New release Caneco BT 2021

Caneco BT

Protection against electrical arc (Arc Flash Hazard Analysis)
Caneco BT 2021 integrates the calculation of electrical arc to identify each electrical equipment and to target the protective equipment likely to fail during a short-circuit, thus allowing electricians and other qualified persons to use the correct category of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

Those calculations are performed in compliance with applicable standards:

  • NFPA-70E© (2012, 2015, 2018): Electrical Safety Requirements for Employee Workplaces
  • IEEE-1584™ (2002, 2018): Guide for Performing Arc Flash Hazard Calculations

Integration of Schneider Electric’s range of Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)
Caneco BT 2021 integrates Schneider Electric UPS catalog which enables to calculate and size protective devices in the most extreme cases.

Updated standards for the relevant countries:

  • CEI64-8 2019 (Italy)
  • REBT 2021 (Spain)
  • RGIE-AREI 2020 (Belgium)
  • RTIEBT 2017 (Portugal)

Key features

➜ Calculations and sizing 
 Caneco BT performs all the calculations (Ik, du, If, ...) in compliance with the applicable standards and the electrical constraints of your installation.
 It also determines the most economical equipment to protect the installation and the individuals.

➜ Discrimination and backup
 Caneco BT provides a diagnosis based on tripping curves, calculation and manufacturer tables.
 It takes into account the currents, as well as the chronometrical and differential aspects to ensure discrimination that can also be reinforced by coordination.

➜ Automated diagrams
 Caneco BT automatically produces the diagrams of the electrical installation based on 3 dynamic data entry interfaces: network single-line diagram, board single-line diagram and spreadsheet.

➜ Effective data exchange
 Caneco BT allows data import/export from an Excel file.
 The electrical data recovered from Revit®, is used for the automated production of the diagrams and the integration of the circuit data into Caneco BT.
 Caneco BT converts the diagrams and the technical documentation of the project into a dxf file (an AutoCAD® file).


➜ Quality and compliance: 
Caneco BT avoids time-consuming multiple entries and so reduces the risk of errors.
It also integrates 17 international standards into its calculation engine, along with the maritime and direct current standards.

➜ Time saving: 
Caneco BT reduces the length of the design phases thanks to the simplified data entry and the automated production of documentation.

➜ Cost reduction: 
The calculation engine automatically performs the most economical sizing in compliance with the applicable standards.

➜ Tailored to global markets: 
Caneco BT allows international projects to be designed thanks to the manufacturer material catalogues that are tailored to each country and to the multi-standard, multi-language options (7 languages), including the printing of documents.
