If menu items are present in the popup menu of a field which go beyond the standard functions, you can see that from a “popup menu button”. This button is located above the corresponding field. Toolbars As standard, the toolbars are located below the menu bar and consist of buttons allowing you to directly call up the most important EPLAN functions. Here, too, you do not initially have all the buttons available.
Example: The following figure shows you the Standard toolbar for an opened project. When you point the mouse at a menu item or a button in a toolbar, a brief informative text relating to the action called by this command is displayed here. If you have the cursor in an opened page, the status bar shows you information about the cursor position, grid, and logical status, along with data about the currently selected element, in some cases.
On: 0. This page is a Logic page page type: Schematic multi-line on a scale. Window size adjustment The ability to modify the size of the EPLAN main window and also other dialogs is indicated by three diagonal lines in the lower right-hand corner of the window.
In the maximized view of the main window, the diagonal lines are not shown. To show them, the window must be reduced in size, for instance using the button. Changing the User Interface You can change the view of the user interface to fit your own work habits. Many dialogs, e. Docking and undocking control elements Some user interface control elements, such as the menu bar, the toolbars or various windows like the Page Navigator, can be positioned inside or outside of the EPLAN main window.
Next click the title bar of the Page navigator with the left mouse button and keep the button pressed. Press [Ctrl] to avoid docking, and pull the Page navigator to a free position on the Windows Desktop. Repeat this procedure for additional control elements. To do this for a toolbar or the menu bar, click on a “free” spot within the bar.
Practice docking control elements, too. To do this, click the title bar of the desired undocked control element e. You can recognize this by the border of the element being displayed as a thin line. This will be a horizontal or vertical line, depending on whether you wish to position the control element at the top, bottom, left, or right. You can recognize the orientation from the thinly drawn preview rectangle. When the program is exited, EPLAN notes the last settings of these elements docked, undocked, size, position and restores them the next time the program is started.
Example: The following illustration shows the EPLAN user interface reconfigured by docking and undocking control elements. Moreover, another toolbar “Symbols” has been hidden and two more moved around inside the main window “Graphics” and “Connection symbols”. To avoid unnecessarily reducing the size of your EPLAN user interface, you have the option of hiding the toolbars you don’t need.
Click the right mouse button on a free area in the menu bar or toolbar. Displayed toolbars are marked with a preceding checkmark. Select the Standard toolbar, for instance, and click the check box in front of the toolbar name. Repeat the procedure and deactivate some more toolbars. Practice unhiding toolbars, too. To do this, call up the popup menu again and click on the name of a hidden toolbar e. Tip: For the hiding and displaying of toolbars, you also have the Customize dialog available.
You can also use this dialog to customize and extend the predefined toolbars and create your own toolbars. Selecting workspaces Once you have changed the EPLAN user interface to suit your needs, you can save this arrangement as a “workspace. We provide you with a few predefined workspaces which you can use as templates for your own workspaces. From the Scheme drop-down list, select the entry Connections as an example of a workspace. Click [OK].
The interface changes you made will disappear. Besides the Page navigator, the main window now also contains the two windows Potentials and Connections.
In these special navigators, all the potentials and connections of a project are shown. Restoring the original view 1. From the Scheme drop-down list, select the entry Default. EPLAN now shows the view displayed when it first started up. Using this action, you can reset an EPLAN user interface that you may have changed back to the original state.
You can find more detailed information about the user interface — for instance, how you can define your own workspaces — in the EPLAN online help. What you Need to Know in Advance What is a project? In EPLAN, schematics and attached documents such as lists and overviews are created as pages within projects. A project consists of a collection of different types of documents.
Projects are stored and organized in a special database — the “project management”. What is a project structure? In EPLAN, “Project structure” means the combination of all identifier structures used in the project for objects, pages, devices, and functions. All objects in a project pages, devices, and functions must be identified and placed in a hierarchical structure within the project. In a hierarchically arranged project structure, for instance, you can store and find pages and devices more easily.
