Pathfinder

Flexible umbilical
Available in white or clear or silver
Extendable sections
Wide range of fitting options

The Pathfinder system from OE Electrics has been designed from 25 years experience in supplying cable management products, to offer a complete floor to desk, floor to ceiling, or ceiling to desk, vertical cable management solution.

Key PATHFINDER features include :

• A unique PATHFINDER GROMMET for feeding under floor cables directly into the umbilical
• Extendable sections to allow fixed desk, height adjustable desk or ceiling termination
• A wide range of floor, desk and ceiling fixing options to provide total cable management of cables
• Internal segregation for power and data cables to comply with BS regulations
• Flexible umbilical in white or clear polycarbonate

Combine PATHFINDER with PATHWAY cable tray for optimum cable management
For full details on how Pathfinder will work for you, please download the pdf brochure.

When considering power and data cables – how much protection is enough?

PATHFINDER can do both, the choice is yours!

Ceiling to desk

PATHFINDER provides an ideal solution where power and data services are distributed in the ceiling.

Using our custom designed Ceiling Collar and Desk Flange, PATHFINDER provides TOTAL CABLE PROTECTION from ceiling void to PATHWAY cable tray

Ceiling to desk umbilicals allow greater freedom for desk positioning (below ceiling apertures), than solid power poles, where CAD floorplans and on-site installation inevitably differ.

PATHFINDER Ceiling Collar gives a clean finished look when PATHFINDER drops through false ceilings. Designed to split in half, the Ceiling Collar can be clipped around PATHFINDER after it has been hung and cables ‘zipped in’

PATHFINDER Desk Flange simply clips into a 102mm aperture, securing the base and allowing cables safe passage into PATHWAY cable tray under the desk

Standard Fixings

  • PATHFINDER Top fix
  • PATHFINDER Bottom fix
  • Rigid unbilicolumn
  • PATHWAY Adaptor

Top fix

PATHFINDER Top Fix can be: screwed to the underside of a desk top or meeting table; snapped into a 25mm hole in steel/plastic panels (such as PATHWAY ADAPTOR); or, (with intergrated wire gripper) used to tension a ceiling hung umbilical.

 

Bottom fix

The PATHFINDER bottom fixing can be; screwed to any suitable surface; used with the Pathfinder Weighted Base; or, clipped into the Pathfinder Desk Flange for ceiling hung applications.

Umbilicolumn

Where a RIGID umbilicolumn is required, support rods can be used to limit, or even prevent flexing. This feature also allows users to be creative in the design of Pathfinder routing.

Pathway Adaptor

The PATHWAY ADAPTOR* can be used to fit PATHFINDER onto PATHWAY cable tray for TOTAL CABLE MANAGEMENT
*PATHWAY ADAPTOR CAN ALSO BE USED ON COMPATIBLE TRAYS OTHER THAN PATHWAY
Check with OE for alternative/bespoke bracket

 

Umbilical

PATHFINDER segment jaws are designed to allow cables to be ‘wiped in’, or removed easily, at any time.PATHFINDER has twin, asymmetric, segregated compartments, each capable of accepting power and data cables, as well as 16mm and 20mm flexible conduits

Enclosed segments provide improved aesthetics over ‘open segment’ umbilicals

PATHFINDER Top Fix can be: screwed to the underside of a desk top or meeting table; snapped into a 25mm hole in steel/plastic panels (such as PATHWAY ADAPTOR); or, (with integrated wire gripper) used to tension a ceiling hung umbilical

PATHFINDER Bottom Fixing can be: screwed to any suitable surface; used with the Pathfinder Weighted Base; or, clipped into the Pathfinder Desk Flange for ceiling hung applications

When used with our UNIQUE Floor Grommet, Pathfinder allows TOTAL CABLE PROTECTION unequalled by any other umbilical containment system

Optional stainless steel cord guarentees protection of cables from undue tension

PATHFINDER can be extended on-site, to suit different applications, with a simple ‘PUSH & CLICK’

Where a RIGID umbilicolumn is required, support rods can be used to limit, or even prevent, flexing. This feature also allows users to be creative in the design of PATHFINDER routing.

Grommet

Designed to fit industry standard 5 inch or 128mm cutouts, the Pathfinder Floor Grommet can be used as a conventional floor pass-thru, allowing power / data cabling, including 16mm flexible conduit, to exit via the Side Lids
But, if used in conjunction with Pathfinder Umbilical, using Pathfinder Grommet Adaptor, it can even accommodate multiple 20mm data conduits as well

Industry standard size grommet allows it to be retrofit into existing raised floor apertures
OPTIONAL spring loaded clamps for 2mm – 50mm floors
STANDARD Push Fix Grips can accommodate holes from 125mm-128mm (5inch)
Foam Air Block for pressurized floors

Large centre aperture allows, industry standard, track tap-off plugs and even POWERBOX PDUs, with RCBOs installed, to be passed through the floor

Designed to fit industry standard 5 inch or 128mm cutouts, the Pathfinder Floor Grommet can be used as a conventional floor pass-thru, allowing power / data cabling, including 16mm flexible conduit, to exit via the Side Lids

“The only way to totally protect cables, is to enclose them from end-to-end. The Pathfinder System achieves that and in so doing completely removes cables from view – perfect!”

PATHFINDER – safety, practicality and aesthetics – combined!
