E3.cable, electrical cable design software, is used for designing and documenting cable plans and harness layouts. Extending the functionality of E3.schematic, it enables individual conductors to be combined together in the design to form cables or harnesses. Shielding and twisted-pair structure can also be added to the cables and automatically shown in the schematic.
E3.cable is ideally suited for industries developing power and control harnesses for the automotive, off-highway and special purpose vehicle, and aerospace industries, or those developing field cabling for plant and machinery..
Our electrical cable design software, E3.cable, supports block functionality: blocks can represent components, rack equipment, black boxes, PCBs and whole systems and sub-systems. Connector pins are dynamically added to the blocks, and signal information is displayed alongside
Views allow alternate representations such as single-line diagrams, wiring diagram and cable plans. Connectors can be represented as single pins in the schematic and then as the complete connector in the cable plan. Changes to any of the views, are immediately updated all related views.
Hierarchical systems and sub-systems can be represented as blocks. Signals and connections can pass between levels and sub-levels. Hierarchy enables top-down and bottom-up design, promotes design reuse and provides project leaders with a system level overview.
Blocks can be integrated with PCB design data. Interface connector and signal information from the PCB system is dynamically added to the blocks in E3.series. Changes to the PCB are re-imported and updated in the block. E3.cable supports most PCB formats and has bi-directional integrations with Zuken’s CR-8000.
