Electrical and Fiber Optic Cable Management
The CMS011 zip-tie style cable ties (supplied in bags of 100) are releasable and are typically used to bundle cable looms. They are designed to be used with the CMS010 cable tie bases (supplied in bags of 250), which allow the cable bundles to be secured on the optical table or work surface. This tie base has countersunk clearance hole for 1/4"-20 (M6) screws, allowing them to be affixed directly to the table's surface. Please note that the CMS010 bases require low-profile cap screws
The CMS022 P-clips (supplied in bags of 10) can secure cable looms with diameters up to 19 mm (0.75"). This P-clip base has a clearance hole for 1/4"-20 (M6) screws, allowing them to be affixed directly to the table's surface.
Our PFS01 and PFS02 self-adhesive cable clips are useful for securing small diameter electrical cables, as well as fiber optic patch cables. They feature a self-adhesive base for easy installation, and flexible nylon construction for durability.
Thorlabs offers two types of fabric hook-and-loop (Velcro) cable wraps. The CVS4 is a 4" strap for up to ~ Ø1" (thumb sized) bundles of cables. It has a metal rivet and through hole near the end of the strap for a 1/4" (M6) caphead screw for mounting to an optical table or optical breadboard, as shown to the right.
The CMS020 is 5 m long roll of Velcro fabric. The fabric has hooks on one side and loops on the other. Simply cut the fabric to the length that is desired and loop it around the cables or fiber optics to create a bundle.
Easy Method to Label Any Cable or Bundle Clearly
Fine-Tipped Pen Included
The CMS021 Cable Identification Ties (supplied in bags of 100) enable electrical and fiber optic cables to be bundled and labeled. They feature a zip tie design with a maximum cable size of ~Ø20 mm (0.78"), and a 25 mm x 7 mm (1.0" x 0.27") surface, thus allowing cables and bundles to be clearly labelled. A pen is included with each bag.
The T1508 is a test lead holder for wires up to 0.210" (5.33 mm) in diameter and has 14 slots for cables. It is ideal for holding fiber optic patch cables.
The T2708 is a test lead holder for wires up to 0.450" (11.43 mm) in diameter and has 9 slots for cables.
The cable racks are made from cold rolled steel with a baked enamel finish. The wall mounting holes are separated by 3" (76.2 mm). Both racks are 11" (279 mm) long and extend outward from the wall by 3.5" (88.9 mm).

FSR1 Reel Shown with 5 m of Ø900 µm-Jacketed Fiber
The FSR1 is a storage reel for fibers with Ø900 µm jackets. It allows quick and easy organization to any fiber-sourced optical setup. The FSR1 has a 1/4" (M6) counterbore so that it can be mounted or stacked on a standard breadboard. We also offer fiber clips, which allow a Ø900 µm or Ø3 mm fiber patch cable to be secured to any smooth, clean surface.
This trunking provides a permanent solution for routing and securing electrical and fiber optic cables. It is supplied in lengths of 1 m (3.2 ft), with a 50 mm x 50 mm (2" x 2") cross section. It is is ideal for use in cabinets and control panels, as well as on optical tables or similar work surfaces.

Colored rolls of vinyl tape are ideal for color coding fibers, cables, tools, and samples. The semi-gloss finish can be written on with permanent marker, and the tape can be used in environments from 40 °F to 170 °F (5 °C to 76 °C), although it is best to apply the tape at room temperature.