The identifiers for project structure are called “structure identifiers”. What is a project template? In order to create a new project, you always need a template.
When using the project template, you create a project in which some settings are already predefined. For instance, the structure of page identifiers and device tags are stored in a project template. Using the Project wizard, even as a beginner you can very quickly and simply create a project containing a cover sheet and a schematic page.
In the dialog of the wizard — the Create project dialog — you can enter all the principal data for a new project step by step.
In the Project name field on the first tab, enter the name for your first project. Select a Template for the project. To do this, click the [ If you don’t select a project template here, you will not be able to perform any more steps in the Project wizard. In the Open dialog, select the project template Inch Template. Click [Open]. Select a storage location for the project.
By default, your projects are managed in the Projects directory in a “company folder” created during installation Company Code identifier ; in the illustration, this is the CompanyCode folder. Select this “company folder” and click on [Make New Folder]. Click [Finish]. The Project wizard copies the template into the new project. This procedure may take some time. The projects form the first level in the tree. Click on the plus sign in front of the project name in the tree view. You have just created a project using the Project wizard, which automatically has two pages.
For IEC user, the selected project template enables hierarchically arranged structures for all objects in the project. It has a project structure already determined.
Structure identifiers for the “higher-level function” and the “mounting location” are used to identify pages and devices. In the next chapter, you will learn how to assign structure identifiers to the automatically generated pages. There, you will also read how to open and create pages. This Project structure is not often used in North America. Using the Schematic tab, you can also determine structure identifiers for the first schematic page.
In this chapter, you will learn how to open pages. You will also edit the page properties of the existing pages and create a new page. A project generally consists of pages of different types. The page types help structure a project. The page type is generally assigned when the page is created, but it can also be changed later.
The title page or cover sheet is usually the first page of a project. What is a multi-line schematic page? A multi-line schematic page is a page for which the schematic documentation has multi-line symbols. It has special editing capabilities for the creation and analysis of schematic diagrams.
For instance, symbols inserted are automatically connected with one another. What is a graphical editor? A graphical editor is the part of the program you use to create and edit schematics and mechanical drawings. It is started when you open a page. Besides the window in which the page is displayed, the menu bar also has numerous program functions such as the Insert menu available for graphical editing.
The window is dockable and has its own standard Windows buttons. In a “maximized” view, the window of the editor fits into the main window in such a way that the title bar is integrated into the menu bar of the main window see also the next illustration.
In the “minimized” view, the window has its own title bar. In the tree view of the Page navigator, select page 1. The cover sheet of the project is shown. The page name is displayed not only in the title bar of the main window, but also as a tab under the graphic. In the Page navigator, you can recognize the opened page from the fact that the page name 1 is now in bold. Tip: To open a page selected in the Page navigator, you can also double-click on the page or press the [Enter] key.
This will automatically close the first page and display the empty schematic in the graphical editor. For instance, select page 1 again, then from the popup menu of the Page navigator select the menu item Open in new window. EPLAN opens the page in another window of the graphical editor.
For every opened page, a tab is shown below the graphical editor window. You can quickly switch between pages by clicking these tabs. Editing Page Properties For the practice project, you selected a project template with no predefined identifier structures. In the following section, we describe how you can assign the identifier by editing the page properties, used forms and plot frames. In the tree view of the Page navigator, select the cover sheet page 1.
The Graphical page type or the model view, on the other hand, are purely graphical non-logi- cal pages that initially do not contain logical information. EPLAN also makes a distinction between pages that can be edited interactive pages and pages that are generated automatic pages. The Panel layout page type is an example of an interactive page and the Terminal diagram page type is an example of a generated automatic page.
The exception is that there is no page type in the layout space. The layout space is the basis of the 3D representation of enclosures or other components used for the panel lay- out; here it only provides a view of the 3D data and its further processing. You access the popup menu functions via the right mouse button or the button in the page navigator. Page menu and page navigator Fig.
