By means of a dialog that you can call up with the menu items Settings > Connection list columns you can use "Drag & Drop" to conveniently combine and display the required columns with the desired connection properties. The sequence of the connection properties can also be adapted individually to the respective manufacturing situation via the dialog. The set column configuration can also be saved as a scheme and if required be called up during subsequent installation work. In addition the connection type and the routing track are available additionally as new connection properties.

The new option Wire Terminal is available in the settings for the installation mode. The setting has the effect that an additional Load "Wire Terminal" file check box is displayed in the selection dialog when a project is opened. This provides the possibility during the activation to include a CSV file with extended connection information into the project. This functionality is required if the fully automatic wire fabrication machine Rittal Wire Terminal WT is integrated in your manufacturing process and if the prefabricated wires are made available in magazines of the machine.

2.9
Opening / continuing projects

When opening or continuing a project that has more than one layout space, a selection dialog with a list of all layout spaces contained in the project is now displayed. When the desired layout space is marked, a preview is shown in the dialog on the right of the mounting layout contained in the layout space. In the preview window it is possible to zoom or change the viewing angle of the mounting layout in the layout space by moving your mouse or finger.

2.9
Opening / continuing projects

The possibility has been created in EPLAN Smart Wiring for the manufacturing process with the Rittal Wire Terminal WT wire full assembly machine to load further required connection information from the machine software. To this purpose the Open project dialog has been extended with the Load "Wire Terminal" file check box with which you can load a file of the *.CSV type with the corresponding data from the machine. This functionality is also available as a menu item by the same name in the Project menu.

Further information

2.9
Opening / continuing projects While opening the project, a progress bar now shows the current loading status of the read-in project file. In addition information on the progress is displayed. In particular for extensive projects with long load times, an overview is provided of the phase in which the current loading process is. 2.9
Connection list

Apart from wires (single conductors), the connection list in EPLAN Smart Wiring now also detects routing connections of the type Cable, Wire jumper and Tube, if this information is contained in the loaded project file of the type *.EPDZ. A new button is available at the far left in the header bar of the connection list in order to switch between the desired connection types. When the button is pressed, a menu opens with which you can select the desired connection type. The connection types are represented in the button through the following symbols:

Wire

Connection list In EPLAN Pro Panel it is possible to store a remark at a routing connection in the form of a link to data sheets or other documents in the company Intranet or to websites on the Internet. If this information is loaded via an EPDZ file into EPLAN Smart Wiring, this link also appears in the detailed view of the routing connection in the remark field () and can be executed accordingly. 2.9

3D view

When changing the viewpoint on the mounting layout in the layout space with the button the rotations are now carried out in 45┬░ steps. This way isometric views of the layout space are now supported as well.

2.9
3D view A vertical scroll bar is now shown in the main view as soon as the clipping layer mode is activated and you change the visible depth layer. This provides you with an orientation in the main view on which visible depth is currently set without having to continuously keep an eye on the red line in the clipping layer view. 2.9
