  • Clearance and Creepage Analysis

    • The Creo Spark Analysis Extension automates the process of clearance and creepage analysis for 3D electromechanical designs. You can fully analyze virtual prototypes of electromechanical designs.

    • Predicting the electromechanical safety before manufacturing and optimizing your designs will save you time and costs associated with prototypes, production scrap and field failures.

  • The Problem

    • Electromechanical product safety is often plagued by inefficient design processes due to the use of “rule of thumb” design for safe electrical clearance and creepage distances. This often results in products that are over-designed, yielding designs that are too large, too expensive, or simply unable to meet space and performance requirements as the complexity of products increases.

    • In addition, manual calculations are still frequently used to analyze clearance and creepage characteristics. These calculations are not only errorprone, but they become impractical as the number of components increases to over 1,000 or even 10,000 for products such as networking communications equipment.

  • The Solution

    • Today, in order to streamline your design process to get winning products to market faster and ensure product safety, traditional clearance and creepage analysis methods are no longer suitable.

    • The Pro/ENGINEER Spark Analysis Extension (SAX) is the only solution that can help improve the speed and accuracy of your analysis. With the Pro/ENGINEER Spark Analysis Extension, you can ensure product safety and optimize your electromechanical detailed design process.

Clearance and Creepage Analysis

  • Easy-to-use

    Provides easy model setup. Defines the minimum distances required to provide proper insulation. Verifies that measured distances comply with clearance and creepage files for nets (a group of conductive components and/or quilts), components, and assembly quilts

  • Model Setup

    Quickly define the conductivity of components by adding the Comparative Tracking Index (CTI) parameter to parts. Temporarily colorize components and quilts based on the CTI to enable fast visual feedback. Use Microsoft Excel to define nets and associated clearances.

  • Flexible Analysis

    Define the minimum distances required to ensure product safety. Define the groove width for short-circuit path calculation. Analyze and verify clearance and creepage distances between quilts, components, or nets.

  • Analysis Results

    Easily investigate violations in the results window; when a violation is selected, the path will be displayed in the graphics window to help the user better understand the failure. Quickly determine whether a net has been analyzed, passed, or failed, or whether a failure has been overridden, by viewing the status of all nets listed in the results window. Gain greater insight into design decisions; results that have been overridden automatically save the user name in the assembly, along with information that describes why the violation was overridden. Save analysis results with the top-level assembly for design reviews.
