Courtesy: Emerson Network PowerEmerson Network Power’s ASCO Power Control Systems has added building information modeling (BIM) capability that can reduce the time typically required for installation and approvals, and avoid expensive rework. The BIM capability is available with all ASCO Power Control System lineups, which start, synchronize, parallel, monitor, and protect multiple-genset power systems. A lineup comprises a master control section and one or more single- or dual-generator sections. They are built to order and fit to order. The 3-D digital model represents each section in a lineup for a customer's project. The model shows height, width, and depth dimensions; clearance zones; locations and directional swing of doors; circuit breaker placement; and cable-entry cutouts. The information helps consulting engineers ensure adequate thermal spacing between the lineup and other equipment, clearance and placement for lifting devices for circuit breakers, and proper conduit routing.
