Products & 2018 Price List
Our software automates the calculation of design loads and the checking of strength according to most international standards (ASCE, NESC, IEC, CENELEC, etc.). This has been possible because of Power Line Systems close involvement over the past 30 years with the organizations that developed these standards and the feedback from the electric companies that require their use.
The standard edition of PLS-CADD is a line design program that includes all the terrain, sag-tension, loads, clearances and drafting functions necessary for the design of an entire power line. Also includes PLS-CADD/LITE and PLS-CADD/ULTRALITE, but not any of the other items listed below (compare editions). COST: $9,500 USD
Optimum Spotting Option: Enables automatic selection of structure locations and types for the least cost design of a line. COST: $4,000 USD
SAPS Option: Finite element sag-tension option: provides a superior alternative to the built-in ruling span sag-tension. COST: $2,500 USD
PLS-CADD/LITE: Simplified edition of PLS-CADD for calculation of sags and tensions in a single span, thermal ratings and structure loading trees for a single structure. Included at no charge with the standard edition (compare editions). Includes PLS-CADD/ULTRALITE, but does not include the terrain modeling, material or drafting functions of the standard edition and is based on the ruling span concept. (PLS-CADD/LITE does not open or act as a viewer for PLS-CADD Standard edition models). COST: $2,000 USD
PLS-CADD/ULTRALITE: Streamlined version of PLS-CADD for quick modeling of a single span of conductor or wire. It develops a Sag-Tension report as well as Stringing Charts for a user definable range of span lengths and stringing temperatures. COST: $0 USD, FREE
PLS-CADD/SURVEY: Surveyor's edition of PLS-CADD that provides terrain modeling and drafting capabilities, but not structure spotting, loads, clearances, or sag-tension (compare editions). COST: $2,000 USD
Analyzes, designs and optimizes steel lattice towers for transmission and substation applications. COST: $3,500 USD
EDF/RTE Option: The separate EDF/RTE option for French design practices . COST: $2,000 USD
Analyzes and designs structures with wood, laminated wood, steel, concrete or fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) poles, or modular aluminum masts.
PLS-POLE/Bundle of WOOD, STEEL, CONCRETE, LW+MAST and FRP: COST: $8,500 USD
PLS-POLE/WOOD for analysis and design of wood poles: COST: $2,500 USD
PLS-POLE/STEEL for analysis and design of steel poles: COST: $2,500 USD
PLS-POLE/CONCRETE for analysis and design of concrete poles: COST: $2,000 USD
PLS-POLE/LW+MAST for analysis and design of laminated wood poles and modular aluminum masts: COST: $2,000 USD
PLS-POLE/FRP for analysis and design of Fiber Reinforced Polymer poles: COST: $2,000 USD
PLS-POLE/Integrated CAISSON: COST: $600 USD
Designs moment resisting reinforced concrete pier foundations and direct embedment depths for poles. COST: $600 USD
Structural Analysis of Power and communication Systems is the analysis engine that powers our other software. It can be purchased for standalone use to solve exotic problems. SAPS can act as a plug-in to add finite element sag-tension to the standard edition of PLS-CADD. COST: $2,500 USD
