[CableSpec Code] should be a unique user defined variable field to identify the template or combination of cable, jacks, item numbers, and etc.


[Cable Item Number] of the cable that will be used as a default specification. Use the [Ellipse] button to look-up an appropriate item. The [Description] will automatically be filled from the Item file.


[Cable Level Code] refers to the Level or category of cable to be used in the default spec.  The Cable Level Code is also used to call or look-up the default spec when you are defining a Cable Drop.


[Type Of Cable] is used to identify the general cable group.


[Cable Designation] is a layman reference for voice, data, split, and coax cables.


[Pairs] is used to identify the quantity of wire pairs in a single cable.


[Quantity Of Jacks] is used to store the default value for the appropriate quantity of jacks.


[Jack Type] refers to the USOC or common name of the Jack.

[Labor Factors] Tab



Labor Factors relate to the pulling and terminating of a specific cable item number.


[Default Qty For Terminations] is used to set the default quantity of terminations.


Pull Example: If it takes an average of 20 seconds to pull a 4 pair cable one foot, then enter 20 in the Pull Seconds field.  Changing from one field to another will automatically update the calculations of the Labor Factor.  When a Cable Project and Cable Drop is defined, CablePro will multiply the quantity of cable in feet by the Pulling Labor Factor.


Termination Example: If it takes an average of 2 minutes and 10 seconds to terminate a 4 pair on a 110 Block, then enter 2 in the Terminating Minutes field. Enter 10 seconds in the Terminating Seconds field. Changing from one field to another will automatically update the calculations for the Terminating Labor Factor.  CablePro will multiply the quantity of cable terminations by the Labor Terminating factor.


[Adjustment % For Secondary Cable]  A cable can be a Primary or Secondary cable.  A primary cable is usually cable 1 in a cable drop.  The primary cable establishes the base labor factor.  Each pull should only have one Primary Cable.  Secondary cables or cables pulled with a primary cable add a labor value that is represented as a percentage of a primary cable.
