OMNIDrive is an external PC Card reader for SRAM, ATA Flash Cards, CompactFlash Cards (adapter required), ATA hard disks type II, SmartMedia Cards (adapter required). It is designed for harsh industrial applications and heavy duty load.


In addition to the standard printer port (SPP) OMNIDrive benefits from the bi-directional EPP-printer port which is available in nearly every PC today. Thus, a transfer rate up to 1 Mbyte/s could be achieved (comparable to SCSI). As a result, OMNIDrive is also very interesting for high-memory applications with PC Card hard disks or high capacity ATA Flash Cards. The printer port is passed through using a daisy chain mechanism and therefore can be used for other devices (e.g. printer).


OMNIDrive was designed to work together with all common PC operating systems such as MS-DOS, Windows 3.1x, Windows 95/98/Se/Me, Windows NT, Windows 2000 and NEW! Windows XP. The device drivers configure themselves depending on the available resources. This ensures trouble-free easy installation and de-installation. The international registered product ID used in the OMNIDrive guarantees a 100% correct identification of the PC Card.


Exceptional data security is achieved by special means against electrostatic discharge. In addition the device features a watchdog, low voltage monitoring and power-fail detection. Continuous checksum monitoring during data transfer provides for additional data security. A robust aluminum case protects the device and PC Card.
