The LoadMatic™ software takes data obtained from your project's P&ID by way of import and uses that information to:
- Automatically size starters, breakers, and cables.
- Create and manage the load lists.
- Develop the auxiliary bus network.
- Automatically generate load schedules.
- Automatically generate panel schedules.
- Automatically generate one-line diagrams/single line diagrams
- Automatically generate control-wiring diagrams/schematics
- ...and much more.
All of this occurs using the information you enter and automated NEC lookups while taking factors such as ampacity and voltage drop into consideration. Data can also be exported to familiar formats such as E-TAP for a more in-depth load analysis.
All load schedules and panel schedules created by LoadMatic are done so in template files, making them one-hundred percent customizable. These templates can be specific to your company, or specific to an individual project you're working on. Schedules are output to a Microsoft Excel format. This gives the user the ability to output quickly to a .pdf format after the deliverable has been created and get these documents to the field for installation.
The same flexibility is extended to the drawings created by LoadMatic. One-lines, or single line diagrams, and control wiring schematics are generated using your standard company CAD blocks, or those supplied by the client themselves. After your blocks have been customized and assigned to the loads and network items in your project, the Aeries Software will populate the blocks for you based on the data in the project... whether it be calculated or prepared by the user. If, during the design, it's found that a different block is needed, either due to a designer error or a project revision, the assigned block can be changed at the click of a button. Once the change is made the drawing can be updated automatically to reflect the changes without modifying portions of the drawing that are already finished.
These automated processes allow for fast drawing modification and data consistency over multiple deliverable formats. Using this technique utimately eliminates data duplication and the headache that can follow a revision. Once created, all of this information is imported to the cable routing application CableMatic PlusTM for features such as automated adjustment of wire sizes based on cable lengths and automatic orthogonal raceway design. While these features can be provided with specific, company created Excel spreadsheet load tabulations, LoadMatic™ provides a method to quickly adjust load assignments in order to save you time and money.
Take a look at the video demonstration below for a brief view into the power of the LoadMatic software. This video starts at the beginning, outlining the creation of the auxiliary bus using drag/drop methods and data entry, and progresses into you deliverables being automatically generated. The video goes further to demonstrate the automatic update that happens behind the scenes when a revision to the data is made. This update affects the one-line diagrams, load schedules, and panel schedules... and it all happens by the click of a button.
