Cable trace

A cable trace is used to manage cable sections, closures and terminators. The cable trace itself has no geometry. Any cable sections, closures and terminators can be assigned to a cable trace.
In NET Engineering, users have the option of defining cable traces themselves. The form is opened by double-clicking in the “Cable trace” field in the cable section, closure or terminator form, or in Industry Model Explorer > FO network > FO cable trace.
