 What's included?

Dear student,

I welcome you to my first course in the series about EPLAN Pro Panel. In this course I have covered the essential topics / sections in EPLAN Pro Panel to get you going as soon as possible and while demonstrating also some real-world issues you might encounter when working in Pro Panel.

By the end of the course you will be ready to do the following on your own:

  • create new layout space
  • insert enclosures and accessories for the enclosures
  • insert and effectively work with cable ducts and mounting rails (including special rail for Siemens S7-1500 PLC)
  • isolate and add different parts of the enclosure for better efficiency
  • learn and use collision check function
  • learn and apply different placement and positioning options, change length, adopt length, place centered, change handle etc.
  • learn and apply mounting clearances for special devices such as for PLC, DC power supplies, frequency converters (VFD or VSD)
  • export model views and 2D panel layouts
  • generate and filter enclosure legend for example only for the enclosure door
  • learn about drilling views and drilling patterns
  • export drilling patterns to DXF and PDF and also integrate to your EPLAN project
  • and much more

I invite you to join the course and I wish you a lot of fun and success in mastering Eplan Pro Panel.
