CRU-DataPort has introduced the Data Express DE275, a low-profile, removable hard drive enclosure used to hot-swap hard drives mounted in workstations and servers deployed worldwide by government, military, commercial and industrial customers. The DE275 features design improvements suited for high shock and vibration environments, including dual lock-down thumbscrews to help stabilize and secure the removable drive carrier. Ideal applications include aerial surveillance, seaborne systems, automotive-mounted systems and uses requiring immediate data mobility. Initially constructed of aluminum to provide the lightweight performance necessary for airborne systems, a sheet-metal version of the DE275 will also be made available for customers whose applications are less weight-sensitive. The DE275 is RoHS-compliant and is available in Serial Advanced Technology Attachment and Serial Attached SCSI interfaces for high-speed 3 gigabits/sec input/output performance.
