Title: REMOTE UNIT ASSEMBLIES FOR DISTRIBUTED COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS (DCSS) AND RELATED ACCESSING METHODS
Abstract:
Systems and related accessing methods for remote unit assemblies for distributed communications systems are provided. A support member (e.g., a support plate) is arranged to be mounted in a drop ceiling grid, and. a pivotally mounted pivot arm arranged above the support plate is configured to receive at least one electronic component. The pivot arm allows the electronic component to pivot downwardly from a ceiling structure for easier access. A slow release mechanism is configured to reduce a rate of pivotal motion of the pivot arm. A retention mechanism selectively retains the electronic component in a substantially horizontal position proximate to the support plate. A vented antenna cover below the support plate is pivotally mounted to the electronic component, with at least one pivotal link, and may include an integrated antenna.
