elec calc™ EP is a sizing software for street lighting installations
elec calc™ EP is a complete and easy to use professional tool, which meets the needs of engineering offices, local administrations’ technical departments, local organizations for electrical network supervision and maintenance and installation control organizations.
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 to the nearest 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.).
In this software dedicated to street lighting calculations, the user has the possibility to define at once a complete line of lighting. According to the context, default values are proposed, based on the most frequent choices or by the indications provided by the norm. At any moment, the user has the possibility to modify that information, to modify a specific piece of the lighting line, to create another start of lighting line on a first line …
The changes made are taken into consideration in real time in the calculation of the installation and all non-compliant elements are visually highlighted with a precise alert message in order to bring the necessary technical adjustments.
