How many cables can fit into a vertical or horizontal cable manager, or through an opening in a NetShelter cabinet?

Published date: 11 March 2019

Issue:
Customers need to know approximately how many cables will fit into specific cable management products.

Product Line:
NetShelter SX, NetShelter Cable Management

Environment:
All versions and serial ranges.

Cause:
Need to manage cables neatly in a cabinet or rack.

Resolution:
The document attached below shows estimated fill rates for various APC cable management products and openings in NetShelter cabinets.

Fill ratio is the percentage of available space that's unused because there are air gaps between the cables. The fill ratio factors in this unused area.

REV5 is an abbreviated version of Rev4. It has fewer columns so it opens nicely into a legible document.
