Elma Electronic (Fremont,
CA) now offers a dual drive,
VPX storage module that provides more than 2 terabytes
(TB) of storage with 1 system
slot. The new 533x family is
designed for rugged use. The
series’ controller/carrier card
configuration allows for system
expansion to meet increasing
storage needs of a variety of
applications needing high
and RAID protection.
