Cable management refers to an important step during the installation of building services (ie electrical services) and the subsequent installation of equipment providing means to tidily secure electrical, data, and other cables. The term is often used interchangeably to refer to products used for the purpose of managing cables or to the workmanship carried out to cables whilst being installed.

The purpose of cable management is two fold: to support the cables whilst being routed through the building from Point A to B (often called containment), and to make subsequent management of the cables through the lifetime of the installation easier.

Typically, products such as cable trays, cable ladders, and cable baskets are used to support a cable through cabling routes. The IT industry has special needs because, unlike heavy power cables, data cables often need to be added, moved, or removed many times during the life of the installation. It is usual practice to install “fixed cables” between cabling closets or cabinets. These cables are contained in cable trays etc and are terminated at each end onto patch panels in the comms cabinet or outlets at the desktop. The circuits are then interconnected to the final destination using patch leads. The difficulty is that these patch leads are installed, removed and reinstalled many times during the life of the installation.

Cables can easily become tangled, making them difficult to work with, sometimes resulting in devices accidentally becoming unplugged as one attempts to move a cable. Cable management is important in many fields, such as IT, communications, power distribution, facility wiring, local area networks, and so on.

When cabling for voice communications, you want to be certain that your service company follows all codes and understands every aspect of the procedure.

SMM ‘s cable installers possess a minimum of 3 years experience and can connect your organization with voice communications quickly and effectively.

We certify all cable when we are finished, so you are guaranteed that your new cable will work for years to come.

A power cable is an assembly of two or more electrical conductors, usually held together with an overall sheath. The assembly is used for transmission of electrical power. Power cables may be installed as permanent wiring within buildings, buried in the ground, run overhead, or exposed. Flexible power cables are used for portable and mobile tools and machinery..

Modern power cables come in a variety of sizes, materials, and types, each particularly adapted to its uses. Large single insulated conductors are also sometimes called power cables in the industry.

Cables consist of three major components, namely conductors, insulations, protection. The constructional detail of individual cables will vary according to their application. The construction and material are determined by three main factors:

Working voltage, which determines the thickness and composition of the insulation;

Current carrying capacity, which determines the cross-section size of the conductors;

Environmental conditions such as temperature, chemical or sunlight exposure, and mechanical impact, which determines the form and composition of the cable jacket enclosing conductors.

Project Consultation:
We undertake a comprehensive analysis of your project’s power requirements; system voltages, amperages, battery back-up, load distribution, protection, monitoring and alarms.

Engineering and Design:
Information gathered during initial consultation is used to calculate the necessary rectifier configuration and proper battery back-up system, voltage converters and rack accessories. A comprehensive project proposal is then submitted to you for approval with a detailed diagram of the proposed custom power system.

Rack Assembly:
All components are installed and pre-wired into a 19″ or 23″ relay rack.

Testing:
Each rack component undergoes rigorous “burn-in” testing individually, and the assembled rack system is again fully tested under various simulated site load and function conditions to ensure maximum reliability.

Documentation:
Custom user manuals are provided with each system, consisting of detailed operation and troubleshooting instructions for each system component, complete schematic diagrams, and a wiring interconnect diagram of the system as a whole.
