Volts' Features and Benefits
VOLTS™ electrical design software is a comprehensive suite of integrated modules that produces fast, accurate designs. All computations are compliant with IEEE 141, 241, 242 and NEC® standards.

VOLTS'
computing engine dynamically displays voltage drop and actual real power values and many user defined variables which are updated with every addition or modification to the software.

Features and Benefits
  • By using VOLTS™, you will gain control over the electrical design process and make your business more efficient, productive and profitable.
  • Your learning curve is minimized by VOLTS™ Easy to Use Data Entry - Intuitive Interface - drop down lists with standardized industry data. This comprehensive interface facilitates fundamental computations to highly specific and defined analysis.
  • Your electrical engineer's efficiency will be dramatically increased by automating repetitive and time-consuming tasks associated with the electrical design process.
  • VOLTS™ software enables you to standardize your company's electrical design process across all projects.
  • You will be able to communicate and manage design data more effectively.
  • The power of automating the tedious task of creating One-Line Riser Diagrams, Panel Schedules, Feeder Schedules, Load Summaries, user defined reports, etc. saves you precious time with VOLTS™ electrical design software.
  • In comparison to the manual design process, VOLTS™ electrical design software minimizes or eliminates frustrating errors.
  • VOLTS™ increases design productivity and supporting documentation quality.
  • Your ability to accommodate the dynamics of the electrical design process by interactively adding, deleting or modifying branch circuit devices and/or conductors & cables is significantly improved with VOLTS™ software.
  • VOLTS™ features over 300 supported IEEE and NEC® tables, specifications and requirements.
  • You will quickly copy & paste Panel Schedules, Feeder Schedules, NEC® 220 Load Summary, and other electrical design data from our MS Excel® export feature.
  • Most reports are exportable to AutoCAD®, Visio®, Turbo CAD®, and other programs from our CAD DXF export format.
  • We care about your experience as a VOLTS™ user and develop enhancements based on client feedback.
