The UltraBlock SCSI is used to acquire data from a SCSI hard drive in a forensically sound write-protected environment.
UltraBlock SCSI Kit
The UltraBlock SCSI is a FireWire/USB to SCSI Bridge Board with Forensic Write Protection. The UltraBlock SCSI can be connected to your laptop or desktop using the FireWire-A (400 Mb/s), the FireWire-B (800 Mb/s) or the USB 1.X/2.0 interface. Like the UltraBlock IDE and the UltraBlock SATA, the UltraBlock SCSI is provided with write protection enabled by default but is user configurable for Read-Only or Read-Write Operation.
FireWire-A, FireWire-B, USB (1.X/2.0)
SCSI-3 (HPDB68 Interface)
Read-Only or Read-Write
Optional adapters are available for SCSI-1, SCSI-2 and SCA devices. The cost is $20 for each adapter, or purchase the entire set in our SCSI Adapter Kit for
In Write Protect mode, the UltraBlock will prevent ANY and ALL writes from reaching the attached device. It is compatible with all Windows 98se, Windows ME, Windows 2K/XP, and any O/S that supports IEEE 1394 and has a compliant card and drivers.
In Read/Write mode (non-Write Protected), it can be used to attach a drive to be used for receiving images on your FireWire chain.
The UltraBlock is shipped by default in a Read-Only (write blocking) configuration. However, it can be configured to enable Read-Write operation as well. To prevent unwanted alteration it necessary for the customer to make a modification to the housing to enable the Read-Write operation.
OFF = Read Only (write blocking enabled)
ON = Read/Write
OFF = Unit reports errors if writes are attempted
ON = Unit suppresses errors if writes are attempted
OFF = Unit reports Write-Protect (WP) status in code page
ON = Unit supresses Write-Protect (WP) status in code page
The UltraBlock Power Supply may only be used to power one UltraBlock and one Hard Drive. Do not attempt to use a single external power supply to power more than one UltraBlock and Hard Drive.
