SPIDA® Software Announces New Release for SPIDAcalc - v7.3 Golden

Posted Oct 05, 2020

Gahanna, OH, –  SPIDA Software, the trusted Structure Management Solution provider for utilities, telecommunication companies, and contractors, is excited to release the latest version of their overhead structural analysis software, SPIDAcalc – v7.3 Golden. The latest version features a robust set of new features including enhanced functionality and new reporting.

For more than a decade, SPIDAcalc has been used by utility and telecommunications professionals to accurately evaluate overhead systems to more precisely identify assets at risk and safely design new structures. While traditional methods of pole loading are manual, tedious, and inefficient, SPIDAcalc’s intuitive interface pairs powerful pole design with reliable geometric nonlinear analysis, including nonlinear stress-strain wire calculations.

With the release of SPIDAcalc – v7.3 Golden, SPIDA introduces new features and functionality including:

• Span-centric profile view
     o Clearance annotations and terrain definition along the span
• New profile view report
• Integration with SPIDAsilk Sag and Tension Software for additional conductor reporting
• 3D view enhancements
     o Visualization of full framing on connected adjacent structures
• Improved tablet touchscreen and GPS functionality for in-field use of SPIDAcalc

SPIDAcalc gives you transparency, control, and sophistication through integration and flexibility on data collection, material specifications, and analysis methodology. Go beyond pole loading and ease the process of modeling, analyzing, and optimizing overhead T&D assets.

“With each release of SPIDAcalc, our users gain a collective set of features inspired by industry needs and user’s requests”, said Matt Cain, Product Manager at SPIDA Software. “The team and I are proud to launch this latest version of SPIDAcalc that not only showcases our commitment to continuously improve our products, but also sets the stage for future SPIDAcalc product releases, including clearance automation and rules-based validations”.
