The Sonnet Echo Express SEL is their smallest Thunderbolt expansion chassis offering, being Thunderbolt 2 specified and accepting a single low profile PCIe card. This makes it ideal for use with a laptop on the road having a Thunderbolt connection but lacking a PCI slot. Although it is capable of giving maximum 20Gbps Thunderbolt 2 performance, it is also backwards compatible with older 10Gbps Thunderbolt equipped hardware.The two Thunderbolt ports make it able to daisy-chain up to six devices to a single port on the host machine.
Housed in a tough aluminium casing, the Sonnet Echo Express SEL also features an efficient and quiet variable-speed cooling fan and has an Energy Save mode.

Full Performance in a Small and Light Package
Thunderbolt 20Gbps IconThe Echo Express SEL is small, light, and perfect for use in situations where only a single low-profile PCIe card is needed. Measuring a scant 4" wide by 8.4" long by 2.8" tall, the SEL was designed specifically to house one low-profile PCIe card. Many of the most popular Thunderbolt-compatible high-speed networking and storage controller cards are a perfect fit. The SEL's small size doesn't limit its performance; installed in this system, a card will perform the same as when installed in an Echo Express SE II, Echo Express III-D, or Echo Express III-R. And like the other Echo Express models, the SEL includes two Thunderbolt ports to support daisy chaining of up to six devices from a single port on your computer.
Designed for Low-Profile PCIe Cards
The Echo Express SEL supports one half-length (up to 6.6"), low-profile, single-width PCIe card. PCIe 1.1, PCIe 2.0 and PCIe 3.0 cards are supported. Do you have a card in mind but aren't sure it's compatible? We've worked closely with PCIe card manufacturers to provide a list of compatible cards on our supporting PCIe Card Thunderbolt Compatibility Chart. The chart provides an up-to-date list of cards that have been tested to be recognized over a Thunderbolt connection and compatible with Thunderbolt technology requirements.
Smart Design Inside and Out
Constructed of rugged and lightweight aluminum, the outer shell of the Echo Express SEL securely protects the PCIe card installed inside. The variable-speed, temperature-controlled fan automatically speeds up as necessary to ensure that even a hot-running card and the chassis' components remain reliably cool. Because the fan automatically speeds up and slows down as needed, there is no guesswork in setting a switch position, and no need for tools to change settings. Since Echo Express products automatically power on and off with your computer, there is no power switch on the chassis.
The Echo Express SEL was designed to be ultra-quiet so that it can be comfortably used in noise-sensitive environments. The airflow path within the chassis has been specially designed to quietly and efficiently cool the installed card with a temperature controlled, variable speed fan. The SEL is Sonnet's quietest expansion chassis yet.
Thunderbolt Cable Lock Optional
Sonnet optional Thunderbolt cable lock secures Thunderbolt connectors plugged into the Echo chassis. It is easy to install and prevents accidental cable disconnections.
