Concept & Benefits

Faster, safer and more cost-effective: the trend towards pre-assembled systems

Ever shorter time frames for moves, adds and changes raise the question of how to carry out installations even more quickly, more safely and more cost-effectively. Installation often has to take place during current operation and needs to be executed without costly on-site work and disruption, and as far as possible without any outside contractors. Neither the quality of the solution (maximum availability requirements) nor its performance should be forfeited in the process.

Datwyler’s modular trunk solutions provide the perfect answer.

Pre-assembled trunk cables are fabricated using high-performance cable products which are supplied in combination with different leg lengths and modules or connectors. The products are delivered in the lengths requested by the customer, with customized imprints on the single cables, and have already been tested and certified in accordance with the latest standards.

This provides installers and operators, particularly in data centers, with products which make it possible to install even extensive systems to the highest quality in a very short time.

Length definition / determination

     The following criteria are decisive
for all Datwyler copper trunks:
L =  
Length between dividers / fixing points 
= purchase order length
A = 
Type of assembly side A: 
as required / depending on application,
legs graded in length or of equal length
B = 
Type of assembly side B:
as required / depending on application,
legs graded in length or of equal length

Checklist: Project planning with copper trunks

Do you need the copper trunks for today or future needs?
1GBase-T, 10GBase-T, ...

Please choose the right copper cable type.
Choose the cable type - taking into account the requested number of single cables and their Category.
Flex cables are particularly flexible in terms of packing density but have higher attenuation - their maximum link lengths are a little bit shorter!

Please choose the right modules or plugs for the planned application.
Category 5e, 6, 6A, 7 or 7A?
For Class D, E, EA, F or FA

Please choose the suitable patch panel.
KS, MS, MPS, ...?

What will be the length of the requested copper trunks?
Where do you want to install it: in cable trays above the racks or in the false floor? Please consider the diameter, the weight and the admissable bending radius of the trunks! 

How do you want to route the cables inside the distribution rack to the patch panels?
• side-fed from right? 
• side-fed from left?
• centred from behind?
• or ... ?

The single cables ("legs") can be graded in length, depending on how the trunk cable will be fixed inside the rack.
The "legs" may all have the same length - with enough reserve up to the farthermost connecting point.
Excess cable lengths can be laid in a tray behind a 19“/1U cable management panel.

Customer-specific imprint / labelling?
Available on request for all copper trunks.

Please consider some extra time for the pre-assembly in your timetable.
