Product Description

If you need to ingest or duplicate digital cinema content with DX115 DC carriers, then the CRU® RAX®215DC is a popular choice.

With its rugged metal construction, the RAX215DC JBOD was specifically designed to access digital content contained on DX115 DC carriers. The RAX215DC boasts our unique "Auto Start" feature which allows the DX115 DC drive carriers to be automatically powered up seconds after the carrier has been installed, without having to push the on/off button.

Designed for the installation of up to two DX115 DC SATA carriers, the RAX215DC is a rugged and reliable way to access your digital cinema content.

Additional features:

  • Drive activity/fault LEDs for each drive bay
  • 3-year warranty for repair
  • Free US-based customer support

A 1-bay 1U rack is also available and is designed for use with Dolby DSS220, Christie or GDC IMB & Doremi IMS systems. This version offers only 1 eSATA port for DCP ingestion and can only ingest 1 drive at a time. For a desktop alternative, see the 1-bay RTX115DC-3Q.
