The Cabling.xls workbook defines all the cable parts that are available in the catalog. Below is a complete listing of all the properties, both common and unique, that you will see on a cable 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

Specify the part number for the cable part.

All part numbers must be unique across the entire catalog.

Part Description

Type a description for the cable.

Unit Weight

Specifies the unit weight of the cable.

Minimum Bend Radius

Specifies the radius below which the cable should not be bent.

Cable Diameter

Specifies the diameter of the cable.

Number of Conductors

Specifies the number of conductors in the cable.

Unique Properties

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

Armor Type

Type the armor type for the cable.

Back Shell Part Number

Specify the part number for the backshell.

Back Shell Part Description

Type a description for the backshell.

Cable Category

Type the category for the cable, such as Power.

Cable Covering

Type the covering for the cable.

Cable Sheath Material

Type the sheath material for the cable.

Cable Type

Specify the type of cable.

Commercial Type

Type the commercial type for the cable.

Conductor Arrangement

Type the arrangement for the cable, such as 3 Core Cable.

Connector Part Number

Specify the part number for the electrical connector.

Connector Part Description

Type a description for the electrical connector.

Family

Type the family of the cable.

Formation

Specify the formation of the cable. For example, type 3 x 95 mm2.

Impedance

Type the impedance value for the cable.

Insulation

Enter the type of insulation for the cable.

Insulation Material

Type the insulation material for the cable.

Insulation Type

Enter the type of insulation for the cable.

Insulation Voltage

Enter the voltage value for the cable.

Load Rating

Enter the load rating for the cable.

Mode

Type the mode for the cable.

Nominal Loss Characteristics

Type the nominal loss for the cable.

Number of Fibers

Type the number of fibers for the cable.

Outer Insulation Material

Type the material that covers the outside of the cable, such as PVC.

Power Capacity

Type the power capacity of the cable.

Rated Voltage

Specify the voltage rating of the cable.

Receptacle

Specifies the part number for the electrical receptacle.

Resistivity

Type the resistivity value for the cable, such as 0.190 Ohm/1000m.

Shielding

Define the shielding for the cable.

Size of Conductors

Type the cable size in wire gauge units.

Wire gauge expressed in AWG is convertible to kcmil. However, because AWG only goes to 4/0, anything above that cannot be converted from kcmil to AWG. If you have a situation where the wire gauge is larger than 212 kcmil (4/0 AWG), and specify that the value is converted from kcmil to AWG, the software will display <Undefined> for the size.

Specification

Type the specification for the cable.

Stranding

Type the stranding for the cable.

Temp Rating

Type the temperature rating for the cable.

Voltage Rating

Type the voltage rating for the cable.

Wire Gauge

Type the wire gauge for the cable.
