Hi,

I am still trying to pin down the number of Siamese cables I can get in a 2 inch schedule 40 PVC and 2" EMT.

Here is what I have come up with thanks to the previous thread.

SIAMESE CONDUIT FILL CALUCLATION BASED ON 40% FILL

Siamese Cable/Combo (RG59 & 1 Pair #22 AWG 1/2" Diameter)

1/2"=0.50"

Pi R(squared)=(.50*.50)*3.14159=

.785" area.

40% of 2" EMT = 1.342"

1.342"/.785"=1.7 cables

40% of 2" Schedule 40=1.316"

1.316"/.785"= 1.6 cables

I measured the actual cable and it is 1/2".

this does not jive with the follwoing calculations done at Belden cables site:

Thanks for any replies..
