NMW 2002: Dolch offers removable hard disk drive

Fremont, Calif. - Driven by customers' security conscious needs, Dolch engineers have integrated a ruggedized removable hard disk drive into the FlexPAC multi-slot portable computer.


Fremont, Calif. - Driven by customers' security conscious needs, Dolch engineers have integrated a ruggedized removable hard disk drive into the FlexPAC multi-slot portable computer.

To ensure maximum data security and integrity, the 2.5' hard disk is shock mounted, and encased in a steel and alloy canister. Shock and vibration testing have proven that the removable hard disk is robust and reliable, even under extreme conditions. It is secured with a quick release thumbscrew.

'When the Dolch engineering team designed the removable hard disk drive into the FlexPAC, they made sure it met the ruggedness and reliability standards our customers expect from Dolch products,' commented Jim Ciardella, president. 'The shock and vibration characteristics are even better than a standard full size hard disk, thanks to shock absorbing components within the cartridge, and the inherent stability of a 2.5' hard disk drive.'

The removable hard disk drive option is available in both 20 GB and 40 GB capacities, including additional cartridges. This extends the application possibilities beyond that of simple data security, to include the option of booting different operating systems or system configurations without reformatting the hard disk or re-installing new hardware. Multiple users can secure their own hard disk drive, with personal settings, applications, and operating systems tailored to their needs.

Available immediately, all FlexPAC models can be equipped with the removable hard disk drive option.
