Design data

We want you to be able to design quickly and easily with our products. This is why our product data is available in many engineering systems and exchange formats.

To the product overview

Engineering systems and exchange formats


EPLAN biedt software en service rondom de engineering op het gebied van elektrotechniek, automatisering en mechatronica. Het bedrijf ontwikkelt een van de wereldwijd toonaangevende softwareoplossingen voor de bouw van machines, installaties en schakelkasten. EPLAN is bovendien de ideale partner om uitdagende engineeringprocessen te vereenvoudigen.

Gestandaardiseerde en individuele ERP- en PLM/PDM-interfaces beveiligen doorlopende gegevens langs de gehele waardeketen. Werken met EPLAN betekent onbeperkte communicatie over alle engineeringdisciplines heen.

EPLAN data record

With our article data in EPLAN format, there's no need for tedious and time-consuming manual entry of design data. Instead, you can find the right specification easily using the search function. This saves time and prevents input errors. In addition, as the logical data is stored in the plan, you can also create accurate and suitable parts and order lists. The article data is available in all EPLAN languages.

EPLAN Data Portal

You can also find our LAPP products directly in the EPLAN Data Portal. The portal is used for discussions between our EPIC®, ÖLFLEX®, SKINTOP® and SKINDICHT® products and the electrical engineering project providers. Alongside alphanumeric article data, this master data contains, among other things, circuit diagram macros, multilingual article information, preview images, documents and much more. The data is integrated directly into your workflow from EPLAN Electric P8 or the other product platforms during download.


Validated and high-quality data on electrical components for E3.series

The E3.series from Zuken is used worldwide by leading companies in the manufacturing industry to create sophisticated electrical cable, control cabinet and cordset designs for advanced applications in the fields of mechanical engineering, energy, automotive, transport, aerospace and defence.

The Zuken Component Cloud for E3.series provides Zuken E3.series users online access to free, validated, and high-quality electrical component data.


Zuken: certified E3 components

The LAPP parts catalogue is available directly in the CAE software from Zuken or as a download and can be integrated with just a few clicks. The library data contains all important information such as fastening points, symbols, alternative views, technical parameters, classifications, part numbers and so on.

In addition to the material master data, all the electrical information required for creating the circuit diagram, the control cabinet layout and the cabling, as well as for assembling a cordset, is provided.


To enable you to design faster, we've connected our 3D/CAD product catalogue to the highly innovative PARTserver technology from Cadenas. This powerful collaborative CAD platform simplifies your internal and external information flow, guarantees high data quality and reduces your costs.

Cadenas: CAD product data

You can find CAD models of our EPIC®, SILVYN® SKINTOP® and ETHERLINE® products in over 150 different native formats, as well as exchange formats in 2D or 3D. You can download the models and incorporate them into your design and part lists.


AmpereSoft GmbH provides you with a manufacturer-neutral and process-oriented tool system and advises you on process optimisation issues in master data management. With the tool system you can optimise your processes throughout the entire life cycle. You can quickly configure complete switching stations, calculate quotes, calculate temperatures in line with DIN EN 61439-1 or manage your material data, e.g. for ETIM, eCl@ss Advanced.

LAPP and AmpereSoft MatClass

You can access current, valid and detailed data directly when you download the LAPP MatClass material library and integrate it into your AmpereSoft MatClass. In addition, you can manage, use and distribute product data more easily, quickly and flexibly.


AUCOTEC AG is one of the major German suppliers of engineering systems and the associated planning and operations services for electronic, measurement and control plants.

Engineering Base is a software solution deployed primarily in mechanical and plant engineering, the energy sector, process technology and vehicle cabling. There are currently over 12,000 LAPP cables available in Engineering Base, with the data readable from version 6.6.1 or more.

LAPP and AUCOTEC Engineering Base

Comprehensive information for your planning: The AUCOTEC product data contains the alphanumerical device and order data, as well as insulated wire, shielding and bundle information, not to mention the associated data such as cross-section and colour of over 12,000 LAPP cables. AUCOTEC product data can be integrated easily into Engineering Base, the latest generation of software from AUCOTEC.
