Find out here whether your hardware is designed for EPLAN use
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.
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.
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.
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 ATI or Nvidia with the latest OpenGL driver
