For customers who only need to lodge the occasional EPC we have teamed up with the sap service to offer JPA Designer users a quick, effective and economical way of lodging EPC's without the need to go through the Accreditation process. The sap service will take your JPA Designer .JDP project file, check it through and lodge the EPC on your behalf.
The SAP Service can also produce Uvalue and full SAP calculations if you prefer not to do the work yourselves.
Click on the image right or contact firstname.lastname@example.org and mention you have come via JPA TL to receive their special rate for current JPA Designer licence holders.
The Boiler Efficiency Database is a website view of part of the Product Characteristics Database that is used to supply technical data to SAP 2012. The Product Characteristics Database is changed on the first working day of each month to add new entries and amend existing ones, so data from it should not be stored for future reference.
Data for boilers in current production has been provided by boiler manufacturers, who have had an opportunity to check the database entries before publication. Quoted SEDBUK efficiency figures are based on test results submitted by manufacturers and certified by an independent Notified Body (accredited for the testing of boilers to European standards). From October 2010 it is possible for SAP to take into account hot water performance test data for combi boilers.
The data file is not intended for other purposes. The format is not published, and no assumptions should be made about the meaning of data found in it. Files are from www.sedbuk.com and are © Crown Copyright.
From version 5.03a2 we have added an easy update feature for the Product Characteristics database meaning itis now possible to download and update the SAP PCDF (Product Characteristics Data File – the 'boiler database') from within JPA Designer:
1. On the File menu select Download and reload Product Characteristics Data File.
2. At the Product Characteristics Data File Download dialogue click Start update.
3. When the Update complete message appears click OK.
4. At the message Would you like to load the new database? click Yes.
5. The new data file is now loaded into the program.
6. Close the Product Characteristics Data File Download dialogue.
Older versions will need to have the boiler database files updated manually.
Note: if you produce 9.81 and 9.90 calculations you will require both files.
To install the database (.dat) files, first ensure JPA Designer is closed down (they won't install otherwise) and then double-click or run the .exe files. Click on 'browse' in the next window and select 'C' > program files > JPATL > JPA Designer 981 and then select unzip. This will insert the .dat file.
