Thanks to the software system around ArCADia BIM, the planning and drawing of building projects for laypeople is greatly simplified. In addition, experts also benefit from the diverse functions. The program not only offers you tools for visualizing and creating floor plans. Much more, you also create electrical plans at the same time and draw in all the data relating to the electrical distributors. For this you need the additional module “electrical distributor” for ArCADia BIM. We also recommend the ArCADia BIM module “Electrical installations” in order to be able to fully exploit all functions in this area. The plans created can be used at the same time, as they are based on the most important standards in this area. These include:
DIN-IEC 60364 erection of low-voltage systems
DIN-EN 60617 Graphic symbols for circuit diagrams
DIN-EN 60439 low-voltage switchgear assemblies
Please note: The ArCADia electrical distributor is an additional module for ArCADia BIM! In this sense, a licensed version of ArCADia BIM 3D is absolutely necessary in order to be able to use the module and its functions.
ArCADia electrical distributors include these functions
In the case of the additional module, the main focus is on the creation and drawing of the single-line diagrams of electrical distributors. For this purpose, the control circuits are created and various calculations are carried out. Based on this, the distribution board scheme can be created automatically, which saves you a lot of effort. During the planning of the electrical distributors in your building, the program automatically creates quantity lists, which simplifies the actual implementation of the plan in the future. All elements will be shown to you in the further process in the visualized building. This applies, for example, to the electrical distributors, which are taken over directly in the drawing. In addition, the module has a database which contains all symbols for drawing in circuit diagrams and schemes. In order to offer you a variety, the symbols from the following manufacturers have been taken into account: Legrand, Moeller, Hager, ABB, Jean Muller and Schneider. You can also customize the symbols yourself.
In these cases, the ArCADia electrical distributor is suitable
The variety within ArCADia 3D BIM is impressive. While it is a comprehensive program for planning buildings from A to Z, the various extensions are suitable for different professional groups and industries. Accordingly, the additional module ArCADia BIM electrical distributor is suitable, for example, for electrical planners and engineers.
