Dual-Bay Hot-Swap External Serial ATA Enclosure

The SeriTek/1EN2 is a rugged, dual-bay Serial ATA (SATA) external hard drive enclosure. It provides versatile hot-swap capabilities with virtually unlimited storage possibilities in a small form-factor package. Built from the ground-up as a true Serial ATA solution, SeriTek/1EN2 features a case made of aluminum for maximum durability and heat dissipation.

SeriTek/1EN2 extends Serial ATAís storage capabilities outside of the computer chassis with flexibility on par with USB 2.0 or FireWire 800 but with much higher 1.5Gbps transfer rates. Serial ATA Hard drives can be swapped in and out of the SeriTek/1EN2 enclosure within seconds.

Allowing for true end-to-end Serial ATA capabilities, SeriTek/1EN2 is compatible with external PCI to Serial ATA host adapters such as SeriTek/1SE2. The SeriTek/1SE2 two-port host adapter, like the SeriTek/1EN2 enclosure, is designed with two shielded Serial ATA ports which meet regulatory requirements for electrostatic discharge (ESD), electromagnetic interference (EMI) emissions, and susceptibility. This ensures that a good ground path between the cables and the connectors exists to prevent any ESD discharge during cable insertion or removal.
