Nexans EASYCALC, the cable sizing tool
“ Correct cable sizing is essential for the safe functioning of an electrical installation. Using Nexans EASYCALC ™ you take everything into account. ”

Nexans EASYCALC™ in 4 simple steps

Correct cable calculation takes into account the correction factors applicable for the installation. And so does Nexans EASYCALC™. In 4 simple steps, Nexans EASYCALC™ requests the basic information and applies the relevant correction factors.

  1. Fill in the basic electrical data: amperage or power in kVA or kilowatts, cable length, voltage type - 230 or 400 Volt, DC or AC and the number of phases.
  2. Choose the desired cable type from the list and select the construction: indicate whether you need an earthing and/or neutral conductor.
  3. Choose the installation method: above ground or underground, in bundle or loose, ambient temperature etc.
  4. View the result and print it out to save with your files.

As an installer it’s sometimes difficult to gather data on the entire environmental factors of an installation. For example, you don’t always know the exact cosine φ or ambient temperature. In that case Nexans EASYCALC™ uses the default values from the standards. With each result, Nexans EASYCALC™ also sums up what values were used to perform the calculation. This allows you to test a few variants and thus also keep track of your calculations afterwards.

The result of the calculation is the theoretical section that can carry the requested current without risk of overloading (overheating) of the cable itself. In addition, the legislation must be applied, which may stipulate stricter conditions for protective devices, for example.
