In this embodiment, a server 10 includes a chassis 100, a protecting component 200 and two power supplies 300.

The chassis 100 includes a case 110, a cover 120 and a lid 130. In order to clearly describe details in the following illustrations, three-dimensional coordinate systems are shown in the drawings as an auxiliary.

The case 110, for example, is for accommodating a hard disk (not shown) and a mother board (not shown). In detail, the case 110 includes a bottom board 111, a first side board 112a and a second side board 112b. Both the first side board 112a and the second side board 112b stand on a top surface of the base 111. Both the first side board 112a and the second side board 112b include a plurality of sliding grooves 113. The sliding grooves 113 are formed on a top edge of the first side board 112a and the second side board 112b, respectively. Each of the sliding grooves 113 includes a first sliding section 113a and a second sliding section 113b which are communicated with each other. In this embodiment, extending directions of the long sides of the first side board 112a and the second side board 112b is parallel to an X-axis of the coordinate system, an extending direction of the first sliding section 113a intersects with the X-axis of the coordinate system, and an extending direction of the second sliding section 113b is parallel to the X-axis.

The cover 120 is disposed on the case 110 so as to form at least one accommodating space 150. In detail, the cover 120 includes a side plate 121, a top plate 122 and a partition 123. The side plate 121 stands on the base 111 of the case 110, and the top plate 122 connects the side plate 121 and the first side board 112a. There is a distance between the top plate 122 and the base 111. The top plate 122 has a first surface 122a and a second surface 122b that are opposite to each other, and the second surface 122b faces the base 111 of the case 110. The partition 123 stands on the base 111 and is located between the top plate 122 of the cover 120 and the base 111 of the case 110 so that the base 111, the first side board 112a, the side plate 121, the top plate 122 and the partition 123 form two accommodating spaces 150 together. Each of the two accommodating spaces 150 has an opening 160. Furthermore, the top plate 122 has two guiding rails 122c and two first through holes 122e. The guiding rails 122c are located on a side of the top plate 122 further away from the first side board 112a than the other side, and the first through holes 122e are located between the guiding rails 122c and the first side board 112a. The partition 123 has two notches 123a located on an edge of the partition 123 further away from the base 111 than the other edge.

The lid 130 is detachably disposed on the case 110, and the lid 130 covers the cover 120. In detail, the lid 130 includes a plurality of sliders 131. The sliders 131 are slidably disposed in the sliding grooves 113, respectively. When the slider 131 slides into the second sliding section 113b through the first sliding section 113a along a disposing direction (the negative direction of the X-axis of the coordinate system), the lid 130 is securely disposed on the case 110. When the slider 131 along a detaching direction (the positive direction of the X-axis) to slide out of the sliding groove 113 through the first sliding section 113a, the lid 130 is detached from the case 110.

In this embodiment, the detaching direction of the lid 130 is along the positive direction of the X axis, but the disclosure is not limited thereto. In other embodiments, the detaching direction of the lid 130 can be along the negative direction of the X-axis.

Furthermore, the lid 130 further includes two first fastening components 132 located at a side of the lid 130 facing the base 111. The first fastening component 132, for example, is a protrusion corresponding to the protecting component 200. Details about the aforementioned relationships are illustrated thereafter.

Please refer to FIG. 2 to FIG. 5. FIG. 0.5 is a perspective view of the protecting component in FIG. 2. The protecting component 200 includes a pressed sheet spring 210, a first blocking sheet spring 220 and a connecting sheet 230. The pressed sheet spring 210 includes a fastening section 211 and a bending section 212 connected to each other, and the first blocking sheet spring 220 includes a fastening section 221 and a bending section 222 connected to each other. The pressed sheet spring 210 and the first blocking sheet spring 220 are located on the same side of the connecting sheet 230 and face each other with a distance between the bending sections 212 and 221. The connecting sheet 230 connects the bending section 211 of the pressed sheet spring 210 and the bending section 221 of the first blocking sheet spring 220.

The top plate 122 of the cover 120 is interposed between the pressed sheet spring 210 and the first blocking sheet spring 220. That is, the pressed sheet spring 210 and the first blocking sheet spring 220 are located at two sides of the top plate 122 that are opposite to each other, respectively. The fastening section 211 and the fastening section 221 are fastened to the two opposite sides of the top plate 122 together, for example by a rivet, 400 so as to form a fastening part of the protecting component 200. The connecting sheet 230 is slidably disposed in the guiding rails 122c of the top plate 122 so that the connecting sheet 230 is capable of moving towards or away from the fastening section 211 and the fastening section 221 along a Y-axis of the coordinate system, and thereby forming a movable part of the protecting component 200. The pressed sheet spring 210 and the first blocking sheet spring 220 are bent or flattened simultaneously when the movable part moves relative to the top plate 122 of the cover 120.

