An overview of conduit and cable entry solutions for DCS furniture.

This article provides a visual overview of the various ways equipment cables may enter DCS furniture. During a distributed control system (DCS) upgrade or expansion, additional field wiring often needs to be added to either new or existing DCS furniture units in a control room. Some methods for incorporating new cables include:

 

Cable entry openings on the bottom of each cabinet:
Qty 1, 3-inch diameter opening on 26" wide AgileVIEW units
Qty 2, 3-inch diameter openings on 48" wide AgileVIEW units
AgileVIEW 3 inch opening at bottom of cabinet opening
 

Cables originating from the ceiling may enter an AgileVIEW unit through top-tier caps, using a tool such as the Greenlee sheet metal punch or cutter.
