B&R among first members of new EPLAN Partner Network

B&R and EPLAN together for more efficient engineering

Partnership between B&R and EPLAN ensures more efficient round-trip engineering between the companies' development platforms

EPLAN launches its new partner network as an electrical engineering solution provider, automation specialist B&R is among the first onboard. Today more than ever, such coordinated integration brings users added value in the form of more efficient engineering and faster time to market.

Each leader in its respective domain, B&R and EPLAN are already together by nearly a decade of cooperation that allows seamless interaction between their engineering environments. The new EPLAN Partner Network (EPN) further solidifies that relationship and ensures users more powerful round-trip engineering solutions going forward. 

Round-trip engineering

Efficient integration between B&R’s Automation Studio engineering environment and EPLAN’s Electric P8 ECAD platform is made possible by a round-trip connector. These two platforms provide unparalleled support for the automated exchange and synchronization of hardware configurations, I/O mappings, and process variables

Developers can start projects with either software or electrical planning, work in both disciplines simultaneously, and quickly compare and merge projects. Parallel engineering and automated interaction between the tools accelerate time to market and prevent errors due to manual changes. 

B&R and EPLAN on bringing the best together

B&R knows that one of the keys to successful development is using the best tools available. With the connection to the company, B&R customers enjoy easy access to industry-leading electrical design software for their machines, plants, and control cabinets.
