Conduit Standards For Datacom Cabling
We as IT guys don’t often have to think about cabling, let alone what the bend radius is supposed to be for fiber cable going through EMT (Electrical Metallic Tubing, Aka hard conduit). Well, I found myself with the question of what should be bend radius be on 3″ EMT for fiber instillations. I found this article from Lan Shack. It gives you the formula to calculate all this goodness for fiber as well as your standard ethernet cables. I also didn’t realize that code covered how full a conduit should be…did you? This article covers fill ratios also and even adds tidbits left off of the standard papers!
