Siemon Launches Overhead Patching Solution for Data Centres

Cable Tray Mounted Racking Solution for Data Centers

Global network infrastructure specialist Siemon, has added a new cable-tray mounted rack for overhead patch panels to its line of data centre cable management solutions. Designed to mount directly to overhead ladder rack or cable tray, Siemon's cable tray rack delivers 4U of easily installed and accessible 19" rack mount space above cabinets and racks without consuming floor or cabinet space, making it ideal for use within Zone Distribution Areas (ZDAs) or Equipment Distribution Areas (EDAs) in data centres.

Used with copper patch panels or fibre enclosures, the cable tray rack can increase cabling density without sacrificing orderly cable management. By moving patching fields out of the cabinet itself and into easily accessed overhead spaces, ongoing moves, adds and changes are simplified. This flexibility can also help speed the deployment of new data centre equipment, allowing pre-cabled connectivity to be installed in overhead spaces and simply connected via patch cords as new cabinets and/or equipment is added.

Siemon cable tray rack's overhead configuration can also improve data centre thermal efficiency and airflow by minimising obstruction of equipment cooling features due to cabling congestion within the cabinet.

The new product's unique design allows it to be easily attached to all common overhead cable tray and ladder rack systems and can be mounted below, flush or above cable tray in both parallel and perpendicular configurations. The product includes Siemon's high capacity quarter-turn twist-lock cable managers, which lock into place quickly without use of screws or mounting tools and can be easily located to provide customised cable management.

Siemon's cable tray rack provides 4U of standard CEA-310-E 19 inch (480mm) mounting space and offers a 27kg load rating to easily accommodate a wide range of panel types. Supplied with M6 cage nuts, this RoHS and cULus 1863 compliant rack is constructed using a durable 12 gauge cold-rolled steel frame with a smooth black powder coat finish for a clean appearance within data centre environments.
