  • User friendly, step by step user interface ensures you get the most out of the software

  • Electrical condition specification which will allow for clear comparison between nominal current and the maximum current rating of the cables

  • Ability to specify different laying conditions for each group of cable

  • Fully compliant with IEC standard 60287

  • Detailed and comprehensive reports which are automatically printed to PDF


  • Multiple installation scenario such as laid in free air, buried in ducts or direct buried as well as in thermal backfill

  • Various sheath bonding arrangements, trefoil and flat formation, single point bonding, both ends and cross bonded

  • Specification of custom cables, single core and three core, from 16mm2 up to 2500mm2

  • Multiple cables per phase (grouped cables) with accurate calculation methods considering mutual thermal exchange


  • Determination of overall cable losses

  • Determination of accurate cable ampacity ratings based on installation scenarios

  • Determination of the cable rating for a duct bank with a maximum of 18 cables

  • Determination of the partial soil dry out around the cable and specification of critical temperatures

  • Calculation of the temperature rise in specific layers of the cable
