MagiCAD Electrical Cable tray filling ratios and cable layouts

Cable tray filling ratios and cable layouts

Evaluate cable tray filling ratios and plan cable layouts

  • Arrange cables into separate slots
  • Evaluate filling ratios for each slot
  • Examine total weight of cables

MagiCAD allows you to evaluate cable tray filling ratios and plan how cables could be laid on them. Cable layout functions can be used in early-phase planning, before a single cable tray has been modelled, or to validate a design in a later stage of the project.

Cable layouts can include up to five slots, allowing you to divide the supply cables of different systems to different sections on a tray, or to reserve extra space for future expansions. For each slot, you can define the desired width and the spacing used for the cables which are laid in it.

The total space available for the slots can be set according to the size of an existing cable tray in the project. In addition, you can view the filling percentage and width of each slot and the total weight per meter for the whole cable tray at the selected point in the system.
