SpriCAD® for AutoCAD or BricsCAD
With SpriCAD®, as an alternative to WinSprink, the input of the pipe network geometry can be done with the CAD system AutoCAD or BricsCAD.
Windows 10 or 11 operating system
AutoCAD: Version 2018 – 2024 (64bit)/ no AutoCAD LT
BricsCAD: Version 2018 – 2023 Pro or higher (64bit)
The input of piping for calculation is done directly in AutoCAD/ BricsCAD in a 3D isometry using SpriCAD® tools with intelligent lines.
The isometry can even be drawn directly into a 3D architectural model that has been referenced.
Pipes get the following properties:
- DN value
- Additional length
- Pipe type
Other important basics for hydraulic calculation are given at the sprinkler symbols or possible installation parts.
- DN value at connection
- Discharge density
- Protection area
- Spray radius
- Minimum pressure at the sprinkler
- Number of the design area
For installations, a suitable symbol can be set and its equivalent length can be stored.
Three standard tables (VdS and FM) are included in the program. User-specific tables can be added.
Any number of operation areas can be entered, calculated and saved.
An extensive list of pump curves from well-known manufacturers is included.
All information contained in the drawing model is then transferred by transfer files to our calculation kernel (SpriCalc) and will be processed.
The accuracy required by VdS/ FM / NFPA/ DIN EN 12845, as well as the form of the calculation printout are met by SpriCalc.
For the revision of the sprinkler network different filters are available for:
- Water flow
- Flow velocity
- Pressure loss in pipes
