Chapter 1 - Product Introduction
1. Overview
This HDD duplicator IT series is a high-end industrial standard hard drive
duplicator that makes HDD duplication fast and easy. There is no computer or
additional software required. The full line HDD duplicators support from 3 targets
to 30 targets. Support high data transfer speed up to 90MB per second, and it
takes one minute to copy around 5GB content. The three different copy modes
(System and Files, All Partition and Whole HDD) can satisfy various needs of
duplication; "System and Files" copy mode is fast copy mode to copy only data
area instead of copying entire source HDD, it can greatly save elapsing time.
Applying smart power control technology, When copying finished, the machine
will automatically cut off the power of each port to protect HDD during removal
from the duplicator. The power of each port will be only be output when the
operation is started. Besides Quick/Full Erase, it provides with DoD Erase and
DoD EraseComp, which can completely erase the data from hard drives
complying with Department of Defense standard (DoD 5220) and guarantee
the data was completely deleted. As well as this, the modularized interface
can remarkably reduce the time of repair and operation.
2. Features
●● Three copy modes: "System and Files", "All Partition" and "Whole HDD" copy
modes.
●● Smart power control technology, automaticaiiy power off when remove the
HDD from the duplicator.
●● High speed of copy, it takes for 1 minute around 4~5GB, 8 hours for 2TB
Data.
●● Support DoD Erase to wipe out data efficiently.
●● Easy firmware updating without complex procedure.
●● Instant power on and off. Easy to boot up without waiting time.
●● Support full range models up to 15 targets.
●● Standalone, no PC or other installation required.
●● Modularized interface design, SATA and IDE swapable.
●● 2.5" and 3.5" SATA HDD co-exsit without requiring additional adaptor.