The procedure is the same when using the popup menu, except that in this case you select the new menu entry. The new pAge dialog then opens. New page dialog There are now two ways to integrate the new page into an existing page structure. You can deine the full page name in the Full page name ield.
You can either manually change the existing entry or enter a completely new value with a preix for the structure identi- ier. Alternatively, you can use the button to call up the Full pAge nAMe dialog. EPLAN opens the Full pAge nAMe dialog, whereby every identiier has its own input ield and own selection button, which can be used to branch to the selection dialog for the selected identiier.
Clicking oK applies the selected identiiers. EPLAN saves new identiiers in the order deined in the settings. There are no other query dialogs. If all settings and entries have been entered in the new pAge dialog and any missing structure identiiers have been created, the dialog can be closed.
EPLAN will create the new page and then show it in the page navi- gator in the chosen structure. This is nothing new. The open in new window menu item in the page navigator popup menu is more interesting and use- ful. This menu item allows you to open several pages or even open Fig. Opening in new The procedure is simple. In the window page navigator, you select the page or pages it is possible to open several pages at once , right click to open the popup menu and select open in new window.
EPLAN then opens all selected pages. Open in new window function Fig. With three pages, the sequence starts at page 1 followed by page 2, page 3, back to page 1, etc. To close open pages, simply select the pages in the page navigator and in the pAge menu, select close. Window menu 4.
To create a new page that uses the content of an existing page, you need to copy one or more pages. EPLAN then draws a thick gray border around the page to show it is selected. Copying pages within a project and across projects Fig. EPLAN always suggests the highest free page name available in this structure.
Once all entries are correct, you click oK to apply the page. Ater selecting the desired setting, you exit the dialog by clicking oK. EPLAN then copies the source page, generates a new target page, and sorts it into the page structure. Before actually overwriting pages EPLAN displays a prompt, which must be conirmed by clicking yes copy action continues or no copy action is canceled and EPLAN opens the page navigator once more.
Again the following applies when copying pages: Without asking for conirmation, EPLAN automatically sorts new identiiers into the existing structure alphabetically or at the end, depending on the setting. They can be resorted later in structure identiier management. You can, of course, copy more than one page. Ater you make all desired entries and conirm any subsequent dia- logs, these pages are inserted into the EPLAN project in the selected structure.
These two commands always relate to the selected pages. All page-related commands, i. Since you can open and edit several projects at once in the EPLAN page navigator, it is very useful to have a function that lets you conveniently copy pages from one project to another. As already mentioned, a project does not need to be open in the page navigator in order to copy pages from it.
The lower area of the copy pAges dialog shows additional information about the selected page. A preview for the selected pages can also be activated. The right ield in the copy pAges dialog is ixed and always indicates the current project. It cannot be changed. You can use the button to select and open any other project. Initially, only projects currently open in the page navigator are listed. In this dialog, you can select and open one or more projects to be used in the project selection dialog.
First you select the project s , then click open to add the selected project s to the pro- ject selection dialog. When you need to copy many subpages and convert them to main pages, for example. Any follow-up dialogs, such as the insertion Mode dialog, must be conirmed as required.
This completes the copying of pages from external projects. You can now copy pages from other projects. If this is not required, you can exit the copy pAges dialog with the close button. EPLAN closes the dialog and all temporarily opened projects and returns to graphical editing of the currently opened project. This page name can include alphanumeric characters. The page name number is renamed using the renAMe pAge menu item.
In the page navigator, you can also simply select the page and press the F2 key. EPLAN then lets you change the page name number without directly opening the page properties of this page. Pressing enter saves the changed page name number.
Renaming the page name number Fig. Sometimes you need to delete them. You are already familiar with the procedure. The pages to be deleted are selected in the page navigator and then deleted using the Delete function in the page navigator popup menu or by pressing the del key. Before the actual deletion, EPLAN displays a delete pAges dialog with a warning mes- sage asking if the page s should actually be deleted.
