Features


The Node Pro provides an additional PCIe slot for Thunderbolt 3 computers (e.g. laptop computers) where installing an internal expansion card is not an option and for systems where there is not enough space for more PCIe cards. The Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) connection not only makes adding an external PCIe card easy but it also allows you to take the device with you to use on location and move it from one system to another. Installing and replacing the PCIe card is a simple matter of removing a few thumb screws and does not require any tools.

- Thunderbolt™ 3 for lightning fast transfer speeds up to 40 Gbps
- Dedicated DisplayPort for additional monitor to expand the workspace
- 2nd Thunderbolt port supports Thunderbolt 3, USB 3.1, and DisplayPort devices
- USB power delivery provides 60W of power to recharge compatible laptops
- Built-in 500W SFX power supply with an extra pair of 8-pin PCIe power connectors
- 1 PCIe (x16) slot supporting full-length, full-height, double-width cards
- 4 lane PCI Express 3.0 compliant interface
- Wire mesh panel to dissipate heat from cards with on-board fans
- Retractable carry handle to easily transport the device
- No tools required for installation of PCIe card



4 lane PCI Express 3.0 compliant interface


Supports PCIe Gen3 x4 cards

The PCIe (x16) slot accepts full-length, full-height, double-width cards and provides a maximum of 75W. The four PCIe Gen3 lanes and the Thunderbolt 3 interface are capable of transfer rates up to 40Gbps, providing enough bandwidth for both the internal PCIe card as well as any additional Thunderbolt devices in the daisy chain.


Two Thunderbolt™ 3 (USB-C) connectors with Power Delivery (PD)



Power Delivery (60W)

The reversible USB Type-C (USB-C) connector enhances ease of use for connecting devices with a focus on minimizing user confusion for plug and cable orientation. The Node Pro also supports power delivery (PD) over USB-C, providing up to 3A at 5V, 9V, 15V, 20V with a maximum of 60W of power to compatible laptops like the MacBook Pro (late 2016) that support charging through the USB-C cable. This allows you to recharge your battery even though the laptop is not plugged into any other power source.


Active cooling with large mesh panel



PSU fan

The fan for the power supply turns on and off automatically when needed.


Case fan


The large fan at the bottom of the case pulls out the hot air from inside the enclosure, keeping the the PCIe card cool during long hours of operation.


Mesh panel


The mesh panel provides fresh air to keep the PCIe card cool and depending on the on-board fan of the PCIe card, can be used for air intake or exhaust.


Thunderbolt connectivity


Thunderbolt™ 3

Thunderbolt 3 brings Thunderbolt to USB-C at speeds up to 40 Gbps, creating one compact port that does it all - delivering the fastest, most versatile connection to any dock, display, or data device. For the first time, one computer port connects to Thunderbolt devices, every display, and billions of USB devices. A single cable now provides four times the data and twice the video bandwidth of any other cable, while also supplying power to bus-powered devices. The Node Pro has two Thunderbolt 3 ports. The second port operates the same as a Thunderbolt 3 computer port by supporting Thunderbolt 3 (up to 5 daisy-chained), USB 3.1 (10 Gbps), and DisplayPort devices.


DisplayPort


The dedicated DisplayPort connector makes it easy to connect an additional monitor to extend your workspace. This video output capability requires a Thunderbolt 3 connection to the computer and will free up the second Thunderbolt 3 port for Thunderbolt 3 (up to 5 daisy-chained), USB 3.1 (10 Gbps), and DisplayPort devices.

Akito Node

4 June 2019
Bought this to compliment my windows tablet, works well and is really quiet. Only works with GTX and newer graphics cards. Worked with both my RTX2060 and GTX1060 cards seemlessly. Love the handle and portability wish it was slightly smaller but a pretty decent size to allow for large gpus.
