right side with the background image will be used later as a working area for the opened pages. The main window is the entire working area of the program; its size and position can be changed.
For many other interface elements e. You can attach “dock” these ele- ments to the window edges inside the main window. What is the Page navigator? You can choose between two representation types. In the tree view, the eplan electric p8 manual free are displayed hierarchically by page type and iden- tifier such as higher-level function, mounting location, etc.
In the list view, this information is shown arranged in a table. You can switch be- tween the two views by clicking on the corresponding tab. In the Page navigator, you can edit the pages of one project, for instance, copy pages, eplan electric p8 manual free them, or change page properties. Multiple pages from different projects eplan electric p8 manual free not be edited at one time.
Tip: To show and hide the Page navigator quickly, you can use the [F12] key. What is the Graphical preview? The Graphical preview is a preview window for the minimized display of highlighted pages, symbols, image files, macros, forms, etc.
For exam- ple, if you have highlighted one or several pages in the page navigator, they will be displayed in a minimized window in the Graphical preview.
