Cable and Conduit Installation Calculators

The Math / Science

Metal clad cable is either a smooth or corrugated factory assembled cable containing insulated circuits (wires).   The relationship between the weight of Metal Clad Cable and the length is shown in the attached table based on industry standards.. 

The relationship between length of conduit, level of difficulty, size of Metal Clad cable and the time to install comes from industry standard numbers.  The relationship between length of cable, size of cable and the weight comes from industry standard numbers.  The following tables are the basis of the weight, length, and time estimates in this calculator.