In FIG. 3 and FIG. 4, both of the bending sections 212 and 222 of the pressed sheet spring 210 and the first blocking sheet spring 220 are bent. In detail, the bending section 212 of the pressed sheet spring 210 are protruded from the first surface 122a of the top plate 122 of the cover 120, and at least a part of the bending section 222 of the first blocking sheet spring 220 are protruded into the accommodating spaces 150 from the second surface 122b of the top plate 122. Furthermore, when the first blocking sheet spring 220 is bent, the bending section 222 is fixed into one of the notches 123a of the partition 123 and the bending section 222 is supported by the partition 123 so that the partition 123 favorably prevents the bending section 222 from deformation when the protecting component 200 is pushed by the power supply 300.

In this embodiment, the protecting component 200 further includes two second blocking sheet springs 240 located in the accommodating space 150. Each of the second blocking sheet springs 240 has a connecting end 241 and a fastening end 242 that are opposite to each other. The connecting end 241 is connected to the first blocking sheet spring 220. The fastening end 242 includes a second fastening component 243 which, for example, is a protrusion. When the first blocking sheet spring 220 is flattened, the first blocking sheet spring 220 drives the second blocking sheet spring 240 to move upward together, and the fastening component 243 passes through one of the first through holes 122e so as to abut against a side of the first fastening component 132 closer to the opening 160 of the accommodation space 150 than the other side, and thereby preventing the lid 130 from accidentally detached from the case 110 along the detaching direction (the positive direction of the X-axis).

In FIG. 4, the connecting end 241 of the second blocking sheet spring 240 is slantingly connected to the first blocking sheet spring 220. In detail, a distance D1 between the connecting end 241 and the opening 160 is less than a distance D2 between the fastening end 242 and the opening 160. Furthermore, a distance D3 between the connecting end 241 and the base 111 is greater than a distance D4 between the fastening end 242 and the base 111. Therefore, when the power supply 300 is inserted into the accommodating space 150 through the opening 160 with the lid 130 disposed on the case 110, the fastening end 242 is pressed by the power supply 300 so as to move upward to abut against the first fastening component 132.

In order to strengthen the protecting component 200, the protecting component 200 can include a first reinforcement sheet spring 250 and a second reinforcement sheet spring 260. The first reinforcement sheet spring 250 is connected to the connecting sheet 230 and the pressed sheet spring 210. The second reinforcement sheet spring 260 is connected to the connecting sheet 230 and the first blocking sheet spring 220. When the bending sections 212 and 222 of the pressed sheet spring 210 and the first blocking sheet spring 220 are bent or flattened, the first reinforcement sheet spring 250 and the second reinforcement sheet spring 260 are also bent or flattened simultaneously. That is, the connecting sheet 230 slides along the guiding rails 122c so as to bend or flatten the pressed sheet spring 210, the first blocking sheet spring 220, the first reinforcement sheet spring 250 and the second reinforcement sheet spring 260 simultaneously.

The power supply 300 is capable of being inserted into or removed from the accommodating space 150 through the opening 160 along the X-axis. An extending direction of the first sliding section 113a is intersected with a removing direction of the power supply 300 (the positive direction of the X-axis), and an extending direction of the second sliding section 113b is parallel to the removing direction. The power supply 300 is for electrically connected to the mother board (not shown in the drawings) in the case 110 as a power source.

In this embodiment, the detaching direction of the lid 130 is the same as the removing direction of the power supply 300 so that the second fastening component 243 of the second blocking sheet spring 240 is closer to the opening 160 than the first fastening component 132 of the lid 130; thereby the first fastening component 132 and the second fastening component 243 prevent the lid 130 from being accidentally detached from the case 110, but the disclosure is not limited thereto. In other embodiments, the detaching direction of the lid 130 is opposite to the removing direction of the power supply 300 so that the first fastening component 132 is closer to the opening 160 than the second fastening component 243, and the first fastening component 132 and the second fastening component 243 still prevent the lid 130 from being accidentally detached from the case 110.

Please refer to FIG. 6A to FIG. 9B. FIG. 6A is a perspective view of the server with the lid detached from the case and a part of two power supplies disposed in an accommodating space according to the first embodiment. FIG. 6B is a partially perspective view of the server in FIG. 6A. FIG. 6C is a cross-sectional view of the server in FIG. 6A. FIG. 7A is a perspective view of the server with the lid disposed on the case and most of the two power supplies disposed in the accommodating space according to the first embodiment. FIG. 7B is a cross-sectional view of the server in FIG. 7A. FIG. 8 is a cross-sectional view of the server with the lid disposed on the case and the power supplies disposed in the accommodating space according to the first embodiment. FIG. 9A is a perspective view of the server with the lid disposed on the case and the power supplies removed from the accommodating space according to the first embodiment. FIG. 9B is a cross-sectional view of the server in FIG. 9A.

