Trace Software International participates in Elec Expo

Once again Trace Software International is ready to fly to Morocco to take part in Elec Expo – the reference fair for the electricity, lighting, electrical engineering and industrial automation sectors of Africa. From 24 to 27 October, the event will be held at the Casablanca International Fairgrounds. 

Since 1987 Trace Software International has positioned itself as a global leader in the conception of avant-garde software solutions, with a unique specialization in the field of electricity, that is where the company’s core business resides.

Elec Expo is an unmissable event, as it represents the ideal opportunity to highlight the urgency of the African power issue. In fact, 600 million Africans still live in the dark, with a greater concentration in rural areas. Furthermore, the country is characterized by a low access rate and a lack of reliable facilities. Electricity consumption and economic development are closely linked, therefore promoting access to electricity is key to the development of Africa.

In addition, the fair is an excellent platform for promoting networking between African government, investors and local and international companies. The goal is to unite all the actors of the value chain in a unison effort in identifying the priorities of the country’s agenda and in the consequent proposition of efficient solutions.

Trace Software International, which has a head office in Morocco and a network of distributors in the rest of the African continent, will showcase the latest-generation software solutions able to meet the needs of the various segments of the industry. These software tools have helped engineering professionals to set up a new technological approach within their organizations, capable of guaranteeing concrete competitive advantages in terms of time, quality and performance.
Its software solutions:

  • elec calc™ is a software package that allows the calculation in real time of electrical systems. This is the only one solution in the world that integrates the management of low and high voltage, in compliance with various international standards.
  • elec calc™ BIM is the first calculation software that seamlessly integrates elec calc ™ – the tool used for sizing electrical installations – in the Open BIM process.
  • elecworks™ is the electrical CAD software specifically conceived for the design of automation projects and electrical installations.
  • archelios™ suite is the solution allowing the entire management any photovoltaic project. From the feasibility study up to the complete generation of the calculation notes and the documentation necessary for the realization.

For REVIT users, the elec calc™ BIM plug-in optimizes collaboration between the two programs. The compatibility with the electrical objects available on the BIM&CO platform is also an important resource for integrating and calculating the products of the manufacturers.

With the arrival of BIM, we have for the first time in almost thirty years, an exceptional opportunity to make a profound change in the way we conceive our electrical design software.” With elec calc™ BIM, the user has at his disposal a digital model, capable of simulating most of the installation parameters. This means saving hundreds of hours of work and obtaining a more rigorous design and an immense economic advantage “, says Etienne Mullie, Trace Software International R&D Manager.

 

archelios™ suite

The future of solar power looks increasingly bright. The archelios™ suite is the cutting-edge photovoltaic software solution to manage the entirety of a photovoltaic project. It is the unique tool in the market which allows the solar professionals to increase the performance of the project with the utmost precision. From the feasibility study, bankability, 3D design, to the compliance and calculation notes, right up to the operation and maintenance management, archelios™ suite sharpen your competitive position in the booming market of photovoltaics.
The President of ExpoCAMACOL, Sandra Forero Ramírez, affirms that last year the Colombian construction industry experienced a slow recovery. She is also optimistic about the future: “We hope to start the year with the construction of 150,000 housing units, which means an approximate increase of 4.6%“.
The company will also hold two different conferences. “PV solar panel installation” will take place at the Comisiones 1 area on the 23rd of August at 3:00 PM. The second conference “elec calc™ BIM- the software that integrates the electrical project into the BIM process” will happen on the 24th of August at 3:00 P.M in the same place,
Trace Software experts will be happy to welcome you to the booth 4 PS of the ExpoCamacol during the four days of the event.

Alternatively, it is possible to request a free trial of the software solutions.

For a long time, the engineering and construction sectors were looking for tools to increase the productivity and quality of their projects by reducing costs and delivery times. BIM has positioned itself in these sectors as the ideal tool for achieving these goals.

Innovation is at the heart of Trace Software International journey. This is why the company has soon followed the digital evolution of Building Information Modeling (BIM) to meet the business needs of construction professionals, integrating calculation and electrical design into the BIM process.
With the commercialization of elec calc™ BIM, Trace Software offers electrical professionals a cutting-edge and innovative software that allows them to improve the performance of their electrical installations dimensioning projects.

With the arrival of BIM, we have for the first time in almost thirty years,  an exceptional opportunity to make a profound change in the way we conceive our electrical design software.” With elec calc ™ BIM, the user has at his disposal a digital model, capable of simulating most of the installation parameters, which saves hundreds of hours of work, provides more rigorous design, and implies an immense economic advantage “, says Etienne Mullie, Trace Software International R&D Manager.

elec calc ™ BIM: an essential solution for electrical engineering

It is the first software in the world that perfectly integrates the electrical calculation in the BIM process. With elec calc™ BIM, the user can design, calculate and size the electrical installation in the digital model in IFC 4 format, generated by any 3D architecture software (Revit, ArchiCAD, SketchUp …).

For REVIT users, the elec calc™ BIM plug-in optimizes collaboration between the two programs. The compatibility with the electrical objects available on the BIM&CO platform is also an important resource for integrating and calculating the products of the manufacturers.

elec calc™ BIM offers unique routing capabilities. The user calculates the lengths of the cables generated in the digital model and it is also possible to perform different simulations to compare different routing scenarios. The 3D model allows for conflict detection and the BIM Collaboration Format (BCF) technology, integrated into the software, allows you to manage all communications and alerts with other operators.

elec calc™ BIM is the exclusive electrical design solution for professionals who keep up with the times and want to take full advantage of this breakthrough industry innovation.
