Air-conditioning load calculation tools allow engineers to comprehensively analyse alternative building elements such as glazing, thermal insulation and low energy lighting to facilitate the selection of alternative types of air conditioning systems. CAMEL has been the industry standard calculation tool used by mechanical engineers for the last 40 years and if you haven’t already heard,...

Buildings aren’t cheap. They aren’t cheap to build and certainly aren’t cheap to maintain. Even the most thought-out and pondered-over maintenance cost spreadsheet will invariably include line items for those extra expenses that were never considered. In terms of energy expenses, one of the most considerable in any building is space cooling. If you’re reading...

Over the month of October 2019, we conducted a tour of training days for both Camel and Hyena in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne. We were overwhelmed with how popular the training was with most of the training sessions selling out! For those that missed out, we are in the process of scheduling training for 2020 so be...

The user interface for HYENA+ is much cleaner and more user friendly than the UI used for the original HYENA program. This makes the experience more enjoyable, easy, and less taxing when using the program for long periods of time. HYENA is an excellent tool to have and its now web-based nature with HYENA+ has allowed it to become even more beneficial.

It has always been a pleasure dealing with ACADS-BSG team due to their helpful nature and quick response time to any inquiries and technical issues. Camel\Hyena works out of the box and install time is in seconds, I cannot recommend any other company that provides better customer service other than Catherine and her team.

The ACADS BSG suite of software has been used by VOS Group for 30 years. We as a company have grown as the software capabilities have changed with usability and technology. The support from head office has always been quick and accurate, with a resolve to overcome any obstacles. We have always found the outputs to be accurate and reliable and a good basis for good engineering design.

Moving to a cloud based platform has improved the overall performance of the software. [being able to log in from any device] has improved my overall productivity as I only need to carry my smart phone or a tablet, and I can do my job remotely. Tools and functions are clearly organised within the new interface reducing any confusion for a new user. Copy+ Paste option saves a lot of time for Engineers like me. It just works like an Excel Sheet, where you can copy items and paste them somewhere else. It saves a lot of time especially if you are working on a single project and you want to do multiple calculations.

[HYENA+] allows me to quickly switch from one calculation to another without losing any data. This has reduced the overall lead time in doing calculations. I am sure [HYENA+] will have a positive impact on the Fire Industry.
