The module performs calculations of both multi-conductor cables and single conductors dependent on conductor size, insulation type, diameter and
usage with a very simple user interface.
Both the conductor's and cable's sections are integrated into Volts' conductors and cables databases. These databases are 100% user definable.
Although the conductor's database is derived from NEC® Chapter 9, Table 8 and Table 310-13 specifications, they can be fine tuned to suit your exact
The cable tray selections are congruent with NEC® Section 392.9 and include ladder, ventilated trough, solid bottom, ventilated channel and solid channel
cable trays utilizing their standard sizes also described in Section 392.9.
Simply select either a conductor or cable, add them to the selected items display, select a cable tray type and press the equal button. Volts'
cable tray sizing module correctly displays the cable tray size, the corresponding NEC® Section utilized in its calculations and any additional regulations required.
A very informative and graphical
report can be obtained after the analysis calculation is accomplished. Additionally, the entered cable / conductor information can be saved and retrieved
for future comparison or analysis.
Cable trays can also be sized from Volts' main circuit load analysis module as part of the worksheet.
