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:
