Drumming Reports


Paneldes can generate drumming reports which can inform you of the number of drums of conductor you will need for your model and from which drum to obtain each conductor.

File information

  • Paneldes drumming lists are DBASE 3 compatible database files.

  • The files will be named "YourElecdesProjectNameWIREDRUM.DBF" and "YourElecdesProjectCABLEDRUM.DBF" for wires and cable respectively.

  • The drumming databases will be generated automatically in your Elecdes project directory.

  • One of each type of drumming database only will be allowed per project.
