Use Up to Two PCIe Cards with Computers Lacking Expansion Slots

Accommodating cards up to 7.75 inches long, this compact Thunderbolt 2-to-PCIe card expansion chassis supports nearly every Thunderbolt-compatible PCIe card on the market, including double-width (PCIe card + daughter card) cards. Measuring just 6.5 inches wide by 4.6 inches tall by 11 inches long, the Echo Express SE II takes up little space wherever you work, be it in the studio, on location, at your desk, or in the edit suite. Like all Echo Express chassis, the SE II has two Thunderbolt 2 ports that support daisy chaining of up to six devices to a single port on your computer.

Built for Speed

The Echo Express SE II's Thunderbolt 2 interface takes full advantage of this increased bandwidth to ensure optimum performance from installed cards when the chassis is connected to a Thunderbolt 2-equipped computer. The SE II is fully compatible with earlier generation Thunderbolt computers as well.

Two PCIe 2.0 Slots Plus Space for a Daughter Card

The Echo Express SE II's PCIe 2.0 slots support two half-length+, full-height, single-width PCIe cards, or one single-width card plus one double-width card. Some specialty cards, such as RME's HDSPe MADI FX card, Blackmagic Design's DeckLink 4K Extreme, and the Lynx AES16e 50, include a daughter card that mates with and provides additional external connections to the main card. The daughter card occupies the adjacent PCIe card space without filling a slot.

Cool Design Outside and In

The Echo Express SE II's aluminium outer shell securely protects the cards inside and helps transfer heat away from them. The large and quiet, temperature-controlled fan automatically speeds up and slows down smoothly as needed, so there's no guesswork in deciding which switch position to select. The enclosure is ventilated front and back to facilitate airflow over the cards.

Nearly Every Thunderbolt-Compatible Card Supported

With its ability to accommodate cards up to 7.75 inches long, the Echo Express SE II supports nearly every Thunderbolt-compatible card available. PCIe 1.1, PCIe 2.0, and PCIe 3.0 cards are supported.

Strong Link in the Chain

These Sonnet solutions support daisy chaining of additional Thunderbolt technology-enabled peripherals such as an additional Echo Express, the Apple® Thunderbolt Display, video capture devices, and data storage devices. For connected devices requiring extra power, 10 watts is provided through the daisy chain port to peripherals.

Avid Qualified | Media Composer

The Echo Express SE II is Avid qualified. It has been tested and approved for use with Media Composer/Symphony.
