Riser cage fasteners offers quick access and shock resistance

Southco has expanded its line of DZUS quick access fasteners with a new version designed for PCI riser cages that offers quick access and shock resistance when connected to next generation server chassis models

Southco’s new DZUS D9 Tech Line Quick Access PCI Riser Cage Fastener Assembly accommodates size 2U servers, supporting the new type of connector currently deployed by leading server manufacturers.

The DZUS D9 Tech Line Quick Access PCI Riser Cage Fastener Assembly features a captive, spring-loaded design and tool-free operation, locking firmly into position to provide shock and vibration resistance. The user simply pushes down on the cap while rotating 180 degrees to fasten the server cage to the mating receptacles on the chassis. Set clamping force provided by the fastener prevents over-tightening. Available in multiple colour options, the cap enables designers to designate access through an array of standard and custom colour options.

The DZUS D9 Tech Line Quick Access PCI Riser Cage Fastener Assembly is available with multiple stud lengths to ensure compatibility with a variety of PCB thickness ranges, making it easy to install, remove and replace server cards. DZUS D9 Tech Line Quarter-Turn Fasteners combine Southco’s proven quarter-turn and captive fastening technologies to create a next-generation solution that provides consistent, reliable clamping force and quick access.

According to Global Product Manager Nick Bennett, “The DZUS D9 Tech Line Quick Access PCI Riser Cage Fastener Assembly offers simple operation and is designed to secure PCI graphics, audio and storage cards. The newest addition to Southco’s DZUS Fastener series locks into position quickly and can be easily unfastened to save service time.”
