Ellis Patents has once again demonstrated why they stands alone as the cable cleat market’s leading innovator – having developed an online calculator that will provide users with completely accurate specification information for any project in a matter of seconds.
The cable cleat calculator provides correctly specified cleat spacings with respect to short circuit conditions; and recommends the ideal products for that specific project.
This is achieved through a pre-programmed calculation that takes into consideration cable formation, cable size, short circuit current and the installation environment.
The questions asked in this calculator are designed to provide Ellis with the proper information to specify the correct cable cleat for your project.
The questions consider cable formation, cable size, short circuit forces and the installation environment only.
It should be noted that issues such as cable weight for vertical cable runs, thermo-mechanical forces, extreme environmental conditions (e.g. extreme temperatures, industrial pollutants etc.) and any other non-standard cable installation factors have not been considered.
Thorne & Derrick distributors for Ellis Patents should be made aware of these issues should they be present for your project.
