Snake Tray was the pathway chosen and Installed at a large data center in Guatemala City owned and operated by Telefónica, the Spanish owned largest service provider in Central and northern South America.  The chief engineer chose 201 Series Snake Tray for his data cabling and 801 Series Power Mega Snake to distribute power to his cabinets. He said (translated from Spanish) “The instalation was quicker and neater than we even thought possible, and next to the Snake Tray pathways, the previously installed competitors products look like a toys.”

The engineer chose the products with the help of Eric Sadler, Snake Tray’s engineer in charge of Latin America, and Juan Carlos Solares of the company Diagnasa, another engineer who represents Snake Tray locally in Guatemala.

We expect that Telefónica will use Snake Tray solutions in other data centers in other countries this year.

Snake Tray is pleased to announce its new current monitoring power reception module that allows data center managers the ability to observe the current of four independent power receptacles either numerically displayed on the device or offsite using HTML protocol. Data center managers can now easily set alarm criteria for circuit overloads. Module integrates with all Snake Tray cable trays or can be mounted on cabinets and racks.

Most any solar panel installation worth its salt, whether on the roof or on the ground, should feature secure mounting for the panels and a secure and protective raceway system to manage the dozens, hundreds or even thousands of cables.Choosing the right mounting and racking system might seem like your biggest task, but don’t forget about cable management, too.

By William Feldman
Most any solar panel installation worth its salt, whether on the roof or on the ground, should feature secure mounting for the panels and a secure and protective raceway system to manage the dozens, hundreds or even thousands of cables. The issue heard, probably around the globe, is “What do we do with all these wires?”

When Snake Tray, a manufacturer of cable management systems, wanted to install solar panels on the roof of its headquarters in Bay Shore, N.Y., to reduce its electric bill, right off the bat it ruled out using conduit to route the cable because it is expensive and labor-intensive to install and often requires de-rating cables to compensate for the excessive heat buildup inside the conduit.
