David v. Goliath: Vote for the Incredible 1 Line Diagram


On June 28th, voting for Consulting Specifying Engineer's "Product of the Year 2019" ends. Our competitors in the software category are Lutron, Schneider and Eaton.

But against these giants in corporate size, PowerCalc is the giant in ideas. Ideas that make the work you do every day easier, faster, smarter, and greener.

Why and How? Because we aren't just a group of coders, but electrical professionals who work with coders / facility engineers. 

Now, the PowerCalc team has invented the 1st ever simultaneously generated 1 Line Diagram, selected as a finalist in the "Product of the Year 2019". See for yourself at  https://gspplatform.cfemedia.com/pe/productProfile/5c5387873d75cb180049e4fa 

Our patented technology calculates the values for the Incredible 1 Line Diagram with PowerCalc's 7+ million equations automatically designing the entire power distribution system in a building, all in compliance with the National Electrical Code.


The Incredible 1 Line Diagram is best in class: fully graphic, automatic and simultaneously generated. Use a split / double screen and watch your Incredible 1 Line Diagram generate in sync with your design. So now, for the first time, you have a visual reference throughout the design process. 

With PowerCalc, changes are automatic and instantaneous upstream and downstream across your design, and the Incredible 1 Line Diagram keeps up with every input. Your power distribution design is always up to the minute ending fuss over this tedious task at the end of a project.

The Incredible 1 Line Diagram is a simplified notation representing a single or three phase power system required for posting in commercial buildings and for building permits. All electrical elements are indicated with standard symbols: distribution panel, panels, building equipment, circuit breakers, transformers, disconnects, buss bars and conductors. The block diagram indicates the flow of power between the electrical elements showing feeder sizes, trip /amp, fault current analysis, equipment AIC and % Voltage Drop.

In new construction, the Incredible 1 Line Diagram summarizes the entire power distribution system. In renovation, the Incredible 1 Line Diagram is the starting point to determine the project's impact on the existing power distribution system.

We need your vote. PowerCalc is about electricals designing for electricals. Back in 2016, we won the "Product of the Year" contest for being the 1st electrical engineering software in the cloud.  And here we are again, with technical advances for you.  We promise to continue to develop the applications you need...with lots more pm their way.

So, please take the time to vote for us.  You can check out the Incredible 1 Line Diagram for free below. It's easy to vote...here are the steps:
