Sonnet SON-ECHOEXP3FR (SONECHOEXP3FR, SON ECHOEXP3FR, SON/ECHOEXP3FR, son-echoexp3fr) Echo Express III-R Rackmount 3-slot Thunderbolt 2 Expansion Chassis for PCIe cards

Very quiet, very flexible and very necessary. Owners of Thunderbolt connected computers can now attach PCI cards externally and add massive functionality to their system. Even large, power-hungry cards are now supported by this 20Gb/s unit which also includes two 5.25-inch bays that can accept hard drives, SSDs, LTO decks and more.

Today's ultra-light notebooks, mini, and all-in-one desktop computers now have tremendous processing power–power that many thought would only be possible in full-size workstation or large desktop computers. Smaller in size and more portable, they're very desirable. With the Echo Express III-R, Sonnet has created a solution that leverages the paradigm shift enabled by Thunderbolt technology, allowing PCIe expansion slots to be connected outside a computer. This rackmount Thunderbolt-to-PCIe card expansion chassis makes it possible for you to connect three professional video capture, audio interface, SAS or SATA HBA, 16Gb or 8Gb Fibre Channel, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, and RAID controller PCIe cards to any Mac® with a Thunderbolt port.

Three Slots, No Compromise

  • Sonnet's Echo Express III-R supports three full-size PCIe cards, up to 12.28" (full-length). The III-R integrates a universal 300W power supply and includes a 75W PCIe power connector for cards that require supplementary power, such as the Avid® Pro Tools|HDX or the new RED® ROCKET-X. Even with all that power, the III-R is enviro-friendly; it automatically powers on or off whenever the connected computer powers on or wakes, or powers off or sleeps, respectively. Two Thunderbolt ports support daisy chaining of up to six devices to a single port on your computer.

Built for Speed

  • 20Gbps Thunderbolt 2 technology-equipped computers are here. The original 10Gbps Thunderbolt interface has provided breakthrough bandwidth for external expansion, more than sufficient to support the maximum performance of most PCIe cards. However, some high bandwidth cards such as the RED ROCKET, 16Gb Fibre Channel, multi-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet cards, or the use of other bandwidth-hungry cards require more than 10Gbps. The Echo Express III-R's Thunderbolt 2 interface takes full advantage of this increased bandwidth to ensure optimum performance from installed cards when the chassis is connected to a Thunderbolt 2-equipped computer. Echo Express III-R is fully compatible with earlier generation Thunderbolt computers as well.

Smart Design Inside and Out

  • Constructed of heavy-duty steel, the Echo Express III-R's enclosure not only provides secure mounting for the inner assembly and protection for the PCIe cards installed inside, but it supports maximum airflow for cooling, regardless of where it is installed in a rack. Because the fans automatically speed up and slow down as needed, there is no guesswork in setting a switch position, and no need for tools to change fan speed settings. Since Echo Express products automatically power on and off with your computer, there is no power switch needed on the chassis. The III-R includes adjustable and removable rackmount extension rails that allow the chassis to be installed securely in a variety of racks from 16" to 24" deep.

RED ROCKET Supporter

  • If you're a RED ROCKET user, you already know that the card normally takes up two PCIe slots—one for the card itself and another for the BNC connector bracket (for HD-SDI output). Sonnet designed the Echo Express III-R to accommodate the card/bracket pair in a single slot. This Echo chassis includes mounting holes designed specifically for the installation of two BNC connectors, enabling you to install the RED ROCKET card in one slot and its BNC connectors in the Echo chassis' mounting holes, leaving the two remaining slots open. The extra bandwidth afforded by the Thunderbolt 2 interface significantly doubles the ROCKET's throughput, too.

Quiet, Please

  • The Echo Express III-R was designed to be remarkably quiet so that it can be comfortably used in noise-sensitive environments and it is indeed the quietest Echo chassis yet. Its dual, ultra-quiet, temperature-controlled fans assist the natural convection of warm air through the PCIe cards.

Thunderbolt Cable Lock Included

  • Sonnet includes a lock that secures Thunderbolt connectors(3) in place plugged into the Echo chassis. It is easy to install and prevents accidental cable disconnections.

Every Thunderbolt-Compatible Card Supported

  • The Echo Express III-R supports three standard width, full-length PCIe cards, or one double-width, full-length card plus one single-width card, enabling it to support every Thunderbolt-compatible card available. PCIe 1.1, PCIe 2.0, and PCIe 3.0 cards are supported.
  • Provides PCIe Card Expansion — Use high-performance PCIe cards with Thunderbolt-equipped computers
  • Thunderbolt 2 Interface — Maximum performance with computers with Thunderbolt 2 technology, backward compatible with host computers and other devices equipped with 10Gbps Thunderbolt technology
  • Three PCIe Slots — Supports three full-length, full-height, single-width cards, or one double-width card plus one single-width card
  • Remarkably Quiet — Large, temperature-controlled, variable-speed fans that automatically cool the cards, plus computer-modeled design that reduces airflow turbulence and velocity, combine to provide quieter cooling for all cards
  • Integrated Universal Power Supply — Built-in 300W power supply with 75W auxiliary power connector
  • Rugged Steel Housing — Provides robust and secure protection for any environment
  • Every Thunderbolt-Compatible Card Supported — Works with every Thunderbolt-compatible PCIe card, regardless of length or height
