Internal 5-port 6G Port Multiplier (PM)

The Addonics Internal 5-Port 6G PM (Port Multiplier) is the newest member in our PM family that supports SATA 3.0 6Gbps data transfer rate.  Designed to be mounted into add-on card slot of any standard desktop or low profile system, this PM connects up to 5 SATA hard drives or optical drives into a single SATA port  on a system board or on an add-in controller. The five drives appears as five independent drives or can be set as a RAID group using the RAID software of the OS or the host controller. It is a great solution for adding more drives to a computer with limited SATA ports.

  • Connect up to 5 SATA hard drives or optical drives via a single SATA port
  • Up to 6 Gbits/sec when connecting to SATA 3.0 port supporting this speed
  • Compliant with SATA 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0 specification
  • Require PM compatible SATA port or host controller (SATA port with no PM support can detect only the drive connecting to port 0)
  • Designed to be mounted onto any standard or low profile add-in card slot on a Desktop case (low profile bracket included)
  • Drives appear as five individual drives to the system (in simultaneous data transfer, the maximum data transfer is that of the slowest member of the five drives)
  • Drives can be set to RAID via the software utility of the OS or the host controller
  • Support hot swap
  • Compatible with any SATA hard drive, SSD or SATA optical drives
  • OS Support: depends on the attached SATA port

 

* Port Multiplier does not work with SATA controller that has no PM support. Check with your system supplier to confirm the PM support on your existing SATA port
