WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., Jan. 15, 2016 — The new Adjustable Cable Runway by Chatsworth Products (CPI) is designed to create a highly flexible point-to-point pathway to easily support cables and fiber in data centers, telecommunication rooms and other spaces where cabling enters or exits the pathway.
CPI’s Adjustable Cable Runway features movable Cross Members, which allow components and accessories to be installed at various points along the runway, simplifying the alignment of cabling above racks, cabinets and cable managers. The Cross Members are attached to Runway Stringers by two thread-forming screws, which once loosened, allow the Cross Members to slide easily across the Runway Stringers. Cross Members may be added, removed or adjusted throughout the lifetime of the data center.
“Not only are installation times reduced, the flexibility allows for quick modifications as needs change over time, offering exceptional value,” said Duke Robertson, CPI Product Manager of Open Systems.
Advantages of CPI’s Adjustable Cable Runway include:
• Features movable Cross Members – simplifies moves, adds and changes
• Includes tool-less accessories – provides significant labor cost reductions
• Complements other CPI Cable Runway Systems – adapts to any data center or computer room setup
• Ships assembled or unassembled – requires less space for inventory storage
“This design allows greater flexibility in aligning cable drops to rack cable managers and cable entry ports in cabinets, while maintaining cable capacity and load bearing requirements. Combined with our tool-less radius drops and pathway dividers, installers will benefit from improved installation efficiencies, including faster time to deploy and reduced labor costs,” stated Sam Rodriguez, CPI Sr. Product Manager of Cabinet & Thermal Management Systems.
Additionally, the Adjustable Cable Runway allows data centers and facilities to meet ANSI, TIA and EIA installation standards for copper and fiber cabling, while promoting proper bend radii, helping to preserve data transmission integrity and prevent signal degradation. It is also designed with insight into key Grounding and Bonding practices.
The Adjustable Cable Runway is also compatible with CPI’s Universal, TELCO and UL Classified runway systems and can be joined with other Cable Runway accessories to create turns and transitions to avoid obstacles and provide an organized pathway for cables around the facility.
