  • Publication number: 20190269025
    Abstract: Electronics rack door assemblies are provided to hingedly mount an air inlet or an air outlet side of an electronics rack, and be rotatable between closed and open positions. The door assembly includes a door frame, to hingedly mount to the electronics rack, with an opening to facilitate a flow of air through the electronics rack. The door assembly further includes an acoustical panel pivotably coupled to the door frame and aligned, at least in part, over the opening in the door frame. With the door frame hingedly mounted to the electronics rack at the air inlet or outlet side, the acoustical panel automatically pivots from an operation position relative to the door frame with the door frame in the closed position, to an at least partially collapsed position relative to the door frame with the door frame in the open position.

  • Patent number: 9769941
    Abstract: Modular elements removable from enclosures and employing cams forming detent features with latches are disclosed. A modular element may include a chassis body supporting electronic components. The modular element is removable from or secured to an enclosure using a latch. The latch may engage the enclosure and may remain engaged with the enclosure by being secured by interfacing with a cam. By forming the cam with a predetermined shape, a detent feature may be established with the latch to secure the latch and maintain the modular element locked to the enclosure. The latch may be disengaged from the cam by applying a disengagement motion to the cam and allow the latch to move relative to the chassis body and disengage from the enclosure. In this manner, the modular element is efficiently secured and removed from the enclosure with minimum obstruction to airflow to the electronic components.

  • Patent number: 9763355
    Abstract: A method for securing and removing modular elements employing latches is disclosed. A modular element may include a chassis body supporting electronic components. The body is in communication with a latch and a control member of the modular element. The modular element is removable from or secured to an enclosure using the latch. The latch may engage the enclosure and may remain engaged by being secured by interfacing with a catch of an arm of the control member. By connecting the arm to the control body with a living hinge, the living hinge may urge the catch into a detent of the latch to secure the latch and keep the modular element secured to the enclosure. The latch may be disengaged from the control member by applying a disengagement force to remove the catch from the detent. In this manner, the modular element is efficiently secured and removed from the enclosure.
