Conduit Sizes

Allows you to create and modify conduit sizes and conduit size groups. Opens the Conduit Sizes dialog box:

Conduit Sizes Dialog Box


Group Section

Conduit size groups are used to organize conduit sizes. In general, each group corresponds to a different conduit material type. All of the conduits in a specific ampacity configuration must come from the same group.

Group: Sets the current group. The conduit sizes listed all belong to the current group.

New: Creates a new group.

Delete: Deletes the current group.

Rename: Renames the current group.

Conduit Size Section

Each row in the grid lists a conduit size in the current group.

Size: A description of the size of the conduit. This value is for informational purposes and is used when selecting the conduit in other dialog boxes. It is also used in the feeder callout.

Area: The area of the conduit. The conduits are sorted based upon the area. The conduit fill is calculated using the area.

The units for this value are left undefined intentionally. The default values are square inches. You can use any units you want as long as they match the units used for wire size area.

Standard: Whether the conduit size is used when automatically sizing. Conduit sizes that do not have this value checked can be chosen manually, but they will not be used automatically.

New: Creates a new conduit size. The new conduit size will be added to the bottom of the list when it is created. When you close and reopen the dialog box, the size will be sorted to the correct location in the list based upon the area.

Delete: Deletes the current conduit size.
