In many industries, the essential of data cable management is vital to a company’s overall network infrastructure. Employees are often required to troubleshoot malfunctioning electronic devices, and a Data Cabling Houston is one of the first things they need to check. Without cable management, employees have to sort through dozens of cables to find the right one, and then do a series of tests to determine if it is the correct one.
And Cable Products – Intelligently Designed Cable Management
And Cable Products are manufacturers and suppliers of a wide range of proprietary Cable Manager Racks. Each product is intelligently designed to optimize the physical layer of the data center while organizing cables and reducing equipment costs. In addition to improving efficiency, these products are easy to use and provide optimal cable management. Here’s how it works:
Strain relief plates
Strain relief plates are used in applications where dynamic stresses are present. These plates are often used for parallel routing of several lines of varying diameters. They are also very cost-effective, as they can be attached to lines with Network Cabling Services ties. They can be used for many industrial applications as their packing density is higher than those of cable clamps. However, if the cable diameters are different from one another, the strain relief plate may be more beneficial in these cases.
The basic body 18 of the strain relief plate is shaped as a plate with an anchoring barb-like element 23. Its end portions are cutout so that the plate-like bearing element 11 can latch on to the plate-like body. This construction allows the plate-like bearing element to be positioned at a different angle from the cable’s direction of travel. In other words, the plate-like bearing element 11 can hold the cable while it is being inserted into the plate-like bearing element.
Vertical cable management guides
A vertical cable manager uses the finger-duct method of cable management. It is typically a dual-sided unit, mounted on an open frame rack. The cable management guide will help to keep the cables neat and accessible, and it will make the installation and maintenance process easier. It consists of two separate 3-foot panels, which can be installed end to end, side to side, or in the front and back of the rack.
The VCS Vertical Cabling Section has double-sided managers, single-sided managers, and T-shaped cable guides. This section features edge-protected side openings and is available in various heights. It is
compatible with CPI Cabinet Systems. The T-shaped cable guide is an optional accessory. These guides can be used with standard 19-inch racks or with racks with extended lengths. The guide allows for cable routing and is available in two-, three-, and four-U heights.
The data center is no different. Cables are integral to almost every company’s core functions. That’s why it’s essential to properly label cables to avoid confusion or errors during the installation process. Cable labeling should be clear from multiple angles and secure, so that workers won’t accidentally connect the wrong cables. Cable ties can hold cables together, but make sure that they can be removed easily if necessary.
The easiest way to color-code cables is to use a standard scheme. Each cable should have a distinct color. Black, blue, green, and red are the standard colors used for cable coding. Differentiating cables based on their function is a good way to avoid tangles and network outages. In addition to being easy to identify, color-coding also helps prevent cable mishandling and tripping hazards.
