Each of GSNs employees and associates have broad skills that we use to tackle complex computer related issues. These skills include: In depth knowledge of electrical engineering and design that relate to facility design In depth knowledge of electrical installation and management issues Mathematical skills to derive engineering solutions and perform complex graphical manipulations Software design skills and data modeling Software integration of AutoCAD, Microstation, Microsoft Access Database, Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Word Visual Basic, VB.Net and C programming Web design and software integration with Web content and Ftp for file transfer. Modeling and estimating services (conversion of data from prints or electronic models) Skilled operation for AutoCAD and the Microsoft Professional Suite: GSN Technical Capabilities
Underground Design Duct bank conduits are automatically generated from one guide conduit. Duct bank conduits are automatically encased by concrete. A report will list the concrete required for each duct bank run.
Underground Design Cross Sections and Automated Annotations Section marks are placed manually and their positions saved to the database so that that may be recalled when needed.
A proven technique is to use view ports to pull the cross section from one master drawing to drawings that contain several cross sections.
Designing Trays Use dwgs or dgns as backgrounds to route trays and conduits. Just draw lines and TrayMatic creates all straights and fittings automatically. Tray stacking is automatic. Offsets are computed accurately to maintain spacing. Service levels and tray type are also assigned automatically.
Connecting Equipment To Tray Conduits can be routed automatically to the nearest acceptable tray respecting cable segregation and separation or designed manually to follow the building steel. Conduit sizing is optionally automatic.
Tray Automatic Annotations Place leader lines where you want the tags to appear. Leader lines are saved in the database and tags are automatically generated.
Construction Friendly Tray Isometrics Construction friendly tray isometrics are very easy to make. Complete with legend and bill of material.. this construction drawing will become part of your standard of excellence. Example provided by CH2M Hill / Lockwood Greene
Export Model for Plant Review or Clash Detection Any or All TrayMatic electrical components are exportable to graphical formats for any Plant Design system. In some situations, surface models are preferable for plant review or for special rendering software. A solids graphical output is required for clash detection programs such as used by PDS.
Electrical Design - Cable Routing CableMatic Plus (CM+) is used to automatically route the cables, obeying the following rules: 1) NEC Tray Fill 2) NEC Conduit Fill 3) Segregation and Nuclear Safety Separation 4) Cable Route -Shortest Length Minimizing Bends CM+ uses an extremely fast cable routing algorithm that makes it practical to reroute all cables as may be needed due to raceway design changes. Manual routing or routing adjustments may also be used when there are special circumstances.
Cable List Using Spreadsheet Data Entry As a standard method of data entry, our spreadsheet program, DBView, is used for creating data. This program will extract data from the database by any combination of data columns. Work can be performed by many people focusing on different cables and different data columns.
Multi Function Cable/Equipment Data Entry This form provides a convenient method to review and update cables and equipment. The form is also useful when an individual cable route requires a manually designed route or when a route requires editing.
Cable Schedule Cable and conduit schedules can be generated with filtering and/or sorting by practically any data. Changes from the last engineering release are highlighted for both engineering review and for construction planning.
Cable Bill of Material Companies that use TrayMatic for raceway design will find that cable lengths are very accurate.
Tray Bill of Material Companies that use TrayMatic for raceway design will get a detailed tray BOM. This report can only be created by TrayMatic and can be requested from Electrical Engineering. The report can be generated for any plant or group of plant areas and should be useful for planning purposes.
Conduit Bill of Material Companies that use TrayMatic for raceway design will get a detailed conduit BOM. This report can only be created by TrayMatic and can be requested from Electrical Engineering. In this example, the underground conduits are counted. The report can be generated for any plant or group of plant areas and should be useful for planning purposes.

Modifying Termination Changes in Real Time In the perfect world, engineering will develop the wiring data in the engineering office. However, as new data arrives form vendors, changes have to be made in the field. The GSN system will alert the constructor if a termination ticket has already been printed and data has changed.
Tracking Cable Pulls Cable pulls are recorded on the cable pull installation ticket and the length and reel numbers recorded in the field office.
Tracking Terminations Terminations are recorded on the termination installation ticket and the from/to status is recorded in the field office.
R.I.T.S Method Raceway Installation Tracking System Raceway installation tracking is performed using a spreadsheet.
Cable Reel Inventory Cable reel data is entered via spreadsheets and cut lengths summed and subtracted from the length received.
Cable Progress and Inventory This report indicates status of cable pull and terminations by cable type. A summary for each service class is also included.
Summary of Benefits Easy to learn Fast 3D design Make changes quickly Accurate Bill of material High quality deliverables for construction Encourage the electrical discipline to use 3D Save time in drawing preparation for construction Support for Nuclear safety and separation analysis Construction documents linked together for consistency Works great in all phases from conception to construction Includes software for construction installation management In your proposals, proudly include that CM+ and TM are used
