Customer Labeling for System Logic Cage/Books

The figures illustrate a symbolic or non-language sensitive method for identification and installation of logic cards within a system. A means to identify logic type and installation locations through the use of universally recognized symbols or shapes is provided for logic cards or devices designed for the untrained user. Written instructions that require language translation are avoided using this method of assembly or install indicators.

Fig. 1 identifies symbols and their associated logic card functions.

Fig. 2 illustrates the functional elements of the identification system. The symbol on the logic card latch 1 identifies each logic card's function. The label on the side of each logic card 2 identifies a card install location in the logic cage or adapter logic card. The label on the logic cage 3 identifies the card function that can be installed in a logic cage slot. Matching the referenced symbol on a logic card label 2 to the symbol on a logic card slot 3 or to the symbol on the adapter card latch 1 provides the required assembly instrution.
