How to Download and Use Siemens EPLAN Macros for EPLAN P8

EPLAN P8 is a powerful engineering software that allows you to create electrical schematics, fluid power diagrams, panel layouts, PLC programs and more. One of the features of EPLAN P8 is the ability to import macros from various component manufacturers, such as Siemens, to simplify the design process and ensure accuracy.

Macros are pre-defined symbols and data sets that represent a specific device or function in EPLAN P8. For example, a macro for a Siemens SINAMICS S120 drive can include the graphical symbol, the connection points, the technical data and the documentation for that device. By importing macros from Siemens, you can save time and avoid errors when designing your systems with Siemens products.

In this article, we will show you how to download and use Siemens EPLAN macros for EPLAN P8.

Step 1: Download Siemens EPLAN Macros

Siemens provides EPLAN macros for many of its products, such as drives, motors, controllers, switches and sensors. You can find them on the Siemens Industry Online Support (SIOS) website or on the EPLAN Data Portal. Here are some ways to download Siemens EPLAN macros:

Search by part number on the SIOS website. For example, if you are looking for a macro for a SINAMICS S120 drive with part number 6SL3120-1TE21-8AA3, you can enter it in the search box and click on the CAx/CAD option below the product description. You will see a link to download the macro in EDZ format.

Search by product category on the SIOS website. For example, if you are looking for macros for SINAMICS S drives, you can go to this page and select the subcategory of your choice. You will see a list of available macros in EDZ format for each product.

Search by manufacturer on the EPLAN Data Portal. For example, if you are looking for macros from Siemens, you can go to this page and select Siemens as the manufacturer. You will see a list of available macros in EDZ format for each product category.

Note: EDZ is a compressed file format that contains one or more EPLAN macros and other related files. You will need to extract the EDZ file before importing it into EPLAN P8.

Step 2: Extract Siemens EPLAN Macros

After downloading the EDZ file, you will need to extract it using a software like WinRAR or 7-Zip. To do this, follow these steps:

Right-click on the EDZ file and select "Extract here" or "Extract to folder".

A new folder will be created with the same name as the EDZ file. Open it and you will see several subfolders and files.

The most important subfolder is called "Eplan". This is where the actual macros are stored in XML format. You can open them with a text editor or a web browser to view their content.

The other subfolders and files contain additional information and documentation for the macros, such as images, PDFs and TXTs. You can explore them if you want to learn more about the products.

Step 3: Import Siemens EPLAN Macros into EPLAN P8

Once you have extracted the EDZ file, you can import the macros into EPLAN P8 using the Part Management tool. To do this, follow these steps:

Open EPLAN P8 and go to Utilities > Parts > Management.

In the Part Management window, go to Data > Import/Export > Import parts data > XML format.

A new window will open where you can select the source folder for the XML files. Navigate to the "Eplan" subfolder that you extracted from the EDZ file and click OK.

A list of available macros will appear in the window. You can select all of them or choose specific ones that you want to import. Click OK to start the import process.

A progress bar will show you how many macros have been imported successfully. When it is done, click OK to close the window.

You can now find the imported macros in 9160f4acd4
