PCI/PCIe Card Installation

When using the Advanced Box with PCI/PCIe slots attached, you can install commercially available PCI add-on cards or PCI Express add-on cards (PCI/PCIe cards). You can install PCI/PCIe cards with the following configuration.

  Slot 1 Slot 2
PCI x 1 + PCIe x 1 PCI PCIe
PCIe x 2 PCIe1 PCIe2
NOTE: The total power consumption of PCI/PCIe cards can be up to 12 W, regardless of whether one or two cards are installed.

PCI/PCIe card dimensions

The maximum size of PCI/PCIe cards that can be installed are as follows.

  1. PCI add-on card (short length)

  2. PCI Express add-on card (half length)

  3. I/O bracket

Installation procedure

  • Remove all power from the device before removing any covers or elements of the system, and prior to installing or removing any accessories, hardware, or cables.
