The device independent, plug-and-play expander requires no software to operate, does not occupy an SCSI ID
and features active LVD and single-ended SCSI termination.
According to StorCase one of the main features of SAF-TE is that one board accommodates up to four channels - this enables customers to implement the board without having to sacrifice more than one SCSI ID
blazing fast throughput without the headache of SCSI ID
A Fast-Wide SCSI-2 can support up to 15 devices because the adapter requires one SCSI ID
. SCSI-2 also introduced differential signaling methods: High Voltage Differential (HVD) and Low Voltage Differential (LVD).
The units come with a smart board that maps each seven-drive rack to one SCSI ID
for conserving available IDs, two SCSI host adapters, a VGA monitor, keyboard, mouse, hard drive, and network interface card.
With traditional SCSI ID
addressing technology, a computer system is limited to just seven drives per SCSI channel.
The standard method of arbitration for parallel SCSI is that the highest SCSI ID
on the bus always wins arbitration.
Host systems see the CD-R cluster as a single SCSI device with one SCSI ID
. The only difference is that up to five copies may be recorded in the time it takes to do one.
The converter does not consume a SCSI ID
and is completely transparent to the hardware, software, and the operator.
The ProTower-7 also features a proprietary SCSI "LUN" Enabler which allows all seven drives to occupy a single SCSI ID
In addition, there are pinouts for assigning the SCSI ID
, powering the drive, and some control pins.
The Protower-21 also features a proprietary SCSI "LUN"" Enabler which allows seven drives to occupy a single SCSI ID
