SASI to SCSI  

Ordering Suspended - Please visit our NEW site http://www.3d-systems.co.uk

With Legacy Computer systems problems can often arise when replacing old or worn out tape and disk drives. The SCSI interface may actually be SASI, in which case modern SCSI devices simply will not work. Or the Host’s SCSI device driver may fail unless it gets the required SCSI 1 responses. Our SCSI/SASI Bridge can solve these issues. It interfaces to the modern drive on one side, while emulating the legacy drive to the Host on the other.

• Host Bus can be SASI or SCSI. SE or Differential
• SCSI device can be hard disk,MO,Tape or a printer
• SCSI bridge is a small format PCB in half-height 5.25” tray with display and pushbutton.
• SCSI connections to the Host and Hard drive
• Informative front panel display for set-up and real time activity.
• SCSI Bridge has several useful off-line tools, including hard drive duplication and drive testing

Pertec to SCSI  

Ordering Suspended - Please visit our NEW site http://www.3d-systems.co.uk

Our Pertec emulator solution consists of a printed circuit card allowing a Legacy Host with a Pertec style interface to attach to a modern SCSI tape drive. The SCSI tape drive will be seen as a single unit drive + formatter by the Host Computer’s Pertec adapter.

• Small format PCB converts connected SCSi Tape drive to appear as a Pertec device.
• Supports DAT. DLT, SDLT, 8mm, QIC/SLR and LTO SCSI drives.
• The SCSI interface is LVD/SE, but converters to HVD are available.
• Board is low power, using 5V only, and has an LCD display and pushbutton as a user interface.

Flash "Tape" Emulation  

Ordering Suspended - Please visit our NEW site http://www.3d-systems.co.uk

Replace a Legacy Tape drive with Flash Media that acts like a tape drive to the Host computer system. Ideal for host computer systems, that need to backup small amounts of data over a long period of time, where it can be desirable to backup data onto small and rugged removable media using a Host’s standard backup utilities.

This product utilizes a PCMCIA card to emulate a standard tape drive, and uses our standard SCSI bridge to connect a PCMCIA eject header to a Host computer such that it acts as a SCSI tape drive.


• A Virtual SCSI Tape Drive Emulation for a Compact Flash, XD, MMC, Microdrive, Memory Stick or SD card (via suitable PCMCIA adapter)

• Emulates DAT, 3490, 9-track , DLT, 8mm,SLR and many other SCSI tape drives

• Zero tape positioning times

• Allows support of modern Flash cards to Legacy systems that only support tape drives.

• Allows backup data to be stored on small and rugged media.

• Eliminates problems of slow backups shoeshining the tape drive, which eventually leads to failures.

• Uses a 10 Mbyte/sec SCSI bridge for fast backups. The controller has an integral LCD display and pushbutton for set-up and real-time status display

Legacy SCSI Drive Emulation  

Ordering Suspended - Please visit our NEW site http://www.3d-systems.co.uk

Replace old drives, such as the TKZ60, 3490 or RZ26 with low cost modern alternatives. Replacing and repairing old 9 track, 18 track 36 track drives can be problematic. Our SCSI Bridge can solve these issues. It interfaces to the modern drive on one side, while emulating the legacy drive to the Host on the other. Existing Emulations for IBM 3490, TKZ60, 5170, 5190 plus many more.


• Replacements for TKZ60 and 3490 drives.

• Host SCSI Bus can be SE or Differential

• SCSI device can be a DLT,SLR,DAT or LTO drive.


Integral off-line tape duplicator

In the case of a requirement to be able to read existing Legacy Backup tapes, these can be copied to the new media using the same SCSI Bridge. By connecting the second Tape to the target side of the SCSI Bridge, the legacy tapes can be “cloned” or copied in an off-line fashion

• SCSI bridge is a small format PCB in half-height 5.25” tray with display and pushbutton. SCSI connections to the Host and Hard drive

• Informative front panel display for set-up and real time activity.

• SCSI Bridge has several useful off-line tools, including hard drive duplication and drive testing

IBM 3590 / Fujitsu 3490E Tape Emulation  

Ordering Suspended - Please visit our NEW site http://www.3d-systems.co.uk

The 3490E series 36-track M2483N/ND and M2485N/ND/N1/ND1 tape drives were used in many applications. These drives are no longer manufactured and tape repair houses are finding increasingly difficult to get spare parts. Some applications are written to only operate with this drive, which yields a problem when the drive fails and cannot be repaired. Our Disk+Tape product is a small stand-alone disk based product that emulates a Fujitsu 3490E that will plug & play with these applications.



• A Virtual SCSI Tape Drive Emulation for a SCSI Disk, or Flash Disk.

• Emulates 3490E, IBM3590, or DLT4000 SCSI tape drives.

• Zero tape positioning times – useful for quick file positioning when reading the “tape”.
• Removable Disk drive can be treated as a single tape media
• Disks can be any size from 1Gb to 146Gb
• Disks can be solid state Flash disks—providing a rugged media.
• Eliminates problems of slow backups shoeshining the tape drive, which eventually leads to failures.
• Can be dual-ported so that two ore more Hosts can share the unit.
• The disk itself can also be saved back to a regular tape drive in an off-line fashion — simply connect the tape drive and select this function in the menu.
• Simple Plug & Play installation
• A small, lightweight alternative to the 3490E tape drive itself.
• Informative front panel LCD display shows current tape activity and write/read backup progress
