Pathfinder

Flexible umbilical
Available in white, clear, silver or black
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 QikTray cable tray for optimum cable management

Features

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 plenum to QikTray 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’s Desk Flange simply clips into a 4” (102mm) aperture, securing the base and allowing cables safe passage into QikTray cable tray under the desk.

Technical Info

Top Mount

PATHFINDER Top Mount can be: screwed to the underside of a desktop or meeting table; snapped into a .98”(25mm) hole in steel/plastic panels (such as QikTray Adaptor); or, (with integrated wire gripper), used to tension a ceiling hung umbilical.

Bottom Mount

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

Weighted Base

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

Floor Grommet

PATHFINDER Floor Grommet is the first of its kind to enable TOTAL CABLE PROTECTION from desk to underfloor when used in conjunction with Pathfinder Umbilical.

Designed to fit into industry standard 5 inch / 125-128mm cutouts, the Pathfinder Floor Grommet can be used as a conventional floor pass-thru, allowing power / data cabling, including .63” (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 .8”-1” (20mm / 25mm) data conduits as well.

QikTray Adapter

QikTray Adapter can also be used on compatible trays. Check with OE Electrics outside these sizes for alternative/bespoke brackets.

Installation

Standard Installation

  • PATHFINDER Top Mount
  • PATHFINDER Bottom Mount
  • Rigid unbilicolumn
  • QikTray Adapter

Top Mount

PATHFINDER Top Mount can be: screwed to the underside of a desktop or meeting table; snapped into a .98”(25mm) hole in steel/plastic panels (such as QikTray Adapter); or, (with integrated wire gripper), used to tension a ceiling hung umbilical.

Bottom Mount

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

Umbili-column

Where a rigid umbili-column is required, support rods can be used to limit, or even prevent flexing. This feature also allows users to be creative in the shape of Pathfinder routing ie. spiral.

QikTray Adapter

QikTray Adapter can also be used on compatible trays. Check with OE Electrics outside these sizes for alternative/bespoke brackets.

Floor Grommet

PATHFINDER Floor Grommet is the first of its kind to enable TOTAL CABLE PROTECTION from desk to underfloor when used in conjunction with Pathfinder Umbilical.

Designed to fit into industry-standard 5″ / 125-128mm cutouts, the Pathfinder Floor Grommet can be used as a conventional floor pass-thru, allowing power/data cabling, including .63” (16mm) flexible conduit, to exit via the Side Lids.

But, if used in conjunction with Pathfinder Umbilical, using Pathfinder Grommet Adapter, it can even accommodate multiple .8”-1” (20mm / 25mm) data conduits as well.

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 0.63″ and 0.79″ flexible conduits.

Enclosed segments provide improved aesthetics over ‘open segment’ umbilicals.

PATHFINDER Top Mount can be: screwed to the underside of a desk top or meeting table; snapped into a .98”(25mm) hole in steel/plastic panels (such as QikTray Adapter); or, (with integrated wire gripper), used to tension a ceiling hung umbilical.

PATHFINDER Bottom Mount 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 unequaled by any other umbilical containment system.

Optional stainless steel cord guarantees protection of cables from undue tension.

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

Where a rigid umbili-column is required, support rods can be used to limit, or even prevent flexing. This feature also allows users to be creative in the shape of Pathfinder routing ie. spiral.

Zipper

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

QikTray Adapter can also be used on compatible trays. Check with OE Electrics outside these sizes for alternative/bespoke brackets.
