Concept Search - What can I type?
For a concept search, you can enter phrases, sentences, or full paragraphs in English. For example, copy and paste the abstract of a patent application or paragraphs from an article.
Concept search eliminates the need for complex Boolean syntax to inform retrieval. Our Semantic Gist engine uses advanced cognitive semantic analysis to extract the meaning of data. This reduces the chances of missing valuable information, that may result from traditional keyword searching.
As illustrated, the proposal relates to an efficient support of electronic component carriers (1ABC, for example 19-inch-type) in an enclosure (2, rack).
Under operating conditions, the carriers (1) are inserted into enclosure slots, wherein cable connections are fixed to the rear side of the carrier (1).
During servicing, it is desired to remove the carrier (1) from the enclosure (2) without disconnecting the cables; the carrier (1) must however be supported in proximity to its original location.
The door (3) of the enclosure (2) has inside a pair of mounting bars (4,5) with holes (6) on both sides; the removed carrier (1) is hooked into this holes (6) by specially formed brackets (7). The cables can stay connected with the removed carriers. Vertical adjustment of the mounting bars (4,5) and/or the holes allows to support the removed carrier (1) at the same height as it was inserted in the enclosure before servicing.
The solution is particularly useful for enclosures (2) that are located in areas where space is limited or that do not have swing frames to support the carriers (1) during servicing.
