Cable Pulling Proper cable system design includes cable pulling for conduits. By performing cable pulling analysis, you avoid being overly conservative in your design and you avoid underestimating the stress expected on the cables during installation. Accurate analysis provides accurate cost estimates to streamline construction and avoid un-necessary project delays.

ETAP cable pulling software enables multiple cables of different sizes to be pulled three dimensionally in both directions to determine the optimal starting point for each situation.

Calculations are performed for each conduit, each bend radius, and each change in 3D direction.
