IBM EMX0 PCIe Gen3 I/O PCIe3 Expansion Drawer
 
The IBM EMX0 PCIe Gen3 I/O PCIe3 Expansion Drawer is a 4U, 19-inch PCIe Gen3 I/O drawer that provides up to 12 PCIe Gen3 adapter slots for IBM Power Systems. The IBM EMX0 PCIe3 expansion drawer is connected to a IBM Power system via one or more expansion drawer cable pairs that provide a single x16 PCIe Gen3 link between the system and the EMX0 PCIe3 expansion drawer. The number of extra PCIe slots provided and the number of expansion drawer cable pairs needed depends on the I/O module configuration of the EMX0 PCIe3 expansion drawer. The IBM EMX0 has two module bays and has one 6-Slot Fanout Module (EMXF or EMXG) that reside in each module bay. Two 6-slot modules provide a total of 12 PCIe Gen3 slots. Each fanout module is connected to a PCIe3 Optical Cable Adapter located in the system unit over an active optical cable (AOC) pair.
 
The IBM EMX0 PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion Drawer has two redundant, hotplug power supplies that have their own power cord. The two power cords plug into a Power supply conduit which connects to the power supply. The single-phase AC power supply is rated at 1030 Watt and can use 100-120V or 200-240V. If using 100- 120V, then the maximum is 950 Watt. It's recommended the power supply connect to a PDU in the rack. Power Systems PDUs are designed for 200-240V electrical source. The IBM EMX0 PCIe Gen3 I/O PCIe3 Expansion Drawer has fixed rails which can accommodate racks with depths from 27.5 inches to 30.5 inches.

The IBM EMX0 is supported on the following IBM Power Systems: 8286-41A, 8286-42A, 8284-22A, 8408-44E, 8408-E8E, 9009-22A, 9009-41A, 9009-42A, 9080-MHE, 9080-MME, 9119-MHE, 9119-MME, 9223-22H, 9223-42H
 
The IBM EMX0 PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion Drawers has two redundant, hotplug power supplies, and each has its own power cord. The two power supply power cords plug into a conduit which connects to the power supply. The single-phase AC power supply is rated at 1030 Watt and can use 100-120V or 200-240V. If using 100- 120V, then the maximum is 950 Watt. It's recommended the power supply connect to a PDU in the rack. IBM Power System PDUs are designed for 200-240V electrical source. The drawer has fixed rails which can accommodate racks with depths from 27.5 inches to 30.5 inches. Up to four IBM EMX0 PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion Drawers per node can be attached to a Power8 server, which two 6-slot fan-out modules per drawer provides a maximum of 48 PCIe slots per system node. With 2 system nodes, up to 96 PCIe Gen3 slots (8 I/O drawers) are supported. With a 4-node Power8 server, up to 192 PCIe Gen3 slots (16 I/O drawers) are supported.
 
Note: The IBM EMX0 has a cable management bracket located at the rear of the drawer which swings up to provide service access to the PCIe adapters. 2U of space is required to swing up the bracket, therefore the drawer cannot be placed in the very top 2U of a rack.

IBM EMX0 Limitations:
The EMX0 has a cable management bracket located at the rear of the drawer which swings up to provide service access to the PCIe adapters. 2U (2 EIA) of space is required to swing up the bracket. Thus the drawer cannot be placed in the very top 2U of a rack.

There is a power cord access consideration with vertically mounted PDUs on the right hand side of the rack when viewed from the rear of the rack. The IBM EMX0 cable management bracket makes accessing some of the PDU outlets located at the same rack height as the #EMX0 drawer more challenging. Using a horizontally mounted PDU or locating the PDU or #EMX0 at a different vertical location is recommended.
