  • Patent number: 11490542
    Abstract: Adapters for mounting patch panels to data center racks enable the patch panels to be repositioned with respect to the racks in a rotatable or pivotable manner. A patch panel mounted to an adapter has a jack or port on one side of the adapter, and a jack or port on another side of the adapter. With the adapter aligned at an obtuse angle with respect to a front edge of a rack, a component may be inserted into the rack, or removed from the rack. Subsequently, the adapter aligned at an acute angle, or any other angle, with respect to the front edge of the rack. Mounting patch panels to the adapters enables the patch panels to be maintained outside of the rack, and increases a number of components that may be installed within the rack, or space or volume that may e occupied by components within the rack.

  • Patent number: 10420248
    Abstract: An apparatus for protecting cables outside a server casing is between a cable managing assembly and a sliding bracket. The cable managing assembly is slidable on the bracket to allow manual operations to the server (in the working position) or can be in a nonworking position. The protecting apparatus includes locking member, latching member, and latching portion. An end of the locking member is rotatably mounted to a casing, the other end defines a locking pin. The latching member on the sliding bracket has a latching slope corresponding to the locking pin. In the working position, the latching portion and locking member can be separated, the locking member is thus released, and the sliding bracket is free to move. In the nonworking position, the latching portion resists the locking member and prevents rotation of the locking member and movement of the sliding bracket.

  • Patent number: 10317958
    Abstract: The embodiments herein describe a computing device (e.g., a storage server) that includes at least one telescoping unit which includes a plurality of removable (or pluggable) hardware components. The computing device includes a chassis which defines a form factor of the computing device. The telescoping unit, when prompted by the user, can extend vertically from a top surface of the computing device. By doing so, the pluggable hardware components are then exposed to the user who can add or replace the components. In one embodiment, the telescoping unit includes telescoping links disposed on opposite sides which are used to guide or urge the telescoping unit vertically from the chassis. Cross links may be coupled between first and second rails where one end of each of the links is coupled to a sliding member in the rail while the other end is fixably attached to the rail.
