Pacelab Suite 5.0 now available
New release of conceptual design platform introduces significant functional enhancements for streamlining the setup of product models
Pacelab Suite 5.0 enables users to graphically define physical and abstract connections between components (e.g. electrical wiring, chronological order or logical links) and automatically translates them into mathematical relations. A connection drawn between two electrical components, for example, will create the required power summation formulas or propagate voltages which take into account the voltage drops induced by the resistance of the physical cable connection. For optimum user guidance, suitable component connections are highlighted in the interactive definition process.
With version 5.0, the frontend of the component database has been completely redesigned now offering an icon-driven, catalog-like handling. Components can be complemented with comprehensive documentation to help engineers select the appropriate building blocks when setting up their product models. Supporting texts and images can simply be added from office applications and similar tools.
The upgrade's new capabilities will also benefit users of PACE's vertical solutions for conceptual aircraft design and systems architecture, which draw on the functional infrastructure provided by the Pacelab Suite platform.
