From my early days as a Cable Jointer to becoming a Grid Solutions Manager, I've seen firsthand the struggles engineers face with cable sizing tools. The pain? Outdated, clunky software that feels like it's slowing you down, not helping. It's frustrating when tools don't keep up with the demands of modern electrical engineering projects, isn't it?

That's why I started EasyCableSizing. I wanted to shake things up and make something not just easy to use but genuinely helpful. Think of it as your go-to for bypassing the headache of cable sizing according to IEC 60287 standards. Whether it's AC or DC cable sizing, getting it right matters for energy efficiency and project success.

Imagine a tool that transforms cable sizing from a chore into a pleasure. EasyCableSizing is the fruit of my journey in the electrical field, designed to streamline everything from electrical design to cable rating calculations. It's more than just a tool—it's the solution I wished I had, built to make our workdays easier and more efficient. From one engineer to another, let's turn the task of cable sizing according to IEC 60287 standards, whether for AC or DC, into a smooth, productive experience. It's about achieving project success, while making cable sizing less of a chore and more of a breeze.

Three Steps to Efficient Cable Management

Start with IEC 60502 for basic selection, then upgrade to IEC 60287 for comprehensive validation.

Step 1: Create Your Project and Study
Step 2: Leverage IEC 60502 for Cable Selection
Step 3: Validate with IEC 60287 (Coming Soon)
