The Cable Tray Parts node (the CableTray.xls workbook) defines all the cable tray parts that are available in the catalog.

Almost all cable tray parts are represented by symbols. You can find which symbol is used for a particular delivered part by looking in the Symbol Definition column ((usually cell C4 of the part sheet). For example, if you look at the CT90H Bend sheet, you will see that CT90DegreeHorizontalBend,Ingr.SP3D.Content.CableTray.HorizontalBend90Deg is the symbol definition. Symbols are named after the text that precedes the period. In this example, the part uses symbol CT90DegreeHorizontalBend,Ingr.

Cable tray symbols can be defined in terms of different dimensions. In some cases, a manufacturer specifies the geometry based on face-to-face dimensions, while in other cases, a manufacturer specifies the geometry based on face-to-center dimensions.

When defining cable tray parts, remember that there are three sets of dimensions: nominal, actual, and load.

  • Cable tray parts are commonly called, or referred to, by their nominal width and nominal depth dimensions.

  • The actual width and actual depth dimensions are the real world dimensions of the cable tray part, if you used a measuring tape to measure the part.

  • The load width and load depth dimensions are the "inside" dimensions available in the cable tray part for the placement of cables. The software uses the load width and load depth dimensions when calculating allowable fill area. In the delivered parts, the load width and load depth are set equal to the nominal width and nominal depth. However, you can edit the load width and load depth dimensions if needed.

Below is a complete listing of all the properties, both common and unique, that you will see on a part sheet.

Common Properties

These properties appear for all part classes. The properties are listed here in the order that they appear, from left to right, on the part sheet.

Part Number

Type the unique identification for the part as found in the catalog data.

Part Description

Type a description for the part.

Manufacturer

Specifies the code that represents the manufacturer of the part. This property is used to track the manufacturer for reporting. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Manufacturer sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Material

Specifies the material of the part. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Cable Tray Materials sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Tray Type

Specifies the type of cable tray, such as ladder. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Cable Tray Type sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Component Type

Specifies the type of component. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Cable Tray Component Type sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Unique Properties

Unique properties appear only for certain classes. The properties are listed here in alphabetical order.

Actual Depth [Port number]

Enter the actual depth of the cable tray at the port. Include the units, such as in for inches or mm for millimeters. A part can have multiple ports, and you can enter an actual depth for each port.

Actual Width [Port number]

Enter the actual width of the cable tray at the port. Include the units, such as in for inches or mm for millimeters. A part can have multiple ports, and you can enter an actual width for each port.

Bend Angle

Enter the bend angle for the part. Include the units, such as Deg for degrees.

Bend Radius

Specifies the bend radius for the part. Include the units, such as in for inches or mm for millimeters.

Dry CogX

Type the center-of-gravity location for the part along the x-axis when the part is empty.

Dry CogY

Type the center-of-gravity location for the part along the y-axis when the part is empty.

Dry CogZ

Type the center-of-gravity location for the part along the z-axis when the part is empty.

Dry Weight

Type the total dry weight for the part.

Face to Tangent

Enter the face to tangent dimension of the part. Include the units, such as in for inches or mm for millimeters.

Insertion Depth

Specifies the insertion depth. This value is the distance between the end of the cable tray part and the location of the cable port. Only positive values are allowed. Include the units, such as in for inches or mm for millimeters.

Length

Specify the length of the part. Include the units, such as in for inches or mm for millimeters.

Load Depth [Port number]

Specifies the load depth of the cable tray part at the port. This is the depth available for cables in the tray. Usually, this is the same as the Nominal Depth value, but can be smaller if required. Include the units, such as in for inches or mm for millimeters. A part can have multiple ports, and you can enter a nominal depth for each port.

Load Depth CONCEPT

Load Width [Port number]

Specifies the load width of the cable tray part at the port. This is the width available for cables in the tray. Usually this is the same as the Nominal Width value, but can be smaller if required. Include the units, such as in for inches or mm for millimeters. A part can have multiple ports, and you can enter a nominal width for each port.

Load Width CONCEPT

Load Span Classification

Specifies the code that represents the classification of load span based on National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) standards. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Load Span Classification sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Mirror Behavior Option

Specify the mirror behavior for the part. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Mirror Behavior Option sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Nominal Depth

Enter the nominal depth of the part. Include the units, such as in for inches or mm for millimeters.

Nominal Depth [Port number]

Enter the nominal depth of the cable tray part at the port. Include the units, such as in for inches or mm for millimeters. A part can have multiple ports, and you can enter a nominal depth for each port.

Nominal Width

Enter the nominal width of the part. Include the units, such as in for inches or mm for millimeters.

Nominal Width [Port number]

Enter the nominal width of the cable tray part at the port. Include the units, such as in for inches or mm for millimeters. A part can have multiple ports, and you can enter a nominal width for each port.

Reducing Size

Specifies the reducing size dimension of the part. Include the units, such as in for inches or mm for millimeters.

Replacement Part Number

Type the part number for replacements of the part.

Rung Spacing

Specifies the rung spacing for the part. Include the units, such as in for inches or mm for millimeters.

Symbol Definition

Type the symbol definition for the part. See the Symbols Reference Data.

Tangent Length

Specifies the tangent length for the part. Include the units, such as in for inches or mm for millimeters.
