Now the case of the SQP electronic raid.
It was made from a plastic box. This box go in a place out of my eyes. No need a beautiful work of cosmetic aspect...
For the 2 drives i have used the structure from a Apple G5 alluminium case.
It's a good structure, easy removing drive and very little space used.. Fantastic.
The structure with the 2 drives go to a spring plane, to avoid problem with great vibrations.
The drives are along from the raid box because spring plane and future fans are under construction..
2x Sata cable of 1mt lenght are used for the signal and the equivalent for the power.
The SQP raid have 1 FW400 port, 2x FW800 ports and 1 USB2 port. The USB2 port is unused. The other ports work fine for me to obtain a little FW Hub.
This is the drives assembly.. you can see the use of thermo shrinking girdle...
All the objects togheter..
Raid box close and power cord to the inverter..
The total current at 12V drained from the power supply is 1,7A with the 2 drives on, according to the power supply indicators..
Final wiring of the power cord. The little 2 pole connector is for the power cord of RME FireFace400
Another photos of the tree objects.
This is the wire for power in from the car...
End of the work...
Sorry for my terrible english...
