How to use Glands to Define the Entry Point to a Panel
Glands specify the point of entry of a cable into a panel.
From the gland the cable will then route to either the centre of the panel or to a termination point if that is also provided. When a cable has a gland, the connection distance from the conduit or tray to the gland is used instead of the distance to the centre of the panel.
Glands provide the following benefits:
Routes are more visually accurate.
Route lengths are more accurate.
The connection distance to the desired conduit or tray is more likely to be within the Device to Duct setting compared to using the distance to the centre of the panel.
See How to Place an Accessory for the general procedure.
Set the LOCATION to the name of the panel containing the gland.
You can place other glands in the same panel for other cables.
