After printing or writing the label, remove the label from the page and attach it to the signal cable, or the identification plate of the power cable. The methods for attaching labels are described in the following sections.
The label is attached 2 cm (0.79 in.) from the connector on a signal cable. In special cases (for example, to avoid cable bending or affecting other cables), other positions are allowed to attach the labels. The rectangular part with text is attached facing right or downward, as shown in Figure 1. The details are as follows:
Procedure for attaching labels
Figure 2 shows the methods and procedures for attaching labels.
Remove the label from the backing page, and attach it to the identification plate on the cable tie. The label should be attached to the rectangular flute on the identification plate, and attached to only one side of the identification plate. In an equipment room, all labels should be attached in the same way. The cable ties are bundled at 2 cm (0.79 in.) from the connectors, and other positions are allowed in special circumstances.
Cable ties should be bound on both ends of a cable. After the bundling, the finished identification plate should be on top of the cable in horizontal cabling, or on the right side of the cable in vertical cabling, as shown in Figure 3. The details are as follows:
