EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn.—Power management company Eaton has launched its new Circuit Design Software Studio, which the company describes as an easy-to-use platform that streamlines the process of designing custom manifolds. The software tool offers new 3D design capabilities and an updated product library that includes Eaton’s range of cartridge valves. As a result, customers can shorten design cycles while increasing efficiency for quicker communication and manifold display, Eaton said in a press release.
“The Circuit Design Software Studio was developed in response to our customers’ growing need for speed, providing a platform for them to easily position design components and communicate quickly with their clients,” said Todd McIntyre, product manager, global planning and strategy, Eaton’s Hydraulics Group, in the release. “From gathering customer requirements and selecting the right valve, to packaging solutions in a custom manifold, Eaton’s Circuit Design Software Studio helps users to do it more quickly, cost-effectively and efficiently than ever before.”
Users of Eaton’s Circuit Design Software Studio can incorporate surface mount valves, fittings, plugs, and other components into their 3D design to ensure the manifold fits their project needs. Additionally, Eaton’s new software tool offers a simple way to identify cartridge valve lead times and match valve pressures with specific system requirements for fast and efficient configuration. With the Circuit Design Software Studio tool, users can also stay up-to-date on pricing and lead-time adjustments by utilizing the updated valve library, Eaton said in the release.
The company reported that information from the Circuit Design Software Studio tool can be accessed from a PC without requiring internet access. The platform is also said to make it easy for designers to export with a variety of formatting options, including STP, DWG, PDF, CDSX, and XML. Step-by-step training modules are available from Eaton online 24/7 to guide users through each phase of their manifold design project.
