The PC-3000 SAS is a hardware-software solution intended for testing and restoring damaged HDDs with SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) or SCSI based interfaces.
The PC-3000 SAS coupled with the Data Extractor SAS forms the PC-3000 SAS/SCSI Professional System, which allows you to recover data from SAS or SCSI based HDDs. To repair these HDDs, you only need the PC-3000 SAS – for data recovery you need both the PC-3000 SAS and the Data Extractor SAS.
The PC-3000 SAS Controller
The new specialized PC-3000 SAS Controller is a PC extension board for the PCI Express x4 bus that takes two adjacent slots which allows for working with four HDDs simultaneously.
Four independent channels provide up to a 300 MB/s data transfer rate.
Working with SATA HDDs
The PC-3000 SAS controller allows you to connect SATA HDDs in read-write modes, test their surface, copy data, and make fast image copies.
Power supply adapter
The four-channel power control adapter supplies power and protects the HDD from overvoltage and current overloading. In case of any contingency the HDD power supply is switched off automatically.
Resource Management of the PC-3000 SAS board
One of the most important new features of the PC-3000 SAS is allowing for launching of the PC-3000 utility and Data Extractor tasks as separate OS processes. The "PC-3000 SAS Resource manager" software makes using the new PC-3000 SAS very easy and effective. It manages port and related process activity, controls the status of the ports, checks process conditions and kills processes if necessary. Once a process is started it can use any of the available ports on the PC-3000 SAS board. For instance, four processes can be used for every port or one process can use four ports etc.
