System Surveyor Adds ‘Flex Cabling’ Feature to Upgrade Cable Infrastructure Design Capabilities
System Surveyor’s cable path tool estimates cable lengths for a bill of materials and provides details for installation and cable pulls.
AUSTIN, Texas — System Surveyor announces it has enhanced the cable infrastructure functionality in its customer engagement and system design platform.
Security professionals can now easily and quickly configure cable runs between planned devices on the digital software, according to the company. The cable path tool estimates cable lengths for a bill of materials and provides details for installation and cable pulls.
The System Surveyor infrastructure system type connects cabling (CAT5, access control, HDMI, fiber, etc.) with the many other systems the platform supports. These include video surveillance, access control, intrusion detection, fire alarm, audio-visual systems, IT and communications, and more.)
Using the new “flex cabling” feature, the company says system integrators, enterprise security staff and other industry experts can:
- Show exactly how cable paths will run through a building
- Bundle multiple cable types within the same cable path run
- Estimate cable path lengths, enabling comparison with industry standard design guidelines and including allowance for up and down segments
- Determine the total length of each cable type required for a project
- Run a cable path report that breaks out each run showing connected devices, each cable element in the cable path, and termination details on each end.
“Our new flex cabling feature was driven by customers, who can now more precisely design cabling on their digital floor plan and automate a bill of materials,” says Chris Hugman, System Surveyor CEO. “Many of our customers use outside contractors for system cabling. This enhancement makes it even easier to collaborate, plan, and capture cabling ‘as-built’ records with these important business partners. It all translates into faster installs, lower costs, and higher customer satisfaction.”
As part of the company’s ongoing commitment to its user community, System Surveyor says it has also added 25 new icon elements for easy drag-and-drop system design. These include elements in high demand such as video doorbells, health scan kiosks, and vape sensors that are gaining significant adoption in the industry.
