Planning with CAE Software

Use your familiar CAE tool for planning circuit diagrams. WAGO offers you high-quality CAE product data and CAE macros. Interfaces to several CAE tools (e.g., ePLAN or WS CAD) automatically integrate your planned terminal strips into the Smart Designer configuration software.

  • Interfaces to various systems
  • Instead of entering item numbers, use the bidirectional interface to EPLAN to plan faster with function definitions.
  • Pass the circuit diagrams to Smart Designer, construct terminal strips automatically and save a great deal of time.
  • Plausibility checks help you avoid errors in your planning
  • Automatic transfer of the printing data from the CAE tool to the Smart Printer thermal transfer printer minimizes time and errors
