Hello all.....I am wondering if anybody out there would have the weights for 25', 50', 75', and 125' socapex cable. Got a coworker who is doing weight calculations for the rig and is trying to be as accurate as possible.

Thanks

Gauge? Number of conductors?

In common usage you can often find 12/19, 12/14, 14/19, and 14/14.

Weight decreases roughly in that order.

I usually estimate that 50' of mult+breakout equals ~50lbs, but that's certainly not an exact number.

If it's 2K, I always figure 1# per foot.

Don't forget to include data cable, clamps, brackets, and the weight of the motors and other rigging as well, if you're figuring the total weight per point.
