The Stays database
In earlier releases of Poles ‘n’ Wires a wire from the Conductor database could be selected as a stay wire. The properties of that wire were used to give a percentage loading on the stay.
However a stay is more than the wire—there is the anchor, attachment equipment on to the pole, insulators etc. So using a wire to model the stay is not really appropriate.
There is now a separate Stays database that you need to enter records into in order to select a Stay in the tipload or profile modules.
Access the database through File>Databases>Open menu on the main window then select Stays from the Choose Table to Display dropdown.
Of course you don’t need to select a stay from the database, you can enter just the attachment height, direction and angle to ground.
