Accomodating cards of up to 7.75 inches in length, this compact expansion chassis supports a large variety of Thunderbolt-compatible PCIe cards on the market, even double-width cards, which is a PCIe card combined with a daughter card.

With a compact form factor, the Echo Express SE II takes up little space wherever you work, whether it's the studio, on location, or at your desk. Like most Thunderbolt 2 ports, the Echo Express SE II supports daisy chaining of up to six devices to a single port on your Mac.

Two PCIe 2.0 Slots Plus Space for a Daughter Card
The Echo Express SE II has two PCIe 2.0 x8 slots, which support two half-length+ (up to 7.75" long), full-height, single-width PCIe cards. You can also opt for a 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. The Echo Express SE II accommodates a daughter card's installation without wasting a slot
Thunderbolt 2 Technology
The Echo Express SE II features the 20Gbps Thunderbolt 2 interface, ensuring that even the most demanding cards will perform at their peak with the new Mac Pro and other Thunderbolt 2 technology-equipped computers to follow. It is also backward compatible with 10Gbps Thunderbolt-equipped computers
Cool Design - Outside and In
The Echo Express SE II's aluminum 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 need to guess which switch position to select. The enclosure is ventilated front, back, and bottom to facilitate airflow over the cards
Strong Link in the Chain
The Echo Express SE II supports daisy chaining of additional Thunderbolt-compatible peripherals, such as an additional Echo Express SE II, 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
Efficient Cooling
With a temperature-controlled fan, the Echo Express SE II automatically operates slowly and quietly with cooler cards and provides better cooling for hot cards
Energy Efficient
The Echo Express SE II has an energy saver mode that powers on and off automatically with the computer
Sufficient Power
The 80-watt power supply can handle any combination of PCIe cards you place in the Echo Express SE II
Durable Design
The aluminum housing of the Echo Express SE II provides portable protection for any environment

Technical Notes

  1. PCIe cards sold separately
  2. Compatibility requires the installation of Thunderbolt technology-aware drivers, available from the manufacturer. See our supporting PCIe Card Thunderbolt Compatibility Chart for a list of up-to-date compatible PCIe cards.
  3. Thunderbolt cable lock is compatible with Apple and Sonnet Thunderbolt cables.
  4. Windows requires a Thunderbolt 2 interface in the computer and in the expansion chassis to support more than two PCIe controllers. Note that some PCIe cards have a bridge to multiple controllers, so it is possible for a single dual-controller PCIe card to reach the limit if not connected via Thunderbolt 2. Not all Mac-compatible PCIe cards are also compatible with Windows. See the PCIe Card Thunderbolt Compatibility Chart for details.
  5. Models with serial numbers Gxxx and greater have one x16 slot and one x8 slot. Earlier models have two x8 slots.
