WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif. – May 1, 2004 – Chatsworth Products, Inc. (CPI), a 100% employee-owned leading manufacturer of structural support systems for computer and communications networks, announces five new cable management solutions.
As the leading provider of structural support systems and an innovator in cable management, CPI continues to demonstrate its industry leadership and high quality with these latest products. Each system provides critical support for cable bundles to meet customers’ unique needs and applications.
The Global Standard Pack, which combines structural support and cable management into one box, is a convenient and cost-effective system for small installations. The package contains CPI’s improved, industry-leading Standard Rack, the easy-to-use, cost-effective Global Vertical Cabling Section (GVCS) and a Rack Installation Kit for Concrete Floor. By purchasing the products as a single unit instead of individually, contractors and end users can save up to 28% in costs. As a bonus, from now until June 30, 2004, customers will also receive a free 1 RMU Universal Horizontal Cabling Section.
The MCS-EFX is CPI’s most feature-rich and largest-capacity vertical cable management solution for two-post and four-post racks. The MCS-EFX adds 2.5” of extra depth to CPI’s patented cable management fingers. With these extra-capacity fingers, IT professionals can manage up to 48 patch cords, more than double the amount of standard fingers. This solution, which enhances CPI’s already-popular MCS Master Cabling Section, is ideal for installations involving modular switches that must be cabled from one side or with angled patch panels.
The CCS-EFX is a double-sided vertical cable management trough designed for use with CPI’s Universal and Standard Racks. The CCS-EFX incorporates extra-capacity cable management fingers in front and an open trough with spin-latch closures in the rear. IT professionals can use this product to easily manage cable at the cross-connect, especially when installing angled-face copper patch panels.
Enhanced Vertical and Front-to-Back Cable Managers (sold separately) are accessories for CPI’s award-winning M-Series MegaFrame® Cabinet. Enhanced Vertical Managers allow cables to be organized by rack-mount space, making it easier to trace individual cables during moves, adds and changes. Additionally, two Enhanced Vertical Managers can be connected with telescoping Front-to-Back Managers to create a complete pathway for patch cords connecting network switches and computers within the same or adjacent cabinets.
All of the new—and most existing—cable management systems share the following features:
