Expansion for Mobile Rack Devices
Sonnet's Mobile Rack Device Mounting Kits enable you to install one full-height or two half-height 5.25" form factor mobile rack devices inside an Echo Express III-R’s or xMac Pro Server’s rackmount enclosure. You can choose one of our pre-configured kits to add to your system, or opt for the Basic Edition kit. With the Basic Edition kit, you add your own devices (up to 8” in length), host PCIe cards, and interface cables. You can install a variety of devices, including LTO tape drives, Blu-ray burners, and shuttle drive enclosures for 3.5" hard drives or 2.5" SSDs. An integrated 100W power supply powers the devices, while a quiet 80mm fan cools them. If you need to install only one half-height device, blank plates are included to allow you to cover the remaining space to keep a clean look.
Supports either one full-height or two half-height devices inside the rackmount enclosure.
Add your own devices and PCIe cards with the Basic Edition, or select one of our pre-configured kits to suit your workflow needs.
Plenty of power for installed devices.
Matching connector for nearly every device.
80 mm fan provides good airflow over the devices to cool them.
Sonnet was established in Irvine, California in 1986. Since then, we’ve pioneered and brought to market many innovative and award-winning products that enhance the performance and connectivity of Mac, Windows, and other industry-standard computers.

We have a wealth of knowledge about our current and past products. Should you ever need technical support on one of our products, contact us; we’ll be around to help you.
For the Basic Edition kit, secure your devices inside the frame using provided mounting screws. For all kits, connect power connectors and interface cables to the devices, and then route the interface cables out through the kit’s passthrough opening. Install your own (or pre-configured kit’s) PCIe card into a slot in your Echo Express III-R or xMac Pro Server, and then install and secure the mobile rack kit into the Echo or xMac enclosure. Finish the process by connecting the devices’ interface cables to the card you installed.
