It pays to investigate creepage and clearance: the distance between conductive parts either through the air or along surfaces.
Conductive parts need to be a safe distance from one another, otherwise an ‘arcing’ failure may occur: a powerful discharge of electricity that creates heat. Even the smallest electromechanical design mistakes can creates circuit damage, overheating, and even fires– not to mention recalls, warranty claims, or injures.
With Creo Clearance and Creepage Extension (CCX), you can do it all: automate the analysis directly on the digital model, get visual feedback, clearly identify product safety issues, and easily investigate violations in the results window.
