Siemon unveils RouteIT cable pathways
The system of wire mesh cable trays and mounting accessories is designed to provide flexible and easily deployed pathways for overhead, under-floor and wall-mount applications in the data center and throughout the entire network infrastructure.
September 29, 2009 -- Siemon has introduced its RouteIT cable tray system, comprised of wire mesh cable trays and mounting accessories. The system is designed to provide flexible and easily deployed pathways for overhead, under-floor and wall-mount applications in the data center and throughout the entire network infrastructure.
The RouteIT cable tray system is offered in an elliptical wire construction that increases the surface area of the tray cross-members by 400%, maintains Siemon, decreasing cable strain and deformation that can negatively impact cabling and overall network performance. Also available in standard round wire design, the trays feature an all-steel welded construction for reliable support of maximum cable capacities. Both oval and round wire designs have rounded edges at critical points and a snag-proof "t-welded" top wire construction to prevent cable damage.
The wire mesh cable tray is supported by a line of RouteIT accessories. Multiple accessories maintain cable geometries and minimum bend radius requirements around corners and as cables enter or exit the pathways.. This line includes a proprietary "vertical up" accessory that maintains proper bend radius as cables are routed upwards from under-floor pathways, protecting channel performance in mission critical data center applications.
Under-floor tray supports come in various configurations, including mounting pedestals, brackets for multi-level pathways and vertical supports designed to mount tray independently of raised floor assemblies. Also included is a seismic-rated under-floor mounting bracket that integrates both vertical pedestals and horizontal tray support into a single unit.
Overhead mounting accessories enable center-mount hanging support for all tray sizes and side-mount trapeze-style clips, which can be individually removed and reinstalled to allow side-loading of cable. Triangular wall-mount brackets are also available for all tray sizes.
The RouteIT cable trays are available in an array of sizes and configurations to support nearly any data center and network pathway configuration. Offered in 9.8 ft (3 meter) sections, options include 2 in. (52 mm), 4 in. (102 mm) and 6 in. (152 mm) tray depths and widths ranging from 4 in. (103 mm) to 24 in (610 mm). Standard tray finishes are pre-galvanized silver and black powder coat. Additional finishes are available upon request.
The RouteIT cable tray system was designed to integrate with Siemon's VersaPOD data center cabinet and RS series racks.
