Siemon Launches Cable Tray Mounted Racking Solution for Data Centers

Mounts directly to overhead ladder rack or cable tray, providing 4U of 19" rack mount space above cabinets and racks without consuming data center floor space

Cable Tray Mounted Racking Solution for Data Centers

WATERTOWN, CT — Siemon today adds a new cable tray rack to its line of data center 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 additional floor or cabinet space, making it ideal for use within Zone Distribution Areas (ZDAs) or Equipment Distribution Areas (EDAs) in data centers.

Used with copper patch panels or fiber 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 center 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 center thermal efficiency and airflow by minimizing 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, including Siemon's RouteIT system, and can be can be mounted below, flush or above cable tray in both parallel and perpendicular configurations. The product includes Siemon's high capacity -turn twist-lock cable managers, which lock into place quickly without use of screws or mounting tools and can be easily located to provide customized cable management.

Siemon's cable tray rack provides 4U of standard EIA/ECA-310-E 19 inch (480mm) mounting space and offers a 60lb (27kg) load rating to easily accommodate a wide range of panel types. Available with #12-24 tapped rails for the Americas and M6 cage nuts for other global markets, this cULus 1863 and RoHS-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 center environments.
