Black Ox
Light Industrial PC Computer Case

Black Ox Introduction

The Black Ox has been designed to allow you to meet the requirements of a very broad range of applications with a single PC case. The Black Ox accepts ATX and baby AT format motherboards that accommodate up to 7 full length expansion cards. Larger systems can be configured utilizing passive backplanes that support up to 14 slots. A retaining bar is provided with the case to keep the cards in place during shipment and use. Power supply options range from the standard 230 watt supply up to a dual redundant 250 watt, hot swappable power supply system that supplies up to 450 watts in the load sharing mode.

The Black Ox's real versatility becomes evident when you consider the mounting options it provides. Use it in a vertical orientation with the included wall mount brackets to attach it to a wall or other vertical surface. Use it in a horizontal orientation with the rack mounting hardware to install it in just 4U (7") of standard equipment rack space. You can also use it as a desktop or mid-tower model by just adding the rubber feet supplied with the unit. No matter which mounting configuration you select, the rugged good looks of the Black Ox case tell your customers they have purchased high quality industrial equipment.

The Black Ox supports a large number of disk drives to provide configuration options not available on other 4U cases. It will accept up to four, externally accessible, 5 " drives, plus one internal and one external 3 " drive. That's enough space to accommodate an internal hard drive, a floppy disk drive, a RAID 5 controller with 3 hot-swap drives, plus a CD ROM drive. All drives mount in a removable sub-chassis for easy system assembly and servicing.
