Mechatronic Explorer

Advantages for the plant manufacturer:

- Integration platform for mechanical and electrical design document from different E-CAD systems
- Information system for workshop and service personnel with redlining functions
- Substitute for printed documentation in the corporate design of the plant manufacturer


The MECHATRONIC EXPLORER visualizes circuit and cabinet layout diagrams, cable and terminal diagrams, pneumatic / hydraulic diagrams, mechanical drawings in a pixel format, photos, PDF documentations, parts lists, cable lists and cable assignment lists, terminal and PLC allocation lists. The intelligent navigation uses the interconnections of the documents and lists and thus aids service personnel and users with the fastest possible orientation even within very extensive and complex plant documentations.

The MECHATRONIC EXPLORER can be configured with multilingual options and is UNICODE capable. Changes are marked, drawn and electronically transmitted with redlining via a text  and graphic editor. The user can use a shopping basket to collect the required parts, order inquiries can be automatically generated and dispatched.
