Kelani Cables PLC introduced wire calculator mobile app, a mobile phone app that helps selecting right electrical cables for varied purposes.

The product is pioneered in Sri Lanka by Kelani Cables PLC, Sri Lanka’s number one brand in electrical and communication cables.

The new app that caters for domestic and industry was unveiled at Waters Edge with the participation of Kelani Cables PLC Director/CEO Mahinda Saranapala.

Using the new app, with the support of an electrician, households and anyone in the electrical engineering field could select the most suitable wire for wiring a house or a more complex place.

The household app component of the wire calculator mobile app has simple attributes that help find wires for ‘Single Phase’ wiring purposes. When the consumer knows the electric current (amperes) or rated power (Kilowatts or horsepower) of the particular equipment he can feed that data into this software to find the cable with the most suited cross sectional area.

The electrical engineering app component of the app mostly caters to project managers, engineers and electrical technical officers. User can input more variables to this component such as apparent power of a transformer (kVA) and voltage drop, length of the wire, determining whether it is single-core or multi-core, conductor material (copper or aluminum), wire type (armoured or unarmoured) and especially wire-laying method (inside conduits or underground). Kelani Cables PLC Technical Operations Manager Chartered Engineer Shyama Perera at the unveiling ceremony said, this software is equally important for households and for people in the electrical engineering sphere to correctly select the optimal cable for any application and with this anyone can double-check the accuracy of manual wire selections.

“In a scenario when you work in a site and you do not have technical instructions booklet in your hand, you can rely on this app to find the required information. You only need a smart phone or a laptop. The wire calculator app can be downloaded to Android phones via Play store, Apple phones (Apple Store) and computers, Windows (App Store). Also by visiting the web page anyone can use this app.”
