CPI increases cable density for data centres.

Chatsworth Products Inc (CPI) has released a new cable pathway tray that it says will increase surface contact area for network cables by 400%.

The OnTrac Shaped Wire Mesh Tray in intended to create

point-to-point cable pathways for data centres and network equipment rooms,

with vastly increased density of cabling.

The OnTrac Shaped Tray uses a unique flattened cross wire

design, that is able to reduce pressure and strain by 68% for cables that come

in contact, which in turns allows the Shaped Tray to increase cable support and

contact area, while still implementing the same installation techniques,

splices, supports and accessories as CPI's Standard Wire Mesh Tray.

"This is a win-win for CPI," said Michael Moore, product manager

for CPI's Open Architecture Systems. "OnTrac's new Shaped Tray is an

alternative premium wire basket tray offering over CPI's current Standard Tray

by providing increased cable support along with reduced cable pressure and

strain relief, thus increasing network cable performance at no additional


The Shaped Tray has been designed to meet environmental

standards, such as LEED, with a 100% recycled steel construction, and a

pre-galvanized finish to remove issues around post production chemical cleaning

and plating, as well as application concerns about zinc whiskers.

The OnTrac Standard Tray, which uses round cross wires, will

still be offered as part of the OnTrac Wire Mesh Tray System at the same cost

as Shaped Tray.
