 Cat6 Standard
I am having a Systimax cat6 installation carried out. For my reference, can you tell me what the bend radius is and also what the maximum depth is, that cables can be laid on top of each other, Thanks in advance.

Dear Barry,

According to the Systimax ND3351 April 2003 manual (Network Design), the minimum bend radius is 4 times the diameter of the cable (page 4-61) and the maximum depth of 4 pair cables should not exceed 6 inches (page 4-58).
