Rugged Fibre Channel & SCSI Interface Conversion Solutions

Mountain Secure Systems (MSS) can extend the life of legacy systems that utilize Fibre Channel or SCSI interfaces with its drop-in replacement conversion sled. The conversion sled mimics a 3.5” Fibre Channel or 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. Almost any drive can be selected to best meet program requirements including considerations of HD vs. SSD, capacity, pricepoint, environment, speed, endurance, and  Single Level Cell (SLC) vs. Multi-Level Cell (MLC) This convenient solution reduces the effort of locating replacement end-of-life (EOL) drives, which may or may not be available, and helps avoid the high cost of redesigning and re-qualifying the architecture of the system to utilize modern interfaces.

MSS works directly with the leading players in interface conversion and integrates their technology into our own Andes Series rugged package. Our solutions are designed to mitigate low frequency resonant vibration input to the HD/SSD, as well as provide an optimized path to conduct heat away from the drive. MSS conversion sleds can also be matched to the weight and center of gravity (CG) of the HD/SSD being replaced, which is important for systems used in flight, where it is imperative that nothing changes that would affect the original design criteria.

In addition, MSS conversion sleds incorporate an electrical barrier that prevents anything from shorting against the PCBA or HD/SSD. PCBAs are conformal coated to withstand moisture, sand, dust, etc.  And, most importantly, all MSS conversion sleds are designed and manufactured to meet AS9100 configuration control standards and are fully-functional tested to the customer’s environmental requirements prior to delivery. Please contact us for more details.
