Power management company Eaton today announced the launch of its new Circuit Design Software Studio, an easy-to-use platform that streamlines the process of designing custom manifolds. The software tool offers new 3D design capabilities along with an updated product library featuring Eaton’s extensive portfolio of cartridge valve solutions, allowing customers to shorten design cycles while increasing efficiency for quicker communication and manifold display.
“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. “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.”
Eaton Circuit Design Software Studio users can incorporate a variety of solutions into their 3D design, including surface mount valves, fittings, plugs and other components 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.
Information from the Circuit Design Software Studio tool can be accessed from a PC without requiring internet access for better ease-of-use. The platform also makes 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.
