February 7, 2012 – Munich, Germany and Westford, MA, USA – Zuken today announced the release of a new version of its  E³.WireWorks software – E³.WireWorks Unified – which is now a full part of Zuken’s complete  E³.series solution.

E³.WireWorks Unified now uses native E³.series files and provides users with access to modules that were previously only available in E³.series. E³.WireWorks users join Zuken’s E³.series global license community of more than 25,000 users.

E³.WireWorks is the E³.series edition of Zuken’s complete solution for schematic, cable, panel and fluid systems design, specially configured for seamless flow with SolidWorks®.

Dominic Locas, Fortress Technology says: "The design automation features and flexible application programming interface were key reasons we chose E³.WireWorks, and we’ve now achieved significant time savings by automating many of the drawing functions."

Expanded links to SolidWorks

Closer ties to SolidWorks include SolidWorks Enterprise PDM integration for bill of material management, completing the existing design workflow and lifecycle control capabilities. Additionally, fluid schematics created in E³.WireWorks can now be imported to SolidWorks via the P&ID import utility found in routing.

Navigation has been improved through more intuitive menus to achieve reduced click rates, plus a fresher user interface.



Building on pedigree

This new version of E³.WireWorks includes the significant time saving and efficiency developments incorporated into the  E³.series 2011 release, such as:

  • Advanced variant management in  E³.panel to create different variant panel layouts within the same design.
  • Improved connector handling with functions such as supporting bulkhead connectors, connectors with pins within pins, and connectors with several plug sides, and automatic connector pin terminal and wire seal selection.
  • Simplified signal management by classifying signals into groups, allowing users to connect signals with different names to a common point in the design.

Expanded module support improves productivity

As part of the full E³.series suite, E³.WireWorks users can now add any of the modules within the E³.series tool chest. These include:

  • E³.topology – for topology and functional design creation; offering detailed early planning and design leading to a reduction in design time and iterations.
  • E³.RevisionManagement – compare, report and track the design of wiring, harnesses, cable assemblies and control panels, verifying compliance with industry standards.
  • Select Additional Parts utility – a free tool allowing designs that need additional parts (often non-drawn items such as screws and fixings) to be brought into the E³.WireWorks project through a selection dialog box.

E³.WireWorks customers on a maintenance contract will be entitled to this upgrade.
