MonoSystems, Inc. (Rye Brook, NY), a North American manufacturer of wire management products, recently announced its J-Tray, designed as a continuous pathway that installs using the company's patented, "infinitely-linkable" J-Hook System. With a focus on design aesthetics, the J-Tray pathway offers an array of fittings and is available in mill-finish aluminum, or may be painted to customers’ color choice. An optional cover is also available.
The UL listed J-Tray is the latest in a series of innovations offered by MonoSystems. The tray installs using the company's patented, award-winning linkable J-Hook System. The J-Hook System allows the ICT designer or installer to easily add additional pathways, making it expandable.
MonoSystems says the new J-Tray "follows the lineage of the J-Hook System, going from the 2” inch cable support of the J-Hook itself, to the [series'] Cable Support Extender which offers 12” inches of support, and then to the continuous pathway of the J-Tray."
The system's tiers may be color-coded to help with pathway ID. Product applications include high-performance communications cabling, security, Voice over IP, Power over Ethernet (PoE), and fiber-optic cabling. The J-Tray is also billed as a "perfect alternative to armored Cat 6a [cabling] for emergency-lighting PoE cables."
“J-Tray offers a solution that is often missing from other manufacturers’ offerings," contends Mark Ross, director of marketing for MonoSystems. "It offers a lower material costs, less labor, installation flexibility, and best possible support for high-performance cables. It offers ease of installation, but fits in tight spaces, and can be used to easily identify a pathway, and allows one to add another run by simply snapping in J-Hooks and adding the J-Tray parts in the hooks," Ross added.
The MonoSystems J-Tray was introduced last month at the BICSI 2020 Winter Conference and Exhibition in Tampa, FL "to enormous praise," reports the company.
“The BICSI show was a huge success for this product introduction,” says Jordan Handler, president of MonoSystems. "Many conference attendees came up to our booth to see the J-Tray because they heard about it on the floor of the show or on various online media. The product has already been specified by many system designers."
