The PEX2PCIE4L PCI/PCI Express Expansion Chassis provides a quick and simple I/O expansion solution to almost any PCI Express (PCIe) enabled system. Adding PCI/PCIe cards to a server or workstation, or providing a platform to swap cards between a mobile and desktop setup is a cost-effective and time-saving solution for maximizing the I/O capabilities of your system.

The external expansion chassis adds two full-length (38cm) PCI slots (32-bit/33MHz), as well as two PCIe x1 (single-lane) slots to a host computer through a single PCI Express connection. Providing total bandwidth up to 250MBps from the PCIe x1 host controller card allows the computer to function as though the expansion chassis cards were connected directly to the motherboard.

Backed by a 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

The Advantage
  • Control the power state of connected PCI/PCIe cards with the self-powered chassis and easily accessible on/off button
  • Install additional cards without opening your computer with the provided external expansion card slots

Useful for test systems...

I have been using one of the 2 slot PCI and 2 slot PCIe cages for some time now in order to use National Instruments test cards in a portable manner. The PCI cards tend to be cheaper, but you don't want them blocking up PC space. This allows me to move the cards, use an external power supply to support them and keep the PC clean. Fantastic product. Well made too, if you ignore the overspray internally. My only complaint, it's expensive!
