About the Salamander Designs SA/XR20/AC

Cooling for "always on" components

Some high-performance components need effective cooling to ensure optimal operation .And for "always on" components, such as DVRs, sometimes passive cooling just isn't enough. The Salamander Designs SA/XR20/AC extended rear panel features two 120mm whisper-quiet fans to provide constant airflow. A built-in thermostat activates the fans when the temperature inside the cabinet reaches 80°. In addition to providing reliable air flow for cooling, the extended panel also adds 3-1/2" to the depth of the cabinet. The panel's designed for use with select Chameleon racks and Synergy cabinets, like the Model 237.

Product Research


Extended Rear Panel w/ Cooling Fans: This optional rear panel for Salamander Designs Synergy & Chameleon AV cabinets/stands provides extra component compartment depth and prevents heat build-up with thermostically controlled fans. The extended rear panel replaces the standard rear cabinet panel providing extra depth and even better ventilation.

Steel Construction: The Salamander Designs extended rear panel is constructed of heavy-weight black powder-coated steel with ventilation louvers.

3.5" Extra Depth: The extended rear panel provides an extra 3.5" of inside cabinet depth for larger components.

Easily Removable: The extended rear panel installs easily and is easy to remove with thumb-nuts for quick components access.

Active Cooling System: The extended rear-panel's active cooling system is designed to prevent heat buildup inside Synergy AV cabinets. The active cooling system consists of a remote thermostat and dual maintenance-free fans (120mm). When the thermostat (20" lead) is placed atop a component, the fans provide precise cooling. The fans will turn on at 80ºF interior cabinet temperature and will reach max speed at approximately 95ºF. The fans are very quiet (22 dBA) and are power consumption friendly (1W in standby mode; 4W at mid speed; 8-10W at full speed).

AC Power Adapter: The extended rear-panel's active cooling system requires an AC power outlet. An AC power adapter is included.
