1 Building a New Electric World How can your LV electrical installation be rapidly designed and optimized?
Corporate - 2007 - En2 Summary A tool to save time A reliable tool to comply with standards 6 steps to creating a complete design

Corporate - 2007 - En4 A tool to save time, Ecodial enables you to fully design a LV electrical installation Ecodial draws, calculates and dimensions equipment on a low-voltage network. You can easily achieve a single line diagram by dragging and dropping electrotechnical macro-componants from a library With one click, you can design the whole installation, including min./max. short-circuit currents, voltage drop values, cable dimensions plus automatic protective device optimization as well as trip-unit settings. Customized data entry enables you to change Ecodial’s selection. You can control the performance level of your protection system and view tripping curve coordinates, discrimination limits, effect of optimization by means of cascading. You can master the report, including cable, trip-unit settings, calculation formula sheets

Corporate - 2007 - En6 A reliable tool to comply with Standards An independent institute has certified Ecodial’s compliance A unique international standard (IEC909), which has been simplified in CENELEC guide R064-003 for LV calculation software: Ecodial calculates ALL short-circuit currents (min., max., ground fault, single-phase, three-phase), voltage drop, cable short-circuit resistance, etc. Note: Simplification is acceptable, as product standards (IEC60947-2) take these transient phenomena into consideration. UTE certification n° 15L-602 provides you with an assurance that Ecodial complies with calculation standards
Corporate - 2007 - En7 A reliable tool to comply with Standards (cont.) Ecodial is based on Schneider’s worldwide experience Installation standards address all the issues relative to safety: overload protection, minimum cable sizes, protection against direct and indirect contact, short-circuit protection. Generally speaking, these rules are all based on the same initial document: IEC60364. Ecodial also complies fully with NEN1010, AS3008, NFC15100. There are 15,000 users of Ecodial in 40 different countries around the world.
