DS15 19" 1U Ultra compact chassis 200mm DEEP
Chassis DS15, two ways mounting in rack
Thanks to the diminutive size of Mini-ITX motherboards it was possible to make innovations in the space saving and performance for the rack mounted server market. A 2-way mounting cover and plenty of airflow space permit to fit 2 units back-to-back, effectively doubling capacity and connection options. The Mini-ITX motherboards solution's low power and temperature also mean that cooling is simplified and power supply options are greater. The DS15 chassis is equipped with PSU that has been specially designed for the DS15 in order to positively achieve the highest efficiency for both voltage conversion and freely air cooling. The efficiency is so high that the PSU operates without any heatsink! Indeed, this PSU coupled with the DS15 does not dissipate the heat so much to heatsink has been required. High efficiency fanless power supply and champion's size make DS15 the best rackmount chassis on the space-saving rackmount product market.

Order chassis with installed FanMagic controller.

  • realizes automatic-fan-speed control depending on temperature inside chassis that reduces of the fan speed as the temperature drops, minimizes the system acoustic noise, prolongs fans service life period, diminishes power consumption;
  • assures early diagnostics of fans failures and signales in case of failures.

FanMagicX controller version supports a computer control through COM port and in addition realises WatchDog timer function.
