New HBE P+Calculator: Quick and practical calculation for bell housings and couplings

For the calculation of bell housings and couplings as well as for various accessories such as foot brackets and damping elements etc. HBE developed its new software “P+Calculator”.

The P+Calculator selects the optimal solution for more than 2,800 pumps from 80 manufacturers as well as for IEC and NEMA-motors. All input parameters, drawings and output data are always clearly arranged. Minimal changes of the input data effect an immediate recalculation of the combination. Design engineers are able to calculate application variants quickly and practically. Furthermore concrete product information and prices are already available within project development phase. The drawings can be displayed as 2D as well as 3D and are immediately printable.

For a transfer to CAD-systems an output as DXF- or STP-file is available. To ensure that customers can calculate with current HBE-product information, an online-update for product data will be provided. An e-mail announcement informs the customers about new update versions.
The programme is based on .NET technology and was eveloped
with the programming language C#. Besides the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 this software requires one of the following systems:
• Windows 98
• Windows 98 Second Edition
• Windows 2000 Service Pack 3
• Windows ME
• Windows Server 2003
• Windows XP Service Pack 2
• Windows Vista

For a 3D-soft copy a Microsoft DirectX 9.0 or a Tao OpenGL is necessary. All required components are included on the provided free installation-CD.
