如何保持台式機電纜的整潔?


6

我有一個塔式計算機機箱,站在桌子下面的地板上,桌子下面和桌子上面都有很多外圍設備。我們說的是路由器,交換機,IP電話適配器,配電盤,電話(是的,是複數的),外部硬盤,UPS,打印機,強制性的顯示器(很想將其更改為雙顯示器設置,這只會添加電纜),鼠標,鍵盤,2.1揚聲器套裝,等。顯然,這導致各種設備之間來回穿插許多電纜。儘管反复嘗試減少混亂,但這種情況很快就變成了rat's nest of cabling,我一直不得不跟踪電纜穿過混亂的地方,以找出它們引向何方。

其中一些物品需要使用自己的壁疣變壓器,其中一些變壓器相對較重。

不想想做任何會導致桌子永久損壞的事情。桌子本身大約2厘米厚。

我不介意電纜本身是可見的,但是我確實很難知道哪個項目使用哪條電纜連接到何處。這些項目都不是無線的,出於各種原因,我想保持這種狀態。

我如何使佈線井井有條?理想情況下,該如何進行佈線?

One idea is to use the paper clips to organise your cables.

To know which item uses which cable, use bread tags to put a label at both ends of every wire and cable.

  • Cable Ties. - This is what they are designed for really. Got lots of cable that you need to keep together neatly and tuck them all out of the way? If you have lots of wires and cables going to the same place (i.e. the back of a PC) you can just grab them all together and stick a cable tie around them (you could even use string which would have the same affect) and then you can easily move the cluster of cables out of the way in one chunk rather than having hundreds of different things trailing around the place.

  • Tie knots in long cables - If you have some cables dangling around the floor or on your desk that are really long and wind all over the place - think about tying them in a knot to firstly reduce the length of the long wires and secondly help in keeping them untangled from each other. Follow this link for a cable knot that prevents tangles.
    Instead of knotting you could simply fold and then tie int he middle with string, tape, or cable ties.

  • Use labels - You can use many different things for labels for organizing which cable belongs to what. You could use adhesive labels, bread tags (as mentioned in the other answers), masking tape, string and a piece of paper, also colored tape like electrical tape. My personal favorite would be the color coding - you could make a key that would remind you which wire belongs to which color and then you won't have to worry about writing really small or ink rubbing off.

  • Use old credit / membership cards - Much like the bread tag and clip binders, cut some holes in an old credit card or membership card (would be easier to use a hole punch) and then cut a slit to the edge of the card so you can get the cables in, you can then have multiple wires parallel to each other and you could even write one the card what each cable is, below is a picture that gave me this idea which is from MakeUseOf. enter image description here

I hope one or some of these are of assistance, slightly better than my first answers as well I hope!

The grey cable used for house wiring (in the UK at least) has 2 different colours in it.

I stripped it, and then cut the coloured insides to 7cm lengths, then wrapped it around. I use the colours to code what it is holding.
