Rack-mount SATA to USB 3.0 Converter

Discontinued and replaced by ADSAU31R

The rack-mount SATA to USB 3.0 Converter is a perfect solution for turning any SATA device into the latest USB 3.0 (Superspeed) or ubiquitous USB 2.0 port. SATA I, SATA II, and SATA III hard drives, SSD (Solid State Drive), and even optical drives can now be easily converted into the blazing fast USB 3.0 interface. Comes mounted on a SCIS-I bracket, this small converter can be easily mount onto any storage enclosure with standard SCSI-1 (Centronic 50 ) cut out or standard Desktop computer chassis by adding an optional PCI mounting bracket.

There is also choice of model with WRITE-PROTECT function. It is great way to ensure absolute protection on any hard drive or SSD against virus contamination or data tampering. It is a great tool for sharing drives containing important data among different users or for forensic application.
