    I've researched this for ages and all I've come up with are some interesting electronics apps. Other than that download Suduko and play it while sitting on the bog, it takes your mind off the job and you can think clearly afterwards (tongue in cheek )
    😉😉

  2. Thanks given for this post:

    the electronics design app "everycircuit" is really good. you can simulate power on the circuit and it shows exactly how the current flows with voltages at different stages,etc

There's also a containment sizing app that you can input the number of wires and cables you're running and it works out the correct conduit or trunking size with the correct amont of free air space. Another one I came across works out if a given enclosure has sufficient heat dissipation capabilities for the components you're going to install and if not it can work out required ventilation and suggest the correct sized ventilation fan required.
    Apparently there is nothing that cannot happen today.

    There are some useful apps for daily needs. I found cam scanner which quickly scans and digitizes all kinds of paper documents like notes, receipts, invoices, business cards and so on. Go with.

    I use Electrical Calculations Pro v6.2.0.1 by Egal Net
    Nice for Volt drop etc and so far I have not noticed any incorrect information whenever I have become scepticle, however there are many calculators on it that i have not yet used.
    I also use invoice simple, both cost about R30 but well worth it!
