This herringbone shaped Power and Data Rail configuration can provide power and data to any size desk and any desk brand! And if you have UPLIFT V2 rectangular 2-leg desks (with either the V2 or V2-Commercial frame), it also provides a uniform benching solution that requires no bolts or screws for simple reconfigurability of your office.
Note that the Power and Data Rail's alignment feature (post foot holes) only works with rectangular UPLIFT V2 Desks that are 42" - 80" wide and 24"- 30" deep.
Power is delivered to the Power and Data Rail configuration by means of a power infeed cable from a power source at the floor, wall or ceiling. Our hardwire power source infeed provides power to up to 16 desks from four 20-amp circuits (assumes a typical power draw of about 5-amps per desk) and requires a licensed electrician for installation. We provide you with all instructions for the electrician. From the infeed, all components easily plug together (plug and play) and daisy chain throughout the remainder of the Power and Data Rail configuration and do not require an electrician to complete.
We also offer a three-pronged plug infeed option that can power up to four desks (at 5-amps each) from a single 20-amp circuit and does not require installation by an electrician. The plug-in infeeds have a 20-amp type plug configuration. This plug configuration is required for UL listing as a recognized component rated for 20 amps. Do not bypass the 20-amp plug with any type of adapter. If necessary, the outlet should be changed by a licensed electrician to one that accepts the 20-amp plug type.
Included with each Power and Data Rail are Byrne data plate and adapter kits. These kits add the ability to install various types of data jacks or couplers such as Ethernet ports. After making wiring connections, you simply snap your jacks or couplers (not included) into the appropriate adapters, snap the adapters into the data plate, and then snap the data plate into the Power & Data Rail.
See our PDF for hardwire power source infeed information. If you choose the hardwire power source infeed, you will need a licensed electrician to hardwire the power source infeed cable. If you choose the plug-in power source infeed option you can plug it into a 20-amp wall or floor outlet. But remember, you will only be able to provide power to up to four desks using the plug-in power source infeed option.
The Power and Data Rail is compatible with any desk of any brand. However, the benching feature is only compatible with UPLIFT V2 desks. The benching does technically work with UPLIFT V1 desks, but the side to side spacing between desktops will only be about 1" instead of 4" because the desk feet are inset from the sides further on V1 desks.
Wondering how can you tell if your UPLIFT desk is a V1 frame? Take a look at the side of the frame. If you DON'T see the UPLIFT Desk logo, then it is a V1 frame. If you DO see the logo, you have an UPLIFT V2 Frame.
The Power and Data Rail is basically an extension of your wall outlets. The power will be grounded, but will not have built-in surge protection. Surge protection would be handled at the circuit breakers—or at your desks. Simply plug a surge protector into the Power Rail as you would plug it into the wall.
The rail is currently available in four colors: white, gray, black, and industrial style. Industrial style finish is made to order, requires a minimum order of 50 rails, and has a 3 month lead time.
Yes, our white glove installation experts can assemble and install the Power and Data Rail. However, if you choose hardwire, you will need an electrician to hardwire the power source infeed cable.
The power rail is compatible with any brand or make of desk. Benching the desks is only available with our UPLIFT V2 Desks and is compatible with UPLIFT 42" to 80" desktop widths and 24" or 30" desktop depths. When determining benching configurations, back-to-back desktops must be the same width, but side-by-side desktops can be different widths. (If you are creating single sided or dual sided row configurations using different length desks, contact us for help with rail to rail jumper cable lengths required. We will create a drawing of your desired configuration and determine all components, just give us a call, chat, or email).
The standard color of the duplex receptacles is black. However, you can contact us to inquire about color options available for special order.
See our PDF for hardwire power source infeed information. The Byrne 8-Trac System is rated for 20 amps allowing the use of 4 circuits with 4 line conductors, 2 neutrals and 2 grounds. The fourth circuit is isolated and dedicated and is serviced by its own line conductor, neutral and isolated ground. Under National Electrical Code (NEC) requirements, up to 13 duplex receptacles may be used per circuit, with a total of 52 available receptacles if all circuits are used, per single hardwire power infeed. The line conductors are 12 AWG and share a 12 AWG ground and a 10 AWG neutral.
This power rail system utilizes (4) circuits; (3) for general purpose that share a common neutral and ground, and (1) circuit that has a dedicated neutral and ground. This dedicated circuit is sometimes used as the "computer" circuit since it does not share a neutral conductor, thereby reducing the chance for electrical noise originating from other loads that may be plugged in. But many users plug their computers into any of the 4 circuits without issues. Byrne duplex receptacles are marked as 1, 2, 3, and 4. Receptacles marked 1, 2, and 3 connect to the three general purpose circuits and the receptacle marked 4 connects to the dedicated circuit. IF you optionally choose to only plug computers into the dedicated circuit you may need to use additional power infeeds and an electrical designer can help with this - as a general rule, you can assume 250W (2.08A) for each computer receptacle and 180W (1.5A) for each general purpose receptacle when calculating for each 20A circuit.
Yes, you can by contacting us to place a custom order. We don't offer it online because this is not a common configuration, but the rail is designed for it. Some users need a Power and Data Rail without outlets or ports in order to route power and data across an area where there aren't desks or other things that need to be plugged in.
