Provision of data

Use item data across processes

Standardized data is used in engineering tools and beyond. For example, it can be used in e-shops or catalogs. The item data is also useful for mechanical design, e.g., for imaging dimensions and connections.

Data for a wide range of applications

Item data, including commercial and technical features, is available via the Eplan Data Portal. MCAD-relevant information, such as DXF data, is also available. In conjunction with the PARTcommunity, manufacturers also provide their CAD data for direct download. The ECLASS-standardized component data from Phoenix Contact can be downloaded in BMEcat format from the company’s website.

Your advantages for greater efficiency:

  • Optimally coordinated engineering and manufacturing solutions

  • Save time with access to standardized device data in the Eplan Data Portal

  • Access CAD data in various formats with PARTcommunity

  • Download BMEcat data directly from the company website

Here we focus on end-to-end digitisation and consistent data provision in enclosure construction.
