The PIX-E chassis’ design ensures that the internal components stay cool for years of trouble-free operation in the most demanding environments.
By design, the PIX-E chassis gets very warm, wicking away the heat from the internal components. The chassis is made of high-strength, thermally conductive aluminum. Along with providing maximum durability, the case doubles as a heat-sink, providing excellent cooling of the inner electronics.
Since Apple® ProRes 4K video recording produces an extremely high data rate, the SpeedDrive™ produces quite a bit of heat no matter what recording medium. The SpeedDrive enclosure is expressly designed to wick the heat away from the SSD via its thermally conductive gap-pad and heat sink.
