The standard shipping version of AUD comes with the RUS Standards for overhead and underground engineering as well as material ordering for both. However since every utility is different and has their own standards AUD is configurable to almost any standard for both Engineering and Material ordering for overhead and underground.

A side note: The engineering values for the wires used in the shipping version came directly from either Alcan or Southwire so almost every utility should be able to use them as is. (all the utility would have to do is change the assembly name to match their standard)


if you want more information about AUD you can contact Linda Viet
