  • Publication number: 20210022275
    Abstract: A data processing device includes an internal volume for housing electromagnetic interference emitting devices. The data processing device further includes a first electromagnetic radiation absorbing vent. The data processing device further includes a second electromagnetic radiation absorbing vent. The first electromagnetic radiation absorbing vent and the second electromagnetic radiation absorbing vent delineate a gas flow path through the internal volume.

  • Patent number: 10555440
    Abstract: An apparatus, an information handling system (IHS) and a method for supporting air flow management in a rack includes attaching a baffle made of a non-porous material with vertically-spaced apertures or air flow directing (AFD) sections with flanges that direct cooling air flow from heat dissipating electronic components of the rack towards a rear of the rack. The baffle is attached to a rear section of a chassis of the IHS. The baffle provides physical separation of (i) a cold aisle located towards a front section of the rack and the electronic components inserted into the rack chassis from (ii) a hot aisle located towards a rear of the rack. The flanges of the AFD section folds inward towards the electronic components to create a funnel for receiving a flow of cooling air from the hot aisle.

  • Publication number: 20190281711
    Abstract: In accordance with embodiments of the present disclosure, an apparatus may include an enclosure comprising a material impermeable to fluids, an ingress vent integral to the enclosure and including a desiccant, and an egress vent integral to the enclosure. The ingress vent and egress vent may be configured such that, through natural convection of air, air ingresses from an exterior of the enclosure to an interior of the enclosure via the ingress vent and is dehumidified by the desiccant during ingress, such air after dehumidification thermally interacts with a physical item enclosed in the interior of the enclosure such that a temperature of the physical item increases and a temperature of the air decreases, and such air after cooling egresses from the interior to the exterior via the egress vent.

  • Patent number: 10093450
    Abstract: A height-adjustable shock pallet includes a lower deck and an upper deck. A central portion of the upper deck is sized to receive a rack-mounted information handling system (IHS) for shipping. Air bags attached between the lower and upper decks are selectively inflatable to protect the rack-mounted IHS during transport and deflatable to position the upper deck proximate to the lower deck for unloading. A controller can detect a tilt of the upper deck and differentially inflate or deflate respective subsets of the air bags to rebalance the upper deck. The controller maintains the rack-mounted IHS horizontal to prevent tipping during transport. Integral or attachable caster wheels can enable repositioning of the height-adjustable shock pallet with the air bags deflated.

  • Publication number: 20180272917
    Abstract: A clamping device secures an equipment rack during shipping. The clamping device includes a gripping portion having first and second surfaces positionable along opposing sides of a respective one of a front and rear lateral logistic bar. The clamping device also includes a clamp mechanism attached to the gripping portion for movement between a disengaged position and an engaged position to selectively engage the first and second surfaces to the opposing sides of the respective one of the front and rear lateral logistic bars positioned adjacent to an equipment rack within a carrier shipping enclosure. A mounting feature is attached to the gripping portion to hold one end of a longitudinal logistic bar positioned along a lateral side of the equipment rack.

  • Patent number: 10023099
    Abstract: A shipping apparatus utilizes logistic bars attached laterally across a carrier shipping enclosure such as truck trailer or shipping container. The logistic bars can engage tracks attached to lateral sidewalls of the carrier shipping enclosure. One or more equipment racks are positioned behind one of the lateral logistic bars. Another logistic bar is placed behind the one or more equipment racks. Each of the equipment racks are secured in place by clamping devices positioned along a respective lateral logistic bar to be proximate to a respective corner of the equipment rack. Longitudinal logistic bars are engaged to a pair of the clamping devices that are on opposing lateral sides of the equipment rack. The shipping apparatus provides a rigid structure that is appropriately positioned without damaging components within the equipment rack and preventing swaying during transport of the equipment rack.
