TRY THE NEW GROSSULECC SOFTWARE
GrossuleCC is the new software of Grossule Electrical Carpentry to calculate the sizing of the busbar system of the electrical panel.
The electrical panels are a component of the system and are subject to European technical standards and directives. The general standard for all switchboards is CEI EN 61 439-1. For the machine panels, which are part of the electrical equipment of the machine, the additional requirements contained in the standard CEI EN 60204-1, fourth edition (classification CEI 44-5 File 8492) apply “Safety of machinery. Electrical equipment of machines . Part 1: General rules “. The most significant test is the short-circuit withstand test of the busbar system. The aforementioned standards provide that it is not necessary to carry out this test on every busbar configuration, but that it can refer to a tested prototype. Basically, it is sufficient to have a busbar system tested so as to be able to derive various configurations and then refer to the one to calculate the center distance between the busbars and the center distance between the supports, based on the Icc values, applying the calculation described in annex P of CEI EN 61 439-1, identical to standard CEI 17-52 File 2252; “Method for the determination of the short-circuit withstand of assembled equipment”. Grossule for example dimensioned a busbar system mounted on the AS-23 series cabinet. The calculations were performed using a software produced by Grossule, called GrossuleCC, which contains the complete calculation procedure required by the CEI EN standards. And it is this software that Grossule offers you to allow maximum versatility in the configuration of busbar systems.
