Pulling Configuration

The relative position of the cables in the conduit in a multiple cable pull is important because it affects the weight and distribution of the cables and, therefore, affects the normal force between the cables and the conduit The position of a smaller neutral cable is disregarded in determining the pulling configuration for a pull with two cables. For a pull with two cables, a triangular configuration is assumed.

Three Cable Pull

TRIANGULAR
occurs when:

CRADLED
occurs when:

Four Cable Pull

DIAMOND
occurs when:

CRADLED
occurs when:

Where:

  • D = Inside diameter of conduit

  • dx = 1.05 x largest cable

IMPORTANT: The configuration for all triplex cable pulls is triangular. The configuration for all quadruplex cable pulls is diamond.
