All the elements constituting a lighting line are represented in such a flexible and dynamic way with their characteristics and their references so as to obtain the calculation results very close to reality. The lighting line is composed of light points with all their elements (posts, cables, cable lengths inside the post and their laying method, circuit breakers, derivation boxes, potential plugs on a light point, delivery point, etc.).
elec calc™ EP leans on the recognized expertise of Trace Software regarding to electrical calculation with the development of elec calc™ (previously named TR-CIEL, launched in 1998), authorized software by the UTE according to the French standard C15-100.
