Polywater announced the availability of the latest version of its Pull-Planner software. The program uses Polywater's testing data to provide realistic "coefficient of friction" guidance. Pull-Planner allows users to estimate both pull tension and sidewall pressure prior to a cable pull to proactively safeguard against cable damage.

"The Pull-Planner software is integral to large-scale projects like connecting sources of green energy to the grid and helping meet the persistent, increasing demand for more energy worldwide," said Polywater President Erik Freyser. "We take pride in developing a software program that can do the math and allow users to input a range of pull scenarios. This enables project design teams to identify potential challenges and model alternative options, so they can proactively navigate them."

Polywater's latest Pull-Planner software is now available for both power and telecommunications cable installers and includes more cable jacket and conduit types commonly used in the telecommunications industry.

Additionally, the new 4.0 version of the Pull-Planner offers language options in French, German and Spanish, as well as metric and imperial measurement systems.

Freyser said, "Construction and maintenance challenges demand fast and reliable solutions. Polywater's pull-planning software combines industry best practices with our robust testing methods using real cables, conduits and lubricants. Additionally, the software utilizes our extensive coefficient of friction database, which is among the industry's largest."

Sheri Dahlke, technical director and Pull-Planner 4.0 software program manager, said: "Cable is expensive, so it's important to avoid damage of this critical asset during installation. Engineers, specifiers, and cable manufacturers appreciate having a predictive model to improve and document their designs. That's how we make an industry-wide impact while helping our customers succeed."
