The Express is a hardware-software solution intended for diagnosing and repairing HDDs based on SATA (Serial ATA) and PATA (IDE) interfaces for numerous vendors (Seagate, Western Digital, Fujitsu, Samsung, Maxtor, Quantum, IBM (HGST), HITACHI, TOSHIBA), for various capacities (from 500 MB to 6 TB) and various form factors: 3.5″ – desktop drives, 2.5″ and 1.8″ – laptop drives.
The Express coupled with the Data Extractor Express forms the Express Professional System that enables you to recover data from SATA, and PATA (IDE) HDDs. If you wish to repair these HDDs, you need only the Express, and for data recovery you need both the Express and the Data Extractor Express.
The new powerful Express is a six-port tester-board which is inserted into a PCI-Express expansion slot. Six diagnostic ports are 4 SATA ports (data transfer speed up to 133 Mb/sec) and 2 PATA ports (speed up to 100 Mb/sec). The primary ports are SATA0 and SATA1 while SATA2 and SATA3 are switchable with the PATA ports (PATA0 and PATA1). You can connect four drives to the Express simultaneously – two SATA drives and two SATA or PATA drives, depending on your needs. Thus, you can work either with 4 SATA drives or 2 SATA and 2 PATA at the same time.
When developing the new Express system we used our “know-how”, all gained experience and requests from our users who work in data recovery. As a result, we have achieved a significant increase in performance and efficiency, making this professional product the best tool for the contemporary data recovery industry.
SATA x4 — UDMA133, UDMA100, UDMA66, UDMA33, PIO4, PIO3, PIO2, PIO1, PIO0
PATA x2 – UDMA100, UDMA66, UDMA33, PIO4, PIO3, PIO2, PIO1, PIO0
All ports are separable and independent. Performance is maintained almost at the same level even when all ports have simultaneous loads. This has become possible because of efficient use of hardware buffering of the data transferred from the 4 UDMA ports through the PCI-Express 4-channel bus.
A 4-channel Power Supply Unit is used to power the HDDs which are connected to Express. The Power Supply Unit protects the HDDs from overvoltage and overcurrent. In case of emergency, the HDDs will be powered off automatically. Furthermore, each channel has feedback with the software for monitoring the stability of +5V and +12V voltage supply and informing the user about any problems in power circuits.
The intelligent Power Supply Unit of Express has the following features for advanced HDD diagnostic and troubleshooting:
The oscilloscope functionality. You can get a graph visually representing the precise information about the current power status in real time.
This feature allows to perform advanced HDD diagnostic and determine the cause of failure.
The Power Supply Unit is equipped with a sound speaker which signals about the PC power supply unit failure or HDD overcurrent. Triggered protection system turns off the voltage on the corresponding channel.
