RadTech Announces New Data Storage Options
January 2, 2007
RadTech, makers of iPod and mobile computing accessories and more, today announces new Impact 2.5 and 3.5 inch SATA-based hard disk drive enclosures featuring eSATA, FireWire and USB connectivity. RadTech’s DriveMate 1 inch HDD-based compact data storage solutions, available with and without hardware-based, secure token encryption, now boosted in capacity to 8.0GB in X-Wall hardware encrypted configuration.
Built RadTech tough. Impact ultra-rugged HDD enclosures provide the absolute toughest physical housings for mounting and securely fixing 2.5 and 3.5 inch hard disk drives. Capable of withstanding crush loads in excess of 4000 pounds, Impact’s 2.0 millimeter thick extruded 6075 aluminum shell and runner system with elastomer disk drive mounting mechanism ensure unparalleled physical drive protection.
Compatibility with all modern data and connection busses. Impact enclosures now accommodate all modern HDD’s, including ATA-6 and SATA-1 & 2 specification, with a full complement of bus connectivity options including USB1 & 2, FireWire 400 – 800, and eSATA (3.5in model).
Wide open throttle. Each Impact drive enclosure delivers industry-leading throughput using the latest I/O bridge chipsets from Oxford Semiconductor and Initio Corporation. Both non-encrypted, and 64-bit X-Wall hardware encrypted Impact systems transfer data as fast as the combination of installed drive and connection bus allows – up to a blistering 300 MBps utilizing the eSATA bus.
All models include built-in FireWire repeaters for reliably chaining other devices, world voltage external AC power supplies (2.5in models can be bus powered) and high-quality connection cables for all supported busses. RadTech’s ProCable, model M69P is optionally available for those wishing to use FireWire 800 devices on FW400 busses, or vice-versa.
DriveMate capacity grows to 8GB. RadTech’s wildly popular DriveMate 1 inch HDD-based compact storage modules now sport a capacity of 8GB in the X-Wall encrypted series.
DriveMate combines a tough, yet compact and lightweight enclosure with a high-speed 1 inch Hard Disk Drive. Featuring fast USB2 connectivity and a close-quarter USB port friendly connection cable, DriveMate provides useful and practical storage for users on the go.
RadTech Impact HDD enclosure pricing starts at $54.95, DriveMate starts at $74.95 USD.
