Instrument Channel

Small size. Big Advantage.

Instrument channel is the smallest type of tray. Available as small as 4 inch width. This gives you more freedom as you route signal and instrumentation cables around equipment.


Use as a Raceway

Solid covers can be provided

Avoid damage to your sensitive instrumentation cables. Optional solid covers can turn the system into a raceway. A raceway gives you the advantage of fully protected cables, with the added benefit of a clean look to the finished system.
