cable management for rack mounted gear
Tom - video producer from Colorado Springs, CO – Verified Buyer
So you just rack mounted a bunch of cool gear. It looks nice in front, but you still have the cable spaghetti nightmare hanging out the back. You need lacer bars. Not only will you make everything neat and organized - the lacer bars also act as strain reliefs. So if a cable gets pulled on it doesn't get ripped straight out of a piece of gear. The things you want to remember are: don't make bends with too tight of a radius or kink cables, don't put zip ties on too tight or they'll crush shielding/insulation, and don't run signal and power cables too close together. I like the 2 inch offset lacer bars because they give you a little extra clearance behind the gear, yet they're low profile enough to fit inside the lids of my portable SKB shock mount racks.