NOTE: The following is very important and should be noted when deleting pages. It makes a diference how pages are selected in thepage navigator. Only these four pages will be deleted. In Fig. Unintentional deletion of pages is usually noticed immediately, since the page navigator is updated ater a deletion and the missing pages, higher-level functions, or locations are or should be immediately obvious.
NOTE: If the project was closed in the interim, the deleted pages are irre- trievably lost! This prevents accidental deletion of entire projects from the page navigator popup menu. It closes open pages. The close function is accessible in the pAge menu and also via the page navigator popup menu. It is possible to select several open pages in the page navigator and close them all at once.
The close function only closes the project page s and not the project, not even if it is selected. The Full page name can be changed for example, you could change the page number from 2 to 3, which will move the page or modify the Page description. These properties can all be edited when they are not grayed out. New properties are added via the button. Here you can select the desired properties multiple selections are possible and apply them in the Page properties display by clicking the oK button.
If several pages are selected in the page navigator and the popup menu is then used to call the properties function, then the properties of all selected pages can be edited in a single step. Edit the properties of multiple pages Fig. Examples would be the scale or grid of the pages. When all entries are complete, you can exit the pAge properties dialog by clicking oK. EPLAN saves all entries and then closes the dialog.
Double-clicking an empty area will not open the page properties. To do so, you irst create a ilter scheme and then activate the quick entry column. You only have to set one, like here in the Page type. You simply activate the required value, here the to-be-iltered page type. This can still be used to ilter search results or to ind and ilter speciic structure identiiers. The main area is the working area for editing the schematic the graphical editor.
A number of dialogs can be associated with the main area. These range from the page navigator to user-deined toolbars. The graphical editor is not restricted to a single representation. The familiar idea of work- spaces can be used to rapidly switch the entire EPLAN user interface from one represen- tation to another, including all the associated dialogs, toolbars, etc. The most important function of the title bar is the display of the cur- rently open project name.
This display can be customized by the user. The information logic shows the page type and the scale of this page. The example shows an open logical page at a scale of This does not apply to all functions, but looking at the status bar can be a great help for some EPLAN actions. The last characters in the status bar have the following meaning: The hash means that the project contains connections that have not been updated.
This is easy to remember and the command then only requires a single keystroke. The current system messages can then be read here.
There are diferent points of view: the graphical system and the logical systems for the areas of electrical engineering, luid power and process engineering. This means that when the page scale changes, the page is enlarged upwards and to the right. These positions are always measured from the original element and its origin usually the so-called insertion point in diferent directions. In this case these are negative values, since the property is Fig. The grid is visually displayed with small dots.
These grid settings can then be selected in the Fig. They can all be assigned to a keyboard shortcut as well. This function enables or disables Snap to grid. When Snap to grid is enabled, elements can only be placed on the activated grid.
Intermediate positions or free placement are not possible. When the grid snap is switched of, then all elements can be freely placed this also applies to logic elements such as symbols. This Snap to grid function allows you to align diferent elements outside the grid to the currently set grid.
The design mode allows you to align graphical elements to speciic points, i. If the design mode is enabled, irst you select the action, Move for example, and then you select the object and deine its starting and end points. Then use the mouse to pull a window around the misaligned elements. The window can be pulled in any direction. When inished all elements are contained in the window , release the mouse button and EPLAN will align all elements that are inside the window to the grid.
It also works the other way around. First select the object s you want to align and then click the button. EPLAN will then align the selected objects to the set grid. These two features relate to the cursor position. If the use grApHicAl coordinAtes option is deactivated, then it is only possible to enter integer values, such as 1, 3 or If the use grApHicAl coordinAtes option is activated, then it is also possible to enter Increment input real numbers such as 1.
Coordinate input Fig. The X and Y positions can be directly entered in this dialog. NOTE: The mouse should not be used here because it would probably shit the position where you want to jump. During coordinate input, it is also possible to switch between the diferent coordinate systems graphic, electrical engineering, luid power and process engineering.
