Cable Data
Cable Types
Build up library of cable types.
Add data about cable types
Retrieve data about cable types

The following fields are mandatory:
Cable type code
Brief description
Conductor CSA
Conductor diameter
Number of cores
Overall diameter
Weight
Voltage rating
This cable type data can also be imported using the Data Import Wizard
Note: If you want to delete a cable type, then you must first delete any cores that have been created first. In the
database the cores are child records of the cable type. Highlight each core row and use the scissors icon to delete.
Then save when the cores have been deleted and you will be able to delete the cable type using the scissors icon
again.
