Optimized Engineering Process, consistent object orientation!

Noticeably shorten your engineering process with automated function sequences. The key: standardized material data that was classified, for example, with ECLASS ADVANCED. This enables users of the ProPlan CAE solution to generate symbols quickly and simply. A number of symbol trays are also provided.
ProPlan's auto-routing function offers you the latest generation of engineering. Using x, y and z coordinates as a basis, the 3D auto-routing function enables wiring to be routed automatically, taking cabinet doors and other depth dimensions into account. The optimization of your wiring lengths also takes into account whether cable ducts are to be used or not.
Users benefi t from the simple and dynamic generation of documents such as parts lists, PLC lists, cross-reference lists, EQID labels, terminal plans, as well as cable and wiring plans.

ProPlan: Integrated in the AmpereSoft Toolsystem

ProPlan features its own multi-lingual database. This makes it possible to activate and deactivate translation functions selectively. These can cover all languages, even those with Cyrillic letters. The database can output files and, after processing by a translation service provider for example, read them back in.
The project management function makes it possible to structure the projects at any level and enables them to function in accordance with DIN EN 81346-1. This complete overview of the project hierarchy in a tree structure with a direct link to the relevant plan types speeds up the planning process. Plan your documentation for power station construction and off shore plants without any problems in accordance with RDS-PP.

The so-called ProjectExplorer represents the core of ProPlan. You use this to manage all your materials and all other information that you require for the engineering. Comprehensive mass maintenance and copy options support you in the rapid engineering of your plant. For example, you can create several hundred meters of cable, switches, contactors etc. and can start engineering immediately. If the EQID or cable numbers have already been provided by the customer, you can read in these EQIDs via one of the many interfaces available.

Interfaces, no compromises!

We have been a driving force in the area of open and standardized interfaces and off er you a range of possibilities in the field of electrical engineering using our own scripting. Whether it's DXF, DWG, PDF, BMP, JPG, TIF, EXCEL, BMEcat on the one hand or the connection of other systems via XML / Automation-ML on the other: Nothing now stands in the way of you connecting to automation portals or ERP solutions such as SAP, ProAlpha or other software systems. A lot can be carried out by drag and drop.

All material data also provides the basis for the feature enhancements TemperatureCalculator, QuotationAssistant and various product configurators belonging to the ToolSystem. Preconfigured interfaces enable you to also exchange the data here trouble-free. You can thus automatically carry out the legally required temperature calculation of your switchgear assembly up to 1,600A, complete the individual verification at the same time and also determine the price of your engineering. In addition to the already mentioned interfaces, QuotationAssistant also offers the possibility to read in the data in a GAEB format and also output it. The creation of public tenders thus becomes child's play.

AmpereSoft RoutingAssistant 2048px

AmpereSoft RoutingAssistant - cost-saving for exact wire length calculation

Ever wanted to assemble wires but your CAE system doesn't provide a suitable routing system for calculating wire lengths and a transfer format for the assembly machine?

The parts and wiring list from your CAE system are read into Ampere Soft RoutingAssistant via a confi gurable import interface.

With the ECLASS ADVANCED data of the used equipment, you generate the symbols in a twinkling of the eye and easily create the fill assembly plan.

You can carry out the routing at the click of a button, optimize the wire routing and add any missing connections (even without a circuit diagram! ). You can naturally add, edit and also automatically calculate the wire properties (wire color, wire cross section etc.) before routing, based on the data of the circuit diagram, the technical features of the components used and a configurable set of rules.

AmpereSoft RoutingAssistant is available as an add-on for your existing AmpereSoft ProPlan license or as a "stand-alone solution" alongside your existing CAE system.

The AmpereSoft ToolDataManager

The cross-project search and maintenance tool for working with AmpereSoft ProPlan.

- Find the required AmpereSoft ProPlan project in your directory structures (local / network) quickly and easily by using project attributes (fixed texts), key texts, plan texts, symbol names and material attributes.
- Maintain attributes, or symbols and material for all projects or specific ones.
- Use the effective mass management tool for importing both materials and symbols, as well as for archiving, compressing and outputing the selected ProPlan projects.
- Use the simple drag and drop functionality to open a ProPlan project or create a new one. If required, simply use an existing project as a sample for the new project.

Consistency in the process
with the AmpereSoft ToolSystem

ProPlan is the pre-tested tool for professional datail engineering. The integration into the ToolSystem allows the smooth transfer of the projects from the configuration and costing as well as the use of the project data for automated production. These include e.g. the autorouting for the cable assembly and the data transfer to drilling machines.
