Sonnet XMAC STUDIO/ECHO I
Pro 3U Rackmount Enclosure with Thunderbolt to PCIe Card Expansion System for Mac Studio with Echo I Module
A Mac Studio™ delivers phenomenal processing power, outperforming computers multiple times its size and price. It also provide a lot of ports to connect things. But how do you incorporate a Mac Studio into off-the-desk professional workflows?
Sonnet’s xMac Studio integrates a Mac Studio into a compact rackmount enclosure.
EASY ACCESS TO MAC STUDIO AND PCIE CARD EXPANSION MODULE
xMac Studio is a rugged steel 3U rackmount enclosure for securing a Mac Studio with optional PCIe card expansion module in a rack. Placing the Mac Studio behind a quick and easy to remove front panel. Convenient front panel operation allows you turn Mac Studio on with its own dedicated front power button, connect USB devices through a 4-port USB-A hub. Also access the computer’s front ports and SD card slots. When equipped with an Echo III or Echo I PCIe Card Expansion Module, three rear panel locking thumbscrews allow you to easily pull out and access the module and PCIe cards through the front without removing the front panel. xMac Studio’s design enables you to connect and disconnect cables without needing to remove the Mac Studio from the enclosure.
An opening on top of xMac Studio ensures hindrance-free wireless signal access. The xMac Studio is designed to allow normal WiFi and Bluetooth wireless operation in most configurations (depending on rack type and position in rack), so you can use wireless devices and iOS® device control apps.
GO WITH THE AIRFLOW – SUPPORTS MAC STUDIO’S THERMAL DESIGN
xMac Studio secures your Mac Studio without trapping in recirculating hot rack air. Supporting its thermal design to keep it as cool in a rack as out on a desk. Ventilation holes on the enclosure’s front panel plus an enclosed chamber beneath the Mac Studio ensures the computer’s ability to draw in cool air through its base, while a completely open back enables it to expel warm air out the back unimpeded.
SECURE UP TO THREE THUNDERBOLT OR USB SSD DRIVES UNDER THE MAC STUDIO
xMac Studio provides space beneath the computer to house up to three Thunderbolt or USB SSDs (sold separately) up to 3.2 inches wide by 0.75 inch tall. Simply remove the rear access panel, apply the supplied adhesive-backed magnet to the bottom of the SSD, insert the SSD and connect it to the computer, and then reinstall the panel. The space is also suitable for other thin, bus-powered devices.
