Android and Web: Go to the main menu button on the top left of the screen and click on the button that says “Info” or “About CableApp”. There you will find all the steps and formulas used for the calculation.
iOS: In the bottom right corner of your screen you will find the button that says “Other”. In this section, click on the button “Information”. There you will find all the steps and formulas used for the calculation.

For the calculation, CableApp requires information such as the type of installation, the installation method, voltage, current/load, and circuit length. The option for an advanced calculation allows you to set more parameters for the calculation such as the power factor, active power (kW), apparent power (kWA), utilisation (%), voltage drop, conductor short circuit rating, short circuit duration, ambient temperature and whether or not there’s direct sunlight (when admitted), soil resistivity (when admitted), number of trays (when admitted).

The result of your calculation gives you the best and most accurate cable cross-section for your needs. The output includes its essential technicalities such as the cross-section for the current rating and defined Voltage drop (when provided depending on your country), an energy-conscious solution suggestion and yearly savings (given some assumptions and parameters). 

Yes. You need to go to settings in the menu and there you’ll be able to set these parameters. In iOS you will find the settings button on the bottom bar (third button). Some of these values can be modified per calculation directly in the advanced entry form.

You can print the output as a PDF or go to the catalogue to see more details of your result. All these options appear right below the result of your calculation.

CableApp usually proposes the most common cable for your needs; however, in some cases, it also suggests one or more alternative solutions that match your requirements.

The yearly savings calculation performed considers assumptions on the following parameters: cost of energy, average usage percentage and CO2 emissions. You can change these in the settings as explained in answer 4. The calculation method for the yearly energy savings is found in the “Info” section of the menu.

CableApp offers a cross-section based on the cable family. If the cross-section needs to be bigger than the maximum for this cable family, it advises you to use more than one cable in parallel. In this case, it is advised to make the calculation with an alternative cable type that has bigger cross-sections.
