ARC-8050T3 series
(Thunderbolt 3 to 12Gb/s SAS RAID Storage)


ARC-8050T3 is the most complete 12Gb/s SAS 6/8/12-bay Thunderbolt™ 3 desktop RAID storage with RAID control capabilities solution for both PC and Mac. ARC-8050T3 incorporated on-board dual core 1.2Ghz RAID-On-Chip and with 2GB DDR3-1866 memory to deliver true high performance hardware RAID protection against drive failure. This combination helps to provide a high performance storage device perfect for the video editor working with Real time multi-stream HD and 4K workflows.

Thunderbolt™ 3 brings Thunderbolt to USB-C at speeds up to 40 Gbps, creating one compact port that does it all – delivering the fastest, most versatile connection to any dock, display, or data device. ARC-8050T3 is equipped with dual Thunderbolt 3 ports for connecting to any Thunderbolt 3-enabled host and offers an additional Thunderbolt 3 port for daisy-chaining other peripherals. The Thunderbolt daisy-chaining allows connection of up to six devices, so customers can connect ARC-8050T3 for massive amounts of video storage with a single Thunderbolt connection to their host computer.
