Question: what is the max number of cables that can be ran in this to comply with data center standards?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. There is not a maximum number of cables per se, but rather a point where the trough will be overfull. We are guessing that might be somewhere around 24 CAT5 cables. Also Of consideration is the weight of the cables and the types that are being run. For instance, CAT6 cabling typically weighs more than CAT5 cable, which may reduce the number of cables that can be bundled. One should also avoid over-bundling cables or stacking multiple bundles, as the weight of the cables on top may crush the cables below. CATx cable should not be run on top of fiber optic cable for the same reasons. Other consideration include, avoiding kinks and sharp bends, avoiding applying too much pressure on cables when bundling, and isolation of cabling from electromagnetic interference (EMI) - power cords, fluorescent lighting, etc.
