SeriTek/5PM-2SE4 External Enclosure with 4-Port PCI-X Host Adapter Bundle

Perfect for Original PCI-X Equipped Mac G5 Computers and PCI-X Equipped PC's

The SeriTek/5PM-2SE4 bundle includes SeriTek/5PM five-bay hot-swap enclosure, and one SeriTek/2SE4 4-Port Port Multiplier eSATA PCI-X Host Adapter

The SeriTek/5PM five-bay hot-swap enclosure provides a high quality SATA port multiplier (PM) enclosure design that delivers unprecedented performance and durability. This new SATA PM enclosure utilizes an innovative backplane design with no internal cabling which helps to reduce EMI. It supports all Serial ATA hard drives including the newest 1TB drives with 3.0Gbps transfer rates as well as original 1.5Gbps Serial ATA hard drives.

The SeriTek/2SE4 PM host adapter is compatible with both PCI-X and PCI bus architecture systems, and optimal performance will be delivered on PCI-X systems like Apple's Macintosh G5. It is the only SATA controller card that offers full boot capability, allowing the fastest RAID configurations to include system operations. Four hot-swappable external SATA II ports enable individual drives or RAID arrays via built-in OS RAID 0/1 software.

  • Supports high-performance storage data transfer up to 3.0Gbps (300MB/sec) per drive
  • Faster than USB 2.0 and FireWire 800
  • Additional trays are available separately for virtually unlimited storage possibilities
  • Enhanced Heat Management System for cool, reliable operation with any size hard drive
  • User selectable 3-speed fan control provides user with custom acoutical/cooling options
  • Front-panel power switch with multi-second delay to prevent accidental power-down
  • Surpasses rotational vibration and heat dissipation requirements of high RPM drives
  • Fully RAID capable: Compatible with Operating System and host adapter based RAID solutions
  • RAID arrays can span across multiple enclosures
SeriTek/2SE4 4-port PCI-X SATA PM Host Adapter Features
  • Four eSATA external ports support hot-swapping of single and RAID volumes
  • Serial ATA port multiplier support; connect up 20 drives
  • Plug-and-Play ease of use; completely self-contained booting functionality, no driver installation necessary
  • SATA II compliant, with auto-negotiation per-port data transfer of 1.5 Gbits/sec and 3.0 Gbits/sec
  • FIS-based native SATA I/O support; Connect up to 20 SATA hard drives (Note: Support for up to 20 drives requires an external enclosure built with a 5-port Port Multiplier like the FirmTek SeriTek/5PM. Use of enclosures without port multiplication, like SeriTek/2eEN4, will support up to 4 drives; each directly connected to a SeriTek/2SE4 port.)
  • Supports Mac OS X version 10.4.0 or later (Note: 10.4.6 or later is recommended, Max OS X versions 10.4.X and later have enhanced RAID capabilities)

  • Support Windows OS RAID and Linux
  • Spread Spectrum Clocking (SSC) support
  • Fully supports Apple native Mac OS X SATA implementation without SCSI emulation over SATA
  • Optimized support for Power Mac G5 PCI-X bus
  • PCI-X 1.0a compliant 64-bit at 133/100 MHz bus speeds
  • Backward-compatible with standard 32/64-bit PCI at 33MHz and 66MHz bus speeds (Best performance in 100 MHz or 133 MHz 64-bit PCI-X slot)
  • Flash-ROM; user-upgradeable firmware in minutes
  • 48-bit LBA support for drive sizes larger than 137GB
  • Bus master operation enhances CPU efficiency: The CPU is free to handle other tasks during data transfers between the PCI Bus and system memory
  • Ideal for the most demanding applications: Publishing, Audio/Video production, photo/graphics storage/editing/publishing, servers, and gaming
