Electrical Panel Design Software

By: Baljeet
Electrical Panel Design Software - Industrial Power Control
(3 phase, 50/60 Hz electrical system, LT industrial power & control panel design)

One Software with multiple design features:
a)- Design Motor Control Center (MCC)
b)- Design Power Control Center (PCC)
c)- Design Desk Type Panels
d)- Design Instrumentation Panels
e)- Design Distribution & Metering DBs
f)- Design Feeder Pillars
g)- Design Bus Bar Trunking
h)- Draw Schematic Electrical Circuits

Simple operation: No intensive training. Just select the required switchgear, drag it to the workarea and drop.
Automatic Panel Sizing: What ever switchgear ( ACB, OCB, SFU of any make) is added to the template, automatic panel size & dimensions, panel volume, MS / SS sheet weight is calculated.
Automatic Busbar Sizing & Weight: Calculates bus bar size, cross-section & weight automatically as per the selected incomer size and taking into consideration other factors affecting the size and performance of busbars.
Electrical Symbol Library: Built in electrical symbol libray. Select a symbol and place it on the e-board. Draw as sophisticated electrical circuits as you can.
Multifunction: Design any type of electrical control panel, instrumentation panel, draw electrical circuits and calculate automatic bus bar size. Mouse click wiring numbering in auto ascending mode. Auto Labelling of all electrical acceessories.
Multi-color Wiring Diagrams: Give different colors to phase & neutral lines and make your electrical drawings more easily understandable and presentable.
Generates: Generates data sheets as bill of materials. estimation & costing. GA drawings, Farication drawings, Bus-Bar chart, Cut-out (Mechanical) design. Auto-generation - single line diagrame (SLD).
A key design tool: A key design tool for electrical panel designers, electrical panel manufactures, electrical machine builders, electrical engineering professionals, electrical switchgear manufacturer, electrical suppliers, electrical design consultants, electrical contractors.
CNC compatible Programming Text File: It generates text file to feed input details to CNC sheet cutting machine for making cut-outs for accessories. Text file contains programming for 2 - axis CNC co ordinates.

Electrical Control Panel Design Software
3 phase industrial power control panel and distribution board designing is no more a tedious and time consuming job now. Get your industrial power panel and distribution board designed within minutes. Just drag the required switchgears, instruments, meters, indicating lamps, fuses & accessories into your work area and let your computer simulator design and calculate the various dimensions of your panel for you. Make changes in size if required, change placement of items to best suit you and again get a new design and dimension. No limit how many times you change the layout and you get the final designs.Simulator takes care of various clearances while you place an item in the template and calculates the final size by taking into consideration these clearances and other factors.

Panel accessories
Panel accessories like - Voltmeter, Ampere meter, Frequency meter, Red Indicator, Yelow Indicator, Blue Indicator, Hinge, Lock, Knob, Contactor, Relay, Timer, Insulator, Busbar - Support, Selector Switch, Control Fuse, Push Button, Earth Fault Relay, Over Current Relay, CT, Electric Motor Starter, Power Factor Meter can be dragged from the tool bar and placed upon the panel template as per the need of the design.

Types Of Panels You Can Design
With the help of this software now you can design any type of 3 phase industrial power and electrical control panels - be it a power control centre (PCC), a motor control centre (MCC), an electrical power distribution centre, electrical distribution board or an instrumentation panel. Design cubical power panels, desk type control and instrumentation panels, floor type control and instrumentation panels. A key tool to design 'Contorl & Relay Panels' using PLCs and SCADA system.

Draw Electrical Circuit
The software lets you draw any type of complecated electrical power and control circuit/diagram. You draw horizontal and vertical lines and put electrical symbols upon the lines to complete your electrical (power or control) circuit. Cross over points are automatically converted into shorting-links or may be changed to jumpers or vise-a-versa. The software contains almost all the symboles in its library required to generate electrical power and control circuits. Label all the electrical symboles through a pop up text box - just enter the name/specification of the item and put it near the the symbol. Put ferrul numbering on each wire as per your convenience and requirement. Give color to all the lines as red (R), yellow (Y) and blue (B). Default line color is black i.e., neutral (N). Select line thickness to differenciate between power and control wiring. Rotate electrical symboles by 90 deg or back to best suit the placement upon the power lines. Delete any electrical symbol or power line with right mouse operation. So this software can generate elctrical power and control circuits in semi automatic mode.

Single Line Diagram
Single Line wiring diagram is generated automatically.

Bill Of Materials
What ever you add to your panel or electrical circuit, every thing is added to bill of material sheet automatically. If you delete an item it is removed from the sheet itself.

Estimation & Costing
You get a detailed estimation and costing detail in the word formate for easy printout and distribution. Change item cost, panel board painting and fabrication cost, bus bar cost, labour cost, margin profit as per your system and set up.

Printouts
Take printouts of the complete design along with detailed bill of materials, estimation & costing sheet, general layout, single line diagrame (auto-generation) and finally complete circuit diagram (semi-auto mode). When you have completed the design part and would like to know the cost of your panel, options are there to see the individual costs of busbars and panels
