WiebeTech Ships ToughTech FireWire/USB2 Desktop EnclosureProvides a new level of reliability and durability for storage users (September 22, 2004)
WiebeTech announces ToughTech FireWire desktop enclosure, which features anti-shock FlexMount protection, fanless operation with venting, and FireWire 400 / 800 / USB2 interfaces.
"ToughTech provides a new level of reliability and durability for storage users," said James Wiebe, CEO of WiebeTech. "We've provided FlexMount protection, which consists of resilient multi-point shock absorbers positioned at critical impact points.These shock absorbers work together with auto-limiting segmented screws to form an anti-shock chamber within the drive enclosure. It's really cool mechanical engineering with an attractive case."
ToughTech also features air venting ports on the bottom of the drive. The vents allow heat to be channeled directly out of the enclosure and away from the hard drive, prolonging the life of the hard drive. The main part of the enclosure is manufactured from aluminum, which efficiently dissipates heat away from the drive.
ToughTech is available in two versions: a FireWire 400 / USB2 version, and a FireWire 800 / USB2 version, which is 100% downward compatible with FireWire 400. Prices start at $79.95. Configured versions are available with capacities from 120GB to 400GB.
