Under a contract between Linius Technologies and Eplan Software & Service, Eplan has taken over the development and sales rights to Harness Expert, the established 3D/2D software for cable harness engineering.

This will allow Eplan to offer its customers even more comprehensive support for all aspects of cable project management. It will allow Eplan to tackle new segments of industry, including apparatus engineering, rail and specialist vehicle technology, aviation, tele-communications and medical technology. At the same time, there is an increasing demand from within its own customer base for the implementation of 1:1 connections via cable harnesses. The new software complements Eplan Electric P8, the company’s own CAE solution.

Harness Expert is an easy-to-use software suite which fully supports all aspects of cable harness engineering. Typical harness or wiring loom design processes are shown by the software in 3D. All 2D production documents are produced by the system, which allows comprehensive openness when it comes to the import and expert of third-party systems in design, administration and production. Integration between Eplan Electric P8 and Harness Expert provides all relevant wiring information, such as wire specifications, source/target information and bundle and socket assignments.
