Creates a new cableway run or duct bank in your model using properties that you specify. You can access the New Cableway dialog box by going to the Electrical task, selecting the Route Cableway command, and then selecting <New Cableway> from the Run option on the ribbon.

Standard

System

Displays or defines the system for the cableway. The last system that you selected is the default. Select More to display all defined systems. You can create a new system in the Systems and Specifications task.

Cableway

Displays or defines the name of the cableway that you are creating. The name is based on the Name Rule selection. If you want to type a new name for the run, in the Name Rule box, select User Defined, and then type a name for the run in the Name box.

Name Rule

Specify the naming rule that you want to use to name this run. You can select one of the listed rules or select User Defined to specify the run name yourself in the Name box.

Specification

Displays or defines the specification for the cableway. Specifications are assigned to systems in the Systems and Specifications task. Only those specifications that are allowed in the system that you selected appear. You define specifications in the reference data.

If you select the DBS-0 specification, Slope option is displayed. If you select a specification that allows barriers, then the software displays the Barriers tab.

For more information on defining specifications, see the Electrical Reference Data Guide, available from the Help > Printable Guides command in the software.

Number of Barriers

Defines the number of barriers included in the cableway. If you select a specification that allows barriers and you define several barriers greater than zero, a Barriers tab appears.

Slope

Defines the slope for the duct bank. Enter a value to route a sloped duct bank, or select Not Sloped to route a duct bank without slope.
