Wire Sizes

Allows you to create wire sizes and wire size groups. Opens the Wire Sizes dialog box:

Wire Sizes Dialog Box


Group Section

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

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

New: Creates a new group.

Delete: Deletes the current group.

Rename: Renames the current group.

Wire Size Section

Each row in the grid lists a wire size in the group.

Size: The size of the wire. The size can be any text that you want. The size is used when selecting the wire in other dialog boxes. It is also used in the feeder callout.

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

The units of area are intentionally left undefined. The default values are square inches. You can use any units you want, but be sure they match the units used for conduit area.

New: Creates a new wire size. The new wire 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 wire size.
