EAN: 4260217681928 - ArtNr.: 320148 - Clientadapter X8 Intern/Extern

A host adapter – plugged into a free PCIe slot in the host PC/system (Gen2 or Gen3) – is so connected to the backplane via the client adapter.

The “host adapter X8” supports 8 PCIe Gen3 lanes which are connected to the client adapter via 4 mini display port cables (2 lanes each).

A jumper can be used to select whether the cabling is inside (e.g., Case #2) or outside (Case #3, Case #4) of a case.

With Digital Devices cables, the optimal setting in the host and client adapters is done automatically.

Cable lengths from 0.5 – 7 m are possible.

There is a Low Profile and a Full Profile slot bracket available.
