This new 5-Port HPM XA is a feature rich Hardware Port Multiplier that enables connecting up to 5 SATA drives to any SATA port. It is a perfect solution for attaching large quantity of hard drives as individual drive or as a RAID volume with redundancy to a Desktop or Server. This HPM can also be used to connect 5 SATA optical drives such as DVD-RRW or Blu-Ray drives to do simultaneous data copying. Configuration can be set via a set of onboard jumpers or the bundled software utility under Windows OS. Drive and the HPM status can be visually monitored by attaching LEDs to the onboard LED signal pin headers or via the bundled monitoring software. Any drive failure or RAID error can be notified via audible alert from the on board buzzer and email to an SMTP account.

The 5-Port HPM RXA-E is the enclosure version - fits perfectly into the Addonics family of Storage Tower, Storage Rack and many standard multi-bay enclosures with standard SCSI-1 connector cut out. The 5 hard drives inside the drive enclosure, once configurated, can be attached to any computer via high speed eSATA connection.