The relAtiVe coordinAte input function is accessed via the options menu. This means that you could start drawing a new line and then call the relative coordinate input. In the simplest case, you could enter the length of the line, and EPLAN would use this length, place the cursor in the position and terminate the drawing of the line. In contrast to the static coordinate input, the input here is always relative to the current cursor position. You should take this into consideration when drawing.
In order to redeine the base point, for example, to calculate the horizontal values from the center of the circle, you place the cursor on the center, press the o key and then press enter. All positions are immediately calculated using this new base point and displayed in the status bar.
You can reset the base point shit using the o key or you can simply change pages. EPLAN also ofers true to scale drawings with many dimension- ing possibilities and many additional well-known CAD functions, such as stretching, trim- ming modifying the length and grouping of elements.
This will not be explained in detail here because the calls and the functions are very simple and easy to understand. If you require 1 millimeter in- crements, then you should set the grid for this page to 1 1 millimeter , either by using the buttons of the grid settings or directly in the page properties i.
Now there are three options. Option 1: You draw rectangle using the mouse or the keyboard by counting grid in- crements. In addition to the pure graphical functions, such as drawing a rectangle or circle, EPLAN also lets you edit these graphical objects later.
Such editing could include the following: changing the length of graphical elements, cutting out parts of graphical elements, round- ing corners and much more.
Then, you have to deine the center of rotation around which the object is to be rotated. Now you enter the rotation angle directly in the input box and conirm with enter. EPLAN has rotated the object. You can also rotate pure symbols components. But you can only use the rotation angles that already exist as a symbol variant.
Then you select the object to be mirrored. You can also mirror pure symbols components. But you can only use the mirroring angles that already exist as a symbol variant. You must enter a decimal point in the scaling factor for it to work. Then, you select the right-hand section of the rectangle in this example with a window.
EPLAN places round markers in the corners and waits for you to deine the starting point of the stretch. NOTE: Using cutof for grouped objects is not quite the same.
If you want to cut sections of grouped objects, you have to keep the SHIFT key pressed and then cut the relevant section. Ater launching the function, you can click the desired corner and deine the illet radius in the input box. Chamfer does not illet corners, it gives them a sloping edge. EPLAN uses these parameters ater you press enter or let-click the object. The same chamfer setting can be applied imme- diately to the next corner. Every element must be manually adjusted to its new size via the properties dialog, or when multiple elements are selected, the elements that are not to be scaled must be manually deselected.
You use the mouse to select all elements that belong together and then call up the group command from the menu or alternatively use the g key. You simply select one of the grouped ele- ments EPLAN automatically selects all the elements in the group. EPLAN removes the grouping and all elements are once more individually accessible.
Individual elements within a grouping can also be edited independently. Press and hold the sHiFt key, and then double-click the desired object within the group. The remaining group objects are not afected. In addition to inserting and drawing new elements, you can also copy and delete ele- ments. In this menu, you can call up the func- tions copy, MoVe, etc. To use the functions on ele- ments, you have to irst select an element let mouse click and then select the function.
EPLAN ofers accurately scaled dimensioning, depending on the page scale that is set. Dimensioning types include, for example, continued dimension and radius dimension. The procedure for dimensioning elements is just as simple as drawing the elements themselves. The various dimensioning methods will be illustrated with an example. This allows EPLAN to start precisely at the ends or the midpoints of elements, without you having to tediously try to reach the ends of a line, for example.
This usually cannot be done precisely. In this example, a rectangle will be dimensioned. EPLAN sets this point as the start of the dimensioning. For the dimensioning itself, there are a number of properties that can be called by double- clicking the dimension itself.
The Format tab is where you deine the settings for dimension values, etc. This does not afect the dimension lines. No numbering or coding system is used, so that the user can always see what the text is and does not need to look up a number in a text ile to know which text entry the number refers to.
