ID-Spec Large main benefits


The speed to complete your design and manage its iterations
thanks to automation of:

equipment choice and sizing,


energy performance calculation of the electrical installation
production of the technical sheets of equipment for the call for tender specification,
production of the detailed bill of equipment for budget evaluation (this evaluation can
be provided by your Schneider Electric representative)

The assurance of the quality of your design process all through


the several iterations
thanks to the automatic management of the consistency of all the design elements:
power assessment, equipment and loads locations, single line diagram, equipment
selection and sizing, technical sheets of equipment for the call for tender specification.

The strengthening of your top-class professional image

thanks to the quality of the produced documents (substantiated report which presents
the electrical distribution principles selected, technical sheets of equipment for the call
for tender specification)

ID-Spec

ID-Spec 4 steps to define electrical


installation principles and present it to your
customer

1. Define the project


characteristics
2. Select the Main Distribution
architecture
3. Select the Sub Distribution
architecture and equipment
4. Select the Main Distribution equipment,
Generate the technical chapter of the call for
tender specification without equipment sizing
(including substantiated chapter about
electrical distribution principles selected )
