What is Clever Suite?

It is a set of English and Italian language applications that takes care of the design process in 360°, also facilitating the organizational management of the technical department. It is the only software on the market that can be fully customizable with company construction rules It is based on original calculation methods, the result of more than 30 years of experience, reliable even in the case of non-standard elements and constantly evolving. Mechanical design, fully automatic but very flexible in handling special projects, is complete with drawings, documentation for the factory, bill of materials and costs. The automatic production and archiving of all the documentation required to build the element will relieve you of all that tedious work with little technical content, leaving you time and energy available for development. The very intuitive Windows-style interface will enable you to learn its use in no time.

Testimonials

Zucchiatti Elettromeccanica

As manufacturers of low-voltage transformers, we have found Clever to be a valuable tool to support design and especially machine optimization in detail. We have had the opportunity to appreciate the simplicity and convenience of entering design data, against a detailed and timely result, which is then reflected in the physical realization of the product. The calculated parameters are then confirmed by testing in our laboratory, confirming the validity of the program formulations. The ability to manage the component database allows us to optimize inventory management. We appreciated the possibility of maintaining a project archive, which allows us not only to track the final product, but also to safeguard acquired know-how.

Tamura Corp

Our company purchased Clever Suite about a year ago, finally filling the gap we had had for years in terms of electrical calculations for transformers and reactors.
This software has made it possible to greatly simplify the calculation procedure, reducing the time it takes to create a new electrical project and thus allowing integrated management of the archive of projects done.
Our engineers, starting from previous experience in electrical machine design, easily started using Clever Suite in a short time.
Input data entry is quite simple and fast, thanks to an easy and intuitive graphical interface.
Visualization of output data is immediate, thanks to the creation of data sheets and preliminary drawings, which therefore give a fairly detailed idea of the machine being designed.
Right from the start there was an excellent relationship of discussion and collaboration with the Clever Suite development team, which always responded promptly to our requests for support.
Clever Suite has therefore proven to be a versatile program that can adapt to our standardization and business procedures.

Trasf Eco

We have been using Clever Suite for a short time. Nevertheless, we already realize that we have made a significant step forward in both design and internal organization. Beyond the reliability of the electrical calculation and the completeness of the mechanical design, in fact, we appreciate the integration of all the information in a single application, which has positive spillovers to other departments as well. The reporting is very good. We see, when fully operational, a substantial saving in time and an improvement in quality

Trasfo project

In our business of designing and manufacturing low-voltage transformers and chokes, we have found CLEVER to be a safe, accurate and reliable tool. We appreciate its ease and speed of calculation, enabling us to optimize designs, all of which are made to a high standard of accuracy, even of special magnetics. The ease of storing and sharing designs and the wealth of information, is certainly another plus point.

AB trasformatori

We have been manufacturing transformers for forty years and had long been looking for a tool that was useful, accurate, detailed and simple at the same time for the design of our products. Clever helped us open up to new markets and confirm previously collected data. Truly present and constant was the advice of dr. ZANINI , always available to meet our requests with great professionalism and friendliness.

Commonly Asked Questions

Which transformers and inductors can I design?

You can design single-phase, three-phase and three-single-phase transformers, transformers with integrated inductance and rectifier transformers 12-pulse, from 10 VA to 1MVA or more. The upper limit depends only on the possibility of using a rectangular core. In addition, single-phase and three-phase AC inductors and DC inductors with any waveform and for any application. As to power, the same applies as for transformers.

Why customized software?

In the world of the transformer and inductor industry, each company distinguishes itself through its unique combination of experience and knowledge, which is reflected in the design rules adopted. Traditionally, many companies preferred to develop their software in-house to fully reflect their working philosophy. Therefore, software that aims to fully automate the design of these components must integrate customer-specific design rules. This approach is essential to ensure that production documents, bills of materials and cost estimates are perfectly aligned with each customer’s construction method. This is where Clever Suite comes in, the solution that will change the way you think about in-house software. In contrast to the traditional approach of in-house development, Clever Suite offers a powerful alternative. The advantages are obvious: costs are drastically reduced, representing only a fraction of those of in-house development. Its robustness is proven by more than ten years of commitment and research, guaranteeing unparalleled quality. Furthermore, its rapid implementation will allow you to be up and running in a matter of weeks, training included.

How does the customization of the software proceed?

Through a continuous process of improvement over the years, we have refined our methodology for integrating design rules. This has allowed us to go further by parameterising the rules in an intelligent way, thus facilitating rational and flexible modifications. However, some rules may not be parameterizable. That is why we pay special attention to codifying them in a specific way, thus guaranteeing the possibility of total customisation. We are proud to share that every detail is carefully taken care of: all tables related to the materials used will be integrated, while the complete archive of materials, together with the associated costs, will be imported directly from the customer’s management system. This synergetic approach ensures a smooth process, allowing you to focus on what matters most: achieving flawless results efficiently.

How does the licensing system work?

You can install our software on as many workstations as you wish. However, there is only one requirement: the number of applications in use simultaneously is linked to the number of licences you have purchased.

How quickly does the implementation of Clever Suite normally take place?

Normally within 6-8 weeks, if the customer makes the data available and actively cooperates, we are able to implement the software.

How do Clever Suite applications evolve over time?

Our dedication to innovation is relentless: we are constantly refining our software’s existing functionalities and introducing new features and modules. In addition, we always keep up with current Windows updates, thus ensuring that our applications are always state-of-the-art. Investing in Clever Suite is a forward-looking choice. Over the years, with a modest contribution for updates and technical support, you will receive no less than two updates per year. This means that your investment will result in a constant stream of improvements, making your work increasingly efficient and automated.
