Baumüller integrates components into its data portal

Baumüller is integrating its components into its ePlan data portal.

Specifically, the automation specialist is integrating its converter family b maXX 5000 (pictured below) into its web-based ePlan data portal.

With all of the necessary data for over 40 products, Baumüller says the move will enable its customers to save time during the design phase. 

Additional products from the portfolio of the Baumüller drive technology will gradually be added.

Baumüller’s data portal is an integrated, web-based data platform for provision of ePlan compatible device data from market-leading component manufacturers for direct use in ePlan software solutions.

Designers can now access all necessary data about the Baumüller products in the system, from the dimensions to the final specifications and all other required information.

This use generates significant time savings in the engineering process, since the user gets product data directly from the manufacturer that is ready for use.

The converter generation b maXX 5000 is the consistent enhancement of the successful b maXX series and impresses with its high-performance power units for air, water and cold plate cooling methods as well as flexible expandability and connectivity to a uniform communication concept.

The series includes module systems and mono-axes and covers the power range from 1 to 315 kW.

The devices are available with or without integrated safety features and are suitable both for standardized and for complex automation solutions.

With these power attributes, the controller and converter are used in many industries.

Thanks to the data provided, the design time for new machines as well as for machine versions is shortened considerably and the quality of the documentation is enhanced.

The system also ensures the data is up to date and the projects are much less prone to errors overall.

Baumüller says more than 150,000 engineers worldwide already use the ePlan data portal, which includes around 700,000 component data units from more than 200 manufacturers.
