Endorsement for Draka
The full range of Draka fire performance cabling is now incorporated into the ProDesign software package from Amtech, the market leading provider of electrical design and test-and-inspection software solutions for building services engineers. The powerful, engineer-friendly software provides total control – from initial concept stage through to commissioning.
The Draka-enhanced software package enables engineers and contractors to conduct a wide variety of checks to ensure compliance with BS 7671:2008 (Requirements for electrical installations IEE Wiring Regulations Seventeenth edition). It can be used to carry out fast, accurate calculations and produce schematic drawings; reducing design time and cutting out over-engineering. ProDesign software can also be utilised to select and calculate cable sizes, identify volt-drop levels and system impedances, select and set protective devices and produce protection studies. The package allows users to verify that existing installations comply with the Electricity at Work Regulations, and produce a variety of detailed reports.
Commenting on the inclusion of Draka cable information, Draka’s Business Development Executive, Kevin Morris said: “We feel Amtech’s decision to include Draka cables in ProDesign is a real endorsement of the effort we have been making over the past few years.”
