Cable Pro Web software will automatically calculate minimum conduit size.


The calculation of conduit size is based on the method and space factors from Standard AS/NZS 3000 [1] (see image below).


To determine the number of cables that can be installed inside a conduit the following data is required:

1. Conduit internal diameter to work out cross-sectional area.

2. Cable diameter to work out cross-sectional area.

3. Number of cables to be installed to determine space factor.
