  • Parallel operation and series operation can be simulated
  • Rising mains are taken into account for the calculation of hydraulic losses – exact determination of duty points
  • Projects with several items can be stored
  • Databases of customers and senders
  • Iterative calculation of the actual motor speed over the complete field of curves of the hydraulic
  • Program update alert by e-mail
  • Download of database update by CD
