New service enables machine users to upload, manage and share projects in the cloud
As part of its cloud services, Eplan is presenting a new service for cross-project collaboration – Eplan eManage – which lets users upload Eplan Platform projects into the cloud environment and share and work on them there. The free version was launched in mid-March, while an expanded, paid version will follow in August 2021.
“EPLAN eManage makes it easy to upload, manage and share projects in the cloud,” states Eplan. “Since today’s ecosystem of industrial automation is characterised by many media discontinuities when processing and transferring documentation, the advantages of this system are clear: the EPLAN Platform systems in connection with this new cloud service will network control cabinet manufacturers and panel builders, OEMs and system integrators, as well as machine and plant system operators.”
They all work together in a central project that can be synchronised on the EPLAN Platform via eManage in roundtrip engineering. Clear access rights and role assignments ensure data security and provide flexibility for project access.
Users of EPLAN Electric P8 and EPLAN Pro Panel are said to be already benefiting from these integrated processes whereby they can upload their projects into the cloud and transfer them back to the EPLAN Platform for further processing.
