Pull-Planner™ 3000 Cable Pulling Software

A Program for Cable Pulling Tension Calculation
and Conduit System Design

Pull-Planner™ 3000 for Windows™ calculates cable pulling tension and sidewall pressure around bends using the pulling equations. Tension estimates are useful in designing conduit systems and planning cable pulls. Such planning can save time and money by minimizing splices, vaults, pulling set-ups, etc., while ensuring installation tensions that won't damage cable.

Pull-Planner™ 3000 for Windows™ follows the proven approach of the earlier Pull-Planner™ 2000 and Pull-Planner™ II versions by approaching a pull in "segments." Each segment normally consists of a straight section followed by a bend. Browser (html) "HELP" menu links throughout the program explain data entry and terminology. If you are familiar with cable and conduit terminology, very little training is required to run the program.

Pull-Planner™ 3000 for Windows™ is available exclusively as an Internet download. It will run on numerous Windows™ operating systems. Total installation will consume 4 to 8 megabytes of hard drive space.

Features for Faster and Easier Calculations
  • Newest Windows™ version of the well-known Pull-Planner™ 2000 and Pull-Planner™ II.
  • Drop down menus and command button controls for intuitive operation.
  • Accepts pull and cable data saved under previous Pull-Planner™ 2000 version.
  • Large, easy-to-use customized cable database (up to 100 cables) now accepts lengthy cable descriptions.
  • Runs metric or English units.
  • Mouse point and click feature speeds calculations.
  • Clipboard feature allows transfer of data into word processing document.
  • Standard Windows™ interfaces for printing, saving, and coloring screen.
  • Large and updated friction coefficient database, including newer cable jacket types.
  • Plus Much More!
Additional Features and Performance
  • Calculate and recalculate tensions and sidewall pressures automatically during easy changes of friction coefficient, incoming tension, or pull direction.
  • Establish a custom cable data file with your common cables by name, type, weight, and OD. Just click on these standards for quick data entry.
  • Print pull details and calculation results to Windows™ printer, or copy and paste data through the clipboard to other Windows™ programs.
  • Determine "maximum" allowable pulling tension and/or sidewall pressure and "flag" screen or printer output when maximum tension is surpassed.
  • Determine conduit fill, cable configuration, and jam ratio for any combination of wires and cables in a pull.
  • Add, subtract, change, or insert conduit segments in a pull for analysis. Change segment data by directly clicking on the data cell.
  • Save all details of a pull (cables and conduit design) to disk for future recall.
  • Change cable data without re-entering conduit system details. Allows quick recalculations in the same duct bank.
  • Calculate the quantity of Polywater® Lubricant needed for the pull.
  • Use built-in friction coefficient database that includes a broad range of common cable jackets, conduits, and pulling lubricants.
  • Use "dual" friction coefficients if desired, one at high and one at low sidewall bearing pressure, plus establish a sidewall pressure for the transition.
  • Use a different friction coefficient for each segment in the "variable" friction mode.
  • Use a pushing force on cable entry or a push/pull device in the cable run.
  • Back-calculate an effective friction coefficient from field measured tensions--useful for additional calculations in similar environments.
  • Insert a "redirection" roller in the run.

Windows™ based program (runs on numerous Windows™ systems). Monitor (VGA for color options). Printer optional.
