Emerson Network Power has debuted a Building Information Modeling (BIM) capability for its line of ASCO Power Control Systems that can reduce the time typically required for installation and approvals, as well as avoid expensive rework.

The BIM capability is available with all ASCO Power Control System lineups, which start, synchronize, parallel, monitor and protect multiple-genset power systems. A lineup comprises a master control section and one or more single- or dual-generator sections. They are built to order and fit to order.

Even highly customized lineups for the most sophisticated business-critical applications are shipped with in-depth, smart parametric modeling data with seamless, ‘drag and drop’ integration into an overall 3-D building model. In fact, the capability is a standard part of every submittal package.

Rework, including material, labor and site delays, can add significantly to construction expenses. A study of 32 BIM-driven projects by the Stanford University Center for Integrated Facilities Engineering shows BIM can eliminate 40 percent of unbudgeted changes and save up to 10 percent of a project’s contract value by detecting design ‘collisions,’ or ‘crashes,’ of system components.

The comprehensive, 3-D digital model represents each section in a lineup for a customer’s project. The model shows height, width and depth dimensions, clearance zones, locations and directional swing of doors, circuit breaker placement and cable-entry cutouts. The information helps consulting engineers and contractors ensure adequate thermal spacing between the lineup and other equipment, clearance and placement for lifting devices for circuit breakers, and proper conduit routing.
