The Akitio Thunder2 PCIe Expansion Chassis provides an additional PCI express x16 slot for Mac systems that do not support or have enough available space for expansion cards. This chassis can accept an expansion card that is half-length, full-height, and double-width, and it offers up to 25 watts of power to the card. It can support cards such as Ethernet adapters, Fibre channel, SAS/SATA, and more. Installing the expansion card inside the chassis is simple by using three hand-tightening screws. Furthermore, this chassis features two Thunderbolt 2 ports that allow you to daisy-chain up to 5 additional Thunderbolt devices and transfers data to and from your system at a rate of 20 Gb/s. Included with the Thunder2 PCIe expansion chassis are a Thunderbolt cable and power adapter.
