CRU backplanes cool disk enclosures

Connector Resources Unlimited (CRU) last month released a series of disk enclosure backplanes with a cooling technology--called temperature controlled cooling system, or TCCS--that the company claims lowers temperatures by as much as 20%. Designed for OEMs, the backplanes can accommodate most SCSI implementations, as well as CRU`s DataPort VI series of removable-drive cartridges. The cooling system uses a combination of conduction and convection techniques. Other features include no cables between drives, ball-bearing cooling fans with failure alarms, and support for 3.5-inch and 5.25-inch drives. A two-bay backplane is priced at $81; three-bay, $116; four-bay, $145.
