Can I run power cables on a ladder rack?
Yes you can but you do not want to run them over or right next to your low voltage cables. It is best to separate the high power and low voltage cables. Since the ladder rack is 12 inches wide you have the room to run the power cables on one side of the ladder rack and the low voltage cables on the opposite side. This will give you the separation you need to ensure your network signals are not interrupted or inferred by the power cables.
