Access points are networking devices that allow you to turn a wired Ethernet signal into a wireless signal which can be used for mobile devices like laptops, tablets and mobile phones etc.
An Air Baffle is installed within a machine to help direct air around the machine to assist cooling. When a machine only has the first processor installed, it can also be used as a blank in the spare fan slot to stop air escaping past the missing fan.
A Backplane is a circuit board containing connections (slots) for expansion boards and allows for communication between all connected boards.
Backplane Kits are usually machine specific and contain a backplane as well as additional hardware such as cables, additional boards or other mounting hardware.
These batteries are generally heavier than 1Kg and are usually larger storage cache batteries, UPS batteries and large battery packs.
Batteries generally lighter than 1Kg, typically covering the smaller internal batteries for RAID cards as well as laptop batteries.
Belts are rubber or plastic, used in printers or tape libraries where the transfer of motion from a motor to the desired device is required.

Cable Management Arm
Used for all server cable management arms which attach onto the rack hardware and stop the cables from snagging or tangling up at the rear of the machine.
Cache kits are a complete kit of parts required to add caching capabilities to either a RAID card or storage module. These usually contain a Cache Module as well as a battery and possibly a cable to join the two, although some kits allow the batteries to directly attach.
Cache modules are the memory card which usually makes up part of a Cache Kit. This is the module only so is a single item. If your looking for the module with a battery/cables etc then try Cache Kit
Board assemblies which are mounted on large metal cages. These tend to be quite bulky items.
Small metal cage assemblies such as drive cages or media cages etc. These don't contain any circuit boards. If they do then it's likely your looking for a backplane kit rather than a Cage Assembly
Rack mountable 3U disk controller units. These are machines which usually attach via fibre channel but can also attach via other means like SAS, and they are designed to manage your storage array. They don't always contain disks as the disks would normally go into a disk expansion which attaches to this unit.
Controller modules are metal canisters or ESM's, which go inside either a disk expansion unit or disk controller unit. Not to be confused with controller cards or adaptor cards as we have a separate category for those.
'Tower to Rack' or 'Rack to Tower' conversion kits are a kit of parts designed to transform a rack mount server into a desk side unit or vice versa.
Converters are small interconnecting or converting devices such as DVI to VGA or loopback connectors used for some storage products.
Daughter cards are seperate circuit boards which look like PCI cards but they have their own dedicated slot on the parent system board for them.
They range in shape and sizes but they are generally no taller than 5cm high.
Do not use adaptor or any of the PCI types for this product. Remember a Daughter Card has it's own slot. If it's a PCI slot that this card goes into then use the relevant PCI product type instead.

Used for parts that contain more than 1 fan or have additional hardware which goes with the fan.
Large fan assemblies that are mounted onto a tray assembly. Typically seen on Cisco networking chassis'
Used for ALL fibre cables.
The reason why we use this for fibre cables and don't just put them under 'Cable' is because these cables are delicate and require keeping separate from the heavier bulky cables.
Like 'Blade Module' this is for the Flex system and applies to the same hardware, eg the modules which install into the rear of the chassis.
Same as a 'Blade Server' but used for all Flex Servers or Nodes.

For use with all servers that are 16U in size. These will need to be stock on their own pallet due to their size so only use for 16U high servers. Not to be used for blade or flex chassis. Use Blade Chassis or Flex Chassis instead.
As stated in the name. This is for a rack mount server which is 4U high.
As stated in the name. This is for a server which is 5U high.
Careful that this isn't a Tower server which has just got the tower to rack kit installed. If that is the case then please use 'Tower Server 5U' instead.
Server Tower (Large 5U)
Free standing tower servers which do not initially install into a rack and that are 22.5cm wide, but later on can be converted using a tower to rack kit which then makes them a 5U rack server.
