Siemens updates Simaris design, project and curve software tools
By Anthony Capkun
April 16, 2013 – Siemens’s Low- and Medium-Voltage Division has extended and updated the software tools Simaris design, Simaris project and Simaris curves (Simaris 7). The new versions support electrical designers even better, says the company, in planning electric power distribution systems for industrial applications and infrastructure projects. For example, designers can now directly factor in the functional endurance of plants in the event of fire. Separate protection of parallel cables in feed-in circuits can now be determined right in the planning stage, which enables a more realistic mapping of the network and installations as planned. All product data kept in the tools was adapted to the current Siemens product portfolio.
