Add the speed and storage capabilities of 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 and RAID to your Windows or Mac system using the ARC-8050T3 4-Bay Thunderbolt 3 RAID Enclosure from Areca. Built to deliver fast, versatile connections to docks, displays, and data devices, the ARC-8050T3 is equipped with dual Thunderbolt 3 ports which offer bi-directional data transfer speeds of up to 40 Gb/s. While one Thunderbolt 3 port is used to interface with your compatible macOS 10.12+ or Windows 10/8+ system, the other can be used for daisy chaining up to five additional Thunderbolt 3 devices. Thunderbolt 3 ports can also provide power for device charging, and an integrated DisplayPort supports displays up to 4K/60 Hz.
Powered by an 800 MHz RAID-on-Chip Single-Core processor and 1GB of 800 MHz DDR3 RAM, the ARC-8050T3 has four hot-swappable 3.5" SAS-2 6 Gb/s and SATA III 6 Gb/s drive bays that support 3.5" hard drives and 2.5" hard drives and SSDs. Once installed, these four drive bays can be configured in a variety of RAID modes, including RAID 0, 1, 3, 5, 6, and 10, each of which offers performance, data redundancy, or a combination of both. For those who do not require a RAID, Single Disk and JBOD modes are also available.
Areca's ARC-8050T3 4-Bay Thunderbolt 3 RAID Enclosure is cooled using a single 2700 rpm fan and is powered by an internal 135W power supply. Included is a Thunderbolt 3 cable, 16 x drive mounting screws (4 per drive tray), and a power cord. Protection is provided by a limited 3-year warranty.
