  • Publication number: 20150359138
    Abstract: A detachable guiding mechanism is selectively disposed inside an electronic device and located above a half-height expansion card of the electronic device. The detachable guiding mechanism includes a bridging component and a guiding component. The bridging component includes at least one connecting portion. The guiding component is detachably assembled with the bridging component. The guiding component includes a contacting surface, a first guiding surface, a second guiding surface and at least one fixing portion. The contacting surface contacts against or abuts adjacent to an upper edge of the half-height expansion card since the detachable guiding mechanism is located above the half-height expansion card.

  • Publication number: 20150252813
    Abstract: A backflow prevention device includes a plurality of flaps that are connected pivotally to a casing of a fan. When a blade unit of the fan rotates to generate an airflow entering the casing via an airflow inlet and exiting the casing via an airflow outlet, the flaps are driven to pivot away from the blade unit to open positions, where the flaps serve as stator blades for the fan. When rotation of the blade unit is stopped, the flaps are driven by a reverse flow directed toward the airflow outlet and the blade unit to pivot toward the blade unit to closed positions, where the flaps close the airflow outlet to prevent air from entering the casing via the airflow outlet.

  • Publication number: 20130264029
    Abstract: A heat dissipating module includes a heat dissipating member and an air flow guiding mechanism. The air flow guiding mechanism includes a base, an air guiding plate and a stopping structure. The base is disposed on a side of the heat dissipating member, and the air guiding plate is pivoted to the base. The stopping structure is disposed on the base. A side of the stopping structure abuts against the air guiding plate, so as to allow the air guiding plate to rotate in a first direction and to stop the air guiding plate from rotating in a second direction opposite to the first direction.

  • Patent number: 8517054
    Abstract: By using a base in cooperation with a moving board, a first flowing area formed by a plurality of openings on the base may be partially blocked by the moving board moving relative to the base, thereby forming a second flowing area that provides different flow resistances. The flow resistance of an adjustable flow resistance device can be adjusted easily and dynamically, without replacing to another device. The flow resistance of the device may also be adjusted to various predefined default settings precisely and speedily by further applying a positioning mechanism that utilizes various predefined positioning holes or a rotary element.
