The VDC Manager automates the handling and zipping process for TeraSpan’s complete line of VDC conduits. The two conduit coils are placed into the spool rims, then mounted onto the manager.

The VDC is fed through the zipper tool which mounts at the front of the unit. The VDC Manager is pulled along and the two VDC halves come together in the zipper tool with the cable/tubing/string elements inside.

The conduit is then ready for deployment. Alternatively, in tight areas, the unit may be stationary and the VDC can be pulled out.

The VDC Manager can be hitched to TeraSpan’s ”Spool Manager” to fully automate the handling of cable/tubing/string, tracer wire, and VDC.

The combined system is easily managed by one person and keeps the network construction footprint very compact. The system can be moved through narrow areas and is small enough to operate on a sidewalk.

Both the VDC Manager and the Spool Manager may be mounted on a truck or a trailer for further automation. The cart is collapsible for shipping and storage with no tools required.
