The addition of the Philips Selecon line of luminaires makes Philips Strand System BuilderTM the only design tool currently available with a full line of theatrical lighting luminaires. The Acclaim, Rama, Pacific, Arena, Hui, and Aurora product families have been integrated into a completely re-designed Luminaire Wizard to help users pick the correct luminaire for their specific application.

A user-friendly interface and product wizards means you do not have to know catalogue or part numbers and simple input or import of load schedules will automatically generate dimmer, relay and emergency transfer system hardware requirements. SSB will also produce the project bill of materials, one-line diagrams, standard product drawings, written specifications as well as data sheets to presentation quality colour PDF standards which can be personalised with your logo and company information.

"I downloaded this program called System Builder from the website and it allowed me to design it up, create the bill of materials and output drawings for the electrician. There is no Engineer on the job. We're a small school outside of the GTA and we'd like to purchase this now."
