Expand SCSI with a SCSI RegeneratoR™  


SCSI HVD Expander allows multiplying the maximum allowable SCSI cable length. It also isolates the two SCSI bus segments connected to it which allows hot-swapping of SCSI devices! Expand SCSI with a SCSI RegeneratoR™.
   
SCSI Too Short? Get double, triple, or even greater bus length. Narrow/Wide SCSI Incompatibility? Put narrow and wide devices on the same bus. SCSI Devices Need Isolation? Change or remove components from the SCSI bus without affecting others


 
Now when your SCSI bus is just a bit too short, there is a simple, economical solution: a SCSI HVD expander, the Paralan RegeneratoR™. The RegeneratoR™ sends and receives SCSI transmissions at maximum sustained HVD SCSI data rate - up to 40 Mbytes/sec Ultra SCSI.

No need to modify software or hardware! Just connect your SCSI cables to a RegeneratoR™ and all devices on the bus will be available at an extra bus length. It's as easy as that!

SCSI too short?

To obtain one extra SCSI length, simply select the HVD expander model appropriate for your system, and plug in your cables. Daisy chaining of three or more RegeneratoR's is also possible, depending on model

Example of extension for Single-ended (SE) SCSI
Note: Bus length for SE SCSI varies depending upon the speed e.g. Fast, Ultra, etc. therefore the example will not show specific lengths.

To obtain one extra SCSI length, simply select the expander model appropriate for your system, and plug in your cables. Daisy chaining of three or more RegeneratoR™s is also possible, depending on model. For a full discussion on SCSI Extension see the Extending SCSI page, and the article The Case for SCSI Expanders.

Narrow/Wide SCSI incompatibility?

Wide SCSI (16-bit) may be placed on one side and narrow SCSI (8-bit) on the other side. SCSI communication will be accommodated and all lines will be properly terminated

Wide SCSI (16-bit) may be placed on one side and narrow SCSI (8-bit) on the other side. SCSI communication will be accommodated and all lines will be properly terminated.

SCSI devices need isolation?

Devices on one side of the RegeneratoR™ may be disconnected and not affect devices on the other side, as the signals on each side are isolated.

The RegeneratoR™ is not just a repeater! Cable causes timing delays of approximately 1.5 ns per foot of length. When SCSI-specified cable length is exceeded, this cable-caused delay would normally cause a system to malfunction. Logic circuitry in the RegeneratoR™ manages this delay such that disconnect, reconnect, arbitration and all other SCSI features are not affected. The SCSI signals are regenerated, reshaped, and retransmitted, all transparent to the system. Paralan's exclusive Auto Sense™, standard on all RegeneratoR™ models, automatically detects correct termination power, solving many initial installation problems.

Paralan RegeneratoR™s are completely compatible with all devices that conform to the full ANSI X3T10 standards through SPI-3 (Ultra160). They are available either as stand-alone units utilizing line voltage, or as board-level units for installation in other equipment. For a printable version of this information, please see the PDF version of this data sheet.

9 TO 5 COMPUTER: Global Value-Added Distribution of NEW, used and refurbished computer periphery by a family-owned and operated company since 1979- distributing internationally computer related peripherals on the new, used and refurbished levels. HP, Compaq, IBM, CISCO, 3COM, APPLE, SEAGATE, and other major branded products as well as a MAJOR focus on Mass Storage related drives, media, storage racks, tri-optic barcode labels, libraries, autoloaders, duplicators, jukeboxes, HBA's, JBOD, Raid, SAN, NAS and software solutions.

As our stock of NEW, used and refurbished storage equipment changes daily, be sure to use our online chat service to get "real time" pricing from a knowledgeable sales technician. We also offer the lowest priced storage media on the net. Contact us now for drive rental, repair, duplication, software solutions or professional consultation.

*Buying refurbished can be better than buying new because flaws have been found and fixed, once it is deemed to be complete and in good working order it is repackaged to be sold at a lower price as refurbished.
