Cost-Effective, Ruggedized Solutions for Interface Conversions: SCSI to SATA

MSS Andes Series offers the most cost-effective solution in the marketplace to extend the life of legacy systems utilizing SCSI interfaces with its drop-in replacement conversion sled.

The conversion sled mimics a 3.5” SCSI (50, 68 and 80-pin) HD or SSD by integrating a standard, commercially-available 2.5” SATA HD or SSD into a 3.5” standard form factor package, and it meets AS9100 configuration control standards.

MSS is always open to utilizing your drive choice or recommending the proper drive for your application. Selected drive performance is dependent on OEM specification.
