Zuken signed a partnership agreement with CADENAS, a leading provider of online component libraries, and ECAD-Port, a specialized provider for electrical components library services.
The three partners will provide online access to free, validated, high-quality electrical component data to users of Zuken’s E³.series electrical design tools. The agreement will extend the CADENAS offering of intelligent engineering data from more than 700 component manufactures through the addition of electrical content provided directly by OEM component manufacturers. The partnership is expected to rapidly grow the CADENAS library from its current number of 250 electrical, fluid and automation manufacturers. It will achieve these benefits for electrical designers:
–Users of Zuken’s E³.series ECAD environment will gain direct access to the CADENAS component portal where they can search for components and load the required parts directly into E³.series. This digital engineering data are enriched with intelligent information such as electronic symbols, connections points and technical product information.
–ECAD-Port will be available as a service provider to OEMs for content creation and attribute mapping services using both eCl@ss and E³.series formats.
–ECAD-Port will provide mapping assistance to all E³.series customers who operate an E³.database, offering specific attributes or content such as individual ERP number or customer specific symbols.
The initiative has already seen positive response from leading component manufacturers, with endorsements from HARTING, Weidmüller, Phoenix Contact, WAGO and TE Connectivity Technology Group. Comprehensive libraries from further industry leaders are under way.
