    Zorro II expansion chassis
  • two Zorro II slots
  • connects to the side expansion port, has passthrough connector
  • unbuffered design, supports only one DMA device
  • lack of buffering means that configuring information must pass from one card to the next:
    • a jumper allows use of the second slot if the first is unoccupied
    • another jumper lets using peripherals connected to the passthrough connector in case both slots are empty
  • optional internal power supply with power connector for a hard disk drive
  • does not supply -12V to the Zorro slots
  • no power switch
    variations
  • Expansion Technologies has sold it under the name ToolBox, but only Phoenix has manufacured it
  • the only difference is the logo on the chassis
