EPLAN Platform 2022

Network connection

If you store your EPLAN master data (projects, articles, symbols, macros, documents, images, etc.) in the network, you need a high-performance network connection.

Recommendation (Optimal conditions):

  • Microsoft Windows network
  • Connection rate to the server: 1 Gbits/s.
  • Connection rate to workstation: 100 Mbits/s.
  • Recommended latency < 1 ms.

A lower infrastructure also makes it possible to use the EPLAN Platform.

Internet connection

An Internet connection is temporarily required for registrations, licensing and cloud solutions.


  • Bandwidth: min. 20 Mbit/s. *1

*1: You can perform a common speed test to determine your bandwidth.

Hardware Server

Recommended configuration:

  • At least 1.4 GHz 64-bit processor
  • At least 2GB RAM (recommend 4GB RAM)
  • At least 1000 GB HDD/SSD (~500GB EPLAN Files, ~500 GB SQL Server, ~1GB license management)


This information only applies if the server is used exclusively for EPLAN and is taken from Microsoft's recommendations. The information on the Microsoft page has in case of deviation precedence over the above summarized.

Hardware Work Computer (Clients)

The computer platform is a PC with an Intel Core i5, i7, i9 or compatible processor. Rather select a high-speed computer with less CPU cores than a slower computer with more CPU cores.

Recommended configuration:

  • Processor: Multicore CPU, not older than three years
  • Memory: min. 16 GB
  • Hard Drive: 500 GB, min. 50 GB free space (recommendation, SSD)
  • Monitor/Graphics Resolution: 2-screen solution with a resolution of at least 1280 x 1024, recommended 1920 x 1080
  • 3D display: Graphics card from AMD or NVIDIA with the latest Direct3D driver
