Go Beyond Pole Loading with SPIDAcalc

Designed for utilities, contractors, and telecommunications companies, SPIDAcalc is the industry’s trusted structural analysis software. While traditional methods of pole loading are manual, tedious, and time-consuming, SPIDAcalc’s intuitive interface pairs efficient pole design with reliable analysis results. Its unique platform was developed to go beyond pole loading by creating a digital twin of utility overhead systems and to ease the process of modeling, analyzing, and optimizing overhead T&D assets.

Superior User Interface

Configurable workspaces can be tailored to individual needs to maximize productivity. Quickly create overhead designs using intuitive drag-and-drop functionality, interact with a live 3D View, or design an entire pole line at once directly on the map.

Cloud-Based Analysis

Analyze an entire project by sending it to the cloud while simultaneously allowing users to continue working. SPIDAcalc provides scalable horsepower capable of analyzing thousands of complex poles in a matter of minutes.

Analysis Engine

Built on the industry’s leading geometric nonlinear analysis engine, SPIDAcalc provides robust analysis reporting, including an interactive 3D model showing stresses and displacements as well as an innovative 360° radar chart.

Connectivity

Lead and wire connectivity eliminates the need for repetitive modeling of individual structures. A connected environment promotes efficiency and flexibility by allowing users to create, add, and modify an entire pole line at once.

Assemblies

Quickly create pole designs by using standard or user-defined assemblies. Assemblies can be added to a single design or an entire pole line at once, substantially reducing design time.

Design Comparison

Quickly identify differences between any two design layers in Comparison View and automatically generate remedy statements. Ideal functionality for quality control and creating work deliverables.

Wire Sag and Tensions

Validate designs and generate deliverables with SPIDAcalc’s wire sag and tension tools. Define tension by sag and temperature, generate wire sag charts and detailed tension reports, and ensure compliance with maximum wire tension checks.

Communication Bundles

Create a wide array of communication bundles – on the fly within a project or pre-built into a client library. Building, modifying, and reporting on communication cables has never been easier.
