Southco’s new P7 ejector is designed to assist in the insertion and extraction of E1.S drives.  This is said to ensure optimum performance, ergonomics and aesthetics.

The new ejectors have undergone testing through Intel’s Donahue Pass testing platform. This testing platform evaluates performance in EMI/ESD, Thermal, and LED in addition to other criteria. 

Southco’s new P7 ejectors for E1.S are designed in three sizes for 9.5, 15, and 25mm wide drives.  The ejector features a die-cast zinc lever that is retained by a nylon button.  The button is available in three standard colours and can be colour matched to the customer’s design criteria.

Southco product manager Ike Teng said: “We have developed this new ejector to meet the needs of this new and increasingly popular form factor.  We have worked closely with Intel to ensure that we maximize the design potential of the ejector. Our parts are 100% compliant with E1.S form factor defined by SNIA.”
