Cableways can be routed with different types of components such as trays, ladders or cable conduits. The cable management tool creates a dynamic nodal network based on existing cableways and penetrations in the model.
The system uses the nodal network to find the most optimal routes for cables between equipment and other objects and controls the status of cables. The user can easily manage which cables are routed, not routed, and for which cables the route has changed. Cable definitions can be imported easily from MS Excel for instance via the XML link from which the Cable Management tool automatically creates cables.
Cross section views can be generated for cableways at the selected segment and penetrations (including sealed penetrations, for example, Roxtec). It can be used to inspect fill rates, cable assignment in segregations on the cableway or in penetrations. Cross-section views can be attached to construction drawings to provide additional information for installation on site. The system automatically produces cut length lists for cable pre-cut.
