electrical calculation software review

Following discussions on the forum, you will find in this article the comparison I started to create between 4 electrical calculation software, used for the design and calculation of electrical installation, based on my own experience. I would be glad to get complementary information and opinions from other users of such electrical software.




 The comparison presents the following electrical calculation software:

- XLpro² Calcul software from Legrand 1.3
- Simaris Design 5.0 from Siemens
- MyEcodial L 3.4 from Schneider Electric
- Caneco BT 5.3 from ALPI (software editor)


I believe my criteria are self-explanatory, but tell me if some are not and I will clarify.

please add your own opinions and complements in comments, such as:

• other criteria of importance for you
• other electrical calculation software you are using, and your evaluation on my criteria

In particular, I heard about DocWin which I do not know.

Based on your feedbacks, I will update my comparison and re-publish it
