Solutions provider Eplan is increasing the Eplan Data Portal’s circle of users and further strengthen-ing its position as a global supplier of digital device data. To date, access to around 600,000 device data and more than 1.2 million configuration variants have been reserved for Eplan’s own users. At the Hanno-ver Messe, the company is introducing an expansion of output formats for the Data Portal. Eplan will now allow all users access to data in .dxf formats. Eplan is therefore becoming accessible to a substantial group of AutoCAD users, particularly in North America and Asia. Device manufacturers represented in the Eplan Data Portal will thus be able to expand their reach. Another new feature: robust commercial data is being made available to ERP, PDM and PLM users – as individual downloads or complete data packages. Starting in mid-May, all interested parties can register online free of charge.
