Tower series is designed to work with standard HDD enclosure supporting up to 7 targets. IT series has special platform design for heavy duplication manufacturers. It supports up to 15 targets.
There are 4 major differences between Tower and IT:
- 1. IT series supports auto power control. When the copy finishes, HDD interface's power will automatically shut down; it can guarantee not to damage HDD plugging in and removing. Because Tower series use standard HDD enclosure which supports hot swap allows HDD to pull and plug while the power is not yet completely off.
- 2. IT is a platform design which supports 2.5, 3.5" SATA HDD and IDE HDD via SATA-IDE converter. Tower series can only support3.5" SATA HDD, and 2.5 “HDD via 3.5” to 2.5” converters.
- 3. The SATA interface is consumable which may wear and tear after a period of time of usage. Tower series requires changing the enclosure by opening from the tower case. IT series will be easier by just switching the SATA connector module.
- 4. The highest speed supported from real test result. IT series is about 100MB/sec, while Tower series is 90MB/sec.
