The CPI Universal Horizontal Cable Management System provides an attractive and highly functional horizontal pathway for patch cords and multimedia applications using coax, copper and fiber optic cables. When used above or below patch panels, the extra-wide, contoured plastic cable guides of the Universal Cable Manager create a pathway for neatly fanning the patch cords from the patch panels and routing them to the sides of the rack. Patch cords may also be routed to the back of the rack through the flanged pass-through slot. In multimedia applications, the Universal Cable Manager provides horizontal cable routing in or between racks. After routing the cables or cords, simply snap-on the hinged cover for a clean, professional appearance. The cover opens 180° in up or down position so that cables can be accessed without removing the cover (cover may be easily removed when required). Use in conjunction with the CPI Patch Panel Wire Management Bar (PN 12176-X01) and any of CPI's Vertical Cabling Sections (11374, 11729, 11730, 12096 series Vertical Cabling Sections or 30091, 30092, 30093, 30094, 30095, 30096 series MCS Master Cabling Sections) for clean, organized cable management.
