The General Dynamics TACLANE KG-175D is also know as the TACLANE Micro. This is GD's newest, and smalled HAIPE certified INE. The Micro is small, just as its name states. You are able to rack mount these three across in a single 1U rack height, and unlike one of the competitors the devices are not 20 inches deep... They are the ultimate in small HAIPE devices, not the smallest, but certainly the smallest device with the best community support. The following information has been taken written based off of info from GD's Taclane site.

Aftermarket power supplies can also be sourced from IA Specialists Inc. at or 202-640-2623.
