Part Number: 
QTL1177 / QTL1490

Perform full hot-swap and fault injection with 6G SAS/SATA drives

6G SAS HS Drive Module

Product Information

Provides full hot-swap automation for 6Gb/s SAS/SATA drives. The module has full control over power, data and present pins, allowing simulation of any possible hot-swap scenario.

Individual control of each signal, pin bounce and high speed glitching combine to greatly increase the number of test cases you can perform.

Drive modules can be used individually for simple bench testing, or multiple units can be used to automate an entire storage enclosure.

Each drive module requires one port on a Torridon Controller.


  • Automates full hot swap of a SAS/SATA drive
  • Simulate failures and intermittent faults
  • Improve test coverage while decreasing duration
  • Ideal for bench testing, debugging, and evaluation
  • Scales from 1 to 100+ drive modules in a test system

Technical Specification

  • Supports SAS and SATA drives up to 6Gb/s
  • Individual control over power, present and data signals
