Power Systems Engineering with Aeries' Electrical Design Software

 

The four primary functions of the Aeries CARS electrical design software solution are centered between two large conductor cables.Load and Panel Scheduling Software Electrical Design Software Cable Routing and Cable Scheduling Software Cable Pull Cards With Electrical Construction Management

 

Throughout the design/build process of an electrical system, multiple roles are involved; there's the owner, the electrical engineering team, the electrical contractors, estimators, an electrical design team, and the construction hands that install everything designed at the facility itself.

 

 

The table below represents some of the more powerful automated processes of the Aeries CARS software suite, the pain-points eliminated for each of these roles by the automation of that process, and the deliverables that are created to assist these individuals in a seamless turn-around from one phase of the project to the next.  You can also see one of our live demonstrations showcasing our knack for 'Putting Intelligence in Electrical Cable and Conduits' recorded at Autodesk University.

*When Electrical Engineers Use Aeries CARS

Electrical Engineering Software

Aeries CARS™ is a database driven, electrical design software and construction management system that delivers streamlined automation to every step of the electrical engineering and electrical design processes.

Our software (originally developed and owned by GSN Technologies) is used to design and construct complex, industrial type facilities while enhancing productivity during pre-construction and the electrical engineering and design phases.  This occurs while enhancing team collaboration and reducing wasted time and materials on the jobsite. 

Automatic one line diagrams, automatic panel scheduling, and automatic wiring schematics are created via our load scheduling software LoadMatic.  TrayMatic, our 3d raceway modeling software, is complete with underground duct bank design, duct bank cross sectioning, automatic annotations, and automatic bills of materials. Our automatic cable routing and cable scheduling software, CableMatic, uses the data prepared for to virtually route each cable scheduled to test for raceway fill percentages, proper separation of voltage classes, and of course, the NEC.  Finally, our cable pull card software, CM Builder, creates pull cards and cable termination cards so the revision control software can do it's job in protecting the builder from costly delays. These are only some of the tools included in our electrical design software solution that make these suite of engineering and design tools a must have for anyone looking to increase output and reduce production time!

 At Aeries CARS, we are focused on providing high-quality, automatic software solutions for the electrical design, electrical engineering, and electrical contractor professionals.  That's why we work in concert with major 3D Raceway Modelling and 3D Plant Design Systems. Our suite of programs is targeted to the automation of electrical design and construction management, and all of our applications operate together ensuring that when data is entered once, all affected documents are updated.