In FIG. 6A and FIG. 6B, when the lid 130 is detached from the case 110, there is no any external force applied on the pressed sheet spring 210 and the first blocking sheet spring 220 so that the bending sections 212 and 222 are normally bent. Therefore, the bending sections 212 is protruded from the first surface 122a of the top plate 122, and the bending sections 222 is protruded into the accommodating space 150 from the second surface 122b.

When the power supply 300 is inserted into the accommodating space 150 along a direction of an arrow A, the bending sections 222 of the first blocking sheet spring 220 prevents the power supply 300 from being disposed in the accommodating space 150. That is, the bending sections 222 which is bent blocks the way for the installation of the power supply 300. Therefore, when the user tries to insert the power supply 300 into the accommodating space 150 with the lid 130 being detached from the case 110, the protecting component 200 is favorable for blocking the power supply 300 from electrically connected to the motherboard, and thereby preventing the user from electric shock.

In FIG. 7A and FIG. 7B, when the lid 130 slides along a direction of an arrow B and a direction of an arrow C in sequence to be disposed on the case 110, the bending section 212 of the pressed sheet spring 210 is pressed by the lid 130 so as to be flattened. The bending section 212 pressed by the lid 130 drives the connecting sheet 230 to slide away from the fastening section 211 along a positive direction of the Y-axis, and thereby the connecting sheet 230 flatten the bending section 222 of the first blocking sheet spring 220. When the bending section 222 is flattened, the bending section 222 is removed from the accommodating space 150 so that the power supply 300 is capable of being inserted into the accommodating space 150 along the direction of the arrow A. Therefore, the user is prevented from electric shock when the lid 130 is disposed on the case 110.

In FIG. 8, when the power supply 300 is located in the accommodating space 150, the power supply 300 pushes the fastening end 242 of the second blocking sheet springs 240 upward (along a positive direction of a Z-axis) so that the fastening end 242 is abutted against the side of the first fastening component 132 closer to the opening 160 than the other side. Therefore, the lid 130 is prevented from being detached along the positive directions of the X-axis and the Y-axis in sequence so as to further prevent the user from electric shock.

In FIG. 9A and FIG. 9B, when the power supply 300 is removed from the accommodating space 150 along a direction of an arrow D, the fastening end 242 of the second blocking sheet springs 240 is moved away from the first fastening component 132 along the negative direction of the Z-axis since the power supply 300 stops pushing the fastening end 242. Therefore, since the power supply 300 is removed, the user is capable of detaching the lid 130 along the directions of the arrow E and F in sequence without any risk of electric shock.

In this embodiment, the protecting component 200 is assembled on the top plate 122 of the cover 120, but the disclosure is not limited thereto.

In the first embodiment, the two bending sections of the pressed sheet spring and the first blocking sheet spring are located at two sides of the top plate that are opposite to each other, respectively, but the disclosure is not limited thereto. Please refer to FIG. 12, which is a cross-sectional view of a protecting component assembled on a cover according to a fourth embodiment.

In this embodiment, the top plate 122 has a guiding slot 122d located at a side of the top plate 122 further away from the base 111 than the other side. The top plate 122 further has a second through hole 122f located near the guiding slot 122d. The two bending sections 211 and 221 of the pressed sheet spring 210 and the first blocking sheet spring 220 are fastened to the side of the top plate 122 further away from the base 111 than the other side. The connecting sheet 230 of the protecting component 200 is slidably disposed in the guiding slot 122d so that the connecting sheet 230 is capable of moving towards or moving away from the fastening section 212 and the fastening section 222 along the Y-axis of the coordinate system, thereby forming a movable part of the protecting component 200. The pressed sheet spring 210 and the first blocking sheet spring 220 are bent or are flattened simultaneously when the movable part moves relative to the top plate 122 of the cover 120. Furthermore, when the bending sections 211 and 221 are bent, the bending section 212 is protruded from the first surface 122a of the top plate 122, and the bending section 222 is protruded into the accommodating spaces 150 from the second surface 122b of the top plate 122.

According to the disclosure, the server includes the protecting component, and the bending sections of the pressed sheet spring and the first blocking sheet spring of the protecting component are bent or flattened simultaneously. When the lid presses the bending section of the pressed sheet spring, both of the bending sections are flattened and the bending section of the first blocking sheet spring is removed from the accommodating space so that the power supply is capable of being inserted into the accommodating space. When the lid is removed, both of the bending sections are bent normally and the bending section of the first blocking sheet spring is protruded into the accommodating space so that the power supply is prevented from being inserted into the accommodating space. Therefore, when the user tries to insert the power supply into the accommodating space with the lid being detached from the case, the protecting component is favorable for preventing the user from electric shock.

Furthermore, the second blocking sheet spring is slantingly connected to the first blocking sheet spring. When the lid is disposed on the case and the power supply is inserted into the accommodating space, the fastening end of the second blocking sheet spring is pressed by the power supply so as to move upward to abut against the first fastening component of the lid. Therefore, it is favorable for preventing the lid from being detached by the user when the power supply is located in the accommodating space, and thereby further preventing the user from electric shock.
