The Cable Tray Sample Data for Variable Angle Bends.xls workbook available on the customer support web site defines a variety of cable tray angle bends that are available in the catalog.

Cable tray angle bends 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). Symbols are named after the text that precedes the period. For more information about symbols, see the Symbols Reference Data Guide available from the Help > Printable Guides command in the software.

To place adjustable cable tray parts of standard angles, use the required codelist values in the ComponentType column in the CT90ADJHBend, CT90ADJVBend, and CT0to25ADJHBend sheets. These sheets are in the Cable Tray Sample Data for Variable Angle Bends.xls workbook.

Add the ComponentType codelist value to the DirectionChangeCableTrayComponentTypes.xml file. The DirectionChangeCableTrayComponentTypes.xml file is delivered to [Reference Data Folder]\SharedContent\Xml. For example, to place a 60 degree horizontal bend, add the following .xml code to the DirectionChangeCableTrayComponentTypes.xml file:

<HorizontalBend>

<CodelistValue DefiniteAngle = "" AngleFrom = ""> 75</CodelistValue>

</HorizontalBend>

After you update the .xml file, bulkload the Cable Tray Sample Data for Variable Angle Bends.xls workbook in append mode.

You must specify the ComponentType codelist value for the following standard angles: 15 degrees, 30 degrees, 45 degrees, 60 degrees, 75 degrees, and 90 degrees). Otherwise, Smart 3D does not place the component, even if the part exists in the catalog.

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

Enter 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

Specify 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

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.

Component Type

Specify 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.

Barrier Thickness

Enter the thickness for the barrier part.

Bend Angle

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

Bend Radius

Enter 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.

Insertion Depth

Enter 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]

Enter 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 Width[port number]

Enter 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.

Load Span Classification

Enter 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.

Part Data Basis

Enter an appropriate codelist number from the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Cable Tray Part Data Basis sheet.

Reducing Size

Enter 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.
