New ez-Calc Software Takes The Strain Out of Wire Mesh Grip Selection
Little Neck, NY, November 10, 2006 - Leviton's new ez-Calc software CD takes the pain out of selecting wire mesh safety grips and lets users choose the most appropriate wire management device for their application requirements. ez-Calc's intuitive pull-down menus guide users through the product selection process in just a few simple steps. Users can search by grip family (i.e., pulling, strain-relief or support grips), grip style (e.g., high load, standard duty, indoor and outdoor, etc.) or application (e.g., pulling overhead transmission lines) and the software returns a list of all matching products complete with a product description and diagram. Users who know the cable diameter size simply enter this information in the appropriate cell on screen. Where the cable diameter is unknown, a simple mouse click directs the user to the software's cable diameter calculator and it calculates the required cable size based on the known cable attributes.
Once the product catalog numbers are returned by the system, users can access the specification sheet for the selected product through a pop-up window which links to Leviton's online ez-Find(TM) product guide. The software also offers a Competitive Catalog Number Tab. By clicking on this tab, users can enter any competitive product catalog number and receive information on the corresponding Leviton wire mesh product.
ez-Calc also enables users to select connection grips for Leviton's Black & White(TM) line of straight-blade and locking plugs and connectors as well as its line of IEC 309 Pin and Sleeve plugs and connectors.
Leviton offers a comprehensive line of wire mesh safety grips, including pulling grips, support grips and strain-relief grips. Leviton's line of pulling grips are reusable tools for pulling insulated conductors or bare wires, cable, nylon and wire rope, and fiber optic cables. Both flexible eye and rotating eye attachments are available. Leviton support grips distribute the weight of vertical or sloping runs of electrical and fiber optic cable, metal rods, tubing or hose over the entire length of the grip so that the cable is not subject to damage. Leviton strain-relief grips are used when connecting cable or flexible conduit to electrical enclosures and equipment to prevent pullout at the terminations.
