Calculation of HV and LV electrical installations
The sizing of your electrical installation, inclusive of its HV part, no more requires external resources, which often means high indirect costs: elec calc™ offers the opportunity to design HV and LV installations in the same project. Moreover, its integrated, automatic sizing tool significantly accelerates design time. Not to mention the time/current curves which are displayed in a specific window with unlimited number of components for an efficient check of protection discrimination.
Exceptional calculation performance in real-time
elec calc™ is focused on safety, service continuity and energy efficiency in compliance with major worldwide standards.
Above all, its powerful calculation engine updates in real-time the installation calculations (ICC, voltage drop, THD, power balance…).
This way, any modification at any place of the on-going project is instantly taken into account, and generates alerts about a possible error, either normative or due to power balance.
The user then decides whether or not all or part of the equipment needs modification.
Simulation based on all operating modes
elec calc™ offers the user to manage operating modes to simulate and control different installation configurations (normal operation, standby, maintenance …). Calculations are done for each operating mode and a synthesis mode displays the optimal equipment based on the most restrictive configuration for each component. Alerts and observations are shown on 4 levels: information messages, recommendations, errors or non-compliance, inconsistencies.
Drawing and calculation go hand-in-hand
Unique on the calculation software market, elec calc™ offers users a complete freedom while designing electrical projects, meeting industry’s needs regarding design and control of increasingly complex installations.
This design freedom secures the project by avoiding errors due to multiple calculation notes or double input of drawing using an external CAD product.
Moreover, large-scale projects such as production sites can be divided up into several tabs (as in Excel™), with links ensuring continuity between them.
A unique product including cutting-edge know-how
Based on the user-friendly Windows 8 environment, elec calc™ was designed to make the user-experience even more pleasant.
elec calc™ includes intelligent design features never before seen in the market, such as the new and unique Intellisense feature – a smart design function suggesting the most likely components to be connected to the selected one in order to speed up the design of projects.
A booster for your international development
elec calc™ allows the design of electrical installation in compliance with the C15-100, C13-100 standards, as well as the international IEC standard. elec calc™ is currently available in English, French, Spanish and Chinese to efficiently serve your international projects. Other languages will quickly be integrated. Not to mention the real-time multi-user access aiming at facilitating teamwork and project management.
Save money and win new contracts
Short-circuit currents are calculated according to the recommendations of IEC 60909 standard by the method of symmetrical components, making of elec calc™ the most precise tool in the calculation field.
This level of accuracy is a real leverage for reducing the amount of needed equipment, in compliance with current regulations.
This enables better answers to quotations and RFPs and offers significant money savings on projects.
Time-saving personalization features
elec calc™ new features deliver a more efficient and personalized user-experience.
For more efficiency and design time savings, a customizable personal library containing graphical components is provided.
To ensure work monitoring and information sharing, elec calc™ offers the possibility to associate (hidden or not) sticky notes to any component, containing text written by the user.
More safety with the Locations manager
For each project, users have the possibility to describe the geographical environment of the installation thanks to the Locations manager. Drawing contours and reports are available for each location.
The Locations manager allows a 7-level description in a project. Each location has a set of environment parameters such as altitude, air and soil temperature, risk of fire and risk of explosion.
User’s catalogs in addition to manufacturers’ catalogs
elec calc™ includes integrated manufacturers’ catalogs which are regularly updated.
In addition, elec calc™ now allows users to create their own equipment references, to be used within their calculations.
The generated calculation note simply includes the specific reference used.
Optimized and flexible editing, exporting and printing functions
elec calc™ allows the one-line diagram to be edited and exported in (synoptic or folios) PDF and DWG formats. A configurable calculation report can be edited in PDF format. The language in which the different documents are edited can be chosen independently of the interface language. elec calc™ is currently available in English, French, Spanish and Chinese. To facilitate and accelerate editing and project management, Excel export templates are also provided.
