I am preparing a training for the use of this tool for systems integrators, IAD and some UF, in Spanish from Argentina and Latin America possibly.
The truth is that this software version is very good and is quite robust and to add elements that involve process products, I don’t see the ATS, and the ATV320 and ATV340 that are also used in these architectures of process and plants; And now also, it happens that there are several architectures with TM3 as distributed I / O with a head PAC like M340 and M580. In the catalog Schneider.
The idea is that these products are present as native Schneider products (as relays and keypads appear) and not within the Custom folder, which may be possible for another version, this would be very good.
Within the Plant Builder training in MLL, he talks about how to add third-party products, I would like if the work has to be done, to design an Excel, so that it remains as an additional file that we deliver from Argentina with these products to serve everyone or if you have done it and we can take advantage of it or tell me how the easiest way to add these components would be, but to the custom devices folder.I remain attentive to your comments and suggestions.
Hello, and thanks a lot for your interest in the tool !
We have been looking into integrating the ATV 320/340 and AltiStart ranges directly in the tool. We do not however have a definitive release date planned for this integration. Similarily, we would like to eventually add the TM ranges, but we don't have any planned date either for these.
The EcoStruxure Plant Builder team does not provide any official list of Custom Catalog references that you can import.
The easiest way to add references would indeed be to use the "Custom References" feature, and create an additional file that you can provide to your colleagues. To do this, you can for example "export" your Custom Catalog, which will give you an Excel file. Then, you can manually edit this file to add all the additional references you need in one go, and finally import it inside the EcoStruxure Plant Builder.
