DS18 19" 1U compact chassis 237mm DEEP
Chassis DS18
It is pretty amazing! This ultra compact chassis supports Mini-ITX motherboards (VIA EPIA M/ML/PD/EK) and allows to install TWO 220mm length expansion cards as well as regular 3.5" HDD. The chassis is designed in a way that I/O and power supply connectors face to the front of chassis (no need to remove the device for routing cable maintenance). Also, it is possible to cover the accessway of these connectors (see Application Notes below); that makes it possible to build dedicated system based on this chassis. Opposite mounting arrangement effectively doubles the capacity when two devices are being placed one against another (two chassis fit back-to-back in the same 1U bay). Fanless power supply, effective cooling of motherboard with low power consumption and low heating as well as comfortable connector access allow to widen the use of chassis.

I/O cards installation

Riser card is an expansion card that is used to extend a slot for an I/O card and to change the insert direction of the slot by +-90 degrees. The I/O cards are plugged into the riser card and reside parallel with the motherboard. In order to plug I/O cards in the chassis 1R or 1URx2 riser card should be installed. 1R riser card provides expansion for one slot. 1URx2 1R riser card provides expansion for two slots. Riser card is supplied as option. It is advisable to order required riser card together with chassis.

Controller TeleServ® installation

In order to install controller TeleServ it is necessary to take away panel that holds LEDs and buttons. Then, controller TeleServ DT010 (open frame) can be placed at dedicated location. Chassis should not be modified or equipped by extra clamps. Controller TeleServ is supplied as option. It is advisable to order controller TeleServ together with chassis (will be installed by manufacturer)   more about TeleServ®>>

Special blank cover application

When specialized system has been built sometimes it is reasonable to cover the accessway of I/O connectors. It makes the system more attractive and safe. It also makes the use of complete system simpler. The design of front panel allows easy coverage of I/O connectors. Since the front panel is double-layer, it is possible to place blank cover at exterior layer without interfering with connectors. There are several mount holes on the front panel. These holes allow to blank connectors in various combinations. Pictures placed below describe how to install the Z18M1 blank cover to the DS18:

Blank covers are supplied as option. It is advised to order blank covers together with chassis.

Front panel customizing
Customized front panel

To increase reability and to attractiveness of the finished product it is advised to order front panel as a custom design part. It will not only allow to blank I/O connectors not in use but also provide effective cooling through coordinated air vents and more expressive face. Also it gives chance to apply different type of motherboard. There could be ordered any quantity of chassis with custom design front panel. Thought the price per one chassis will essensially vary depending on quantity. It is more beneficial to order custom design panels starting from 50pcs. In this case the price of chassis will correspondent to the price of serial chassis or even less. However, sometimes a price is not the main goal but excelent appearance. In this case it is reasonable to order custom design panel even in small batch. Look forward to receive your order.
