Features

Discover ElectricalDesign's basic features and take a glimpse of it's user interface.

ELECTRICAL DISTRIBUTION MODEL

Model the building's electrical distribution with switchboards each having a number of circuits. The hierarchical treeview provides an overall view of the electrical distribution. Each node's table of circuits has a detailed list of its loads.

CABLE SIZING CALCULATIONS

Let the cable sizing calculations determine your cable type or have a complete control over the cable selection procedure.

PRODUCE SINGLE-LINE DIAGRAMS AND CABINET LAYOUT DIMENSIONING DRAWINGS

Single-line schematic diagrams are produced automaticaly based on the list of circuits of each switchboard. The cabinet layout and dimensioning drawings are also produced based on the list of circuits and the selected cabinet's size.

FLOOR PLANS AND ELECTRICAL PLANS

Import an existing architectural floor plan and use as a background or create floor plans using the included architectural tools (walls, openings, rooms etc.). Electrical symbols and cable route are easily added using BIM method.

REPORTS

Produce detailed reports that document your design and calculations. Export them to PDF and RTF formats.

Benefits

TIME SAVINGS

Correct mistakes earlier – spend less time later with more complicated changes, offering improved customer satisfaction.

No time wasted importing/exporting data into/from different tools. Simulation and calculations tools, 2D and 3D visualization, drawings, reports, libraries and documentation within the same application.

Minimize the time spend browsing materials and equipment. The libraries come preloaded with a large number of data (materials and equipment available on the market). New data can be easily added to the libraries.

Every new project has default values (where possible) for its most important parameters. These values have been carefully selected and significantly speed up the modeling of the electrical distribution.

Frequent references to the standards textbooks can be distracting and interrupt your workflow. Important information, formulas and excerpts from the standards are included in the help.

COST SAVINGS

Ensure that your design satisfies regulations without oversizing equipment.

Prevent numerous changes later once the build is in progress.

Ability to take off material volumes and amounts means less overspend – which in turn leads to less waste on unnecessary materials being ordered and not wanted/ used.

Functionality

TiSoft ElectricalDesign helps you design any building's electrical installation, make all the necessary calculations ensuring code compliance, and produce a variety of drawings, floorplans, schematics and reports. It will also provide a wealth of information that will assist you in making design decisions early on, avoid oversizing materials and equipment and visualize the installation prior to construction.

Basic

  • Integrated, stand-alone BIM application. Not an add-on and no add-ons required.
  • Modern, ribbon-based user interface.
  • Unlimited undo/redo steps.
  • Simple installation
  • Simple licensing model. Portable licenses means that you can work on many machines
    using a single license. Purchase or lease your license.

Electrical distribution & cable sizing calculations

  • Hierarchical treeview of the switchboards and their relationships (parent-child).
  • Use ready-made groups of materials (circuits).
  • Fine-grained control over what is calculated automatically or selected manually.
  • Checks for mismatches, warnings and color-coded alert messages indicate possible errors.
  • Tables of summaries provide a complete overview of your project.

2D & 3D drawings and models

  • Easy modeling of architectural and electrical elements in 2D and full parametrical preview in 3D.
  • Embedded CAD editor for simple and fast editing of DWG/DXF drawings.

Automated production of drawings and schematics

  • Single-line diagrams produced from the list of circuits.
  • Fully customizable cabinet layout and dimensioning drawings (wall or floor mounted cabinets).
  • Voltage drop schematic diagram.
  • Short-circuit schematic diagram.
  • Selectivity diagram for each circuit.
  • Customize the drawings with your logo or select your own forms.
  • Export to DWG, DXF, PDF, RTF formats.

Reports

  • Absorbed power calculation
  • Detailed line calculation
  • List of switchboards
  • Bill of quantities
  • Bill of materials
  • Export to PDF or editable, well-formed RTF format
  • Easily brand your reports and drawings with your logo

Code compliance

  • IEC 60364
  • BS 7671
  • HD 384
