The crypto engine inside the Diamond Cipher enclosure handles all the encryption and decryption on the fly with no detectable performance degradation on data transfer. Using native eSATA interface, the Diamond Cipher ExDrive supports the highest performance possible today through an externally connected hard drive enclosure.

Designed for accommodating any standard 3.5" SATA/SATA II hard drive, the Diamond Cipher ExDrive provides data transfer speeds approximately three times the maximum throughput of traditional drive enclosures utilizing the standard USB or FireWire interfaces. When connected via eSATA interface, drives contained inside the durable and heat resistant Diamond enclosures are even capable of booting operating systems through a compatible eSATA port on a motherboard or add-in card.

When connected to host controllers with RAID capability, multiple Diamond Cipher ExDrives can be implemented with fault-tolerance and increased data throughput RAID configurations which can be easily relocated as external devices.

Product Highlights
  • Connect to computer via eSATA port
  • Can be used as a boot drive via eSATA connection
  • Used as an internal hot-swap removable hard drive in a 5-1/4" drive bay with Diamond drive cradles
  • No interface cabling between drive and enclosure for reliable connection
  • No switch to set between internal and external hard drive application
  • Compact size for easy transportation - slightly larger than a VCR cassette
  • Sturdy aluminum body for use in rough environments
  • Well ventilated design, good heat conduction without fan for quiet operation
  • LED for both power, drive access and cipher key activation
  • Simple hard drive installation
