The passive backplane-based, rackmount enclosure supports a wide range of passive backplanes, including segmented backplanes, supporting multiple systems in a single enclosure. Five high-output fans provide superior cooling, blowing air from front-to-rear through the enclosure. Easily serviceable 3-1/2” and 5-1/4” modular drive bays provide significant storage capacity. Dual hot swappable 350-watt power supplies provide ample redundant power. The 4U rugged enclosure was specifically designed to meet requirements for harsh environments with features like reinforced corners, power supply hold-downs, flush-mounted LEDs, and completely secured cables. Modular components like the removable drive bay modules and the removable backplane tray provide easy servicing.
