Set a duct insertion

If a duct ends at a manhole, cabinet, pole, FO terminator or building, this must be documented as a duct insertion.


Start the workflow in Workflow Explorer > Duct workflows > Set duct insertion by double-clicking it, from the context menu or by clicking the mceclip0.png button in the lower right area of the workflow explorer:


or on the NET Planning tab:


An option can be used to specify whether duct insertions should be created only for the selected duct or also for its subordinate ducts.


The type of duct insertion can be selected from a drop-down list of the available duct insertion types:


The segment must be selected in the graphic that contains the corresponding duct or the duct itself is selected. The tube can be selected from the graphic or from the segment cross section.


If the segment is selected for creating the duct insertion, duct insertions will be produced for all ducts in the segment (if the "Create duct insertions for child ducts" option is activated).


After selecting the duct, you will be prompted to select the point for which the duct insertion is to be created. These are manholes, cabinets, terminators and buildings.


A message shows how many duct insertions were created and for which ducts it was not possible.


In the form for the duct, under the duct-assignment overview, the mceclip12.png button delivers the duct insertions associated with the duct.


The form for the duct insertion is presented as follows:


The segments and ducts in contact with the cabinet/manhole can be seen under Connections in the Cabinet/manhole form. Ducts introduced into the cabinet/manhole are identified by an arrow (1). If no duct insertion has been created, the duct name is displayed without a symbol (2).


The duct ending overview only provides correct results if the ducts are introduced into the manhole, cabinet or building with a duct insertion where they end.
