Constructed using a durable steel housing and a 2 RU form factor, the Netstor 16-Bay Thunderbolt 2 Expansion Chassis from Dynapower USA provides Thunderbolt-equipped Mac systems, such as the MacBook Pro, Mac mini, iMac, and 2013 Mac Pro running Mac OS 10.6.8 and later, with sixteen 2.5" 12 Gb/s SAS and 6 Gb/s SATA drive bays that support SSDs and HDDs, two PCIe 2.0 x8 slots, and one PCIe 2.0 x4 slot. The advantage of this enclosure having full-length and full-height PCIe slots is that it will allow PCIe cards to be utilized with systems that do not have any available PCIe slots.
This expansion chassis has two integrated Thunderbolt 2 ports, each of which provides bi-directional data transfer speeds of up to 20 Gb/s. While one of these ports is used to interface with your host system, the other can be used to daisy-chain up to six Thunderbolt devices together. Using a separately sold RAID card, this expansion chassis will support RAID functionality. Cooling is provided by four 60 x 60 x 25mm fans and power is provided by a 460W PSU that operates using 90-230 VAC at 50-60 Hz and outputs +5 and +12V. Included with this expansion chassis is a 6.6' Thunderbolt cable, 16 x HDD trays, 64 x HDD mounting screws, 2 x HDD tray keys, and a power cord.
