Nexcopy unveiled an all new CF Duplicator System
Nexcopy Corporation unveiled its latest range of flash memory duplication systems, introducing the CF Duplicator 150PC, 300PC, and 450PC models. These PC-based solutions offer an ideal method for efficiently handling bulk data loading onto Compact Flash cards.
Nexcopy’s CF duplication systems boast unique features designed to streamline data loading tasks. For instance, users can easily assign unique files to each CF card using the Unique Data Copy function. Additionally, bootable Compact Flash cards can be copied effortlessly using the bit-for-bit Short Image copy function. This function ensures that only the data clusters used on the CF card are copied to the target devices, rather than the entire contents.
Moreover, Nexcopy offers a Full Image copy function for scenarios where it is required. This feature proves beneficial for Ext2 or Ext3 Linux formats, where files could potentially reside in any sector of the CF media.
Nexcopy Inc.’s CF Duplicator line begins with the CF150PC model priced at $1,200, with an upgrade path available to the 30-port and 45-port systems. Thus, the CF Duplicator boasts a modular design.
Nexcopy also highlights the flexibility to mix and match duplicator boxes. This enables users to copy to SD media, CF media, and USB sticks simultaneously through a single software interface, providing convenience and efficiency.
