WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif. – January 2008 – Chatsworth Products, Inc. (CPI), a leading manufacturer that sets the BENCHMARK by providing superior structural support to organize, store and secure IT infrastructure equipment offers Evolution™ Cable Management, an engineered solution for managing high-density cabling applications.
To fulfill modern data center needs, CPI’s Evolution Cable Management delivers advanced performance by providing state-of-the-art solutions for managing high-density cabling applications on CPI open two-post and four-post Rack Systems. With enhanced interior features, CPI’s Evolution Cable Management helps maximize cable capacity and function, while the exterior presents a fresh aesthetic appeal, matching the distinct look of CPI’s popular TeraFrame™ Family of Cabinets.
In an effort to support various equipment cabling requirements, CPI’s Evolution Cable Management is available in both vertical and horizontal configurations. Evolution vertical managers come in three different widths of single and double-sided versions. The double-sided vertical managers contain moveable mid-sections that can be adjusted for greater cable volume flexibility by providing 40/60, 50/50 or 60/40 front/rear split of the interior space, giving customers the ability to match their exact space requirements. In addition, openings located on the back of the single-sided and on the middle of the double-sided vertical managers allow cables to easily transition from front-to-rear. Exterior doors come with Evolution vertical managers to help protect and hide cables. They are secured with a spring-loaded two-point latch that can open from the right or left and can be removed for improved cable access.
CPI's Evolution Double-Sided Vertical Cable Manager
CPI’s Evolution horizontal cable manager is available in a single-sided option to organize and store cables. Edge protected oval-shaped pass-through ports are located at the rear of the horizontal cable manager, allowing patch cords to pass safely from front-to-rear. The horizontal cable manager contains a snap-on door that swings up or down to easily access cables and matches the modern styling of the Evolution vertical managers doors.
Both Evolution vertical and horizontal cable managers offer a superior T-shaped cable guide design that decreases deflection when loaded with cables. Rounded edges on the cable guides and at the top of the managers protect cables as they enter and exit the interior storage space. This type of solid support and protection is especially important when deploying high-density Cat 6a cabling on rack systems.
To create a customized solution, a variety of accessories can be added to CPI’s Evolution vertical cable managers. Attach Cable Distribution Spools to provide slack management and strain relief for patch cords and jumper cables located within the managers. Create a separate pathway for fiber cables and patch cords inside the managers with CPI’s Fiber Segregation Kit. Increase space utilization within managers by anchoring cables close to the mid-section with a Cable Lashing Bar Kit. Add more moveable mid-sections to the double-sided vertical cable manager by including a Moveable Mid-Section Kit, and increase the number of fixed accessory panels in the single-sided vertical cable manager by including a Fixed Accessory Panel Kit. Patent pending accessories include the Fiber Segregation Kit, Cable Lashing Bar Kit and Moveable Mid-Section Kit.
