Starting with our popular rackmac mini 1u rackmount enclosure as a template, we created a specially-designed 1u rack enclosure to securely house your mac mini (1) and provide it strategic airflow cooling. Then, inspired by the demand for our echo express line of thunderbolt 2-to-PCie card expansion systems, we added two PCie 2.0 expansion slots (with integrated power supply and fans) that connect to the mac mini via its thunderbolt port, included a central power hub for the mac mini and PCie slots’ power supply and finished by adding an additional thunderbolt 2 port for daisy chaining to other thunderbolt devices. For added convenience, the front panel provides a USB 3.0 port and a power button while other mac mini interface ports are extended to the back of the chassis and mounted on the rear panel for convenient interfacing of gigabit Ethernet, HDMI and two USB 3.0 connections. The PCie expansion slots power on and off in unison with the mac mini. To support a wide range of popular mobile racks, carts and portable rack cases, the fourth generation xmac mini server is just 17.75″ deep. It supports high-performance expansion cards. Sas/sata raid controllers, pro audio and other PCie cards. Backward compatible with mac mini and other devices equipped with 10 Gbps thunderbolt technology.
