The chassis consists of a sheet metal enclosure assembly containing a Backplane PCB and module runner system
This chassis assembly also includes an integral Operators (Ops) Panel, mounted at the rear.
The chassis assembly contains 16 drive bays at the front, each of which accommodates a plug-in drive carrier
module. The 16 drive bays are arranged in 4 rows of 4 drives. At the rear, the chassis assembly contains the integral
ops panel and four module bays to house two Power Supply/Cooling modules, one SCM I/O module, and one blank
SCM module filler.
The Backplane PCB provides logic level signal and low voltage power distribution paths.
