The Cable Tray Specification node (the Cable Tray Spec sheet in the CableTray.xls workbook) determines the specification that you access when you route a new run of cable tray, select an existing run of cable tray, or create cable tray features and parts. The six cable tray specifications that determine the specification that you access include BendRadius, Manufacturer, Material, TrayType, RungSpacing, and LoadSpanClassification.

Default Bend Radius

Type the default throat radius width. Example values for bend radii are 12in, 24in, and 36in.

Description

Type a phrase that describes the cable tray specification. For example, you can explain the purpose of this particular specification.

Fitting to Fitting Connection Part #X Component Class

Select the component class for the fitting to fitting connection part.

Fitting to Fitting Connection Part #X Component Type

Select the component type for the fitting to fitting connection part.

Fitting to Fitting Connection Part #X Quantity

Enter the number of parts required.

Load Span Classification

Specify the load span classification. This load span is based on requirements in Section 3.2 of the NEMA Standard VE 1-1991. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Load Span Classification sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Load Span Classification Practice

Specify the load span classification.

Manufacturer

Specify the manufacturer of the cable tray component. 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

Specify the material of the cable tray component. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Cable Tray Materials sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Preferred Connection Gap

Enter the preferred gap between the straight cable trays after they have been split.

Rung Spacing

Type the measurement for the distance of spacing between rungs. For example, 6in, 9in, 12in, and 18in.

Rung Spacing is applicable only for straight features and does not apply for cable tray parts, such as a turn feature.

Spec Name

Type the name to assign to the cable tray specification.

Support Covers

Specify whether the cable tray specification supports cover parts.

Tray to Fitting Connection Part #X Component Class

Select the component class for the tray to fitting connection part.

Tray Specification Type

Indicates if the specification applies to cable trays, cableways, or duct banks. "1" represents Cableway, "2" represents Cable Tray, and "3" represents Duct Bank. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Tray Specification Type sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Tray to Fitting Connection Part #X Component Type

Select the component type for the tray to fitting connection part.

Tray to Fitting Connection Part #X Quantity

Enter the number of parts required.

Tray to Tray Connection Part #X Component Class

Select the component class for the tray to tray connection part.

Tray to Tray Connection Part #X Component Type

Select the component type for the tray to tray connection part.

Tray to Tray Connection Part #X Quantity

Enter the number of parts required.

Tray Length

Enter the tray length. This tray length is used when splitting cable trays.

Tray Type

Specify 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.

Use the following attributes as inputs when querying the electrical parts catalog: component type, nominal sizes, manufacturer, material, tray type, load span classification and optionally default bend radius.
