User Guide

The Saturn ExDrive (SED) is the new generation of external hard drive kit with many improvements. The SED for SATA or SATA II hard drive is the first hard drive kit in the market that enables any SATA hard drive to be used as an external hard drive via USB, Firewire, CardBus/PCMCIA or External SATA connection. Similar to other Addonics ExDrive solution, the SED comes with the Addonics USIB connector for multiple interface support. The enclosure, comes in a compact foot print slightly larger than a VCR cassette, can also be used as a removable hard drive in conjunction with an optional Drive Cradle. There is no switches to set between internal and external hard drive applications. Constructed with strong aluminum, the SED kit is built for long durability and efficient heat dissipation.

With the choice of Saturn Cipher drive enclosure that comes with built-in bullet proof hardware encryption technology, sensitive data stored in the hard drive can be kept secure even if the hard drive is lost or stolen, Unlike software encryption, the Addonics hardware solution encrypts and decrypts data with no measurable performance degradation and yet simple to use as there is no software to install or password to remember.

The SED kit for IDE hard drive has the same features except uses standard IDE hard drive. Both the SATA and the IDE versions can share the same interface cables for external connection and the same Drive Cradle for internal removable drive application.

You can also install any 2.5" SATA hard drive into into the Saturn SATA drive enclosure using the optional 2.5" hard drive mounting bracket. Or use optional 2.5" -3.5" IDE converter kit to install 2.5" or 1.8" IDE hard drive into the Saturn IDE drive enclosure.

  • Encryption / Decryption via a hardware key , just like using a regular key to open a door.
    To enable the encryption and access the drive, simply insert the Cipher key into the keyhole of the Jupiter Cipher enclosure prior to turn on the power.
  • Simple to deploy with no training required, no software to install and no password to remember
  • Platform independency - There is no software or driver to install to use Addonics encryption products. As a result, it can be deployed in any systems running any OS. This is important in organization with multi platform computing and legacy systems.