Normal texts are texts that have no further functionality except their visual display. Translation of this type of text is possible without problems. Normal text should usually only be used to place text that does not need to be used in any other way, for example to provide extra information in a black box.
It is only possible to later change normal free text to function text by activating the pAtH Function text selection box. Path function texts should generally be used to automatically ill speciic devices with function text, for example based on the page path. Automatic path function text Fig. It is therefore advantageous to always work with path function texts, since subsequent conversion from normal texts to path function texts is possible, but requires unnecessary extra work.
If path function texts are gener- ally to be used, the keyboard shortcut for free text should be redeined to path function text.
In this case, the keyboard shortcut for normal free text should be set to a diferent keyboard shortcut. Path function texts.
But this might not be desired, for reasons of space or because the path function text is to apply equally to several devices. This way, it will not matter whether the insertion point is directly below the device or not. Reference Handbook, 1st edition. About the Author. Close Albania. China Taiwan. Czech Republic.

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 being able to see the new page 10 with the description Terminal diagram : X1.
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 report 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. Click the Settings button. Select the Parts list menu item. Select the Cable part check box. Now continue with the output of the other report pages. 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 corresponding report type from the Select report dialog.
For instance, you do not need to enter new identifiers in the Cable diagram Total dialog, but rather can apply an existing structure from the Page navigator 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 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 report. 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. Open the newly generated pages and look at these pages in the graphical editor.
With the generation of report pages, the creation and editing of your practice project is finished for now. In the following chapters, we will cover some additional topics, such as creating and inserting macros and searching project data.
Then you will update the reports in your project using report templates. 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 following sections, for instance, you will create a window macro and then insert it.
Creating and inserting macros of other types, such as page and symbol 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 cutouts 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. Click with the left mouse button again e. In the Directory field, the preset default directory for macros is displayed. In the File name field, enter Drive as the name of the macro. In the Description field, enter Conveyor belt drive as the description 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 directory under the name Drive. Insert the macro on this sample page opened in the graphical editor. Select the Preview check box. Select the macro Drive. 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. The macro can be moved only horizontally from its original position.
The macro can only be moved vertically from its original position. As usual when inserting page macros, this creates a new project page. 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. Below the listed search results, EPLAN shows you a text field with the page on which each selected object is located. Tip: In the Search results dialog, if you select an object located on a project page, the Graphical preview shows the corresponding page. The position of the object is highlighted in the preview with concentric circles.
Replacing device tags 1. Select all entries in the Search results dialog. Remove the 1 in the Find what field and enter the value CB into the Replace with field. In the schematic, too, all selected devices are renamed.
For instance, you can use the menu item Go to graphic to jump from a selected object in the results list to the corresponding position in a project page. Using the menu item Edit in table, multiple selected objects can be edited together in a subsequent dialog. In this way, for instance, you could rename the DTs of the selected devices. Finding Text and Editing Search Entries Before starting a new search, first remove all the previous entries. Otherwise the search results will remain in this result list.
The Search results dialog is now empty again. In the Find what field here, enter the search term Conveyor belt. Select the second entry in the list. In the popup menu, select the menu item Properties or double-click. On the Text tab, the text Conveyor belt is already selected.
Enter the new text New drive here directly. Before you print out your whole project, you should first complete and update your reports. How you do this is described in the next chapter. You created a new page and added additional devices to the project using the inserted window macro.
For these changes to take effect in the project, you still have to complete and update the reports. Updating Reports 1. If you then look at the pages of your practice project, you will see that the overviews in the project Table of contents, Parts list have been updated. If you had made changes in the project to terminal strip X1 or cable CBL1 for instance, specifying a different function text, a new target, etc. For the two new devices terminal strip X2 and cable CBL2 an update of the previously generated report pages is not sufficient.
Instead, you must generate a terminal diagram for X2 and a corresponding cable diagram for CBL2. You could proceed as described in the chapter “Generating Reports” on page 98, and output new report pages in that way.
