The 7 Slot PCI Expansion Unit with ExpressCard/34 Host Card & Redundant PS from Magma is a 4U, rack mountable chassis that allows you to plug-in up to seven full-sized, power-demanding PCI cards and up to seven 3.5" hard drives in an external enclosure. It is a proven method to increase PCI capability without losing performance. The ExpressCard module provides easy connection to your laptop.

Even with the introduction of more robust desktop computers and servers, increased I/O capability is required by professionals. For powerful applications that require several PCI cards, simply increase the number of PCI slots in your system with the Magma PCI Expansion Unit.

With the use of computer-specific host cards, using PCI cards and hard drives becomes as simple as plug and play. All you need to do is connect the PCI Expansion Unit to the host card of your computer and turn it on. You can use the same set of PCI cards on your laptop as you do on your desktop or server by simply adding a Magma host card and connecting the cable. The auto-switching power supply allows you to work internationally by simply adding a power cord plug adapter.

Setting up your PCI cards and data in one chassis gives you an opportunity to use a consistent hardware configuration regardless of the type of computer available. Using the same set of PCI cards, regardless of location also reduces the project risks.
