FlexTrax eliminates the complexity and cost of this approach, and provides a more secure, protective path for fiber that’s significantly easier and safer to install.

Amphenol Network Solutions, a leading global provider of connectivity, power distribution, and cable management products, today released FlexTrax™, a unique vertical cable management solution engineered specifically to address the challenge of safely and protectively routing fiber optic cable from overhead trough to equipment cabinets and racks in data centers, telecom, and other applications.
With FlexTrax, users simply route fiber inside the fully adjustable FlexTrax path, then close attached gates for secure protection. This straightforward design virtually eliminates the possibility of pinching, bending, or otherwise damaging fiber during and after installation.
Featuring a flexible, customizable construction, FlexTrax connects simply to overhead trough (such as Amphenol Network Systems WaveTrax) using standard mounting brackets, creating an easy-to-install, safe path for fiber.
Traditional cable routing from trough to racks—typically one of the more common locations for damage to fiber optic cable—includes slotted duct and split tubing. Both of these options create installation challenges and increase the likelihood for fiber damage. With split tubing, initial setup can be cumbersome, with the potential for pinching fiber when inserting and enclosing cables inside the tube. More costly slotted duct features snap-on covers that create installation difficulties and often remain loose.
“In addition to less effective components, a typical installation also requires adapters to combine slotted duct and flexible tube,” said Bert Powel, Product Manager. “FlexTrax eliminates the complexity and cost of this approach, and provides a more secure, protective path for fiber that’s significantly easier and safer to install.”
Additional FlexTrax advantages include:
- Made of lightweight, durable materials for long-term reliability
- Simple cable exit to network equipment via multiple locations
- Sold by the foot—only purchase what the application requires
- Compatible with all standard trough systems and equipment racks/cabinets
