Substation Design Suite brings improved stability with over 40 new product enhancements between the two modules.

Substation Design Suite™ – Physical

Among the new product enhancement, the SDS – Physical code has been redeveloped in order to bring more extensive new features in future SDS – Physical releases. SDS – Physical also has a new tool to extract work point coordinates from a selected part to work with the SDS – P&C tool for control cable lengths.

Substation Design Suite™ – Protection & Control

We are excited to announce among the new features in SDS – P&C is a user modifiable SDS Tools ribbon that will provide a better workflow for our customers. With this new menu, the F1 keystroke “Help” now displays the 150-page SDS Tools Command Reference with TOC hotlinks to jump to and display the desired commands. Job/Work-order, status assignment, tracking, and reporting has been significantly enhanced. The original limit of three predefined status levels are now unlimited.

These are just a few on the many new enhancements for Substation Design Suite 7.4.2. For a more extensive demonstration of all the SDS-Physical and P&C features, SBS will be hosting two webinars this month.
