02 November 2022

Siemens Smart Infrastructure and Eplan have signed a strategic partnership to strengthen collaboration in the area of software solutions for the industry and infrastructure market segments. As part of this agreement, Siemens’ Electrical Products business unit will join the Eplan Partner Network as a strategic partner. The objective is to coordinate the products of both companies in a more targeted manner in order to offer optimized solutions for switchgear manufacturers and electrical planners.

“The overall goal of our collaboration is to create a plug-and-play structure for electrical planners,” said said Andreas Matthé, . We want to open our tools bidirectionally for both sides and thus simplify and accelerate workflows,” said Andreas Matthé, CEO of Electrical Products at Siemens Smart Infrastructure.

The industry segment comprises offerings and products for control panel building, while the infrastructure segment includes switchgear construction for power distribution. In the industry market segment, Siemens and Eplan will intensify the cooperation that has existed between them to provide Eplan data across all configured Siemens products.

For the infrastructure market, Eplan and Siemens have decided to jointly optimize and automate customer processes, for instance in the Sivacon and Alpha environment (power distribution systems) by integrating Simaris (planning tools) and the Eplan platform.

Sebastian Seitz, CEO of Eplan has also emphasized the benefits for joint customers. “In switchgear construction, we can use Eplan Pro Panel to optimize processes and automate them to a greater extent,” Seitz said. “In addition, we will more specifically address the growing area of power distribution and work with Siemens to create end-to-end solutions for integrative, more efficient workflows.”

Eplan offers engineering software and services in the fields of electrical engineering, automation and mechatronics. The company offers software solutions for machine, switchgear and control panel builders.

Siemens’ Electrical Products offers safety and control products, measuring and monitoring devices, switches and sockets, as well as communication-enabled software tools that can be used to connect power distribution products to building and industrial automation and open cloud-based IoT systems.
