software programs

This version is the easy way for lighting design, just put The project information input, Room geometry query, calculations parameters and luminaires selection and get the results.

Electrical design engineers use this software program to make the following calculations:

  1. Indoor lighting calculations
  2. Outdoor lighting calculations
  3. Street lighting calculations
  4. Lighting Scenes
  5. Emergency lighting calculation
  6. Daylight Calculations
  7. Energy Evaluation Calculations
  8. Sport site calculations 

The DIALux program – red version have many menus and each menu has different options, don’t be confused, this section will explain the uses for all menus such as:

  1. Edit Room menu
  2. Insert Equipment Options menu
  3. Plan Lighting menu
  4. Calculation Objects menu

This software is issued by Schneider electric company to help for:
  1. Increasing your efficiency in architecture design and equipment selection, 
  2. Generating automatically the pre-design specification, 
  3. Providing you with argument about your architecture design and equipment selection intended for your customer.

Lightning Software Program - StrikeRisk V5.0 

  • StrikeRisk v5.0 is designed for engineers, architects and contractors who are tasked with carrying out risk calculations In line with B5 EN 62305-2: 2006 Risk management. Bs EN 62305-2 is a key to the correct implementation of BS EN 62305-3 and BS EN 62305-4. 
  • StrikeRisk is purpose designed to carry out the complex, laborious calculations of BS EN 62305-2, results can be achieved in minutes rather than the hours or days that it would take to do the calculations by hand.

I will explain the following topics that will help you to get started with StrikeRisk:

  1. Opening StrikeRisk program,
  2. User interface,
  3. Basic steps,
  4. StrikeRisk options.
