A Vast Collection of Engineering Objects
SESLibrary is a software tool that contains a large number of manufactured engineering objects commonly used in the electrical, railway, and pipeline industries. This tool is the default database for SES applications.
A Rich and Flexible Database
Users can expand the database with their own customized items.
A Keystone Application in the SES Software Suite
For many SES applications, the process of inputting data is simplified considerably when data is imported directly from SESLibrary. The data can also be viewed in the SESLibrary’s standalone mode.
Items in SESLibrary are categorized and organized so as to facilitate their identification and selection.
A similar organization scheme is used for other databases, making SESLibrary a user-friendly tool.
Finding Information Quickly
Various filtering options enable efficient searches of the SESLibrary database. Users can narrow their search by selecting one or more filtering options, and sort tables by column to facilitate the identification of the item(s) they require. Search strings can also be entered directly in a global search tool that is available for the extensive conductor database.
Creating Your Own Object Database
If a required object is not available in SESLibrary, it can easily be added by simply inputting the necessary electrical and geometrical data.
In the event the electrical characteristics of an object (e.g. a conductor, fence post, or CP/Mitigation conductor) are not available in a datasheet, users can make use of the SESImpedance tool to model that object—provided that its geometrical and material characteristics are known. Once the electrical characteristics are determined, the objects can be added to the user’s database. For a subset of conductors in the database, SESLibrary includes an associated, pre-defined SESImpedance file, which can be used as a reference and an example for new models. Equivalent conductors can also be exported from SESeBundle directly to SESLibrary, and added to a user-defined database.
