5 Port HPM-XU

The 5-port HPM-XU is one of the most advanced Port Multipliers in the market. Built on the exact same platform as the HPM-XA, this new port multiplier comes with a built-in eSATA and the lastest USB 3.0 interface. Using the 5-Port HPM-XU, you can connect as many as five SATA hard drives to any system via just a single eSATA or USB cable. The five hard drives can be set up to appear as five individual drives, just like connecting through a USB hub, or appear as a single RAID volume. You can also connect five SATA optical drives such as DVD-RRW or Blu-Ray drives to your system and do simultaneous data copying with this HPM via eSATA connection.

RAID configuration can be set via a set of onboard dip switches or the included software utility. The drive and HPM status can be visually monitored by attaching LEDs to the onboard LED signal pin headers or via the bundled monitoring software. Any drive failure or RAID error can be notified via audible alert from the on board buzzer and email to an SMTP account. The 5-Port HPM XU is designed to fit perfectly into the Addonics family of Storage Tower, Storage Rack and many standard multi-bay enclosures with a standard SCSI-1 connector cut out.

or Notebook system via eSATA, USB 3.0 or USB 2.0 port


The 5-Port HPM-XU can be installed onto a standard PCI slot with optional PCI Converter Bracket (PCISCBKT), allowing any desktop PC case to be used as an external hard drive storage enclosure

  • Connect up to five SATA hard drives or to any system via any eSATA port or USB 3.0 / 2.0 port
  • Connect up to five SATA optical drives to any system via PM compatible eSATA port
  • Support SATA I / II / III hard drive
  • RAID configuration in two ways
    • via onboard dip switches for simple deployment independent of OS
    • via software utility for Windows OS only
  • Integrated hardware RAID controller to maximize performance
  • Compatible with mSATA SSD, CFast card, Compact Flash™ or Micro Drive™ using Addonics family of flash card to SATA adapter
  • Compatible with SATA optical drives - support simultaneous DVD writing* on five optical drives when connecting to PM compatible eSATA port
  • RAID volume can be used as a boot drive or as additional storage
  • Multiple PMs can be daisy chained
  • Designed to fit Addonics Storage Tower, Mini Storage Tower, Storage Rack or any multi-bay drive enclosure with SCSI-1 (Centronic 50-pin) back panel
  • Supports RAID0 (Striping), RAID1 (Mirroring), RAID3, RAID5 (Parity), RAID10 (Mirrored Striped), JBOD (Concatenation), Clone Mode (N-Way Mirror) using built-in hardware RAID
  • Supports individual drive mode via eSATA* or USB connection
  • Clone mode - clone's action is similar to RAID 1, except all the hard drives connected will be mirrored. Clone mode is especially useful when users would like to copy data form a hard drive to several hard drives at the same time
  • RAID configuration via Software (avilable for Windows, Linux and Mac) or onboard dip switches
  • Software utility for Windows, Linux and Mac to monitor RAID status and setting up email notification
  • Supports hot swap when attached to USB port or eSATA port that supports this feature.
  • Drive activity LED and Error LED for Host and 5 SATA devices
  • OS independent

* Independent drive configuration and optical drive are supported only when connecting to controllers that are PM compatible. Simultaneous DVD writing was tested using the Nero Burning Rom
