The new “interface” with 3D export from EPLAN Pro Panel

The new interface now allows direct data transfer from EPLAN Pro Panel, simplifying the entire process, all the way to ordering.

EPLAN Partner Network

We are part of the EPLAN Partner Network, a group of firms of various sizes from different industries and business sectors. We all share the same goal: Working together to develop efficient solutions so we can provide the best possible support for our customers’ engineering processes. Through our cooperation with EPLAN, we make your entire digital engineering process quick and easy to help reduce your project planning expenses.

Engineering Data

EPLAN Data from WAGO

High-quality product data saves you time and money.

What can our data do?
We create our EPLAN macros using the “EPLAN Data Standard.” Macros like these store a variety of information for you, depending on what this product requires.

  • Commercial data
  • Logic macro
  • 3D graphics data
  • Connection scheme
  • Function template
  • 3D graphics data
  • DXF data
  • Drilling pattern

If no macro meets your requirements, let us know with the Feedback function on the EPLAN Data Portal or the contact form on our website.

Where can you find our data?
You can choose your preferred option for accessing our product data:

  • From our product page, under Downloads/CAE Data
  • On the EPLAN Data Portal – in a browser or your EPLAN instance

On the EPLAN Data Portal, you can find over 11,000 WAGO products. Were you still unable to find what you need? Send us your query here.

The WAGO Selector in the EPLAN Data Portal

In the EPLAN Data Portal – the portal for CAE product data for control cabinet engineering – there is a new feature. Using the WAGO Selector, you can now find the appropriate terminal blocks in a familiar environment. Here are the advantages: Tediously searching the parts list in the EPLAN Data Portal is no longer necessary – thanks to a search aid, you can now find the right parts quickly and easily with the WAGO Selector. Only products with matching records for EPLAN are displayed there, which are then transferred into EPLAN or the engineering tool.

CAE Interface

The WAGO EPLAN Interface

CAE Interfaces for Control Cabinet Engineering

Increasing efficiency in your engineering process: Our EPLAN interface simplifies the digitizing of your engineering process. It doesn't matter if you export the terminal block assemblies you need directly to our WAGO Configurator Smart Designer or simply hand over the existing labeling data to our WAGO Thermal Transfer Smart Printer. With WAGO, you’ll find the right solution.

As a plug-in for EPLAN Electric P8, including EPLAN Pro Panel (Version 1.4.x), the new interfaces now allow direct data transfer from EPLAN Pro Panel. This change simplifies the entire process, all the way to ordering.

The Benefits:

  • Consistency along the value-added chain
  • Data reuse without discontinuities in the media
  • Time and money saved

The Features of the EPLAN Interface:

  • Automatic terminal strip construction from circuit diagrams or the EPLAN installation space navigator in the WAGO Smart Designer configurator.
  • Automated terminal block marking, plausibility checks, automatic addition of missing components and ordering options in Smart Designer
  • Data reimport from Smart Designer into EPLAN for a complete parts list in the CAE tool
  • Automated terminal block marking and direct printing from EPLAN

WAGO Smart Script Marking Software

The perfect marking software for creating and printing custom marking solutions!
WAGO’s Smart Printer thermal transfer printer in combination with the marking software forms an efficient, cost-effective solution for marking individual components such as terminal blocks, labels, type plates and conductor markers, as well as entire distribution boxes and control cabinets.


The basis of any switchgear unit is customized electrical planning. WAGO consistently offers you all the data, software tools and interfaces – from electrical and mechanical planning, to ordering.

Programming and Configuring with e!COCKPIT

WAGO’s e!COCKPIT automation software expedites machine and system commissioning, while reducing development times for automation projects! Ensuring a project’s long-term viability through sustainable cost savings hinges on a user’s ability to quickly adapt to new software and on high degree of reusability.

The WAGO Interface in Detail

Solutions providers of CAE tools like EPLAN, WSCAD and ZUKEN offer various interfaces. In this video, we use the example of EPLAN and the WAGO Smart Designer online configurator to demonstrate the WAGO interface. The data export is performed directly in the engineering tool. The data from the EPLAN Pro Panel interface is output via the Smart Designer online configurator.

Time Optimization with CAE Data

Reduce project overhead with eBUILD

For a conventional control cabinet manufacturer, a typical project takes about 58 hours. On the basis of various studies, we’ve determined that this project time can be optimized to 24 hours – nearly a 60 % reduction. This is where eBUILD comes into play, to make your everyday work easier, saving valuable time. eBUILD is a cloud-based solution from EPLAN, which is available to all users in versions 2.8 and above. eBUILD provides menu-guided creation of circuit diagram pages, drawing on a pre-defined library.

  • First select the required library and specify the key technical data through drop-down menus.
  • eBUILD then automatically generates the corresponding circuit diagram page.