But EPLAN also provides you with the possibility of using existing reports to generate report templates. Then you can report on the entire project based on those templates. Since you already have reports with a terminal and cable diagram, use the latter procedure. Repeat this procedure for the report Cable diagram. Change to the Template tab. Select the Templates layer and select the menu item Expand from the popup menu. Now, if you select the template All under Cable diagram, for instance, the table on the right side will show the specified properties of this template.
Here you might change the Start page for your cable diagram pages. Generating Project Reports If you now report on the entire project, then reports are first generated from all existing report templates.
Depending on the size of the project, this process can take some time. After you have completed and updated the reports in this way, expand the tree view of your practice project in the Page navigator and look at the changed structure.

It will help you make necessary decisions. I would also like to sincerely thank my family, especially my wife Susanne. They have always been, and continue to be, very patient with me. I would also like to thank детальнее на этой странице of the readers who have made this book a success.
All feed- back, whether criticism or praise, has always been a strong motivator for me to revise this book. Furthermore, the book assumes that the user has all of the user rights in EPLAN and is logged in as the local administrator. Some of the settings used in this book, such as those for filters or schemes, differ from the standard EPLAN installation.
All of this additional data is available in the sample data. In addition, some custom, non-standard shortcut keys were also used. Eplan p8 electric manual free following text boxes are used to visually highlight notes, tips, etc.
This box provides additional information and tips. By design, EPLAN does not overwrite user-related master eplan p8 electric manual free because the user may have modified the original system master data and saved this under the original name assigned by EPLAN.
During installation, EPLAN does not recognize whether this data has been changed on purpose and would therefore simply replace it. Usually the user does not want this to happen. If a license has not yet been installed, a dialog prompting or requesting a eplan p8 electric manual free of the appropriate eplan p8 electric manual free is displayed before the program starts.
What combinations of letters and page names are allowed for subpages? How should paths be numbered: by page, by project or by struc- ture identifier?
The most important parameter in these eplan p8 electric manual free is the definition or sub- адрес страницы changing of the global plot frame for the project. A separate plot frame can be defined for every page in the page properties independently of the global plot frame setting.
The page settings always have priority over the global project settings. New entries addi- tion of symbol libraries are automatically stored in the project after the setting is saved. Settings for displaying translation lan- guages displaying translations in the project are also configured here. You also have to define a source language here. This helps to prevent operating errors, e. Any storage location can be selected using the button. The usual range of templates and basic eplan p8 electric manual free are available for selection.
NOTE: These fields cannot be changed later on. It is therefore very impor- tant to make sure you enter the correct data. After defining the above entries, you need to select a template.
This can be a project tem- plate or a basic project. You simply click the More button. You can select the relevant project type in the File type field. EPLAN then returns microsoft office 2007 enterprise 64 bit free the Create project перейти and imports the selected basic project or eplan p8 electric manual free template project into the Template field.
The new project is created from the selected basic project. This may take a while depend- ing on the hardware and the storage location server, local.
You do not necessarily need to edit these at the moment. This can be done later during project editing. The project proper- ties can now be adjusted or completely changed on the Properties, Structure etc. There is one limitation: The structure of the pages, located in the Structure tab, can no longer be changed grayed out. It is fixed because the page structure was defined in продолжить чтение basic project.
The project can now be edited. This makes it possible, like with terminals, to use the same designation several times PE railand the check run will not find any duplicate connection point designations. Click the Part number field and then use the button that appears to switch to parts man- agement. In parts management, you Fig. Parts management automatically closes after the part is applied. In contrast to simple part selection, this will offer only devices for selection that fit the exist- ing functions of the symbol in the project.
EPLAN data fields and external data fields are assigned in this scheme. 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 eplan p8 electric manual free. 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 Кряк logic pro x last version free напугать, 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 Eplan p8 electric manual free 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 здесь time.
In the PLC navigator, you select the eplan p8 electric manual free 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. EPLAN selects the corresponding objects.
