[September 18, 2020] New Cable Management System Combines Flexibility, Protection, and Ease of Installation
Now there’s a simpler, better way to route fiber optic cable from overhead trough into data cabinets or equipment racks.
New from Amphenol Network Solutions, FlexTrax provides an ideal combination of flexibility, ease of installation, and most importantly, superior fiber protection for this essential cable management application.
What is FlexTrax?
FlexTrax combines the flexibility of split tube with greater ease of access than slotted duct, significantly reducing the potential to pinch or bend a fiber compared to current vertical cable management methods.
Users simply shape FlexTrax as required to created secure drops from overhead trough into cabinets or racks. Once fiber is placed within FlexTrax, attached gates enclose and protect fiber within the cable path. Exiting is a simple matter of guiding fiber out of FlexTrax to nearby equipment.
Made from lightweight, durable materials, FlexTrax simplifies installation, provides a greater level of flexibility, securely protects fiber optic cables, and erases the shortcomings of traditional components.
Better than Traditional Systems
With slotted duct, users must snap on covers to protect fibers once it is installed. FlexTrax utilizes attached gates that simply enclose the fibers in the cable management, eliminating the potential for damage to unprotected jumpers from loose duct covers.
Similarly, when installing split tube cable management, accidental pinching of fiber cables is a constant concern. FlexTrax is significantly easier to handle. Its design all but eliminates this potential for damage, since the cable path remains open until the installer manually closes the gates once fiber is secure.
Installation is Simple
Current solutions often require a combination of slotted duct and flexible tube, with adapters required to transition between the two. FlexTrax eliminates the complexity and cost of this approach, with simple brackets engineered for mounting applications to Amphenol Network Solutions WaveTrax ® or other cable management systems. (These include surface mounting clips, end clamps for trough connections, and C-clamps for flat or round surfaces, for example).
Users can purchase FlexTrax as needed for the application based on estimated length required. Installation is simple and dynamic, allowing users to customize a solution to fit specific requirements.
