Using this solution engineers can plan safe and efficient cable pulling systems. There are tools for automatically calculating tension and sidewall pressure.
Pull Planner is a specialized Windows app for designing complex cable pulls and conduit systems. It allows you to mitigate various risks and optimize construction projects. Please note that Pull Planner is distributed on a commercial basis. There is no free trial version.
Designing cable systems can be complex and challenging, especially when pulling multiple strands through long conduits or around tight bends. Incorrect planning may result in damage to personnel and hardware. This software is designed to help users safeguard from potential risks by estimating cable tension values and other physical parameters.
There are other programs for planning cable layouts like Plan Um.
Users are prompted to select the correct type of cable and conduit to receive accurate results. The number and radiuses of bends can be adjusted as well.
It is possible to specify a custom coefficient of friction. This parameter measures the resistance to sliding between two surfaces, a critical factor in determining cable pulling tension. There is a comprehensive database of COF values for different materials.
