The following are New & Enhanced Features in EasyPower 10.0:

IEC-60909 in Short Circuit and Coordination
EasyPower’s short circuit calculations now include expanded support for the IEC-60909 standard. There are new system options for IEC, new and improved IEC calculations, and new terminology that reflects the IEC standard. Equipment dialog boxes and reports have been modified to include new IEC fields. Support for IEC symbols has been enhanced using the new Custom Symbols feature described below. The Equipment Palette, Insert tab, one-line diagrams, and right-click context menu now display IEC symbols when the IEC symbol option is selected. Metric options have been expanded. See Short Circuit Reference (IEC) for more information on IEC short circuit analysis.

EasyPower’s Coordination focus now supports integration with IEC Short Circuit. TCC plots and remote voltage and current calculations are now available. See Tutorial - Protective Device Coordination (IEC) for more information.

Custom One-line Text and Equipment Data
You now have much more control over the text that appears next to the equipment symbols on your one-lines. You can choose what equipment properties and text to use and the order in which it appears. Several options for text visibility are now controlled using the custom text feature. See Customizing the One-line Text for more information.

We have made updates to arc flash approach boundaries, PPE levels, and have added the ability to display incident energy in joules/cm2. The device library has been updated to reference the new 70E tables.

Chinese EasyPower Version
EasyPower is now available in a translated version for Chinese. Both the user interface and the product documentation have been translated. This effort paves the way for future language translations. Contact sales@easypower.com for more information.
