When you try to design a perfect server or computer system, you may not have thought about choosing a perfect drive cable. A perfect drive cable can make a big difference in airflow and thermal performance for your server (especially for those 1U “pizza boxes”), and it translates to saving your electricity bill and extending the lifetime of cooling fans, drives, and other components in it.
To simplify this cable design process, we have created a configurator that guides you to come up with the right specifications for your SATA cable needs in terms of connector type, length, wire gauge, and label when ordering with Pactech.
I’ve created a short tutorial video to show you how the configurator works:
In the coming weeks, we are going to launch additional configurators for other cable types, such as SAS cables and SAS-to-SATA fanout cables. If you have any suggestion, we love to hear from you.
