Cable calculations

Cable calculations are an essential part of the design phase for electrical installations. Selecting the right section for the cable is very important to:

  • Avoid damage to the cable after overload or short circuits
  • Reduce the voltage drop at the end of the cable
  • Prevent overheating of the cable and thus eliminate the risk of cable damage and fire

Various criteria come into play when selecting the installation cable:

  • The circuit protection
  • The nominal consumption
  • The length of the cable
  • The ambient temperature
  • The number of installation cables in the cable duct

We perform our cable calculations in Caneco One. Naturally, we always take into account the regulations for electrical installations from the AREI (Belgian General Regulations on Electrical Installations). The Caneco software includes an extensive range of manufacturers. Therefore, our experts can always work out a brand-independent solution.
