    Electrical Design Software for the Middle East

    ProDesign is a leading electrical design software providing full electrical design and calculations. This is a powerful, engineer-friendly software that is ideal for projects of all sizes, from houses to airports. ProDesign's many design options provide total control from initial design through commissioning, right up to final completion.

    Produce Network Drawings Fast

    Intuitive drawing interface and large symbol library makes designing projects quick and accurate. Spread data entry allows rapid application of settings to groups of components. Comprehensive range of reports provide diagnostic assistance. Produce ‘What-if’ scenarios easily.

    Protective Device Selectors

    Contains a large range of fuses, circuit-breakers and relays. These are defined with manufacturer approved data to ensure complete accuracy. We continuously update the database to include new protective device products as soon as they are released. We also approved a comprehensive selection of cables and manufacturer specific busbar ranges.

    Discrimination Checks

    The discrimination checks ensure that, wherever a fault might occur in the network, the protective device nearest the fault will operate to disconnect it rather than the next device upstream. Two methods of discrimination check, energy-based and time-current, are available. Manufacturer sourced characteristics are automatically overlaid to check for time/current discrimination issues. Manufacturer published discrimination tables are used to detect energy-based discrimination errors.

    Load Distribution Schedules to DEWA & ADDC

    The input schedules are designed to have a layout familiar to local engineers and provide load design details compliant with DEWA or ADDC regulations. Completed schedules are made available for export in Excel in a format compatible with the model described in the DEWA or ADDC regulations as required. The ADDC load distribution board schedule is compliant with the latest version of the regulations: Third Edition, March 2014.

    Output Schedules

    ProDesign ME produces board output schedules for DEWA or ADDC projects, as required, direct from the software. Schedules, Sub Main Distribution Board Schedules, etc. are exported in an Excel compatible format. The ADDC board schedules are compliant with the latest version of the regulations: Third Edition, March 2014.

    Links to Autodesk Revit

    Circuit information defined in Autodesk Revit can be exported to ProDesign to create an outline electrical schematic. The tools in ProDesign can then be used to perform comprehensive design calculations. The results calculated by ProDesign can be returned to Revit and associated with the relevant circuit components in the original Revit model. The ProDesign generated shared parameters can be used within Revit to enhance Panel Schedules.

  • Protect

    Co-ordination studies and protective device selection

    Protect makes the job of carrying out a protection study easier and so much faster than by other methods.

    Protect is so easy to use, you don’t need to be a protection expert to use it. The software contains a database with data on thousands of protective devices. This is data direct from leading manufacturers so you can be confident in its accuracy. This is particularly important as so many adjustable breakers are being used these days – it is essential to get these set correctly at the outset. Nobody wants to revisit jobs to sort out nuisance tripping that could so easily have been avoided at the design stage.

    Extensive Manufacturer Supported Database

    Extensive catalogue of graphical protective device characteristics from leading product ranges. Setting and characteristic data validated by manufacturers.

    Discrimination Studies

    Display of multiple characteristics on single graph, indexed with a single-line diagram to allow complete discrimination studies for existing or newly designed networks.

    Comprehensive Graphical Device Characteristics

    Overcurrent and earth fault characteristics with full tolerances; also energy let-through characteristics. Real-time on-screen adjustment of characteristics using full range of settings.

    Reports

    Graphical and tabular reports including setting details for each device to assist with correct adjustment during commissioning.

  • SingleCable

    Calculate single circuits instantly. SingleCable contains an extensive database of cables, protective devices and detailed reports showing calculated results.

    SingleCable is a cable calculation software that is extremely simple to use and provides results in seconds, whether the cable is a sub-main feeder or final circuit. Once calculated, the program also enables you to look at the results for the next cable size larger or smaller, and the same facility is available for the protective device. This is most useful for looking at 'what if' situations, a luxury not available when doing calculations manually.
