  • Patent number: 10852786
    Abstract: A venting grate includes a main portion, a first venting area, and a second venting area. The first venting area is defined by first, second, third, and fourth edges. Each of the first, second, third, and fourth edges extend from the main portion. The second venting area is defined by fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth edges. Each of the fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth edges extend from the main portion. The third edge and the fifth edge extend away from the main portion of the venting grate and angle together to form a pointed edge between the first and second venting areas.

  • Patent number: 9915085
    Abstract: Systems and methods that may be implemented to secure a bezel over a face of an information handling system chassis by using magnetic force to draw in and retain a ferromagnetic bezel latch pin in a latching position relative to complementary latch structure of the chassis. The disclosed systems and methods may be implemented in a manner that minimizes functional intrusions on the front (or other side) of a chassis enclosure to which a bezel is secured, that reduces the number and/or complexity of mechanical features that are conventionally employed, and/or that presents both an intuitive and pleasant user experience for the end user.

  • Patent number: 9426920
    Abstract: A disk drive carrier includes a frame and a shuttle. The frame includes supports configured to be in physical communication with a disk drive, a first index tab to align the disk drive with a connector on a backplane of a server tray, and an arm configured to engage the disk drive with the connector in a horizontal orientation. The shuttle includes a base including a channel, edges extending from the base and forming an enclosure to receive the frame and the disk drive in a vertical orientation, a fastener connected to the server tray through the channel, and an alignment key configured to slide along the first index tab and to align the disk drive with the connector. The disk drive shuttle is configured to horizontally move along the server tray and to enable the disk drive to connect with the connector in the horizontal orientation.

  • Patent number: 8885339
    Abstract: In accordance with the teachings of the present disclosure, an information handling system comprises an information handling resource and a chassis. The chassis includes a slot configured to receive the information handling resource. The chassis also includes a first rack ear and a second rack ear, each configured to facilitate removal of the information handling system from a server rack system. The first rack ear and second rack ear are further configured to interface with a first cover configured for placement on a first side of the chassis and a second cover configured for placement on a second side of the chassis, respectively. The first cover acts as the top of the information handling system and the second cover acts as the bottom of the information handling system when the information handling system is in the tower configuration.
