From the start, the Ark console has been about modularity and configurability.
A number of standard parts and modules have been designed.
These can be combined in a lot of different ways, so you can configure exactly the console you want.

We tried to make configuring the Ark console as easy as possible, but there are a lot of options and possibilities.
You may need to read through the information on this website (sorry for that).

The
Ark 8 is our fully configurable console, and can be almost any configuration you like.
To make things easier we also offer a number of preconfigured, standard configurations.

If you like to get more information or order one of our consoles, please
contact us.

Important !

Ark Console 500 slots are wide open to the inside of the console.
Contrary to a 500 series rack, these slots are vertical.
Make sure to fill these slots with 500 series modules, or to add (and fix) blank panels to the empty slots.
(blank panels are available in our webshop)

If you leave slots open, and any metal part is dropped inside the console, a lot of really bad things can happen.
You don’t want short-circuits to happen, and we don’t want having to trouble shoot which part of the console got blown up because of these short-circuits.
