  • Three Multilane 4-channel SFF-8088 external female connectors.
  • Compatible with all 3.5" SATA hard drives, including 14TB and larger, that are compatible with the controller.
  • For JBOD operation, you can use the LSI HBA which has sufficient external connectors. RAID controllers do not, so two connection methods are supported, both requiring a controller with three SFF-8087 internal connectors:
    1. An Areca SATA, 3ware or LSI controller with three internal SFF-8087 connectors that can adjust the link speed, to be used with an internal to external adapter bracket that is installed right next to the controller.
    2. Any controller using SFF-8087 to SFF-8088 internal to external cables, with cables permanently attached to the controller. This method restricts the external available cable length to about 2ft for 1m cables and 5ft for 2m cables.
  • Trayless operation - the slots will accept bare SATA drives for hotswapping.
  • 320W power supply
  • 3 80 mm cooling fans, additional internal cooling fans
  • Drive activity LEDs and keylock for each bay
  • Dimensions (WxDxH): 7.08"x16.77"x17.05" inches or 180x426x433 mm
  • 1 year warranty
