  • Publication number: 20010019002
    Abstract: A cable storage device has a reel rotatably mounted in a frame. The reel has a hub that rotates with the reel. A connector panel has a plurality of connectors for interconnecting with an end of the cable on the reel. The connector panel will fit on a reel docking station for rotation with the reel. The connector panel also fits on a frame docking station while the reel is not to be rotated. A locking member is engaged by the connector panel when the connector panel is mounted to the reel docking station to allow rotation of the reel. The locking member is biased to a locking position when the connector panel is removed from the reel docking station. A cable presence sensor locks the reel against rotation if substantially all of the cable is pulled from the reel.

  • Patent number: 5825962
    Abstract: An optical fiber splice housing is provided for connection to a distribution frame adjacent to the rear of an optical fiber raceway unit. The splice housing comprises a cabinet having a front end defining a cabinet height and a cabinet width and a rear end defining a rear facing opening. The front end of a cabinet is adapted for connection to a distribution frame adjacent the rear side of the raceway member, and the cabinet height is not greater than the raceway height while the cabinet width is not greater than the raceway width. The splice housing can therefore be connected to a distribution frame adjacent to the rear side of a raceway unit without using additional vertical space in the frame and access to a splice tray mounted on the splice tray shelf can be had through the rear facing opening of the cabinet.

  • Patent number: 5823646
    Abstract: A wall mount cabinet is provided that has a front door that pivots downward and a side door that pivots out to the side. The side door is latched to the front door such that opening of the front door also opens the side door.

  • Patent number: 5778130
    Abstract: An optical fiber connector housing or facilitating the cross-connection or interconnection of optical fibers is provided having upper and lower plate members spaced apart from one another with the front edge of the lower plate member extending further forward than the front edge of the upper plate member. A connecter panel depends generally vertically downward from the front edge of the upper plate member thereby defining a shelf portion at the forward part of the lower plate member. A door is hingeably connected to the front edge of the lower plate member thereby defining a forward cable area, at least one side aperture, and at least one top aperture forward of the connector panel.

  • Patent number: 5742982
    Abstract: A clamp assembly (10) is provided which can include first and second clamp halves (16, 18) with a base (50) mounted in each clamp path. The base has a cylindrical inner surface (54) which can clamp a cable thereto for strain relief. Alternatively, a flexible insert (86) having a plurality of cylindrical cavities (102) opening through the outer surface (100) thereof can receive a number of cables (12) to be clamped in the clamp assembly for strain relief. In another version, a plurality of nested inserts (106-116) can be provided on each base (50) allowing the selection of a particular insert dimension suitable the cable to be secured.

  • Patent number: 5674274
    Abstract: An adjustable single-pass A-V lead for cardiac pacing comprises a ventricular lead body with a ventricular electrode at its distal tip, and an atrial sheath slidably mounted over the ventricular lead body. An atrial electrode is located on a portion of the atrial sheath that is adapted to form an outwardly-extending atrial bow. A distal portion of the sheath is configured to resist sliding over the ventricular lead body so that the atrial bow is formed when a tubular, proximal portion of the sheath is advanced distally relative to the ventricular lead body. The longitudinal distance between the atrial and ventricular electrodes can be adjusted during implantation by withdrawing the sheath proximally relative to the ventricular lead body.

  • Patent number: 5628779
    Abstract: A single-pass atrio-ventricular (A-V) pacing lead includes an elongated main lead body having an atrial electrode at the distal end thereof, and includes a ventricular branch which departs from the main lead body just proximal to the tip of the atrial electrode. The ventricular branch has a ventricular electrode at its distal tip. The main lead body includes a preformed "J"-shaped portion which, following proper implantation, projects the atrial electrode against a wall of the atrial appendage. The ventricular branch includes a preformed bend which curves in the opposite direction of the J-shaped portion so as to maintain the ventricular branch generally away from the wall of the atrial appendage. The lead includes a single lumen which extends through both the main lead body and the ventricular branch, allowing the lead to be implanted using a single stylet.
