What's New - EasyPower 10.6

The following are the primary features included in the 10.6 release. For additional features and release details, see EasyPower 10.6 Release Details.

  • Data Collection with Camera Integration: Within EasyPower, new features now allow you to take pictures with your computer's built-in camera or an external camera and immediately associate pictures with specific equipment in your model. You can also add names, notes, and tags to pictures within EasyPower.

  • Boundary Calculations for User-Specified Arc Flash PPE Ratings: A new option is available to calculate an additional boundary for arc flash--the PPE Boundary. The PPE Boundary is the distance at which the available incident energy is equivalent to the user-specified PPE Rating. You can set the Rating for PPE Boundary in the Advanced Arc Flash Options. Use this option to set a specific energy value for which you would like a distance calculated in addition to the normal arc flash boundary calculation. This option applies only when the arc flash hazard standard is set to use IEEE 1584-2018.

  • Auto-Calculate Added for HV and LV Breakers: HV and LV Breaker short circuit information is now auto-calculated based on manufacturer library information. You can also choose to disable auto-calculation and enter this data manually.

  • Retain Defaults When Upgrading: When you upgrade EasyPower from a prior version (10.0 or later), your custom equipment default, short circuit, and arc flash settings are automatically retained through the update process.

  • TCC Title Block - Linked or Custom Names: You can now link the name in a TCC title block to the name under which the TCC is stored, or specify a custom name in the title block.
