Magma ExpressBox 4-1U provides a rock-solid upgrade path to increase the number of PCI Express slots available to your server. You can maintain a consistent server configuration, while adding more I/O capacity and scalability with a Magma expansion chassis like ExpressBox 4-1U. Now, an almost unlimited number of PCIe cards can be attached to a single server. Moving PCIe cards outside the host computer to an expansion chassis allows server manufacturers to reduce the amount of power required in the server.

And, because ExpressBox 4-1U monitors temperature, power, and fans with alerts using SNMP and audible alarms, you can feel confident that your entire systems remains reliable, available and serviceable.

Maximize Limited Rack Space

ExpressBox 4-1U is the only expansion solution that provides four full-length PCI Express slots in a 1U rack-mount chassis and includes a hot-swappable redundant power supply and hot-swappable cooling fans. Additionally, the PCIe slots are hot-pluggable so you can replace a defective card without shutting down the system.

Easy Installation

ExpressBox 4-1U consists of a PCIe host card, a cable and 1U rack-mount enclosure. It is automatically configured by the system BIOS and all slots appear transparent to the host computer. ExpressBox 4-1U is designed to fit conveniently into a typical 4-post rack cabinet. Card retainers inside the enclosure keep your cards securely in place during transportation.

PCI Express Hot-Plug Support

Easily remove and replace PCIe cards without powering downing the server:

  • Initiate a hot-swap request without affecting the operation of the entire system
  • Any of the PCIe cards can be stopped and replaced with a replacement card
  • All slots designed to protect the PCIe card electrically in the event of its surprise removal

PCI Express Hot-Plug Support

  • Utilizes the SNMP protocol to monitor and report normal operation parameters as well as alerts and failure events
  • Audible alert for over temperature, fan failure or power supply failure

  • Attach full-length PCIe cards to servers with limited card space
