RPC-500NE is the most cost-effective 19" 4U rackmount chassis designed for various kinds of servers, Computer Telephony Integration (CTI) and telecommunication applications.

The rugged, sturdy and well-cooled steel chassis is specially designed to withstand heavy shocks, dust, humidity, trembling vibration and extremely high operating temperature in the harsh environment.

These useful enhancements to meet the newest technology make RPC-500NE the best choice to integrate your rack-mount systems.

We enhanced RPC-500NE with a specially designed driver set to hold one NB CD-ROM and one FDD within a 3.5" drive bay, leaving more drive space for high level application.
